Some GAIM preferences don't work

I think that this could be a permissions problem but I'm not sure. I have a user account and with that account, I can run GAIM and setup a buddy list BUT my font preferences don't seem to take. If I try to make my font blue, it stays black. That's just one problem. I imagine that all problems are linked to one thing but since I don't know what the issue is, I can't say. Thanks, Jeremy

Do you mean when you type the font stays black, or when you actually send it, it stays black? GAIM uses html tags when you are are writing the messages so you dont actually see the changes (such as color or font size) until you have sent the message. My only other guess is that you might not be setting the color correctly. Try playing arround with the different options in the color menu to see if you can change the color.

I figured the problem out late yesterday. It was user error. I'm so embarrassed. I just didn't remember having to do the final step that got it working. Thanks, Jeremy
