msn client.


I'm setting up fluxbox with quite a few mods.
Is there anybody that know of a transparent msn client?
Maybe a console based one. Any good setup for this would be great.
I've done quite a few searches, no good results yet...exists?

Don't know what you mean by transparent client but have you tried Gaim or AMSN ? there's a couple more but I can't remember the names right now....

As I am looking trough what I have written, I can very well understand you, hehe.
What I mean is a console based msn client which I can make the background transparent.

ofcourse you've tried XChat but that probably does not do msn...

you know.... this is the loooonnngggg way around the matter, but given that we have the source.... you could in theory mingle code from gaim or amsn with xchat.... or could just as easily change gaim or amsn to support a transparant background

just a thought (and you'd be famous)
