Free Software annoyance: Gaim

Dear Lazy Web:

I am developing a severe hatred of Gaim 2.0, because some of its dumb features hamper my productivity. Are there any simple configuration tricks that could fix the following issues:

  • How can I make Gaim stop auto-hiding its conversation windows?
  • How can I make Gaim stop auto-toping its dialogs and windows?
  • How can I make Gaim stop stealing the focus all the time?

Would you happen to know the answer to any of the above?

Best Regards,

Most of the settings you need are part of the Message Notification plugin. Tools -> Plugins -> Message Notification. You may also want to check the Conversation Window Hiding setting under Tools -> Preferences -> Interface. That should take care of most of the stuff you mentioned.

I'm going to have to do the stupid post:

Stop using Gaim.

I also can't stand a lot of the changes they made to 2.0 so I'm now using Gajim.

Just find a free jabber-to-msn or Jabber-to-aim gateway if you need that kind of access.
