Since version 2.7.0 Pidgin is using GtkStatusIcon. I guess this messed up the old scheme.

If you're using that version, just take a look at the standard <prefix>/share/pixmaps/pidgin/tray and see if there's a 'hicolor' directory in there. Take a look at it, and see the new scheming.

I'll try to adapt the Naiads to it (the icon naming have changed too) an upload it if I succeed.

BTW, thanks zima for putting up such a nice job on this one. It's been my favorite for a while now.

Ok, it wasn't hard. The only caveat is it's not working inside ~/.local/share/pixmaps/pidgin/tray. You have to install the hicolor directory inside /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/tray/.

The new package is here: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=127610.

Excellent work there, thanks!

I noticed that the status icon takes panel background color and use that. So if the panel background is grey, these icons have grey background too. The real problem appears when the panels are set to be semi transparent but for above mentioned reason, the icon background won't render to be invisible.

Could you re-pack the icons to fix this? or probably point me what needs to be done.. I am new to photo editing and also couldn't find any tutorial.

better to place this in ~/.local/share/pixmaps/pidgin/ instead of /usr/share ;)

Hey, i don't have that folder, that's why I didn't think of it... so does pidgin replace default icons with the ones put in here?

yes, replace. icons in this folder have highest priority than /usr/share/ :)

Mi sono anche sacrificato a scrivere in inglese, non avevo visto che eri italiano. Le cose che mi piacciono, vado a scoprire che sono fatte da italiani. Come le icone Meliae. Se riesci a trovare un modo meno macchinoso per inserire le icone, tipo modifica delle icone su gconf tramite impostazione custom path, renderebbe la modifica non irreversivibile.

Eh già, ho notato molti italiani attivi qua su gnome-look!
Purtroppo non dipende da me ma da come Pidgin gestisce questo tipo di icone... Ho visto che dalla versione 2.6 hanno implementato una gestione dei temi, proverò a capire un po' se esiste un modo più semplice per cambiare le icone...
