When I press "Browse" in Pidgin Configuration Page for Sound I don't get the right place of default sound file. Pidgin may use files from GTK collection. When I use Arch Linux I can use "play %s" but "play" isnot installed as default on FreeBSD.

Still find "smaller" sound :D -- Ky Anh, Huynh Homepage: http://viettug.org/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
