 buddy info

 by jonnale on: Nov 16 2008

This is a great screenlet. My only complaint is that you cannot get buddy info. For example, if a friend puts a link in his away message, I have to open pidgin, right click his name and then select "Buddy Info". This is not an option in the screenlet (if it is, I missed it!)

Is there a way to theme this screenlet using pixmaps? If not it owuld be great to incorporate it so people can make 100% custom themes.

 Contacts with multiple account

This screenlet is exactly what I was looking for. So far, so good, congrats !

Just one question : would it be possible to see only once a buddy present on several networks at the same time ?

For instance, I see four copies of the same person, because he has jabber+icq+aim+msn accounts ;)

I had the same issue with it, so I wrote a quick and dirty hack if you want to use it. In the definition for getGroupsAndBuddies (starts at line 192), right after the following line:

buddyId = node (line 201)

Add this:

if buddyId == self.pidgin.PurpleContactGetPriorityBuddy(self.pidgin.PurpleBuddyGetContact(node)):

And then move everything else over one tab down through self.addBuddy(buddyId)

I also added a new variable called show_toponly (just copied the code for show_offline in both PidginScreenlet.py and menu.xml) and used this line instead:

if buddyId == self.pidgin.PurpleContactGetPriorityBuddy(self.pidgin.PurpleBuddyGetContact(node)) or not self.show_toponly:

That way you can turn it off and it'll be off by default if your install is for multiple users.

It ain't pretty, but it works. A whole new class for Contacts would be far more appropriate, I think. This seems to work for me in the mean time though. I was concerned that PurpleContactGetPriorityBuddy might be static and therefore not show buddies who were logged in under an ID you didn't have as the top one, but it looks dynamic, meaning it will return the same buddy you'd get if you opened Pidgin and double clicked a Contact (i.e. The "best" priority one that's online and available), but I make no guarantees. I couldn't find the official documentation for the function anywhere.

 Pidgin not running

 by blingenfelter on: Dec 12 2008
Score 50%

I'm running Pidgin 2.4.1 and I've added pyXML... but I keep getting "Pidgin not running" instead of the screenlet.

I've looked at the bugs page - hard to find what I'm looking for. Any help would be appreciated.

BTW, I'm running Mint.

Great screenlet. Love it and a bunch of the themes available.

My only gripe is that whenever I open an IM window with the screenlet, the new window doesn't have focus. The only reason I open a window is to type/talk to the person, and having to click on the new window is kind of annoying.

After messing around with Compiz tonight, I discovered that under General Options> Focus & Raise Behavior you can set Focus Prevention Level to Off. This will fix the annoyance mentioned above.
