Questions about applications and software
Before you post please read this
I don't know if static is the correct word for the sounds that Pigin makes in Mint 7. It's more like your being electrocuted. It doesn't affect everyone apparently and in my case it's only pidgin that has the problem. But if you are similarly afflicted I may have a fix ( found it on Ubuntu Forums ):
Open Pidgin > Tools > Preferences > Sounds > Sound Method
Sound Command : play %s -r44100
It works for me, I hope it works for you.
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.

Appears to work for me.
My setup has PulseAudio turned off, but it was doing it under ALSA too.

I had the static sporadically in previous versions of Mint, as well. This small tweak fixed the static issue once and for all. Thanks for sharing this one.
