Glad to hear the feature hasn't gone. Here it bugs with screenlets 0.1 on Hardy using compiz 0.7.4 and pidgin 2.4.1.
Hope it'll be fixed soon :)
Btw, awesome work on the last version, I like the closing group feature, very cool :)

Btw, I haven't got an Ubuntu box at home (work on Arch), will try it out at work tomorrow and figure out what's wrong.

Also, I'm not using the latest Screenlets version. Maybe that is causing people some hiccups.

/waits for Arch to release the new version

sorry, I forgot to update the screenshot. it still shows the old version. next version will probably have a theme that looks like the old one and it will be easy to create own themes

The upcoming version will support theming. Should be fairly easy to create a theme for the old look without the need of any pixmaps.

I actually downloaded the fix from one of the people commenting a few pages back and it worked perfectly.

What would be great with this script now is to add transparent buddy windows when you click a name right on your desktop. That would be completely insane.

Well I love the idea of this Screenlet and I love the way it looks, However upon loading it loads between 1 and 3 instances of the screenlet for no reason. First time I loaded it I saw the bottom part of the list and there was no way to move it down to work with it. After tweaking the positioning to 852 to place it at the right side of my screen it showed up perfectly however there was a second functional Buddy list on the left along with the bottom half of a third at the top...

I cant get it to load just one screenlet where I want it. Can you make your screenlet easier to move around and maybe less buggy?

I dont know much bout programming but if theres any way I can help just tell me.

rm ~/.config/Screenlets/Pidgin/default/*

fixed it for me

First up: Excellent screenlet. Though it had some bugs that I fixed:

- reduced CPU usage
- removed excessive polling and timeouts
- using signals to detect pidgin presence
- using signals to detect changes in buddy list
- automatic height calculation
- mouse hover feedback
- Gnome only: Picks the desktop font

Download here: http://www.isi.edu/~varunr/Pidgin.tar.gz

PS: If you're using Compiz, I'd recommend going into CCSM (Compiz Settings Manager) and changing the following:
General Options->Focus & Raise Behaviour->Focus Prevention Windows = !(class=Pidgin)
