what type of sound format does Pidgin require?
I have posted about my problem with getting sound to come from Pidgin, and I had a thought. Is it possible that I am using the wrong file type for the sounds? I am using .wav files. If that's a bad thing, then what file format should I use?
I am also curious of some good places to find sounds for Pidgin. I can't seem to find any good sound packages.
Here is the post I posted about my problem with Pidgin:
I am using Pidgin messenger, and I am the type of person who likes sounds for when I receive messages and when people come online. I went into the preferences and chose sound files for the sound effects and everything. Although, it's still not making any noise. I chose .wav files, assuming that everything can play .wav files. How come I am not getting any sound?
I have already downloaded and installed aplay and bplay, and tried using both of them under the sound preferences in Pidgin. Neither of them work at all. I have also tried selecting ALSA, without any luck. The only setting that works is "console beep".
(btw I am using 7.10 Ubuntu)
