MSN status window / Converstations on deskop

Post by rkng » Tue Dec 08, 2009 13:56 pm

I usually have the IRC channels that I idle in displayed on the desktop rather than within the IRC client, so it'd be cool if there was a way I could have the MSN status window and conversations open on my desktop as well.

Cheers ;D

If you go into the control panel (/msncontrol) you can untick "IRC style chat windows". This could be the sort of thing that you're after. You can't do that with the status window though unfortunately.

If this works for the chat windows, I can tell you how to do it for the status window though.

Excellent. To have the main MSN window appear on the desktop, you need to change line 87 from:

Code: Select all

window -l50k0nSz @Messenger %msn.messenger.font $shortfn($scriptdir) $+ /msn.ico
to:

Code: Select all

window -dl50k0nSz @Messenger %msn.messenger.font $shortfn($scriptdir) $+ /msn.ico
and line 90 from:

Code: Select all

window -l50k0Sz @Messenger %msn.messenger.font $shortfn($scriptdir) $+ /msn.ico
to:

Code: Select all

window -dl50k0Sz @Messenger %msn.messenger.font $shortfn($scriptdir) $+ /msn.ico
Let me know if it works!
