Hi. I just upgraded Gaim to 0.64 and the sound events don't work. I get
'Unable to play sound because the configured sound command could not be launched: Failed to execute child process "/usr/share/sounds/gaim/recieve.wav" (Permission denied)'
I had the same problem. You have to chmod to 755 or 777 if 755 won't work. Do this:
chmod 777 -R /usr/share/sounds/gaim
And, if that doesnt work, do the same to /usr/share. It's wierd for this to happen, I know, but it works
Thanks, I did the chmod command and the error doesn't show up. However now I get no sound at all! I can change the sound events back to the beep option but that's not a solution! The sound files play fine in xmms... I'm running Ximian Desktop 2, could there be something else?
