Hello together, a short summary what happened since the last blog entry and led me to the creation of a small Pidgin plugin.

  • I switched to linu
  • I decided to use Pidgin instant messanger
  • I hated the big, fat, ugly status bar in pidgin
  • I wasn’t able to find a plugin that hides it (and does nothing more)
  • So I wrote my own

It is just for Unix (I guess..) and you have to build it yourself. A small README is included in the tarball.

Sourcecode hidestatusbar.tar

I hope it helps anybody.

I can have a look when I get back, but atm. I don&rsquo;t use Pidgin any more. It should compile fine, though.
