 +====== Setup Pidgin to Notify with the PC Speaker ======
  
 +I often have headphones connected to my Linux machine (running Ubuntu currently) but not in my ears.  When that is the case I can't hear people send me instant messages in Pidgin. ​ To solve the problem, I setup Pidgin to play sounds through the PC speaker instead. ​ Here's how.
 +
 +  * Install the "​beep"​ package.
 +  * Set the sound setting to "​command"​ and set the command to the following.
 +
 +  beep -f 2000 -l 250 -d 250 /
 +  -n -f 1000 -l 250 -d 250 /
 +  -n -f 2000 -l 250 -n -f 1500 -l 100 -d 250 -r 3
 +
 +  * select to play sounds only on "​Message received begins conversation"​
