    pidgin back ground change

    check it out and share it with your friends =)

    the white pidgin background was freaking me out, so i decided to "skin it" and it took me longer than 1 minute so ill make it short and sweet for you

    alt + f2

    gnome-terminal

    run

    drop this block of code in the terminal

    Code:
    cat > $HOME/.purple/gtkrc-2.0 << "EOF"
    # Create a style called "inverted" where the text and base (the base color behind the widget) are the reverse of typical.
    style "inverted"
    {
    text[NORMAL] = "#FFFFFF"
    base[NORMAL] = "#000000"
    }
    
    # Apply "inverted" to conversation entry box--where you type.
    widget "*pidgin_conv_entry" style "inverted"
    
    # Apply "inverted" to conversation history pane--where you read the conversation.
    widget "*pidgin_conv_imhtml" style "inverted"
    
    widget "*pidgin_blist_treeview" style "inverted"
    EOF
    exit
    press enter

    and a restart of pidgin results in this....

    (ps im a mad man hell bent upon world domination hence the globe wallpaper)
