pidgin-osd is an application to print events on the X root screen on receiving incoming messages from pidgin. pidgin-osd uses the xosd library to print various events on the X console.

Why did you start this project?

Well i am using gaim for a very long time, since four years if i remember correctly and since pidgin was released i missed a very useful feature, the on screen display. There exist a patch for gnome-osd to make use of the new purple interface instead of the old gaim one, but i am not using gnome or any of its libraries so i decide to create a new plugin.

pidgin-osd is based on the gaimnosd 0.7 version, the last public available one. This plugin is mostly like the gaimnosd plugin, the only difference is that i implemented utf-8 conversion to the current used locale. This is required if you are not using utf-8 but glib and pidgin handle incoming messages in utf-8.

What exactly is pidgin-osd?

It is a plugin for pidgin which shows incoming messages as osd (on screen display) on top of the X console.
