I would have liked to vote Psi, but until there is either better compatability with other networks, or my contacts all switch from msn to jabber, then I have to vote Pidgin.

Pidgin is good. But kopete is far better. Especially in notifying user signing in and off. Buddy pounce allows adding multiple pounces for same user. This is a problem when I right click and add pounce for a user. It also works only once after adding unless I choose recurring. This is plain confusing when compared to the neat and tidy kopete visual notifications.

I've never had a problem with that, or anything else. My vote goes to Pidgin.

Cheers

May I know how you managed it? Yes Pidgin does give notifications. But I'm having to add it for each buddy and also it gives an intrusive notification with a message box.

Am I missing something? Is there anyway to make Pidgin give polite visual notifications just like kopete.

In the Buddy List window, open the Tools -> Preferences menu and edit to your liking. It's just as configurable as any messenger I've used with Windows (AIM, MSN, Yahoo), albeit I've never tried anything else under Linux...

I'm not able to find any option there. Actually it notifies either with a sound or with an intrusive message box. I want some notification to appear near the notification area icon. So that my current job is not disturbed.

Sorry, I failed to mention that I am using an older version- I didn't suspect that they'd remove an option from an 'upgrade'.

I'm currently trying Gnome as it is more polished and well-integrated in Ubuntu than KDE.

This is one of the many things I miss in Gnome

My vote goes to Kopete... Never had any issues with it and I like the feel of it...

Konversation for IRC though...

That's what libnotify is for.
