Smooth Separate Lines

Smooth Separate Lines

Submitted By Alexander Repty (Proculo)


Pretty much what you see in the preview is what you get here. This style is based on SimpleSeparateLines, I just changed it to look a little more smooth (at least in my opinion it does). Enjoy.


1.2: Added two more colour styles: "Grey vs. Green" and "Brown vs. Orange"
1.1: Defined the "No Time" variant and added "Pink vs. Purple" (by request)
1.0: Initial release.

Simple yet elegant - nice work!

Exactly what I was going for - something simple (and usable for copy & paste), yet something that does not look like a VT100 terminal :D

I like it. It's like a good version of the original AIM style :) I would suggest making the previews just a little bit thinner. It seems a bit silly to have the full version only be a few pixels bigger than the smaller one.

Ahh, nice and simple... I can't really think of anything that I would change!

I like how simple it is. It's not too fancy--it serves it's purpose. Good job! :]

i'm looking for more like this that are easy to copy paste.... any suggestions?

Pretty simple, and It really goes well if you need something that doesn't take up much room and is nice to have around..

Exactly what I've been looking for, but I have one small problem: when the text is copy/pasted, the time stamp shows up twice (either side of the name) - any chance of this being fixed?

I love it. Thanks for making it! :-D

My only complaint is that the RedvsBlue style's coloration is backwards from what I'm used to in Pidgin. Is there a possibility to offer a BluevsRed color scheme?

# by waf on 02/15/10 at 03:38:03

great theme, but it should display the time stamp next to the message sent

# by Sarahsitas on 05/11/10 at 01:23:26

Love this theme! Wish there were more color options, though. Perhaps the ability to set your own?

# by Smowling on 08/27/10 at 01:19:40

add to this theme background transparency and this will be it!

Still my favorite theme of all no other matches this in terms of size efficiency. At the same time, everything remains clear and easy to see, read, and understand. Thanks Alexander!
(I recently saw some artifacts when using this style - no idea if the style needs to be updated to be fully compatible the 1.4+. If yes, then it would be most wonderful if Alexander could tweak things a bit.)

Would it be possible for you to make a dark variety? I am a big IRC user and this is as close as I can get to how I prefer it to look.
