New to Fedora and enjoying the heck out of it. Have been doodling with gaim and was disappointed in just one feature - or rather lack of feature. One of the things I've always liked about ICQ are the typing sounds. Is there a 'typing sounds' add on for gaim? I did check the Fedora Extras repository, but didn't see anything.

Best regards,
Bert

Hello Hiro,

Yes, believe it or not, I do. I'm so old that I grew up typing on an actual mechanical typewriter (not electric/mechanical, genuine straight mechanical!). I still have one and would use it more if I could only get the platton replaced! But, short of that, these silent electronic keyboards are awfully boring. ICQ's clicking keyboard sounds are terrific. Would love to install them into gaim!
