It's Beeping at Me [Apr. 14th, 2004|06:06 pm]

This afternoon my Linux box started chiming at me at random. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out why. Then I noticed that if I hit F5 in the Friends window I was catching up on after a chime, there was another LJ post. Hmmm ... It would appear that Friends checking has suddenly started working for me.

Unfortunately, I was hoping that Friends checking would work by doing something with the SystemTray icon, instead of making incomprehensible noises?

Never mind

False alarm. It was actually some weird preference setting in Gaim that changed on its own.

I suppose it was an easy enough false alarm; my friends page does update often enough to be blamed for just about anything ...

Hmmm, cf is still as broken as it used to be, which means it only works with the floating indicator and not the tray.

Could it be that the floater, trying to autorise, is triggering a beep in your window manager? Try disabling just the floater and see if the noise stops.
