View Full Version : [ubuntu] Change Pidgin Text Cursor Color

June 8th, 2008, 06:15 PM
Pretty simple question - is there a way to change the color of the cursor in Pidgin? I searched here, Google, and the pidgin website and came up with nothing. I've looked in the preferences and nothing jumps out at me.

I use text with a black background and would like to see the text cursor when typing. Obviously when I'm talking to someone with white background and I click on their text, I can see it.

Perhaps there's a plug-in that I haven't stumbled upon?

To change the GTk theme of pidgin
Open Pidgin and than GO to
Tools--> Plugins
and find for the plugin Pidgin GTK theme Control

if this plugin is already not present than first of all install pidgin plugin pack

sudo apt-get install pidgin-plugin-pack

and than try to find plugin

once the plugin is found check it and than configure it as per your desire

This must be solution for your problem :)
