    pidgin back ground change

    if you have not noticed, this is my ubuntu master thesis....
    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



    drop this block of code in the terminal

    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"
    press enter

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

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