it should only collapse the groups that are collapsed in pidgin.

I love this screenlet, but there are two key things that keep it form being perfect for me.

1.) It should launch pidgin in the background, so that it doesn't have to be running and minimized to tray for the screenlet to work.

2.) Could it use the nested buddy aliases, where you can have all of a person's account included under a single entry in the buddy list, as you can in real buddy list.

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Great suggestions both. I haven't been able to work on this for many months. Hopefully will have a bit more time now to spend on this.

I'm loving this screenlet, there is only one more thing that would make it perfect for me and that would be irc support.

Reading through the comments I saw that someone asked this a while ago and was told it wasn't a priority, I was just wondering if this has changed?

what a great screenlet! Would it be possible to "emulate" the chat windows also? i think pidgin is quite ugly.

Yeah I had thought about it.. I'll take a pass at it some time in the future, though that will basically be moving it more towards a gtk based app (though with cairo drawn widgets)

can i ask you to consider joining the screenlets dev team?

providing preset cairo drawn widget in the core would be a great feature

With version 0.31 conversation window isn't raised anymore when I click on a contact.
Is this a bug or has this feature gone ?
It was handy.
