Don't be. ;)

That's actually a workable solution.

You must mean Gaim, right? ;)

Yes, there is supposed to be an icon on the toolbar. You don't see that either? :confused:

Hi...

I can't see what's on your monitor so you have to be my eyes here. ;) If I have to clarify things, please be patient.

That wasn't the icon I was referring to. Normally when you load Gaim or Pidgin, a small icon appears on the toolbar to your right, close to where the clock is and the other items loaded into memory.

If it's not there, even after you've started the program, then it's something in the settings or a problem with the program itself. If nothing else, try uninstalling and reinstalling the program through Synaptic and see what that does.

Best Regards...
