Would it be possible for this screenlet to be "pidgin aware" so that it only runs if pidgin is running?

Please add your stuff to launchpad. You can set up your own branch and have people get all your updates, and if you feel like it, you can add your stuff to 3rd party screenlets which will hopefully be set up as an install package. See https://code.launchpad.net/~3rd-party-screenlets-team/screenlets/3rd-party-screenlets

You can keep your stuff in a separate branch if you'd like, and then merge whenever you feel like it. I'll add you to the team if you choose to do this.
You can also keep your stuff in the main branch if that's more like your cup of tea.

Oh, and you can still keep the info here, and just keep itin synch with bzr.

I have a click issue with the 0.2.1 version : the screenlet is launched at startup, the list comes up fine when I launch pidgin, but I can't click on any contact (even no right click menu).
I need to kill the screenlet and launch it again to have it working.

And +1 to have the clicked contact bring to front (even switch to the desktop where the message window is if it's not the same).

Keep up the good work :)

Hi,
Really nice screenlet :)
I would be cool if the click on a contact brings the contact tab in front (more cool if I'm not on the desktop where my dialog window is : switch to this desk).
Yet another challenge ;)
Hope you'll figure out to do that soon.
Another cool feature would be a clicable arrow on each group to show/hide the group.

it's possible to bring the conversation-window in front (it will be included in the next version), but it's not possible to switch to a new tab. I talked with pidgin-devs about that. :(

My only problem here is... all I can do is SEE my contact list. If I want to send a message, I need to open it up again. If there were a way to double click a name and send a message it'd be dang slick because this blends with my desktop SO damn well.

Nevermind, I just figured it out (the star). Excellent work, says I!

doesn't clicking a name work too? it should. at least it works on my machine.

Upon further review, yes. Sometimes.

At first it would only work if I already had an IM window open. Now it seems to be working right.

I think I'm just confused, hah. Like I said, excellent work.

Is a way to sync this to the Pidgin buddy list so that it adds users when they come online and removes them when they sign off?

Report

It doesn't work anymore because there were api-changes in the latest pidgin-version.
I'll submit a new version later to fix it.

Very nice screenlet!
Do you mind adding chats(irc) to the list? I don't know python...

Maybe this helps:
chatroom name = pidgin.PurpleConversationGetTitle()

I will try, but highest priority is to manage making it run in the background and notice when pidgin is starting.

Hi,

it would be nice if you could make it compatible with the new gdesklets version 0.36.

I can´t install it. It says the package doesn´t includes installable files.

Thanks :)

It is a screenlet not a gdesklet :)

Sorry, but what is the goal?

Getting the list Adium contacts style?

Why something like this is already possible with plugins officers Pidgin, without resorting to Python ..

Report

I guess writing a plugin in C would be at least as much, or even a lot more complex than using python/screenlets.

Which pidgin plugin does this?

If the aim is to have a contacts-list without window decorations or buttons, and without their status as one in this picture http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/6580/immagineic5.png , then simply set Compiz-Fusion through Ccsm and Pidgin through the plug "mystatusbox".

Otherwise I do not understand what you want ..

Of course you can set the whole window's opacity, but that wouldn't make sense. I saw murrine-gtk-engine will supported transparent background soon. This might be interesting, though it will not help making the contact list themeable.

There is nothing complicated, if I have done.
However, I think it would be better to write a plugin for Pidgin, drawing inspiration from Adium, if possible, to make it work well.
Good work with your contact-list, though.

yes, something like that. I have no idea how to get it look like on that screenshot using compiz-settings. I have no idea what mystatusbox has to do with it either.
