Gaim Button Patch

What is it?

I didn't like the buttons on the bottom of the gaim IM windows- I kept clicking on them accidentally when I wanted to switch to the window, and I never use them to remove, block, or warn anyone anyways.

The solution? Write a patch that disables them. There's options to display individual buttons through the gaim preferences dialog and there's also a right-click menu in the IM window to hide/show the buttons.


You can turn of all or just some of the buttons

It works in the chat windows also
It even works with gaim-encryption!


The patch has been tested on gaim cvs and gaim0.75 Get it here


Put the patch file in your gaim/ source directory and type
patch -p0 < gaim_buttons.patch
Configure, compile, and install as usual.
