Couple of newbie app questions


Nothing important here, but if someone could shed some light, I'd appreciate it.

1. I'm using xmms, and every time I reload it, it goes back to the default skin and my playlist goes away. Is there a way to save the current setup? I poked around in prefs but didn't see anything that resembled it. It's not a big problem, but it's a wee pain to always have to reload my mp3 folder and pick a non-ugly skin.

2. In Evolution, is there an option to close the original message when I reply to someone?

3. Is there a better AIM solution than GAIM? I downloaded Kopete (I believe it's called) but the installer keeps dying on me and I have to kill the process. Something less ugly would be great.

Thanks a ton to all the people that helped me out so far - my system is running and looking great now.

Whoops - sorry, KDE. Latest stable version... Which I would write instead of "latest stable version", if I knew how to find out what that number was.

Look in the kcontrol center (you can get there either through your menu or by typing kcontrol in a terminal), that will tell you what version you're using (probably 3.1.4).

I use kopete 0.7.4 compiled from source and it works great. I found the slackware package was buggy but when I compiled it worked great.
