Given the recent thread about problems with Pidgin, can anyone recommend another IM client? I need SameTime support, I'm afraid (done via libmeanwhile in Pidgin).
pidgin works really well with systray disabled ;)
Yes, I can confirm this.  Thank you very very much for your suggestion!

Prompt box colors

I'd like my prompt box to stand out a little more.  Is there a way to
have it use a bg/fg color that is distinct from the general (generic?)
status bar colors?

Awesome 3 from git.

tia,
Kai

You can specify an alpha channel in the color used as the titlebar
background.

You can try awful.titlebar.update(c) as a temporary fix.

Nop. Probably possible, you just need need to hack awful.prompt a bit and then
send a patch. :-)

No clue how, where or why.

Someone should take a look.

I did a quick build, and as far as I can tell, pidgin is now working
perfectly.

Many, many thanks for tracking this down, Julien.
