Just to let you all know I still exist Wink I have been keeping watch over the forums when I can, things are pretty busy here right now as it is end of year exam time at my university and I am taking part in Google's Summer of Code 2010.

Toucan 3 is nearly finished, I plan to try and wrap it up this weekend and hopefully attach it to the end of the release queue.

howdy all,

ok normally for the windows release I would be using libwimp for my theme of choice on PChat but since it’s horribly broken in the new release of gtk 2.20, I’ve decided to use a different theme,

so I’ve searched and searched and searched some more, and then I found murrine so I’ve compiled the engine against gtk 2.20 and used the gtrc file from Murrine-Gray and here is the end result Launcher tracker

This page is for me to keep track of bugs, enhancements etc. I want to make in the Launcher.


  • I can pretend there aren't bugs but I've got a feeling there are. I haven't heard about any in 2.0 though, which somewhat surprises me.


Direction of PChat

howdy guys,

Just a general question, as you people are the end users of PChat, in which direction would you like to see PChat go in, like what features would, you the users, would like to see in future releases if possible.

I for one am going to try and see about getting dcc fixed so that when it's used dcc actually works and also try and get a proper working tray.

Anyways let me know what you would like to see done in PChat and I'll do what I can

FOSDEM Thoughts

As promised I am going to do a quick summery of the time I had at FOSDEM 2010.

FOSDEM itself

I thought the meet-up itself was very well organised, there were lots of well manned stands, including most of the big Linux distros, all of whom gave away free CDs of which I took full advantage, they will be very helpful as soon as I get some more time to work on Toucan 3 again as the more variations I can test it on the better!

How to Report a False Positive

If an antivirus program doesn't have a link in this list, also make sure you read the comments below; there are some helpful things there. I need to update the list.

Today someone came in to our live chat support with a false positive for Blender in McAfee. I couldn't find out how to report it. So when I finally found it, I decided to try investigating more vendors and listing links for them so that they can be put into the support pages.
