# by Dylan1077 on 08/08/06 at 01:54:24

Download it and then change the suffix of the file to .zip

the buddy icons are showing up a good 30+ px lower than they should be when i use the green speech bubble things.

# by antipeople on 08/08/06 at 12:26:39

Mine too. And the shadows aren't working on the other version.

# by Dylan1077 on 08/08/06 at 01:52:57

i can't get this 2 work, i can unzip d package when downloaded, but whenever i try 2 use it, notting happens all i get is text. help please

# by antipeople on 08/08/06 at 12:26:12

Icons are not showing up properly in any of the views. With the bubble, they are about 30px lower than the bubble, and with the non-bubble version, the shadow isn't working properly.

Well I am sorry I use Linux and I don't have Adium so I cannot test by myself. All I can say is that it works well with Kopete so I assumed it would look the same on Adium. Any help would be appreciated to correct these mistakes.

"it works well with Kopete so I assumed it would look the same on Adium"

- are they both based on similar source or am I missing something? I'd never heard of Kopete before but noticed alot of message styles for Adium in your screenshot.

When i instal Fresh my Adium crash! Why? Help me!

# by Dylan1077 on 08/10/06 at 02:00:54

That's happening to me too.

# by prach on 08/10/06 at 06:40:16

me three

# by mhjelmer on 08/11/06 at 02:18:56

me four

# by NotJustAZero on 08/11/06 at 11:10:11

Me five. I installed and now every single time I try to open Message Styles prefs the whole thing crashes on me. What has this thing DONE to my Adium?!?!?

# by prach on 08/11/06 at 14:05:53

that's the same thing that happened to me. you can fix that by going to home/library/application support/adium/message styles and then delete the fresh.adiummessagestyle file(s).

# by Dylan1077 on 08/11/06 at 16:33:35

That's what I had to do. This is very frustrating, I wish the author would fix this.

# by NotJustAZero on 08/14/06 at 12:10:34

Thanks, I was trying to go through package contents, knew that wasn't right, couldn't remember where else to look. This message style is cute but is a computer killer.

Please fix or take it off Xtras. :(

# by adamwpants on 08/11/06 at 08:26:17

Wouldn't it make more sense to have the quote bubble around the text? So that the face is saying the text, rather than their name saying their face?

# by Dylan1077 on 08/11/06 at 16:34:14


# by fissure on 08/11/06 at 17:06:05

It does look nice, but I agree that it doesn't make sense how the name is saying the face, not to mention the bright bubble around the icon draws attention away from the message which is where it should be drawn. I also don't understand why none of the screenshots are of adium. Just the fact that it's a different OS means it may display differently, right?

# by nightshrill on 08/12/06 at 08:32:03

Honestly it looks really nice, but I had the same crashing adium problem after I installed it. I'd suggest getting a mac or access to one so you can code it correctly, as I recall adium broke away from the libgaim source code a while ago, therefore that would cause some serious problems (provided I am correct, and that I am also correct in remember that kopete is also based on libgaim). So, just fix it up a bit; it's ready to fly.

# by killplay on 08/12/06 at 13:41:55

hey dude.... what theme is this?

# by edgefusion on 08/12/06 at 16:58:13

This theme is so broken it's not even funny. It could potentially be a really nice theme, but right now it just doesn't work.

# by slyydrr on 08/14/06 at 09:59:14

What confuses me is that this theme is featured on the front page, yet it doesn't work... what's up with that?

# by prach on 08/14/06 at 12:13:37

yeah, i agee. that does not make any sense. it was a waste of my time installing/crashing/restarting/crashing/figuring out what's wrong/uninstalling/coming back here to write about it... definitely should not be the featured item.

# by cbarrett on 08/14/06 at 20:21:43

Please file a ticket about this crashing on trac. Including a crash log would be MUCH appreciated. :)
