Check out my screenshot here. http://www.uploadmedia.org/page/3/6/Screenshot.png
The bottom Part of my buddy list is cut off for some reason. Do you know why this is happening? Is my list too large?
I am running Pidgin 2.4.0 with screenlets version 0.0.12.

I also had to rename some groups (zGirls,zGuys) on my buddy list because the screenlet sorts the groups alphabetically. It would be a great feature to add a ticker in the properties to enable or disable this.

also, is there a way to manually set how many pixels you want to be shown from the list? Like if i wanted to only show the first group, could i edit the source to show the top and cut off the bottom half of the list?

i dont know python but i tried changing the numbers in here "ctx.rectangle(0,0,200,800)" but it didn't do anything.

 mail notification

Some way for mail notification would be really nice to add to the screenlet. I just started using it and love how minimal the default theme is. It fits perfectly on my desktop and I can have the main window hidden, I just don't get mail motifications if it is hidden that is why a mail notification would be nice. Keep up the great work.

 Not working

 by xboxmods on: Mar 26 2008

This screenlet launches with an error saying "screenlet may not be working correctly, Try re-installing the screenlet" It loads shortly after that error message but says pidgin not running. I then restart pidgin and the screenlet still fails to detect pidgin running.

I am running pidgin 2.4.0 with screenlets 0.14 on ubuntu gutsy, no compiz or beryl and all other screenlets work.

My setup has changed.
When I first installed the screenlet, it was 0.2.2. I had pidgin 2.4.0.
I am now running pidgin 2.4.1
Since the screenlet was updated to 3, It does not do anything. Manager confirms that the screenlet IS running. but nothing pops up on the desktop now. Bad to worse.

 Good, but buggy

 by OxKing on: Mar 28 2008

Works fine, but has a few bugs.
Its the only screenlet that dont remember its position when i reboot.
It starts then always on the top of the desktop.
And you can´t put an icon below it,
cause it seems the "Window" is invisible,
but reaches to the bottom of the screen.
After rebooting i can click in the space under it,
and iam able to move it.
This happens so long as i selece a other theme or someting....
Hope it will updatet in the future,
cause it looks cool. ;)

 Made some bugfixes

 by vrunner123 on: Apr 4 2008

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)

Great screenlet but do I type with or without '=' in Compiz Manager?
