View Full Version : [xubuntu] msn client or customize pidgin

June 4th, 2008, 05:57 AM
I know there are tons of these threads, but im getting really frustrated because none of them present any real answers. We all know Pidgin and aMSN. What I'm looking for is an msn client that is compact. I find the username list in pidgin too large and overwhelming under the resolution I use. Theres no answers anywhere on how to change it. the GTK plugin doesn't have anything useful.

Any true msn clients available?

You can use the menu in Pidgin to change the way the buddy list displays buddies. Just go up to Buddies > Show and check the ones appropriate. I found that that removing Buddy Details makes it much cleaner and easier to use.

You could try to disable offline buddies and "show buddy icons" or whatever it is called.

I suggest you to give a try to emesene (is on the repos)
I had a similar issue time ago and found this solution.
