was searching for this tip some time ago but found nothing :(
(gaim is not playing sounds on new messages when hidden to tray and when tray plugin is set not to show dialog windows before click on tray icon)

but today found a simple solution - using SmartEar plugin ...

I prefer the plugin guifications. Reminiscent of MSN Messenger's popups... but much less annoying.

I get so annoyed when I hear AIM noises comming from people's rooms every time they send/receive a message that I've come to the conclusion that all IM sounds = evil !

Well, the one reasonable one would be "Message starts new conversation" ...

about this plugin:
Quote:
Tired of rushing to the computer when you hear an IM noise, expecting an urgent message, only to find out it's your jerk cousin with news about his driveway basketball game victory? Sick of being interrupted by people you don't want to talk to? You need this plugin. With it, you can assign different sounds to play for different buddies or whole groups of buddies. SmartEar allows you to opt to play sounds when a buddy sends you an IM, signs on, returns from away or idle, or any combination of these, so you'll know by the sound what the important people are doing. You'll never have to talk to your relatives-in-law again.
