It's one of the best plugins for pidgin and can we customize the tool bar icons so that they match with the system theme ?:) thanks a lot for sharing :)

I would be glad to use the standard system icons, but some just do not have icons in the system themes (http://library.gnome.org/devel/gtk/2.13/gtk-Stock-Items.html). In early versions, wherever possible, some of them were used. But because of this approach, users are deprived of the opportunity to create their own icon themes, all the toolbar icons.
Pidgin uses, in addition to the system, and even its own set of icons (http://developer.pidgin.im/doxygen/dev/html/pidginstock_8h.html), which includes icons that just described, but no images.
You can create your own set of icons. Icons can be placed on the path /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/buttons, or ~/.purple/pixmaps/pidgin/buttons.

offtop: A couple of months ago, Google mutilated text search and image search, so I had to abandon it and move on yandex.ru, and now they have disfigured the Google translator miserable likeness Punto Switcher/gxneur. Why mutilate it is rare that you could make available for use? ??????? :(

Hi!
You need to install pidgin-dev and libpurple-dev first.
Good luck!

like others, i had problems with the statusbar and this was the solution:


> cd /usr/lib/pidgin
> sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/pidgin/toobars.so
> sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/pidgin/toobars.la

I've installed it few week ago from sources. But I use Autosize plugin simultaneously and it do not sum list height with TooBars, so scrollbars appears... If you can do something or comunicate with developers of Autosize it would be great!

I will study this problem, I just do not like it when something happens on the computer without my knowledge, even if the window size. Therefore, this plug-in I did not set. :)

Try start mystatusbox first, then - toobars.

(This plugin and thought (including) to replace the uncomfortable mystatusbox)

it's fine until i reload pidgin.. the only thing i'd wanted is the per account status set (meaning as mystatusbox has so that you can acutally see it all the time)

Maybe I have something not understood, but this plugin you can see the status for each account in the form of icons, as well as text, as well as change them.

Hi!
I guess what could be a problem.
In the new version, which I hope will be released this week, it should not.
In general, the new version is a lot of code was rewritten, and the functional change - the status can be changed through the menu. Old bugs will not, but there will be new! : D
Thank you for your message!
