didn't work for me yesterday.
It appeared to work but said I was the only one in the room whereas the web interface showed a few of you guys.

It works for me.......always has.
The instructions in the wiki are fairly good now ( they used to be a bit vague. )

it's handy having the forum as a double check to see if you are logged in though.

maybe Gaim just lies to you about beingthe only one on?
and I got impatient about nobody answer my resounding "Hi"?
will try again, although the broweser based one works fine.

Is there a way to make Gaim beep when a new message is posted to bring that fact up to my attention.

If you misspell #puppylinux you create a new chat room. You're the only one there because you're the only one who knows the name. Cool, huh?

if you use Gaim to connec to MSN, then it beeps when a message is recieved. IRC mode doesn't do this, so you have to pay attention Sad

Something happened in the last day or so. First, the Gaim configuration on my computer was zeroed, then, when I redid it, I'm suddenly the only one in the #puppylinux chat room and I'm the moderator!

Buddy List->Tools->Preferences->Sounds. Sound method is "command" and sound command is "wavplay." Check the box, "Others talk in Chat."

I stumbled across where Gaim keeps its sound files, in /usr/local/share/sounds/Gaim
