The login notification bubble of pidgin is cool, but at sometimes it gets annoying. Till this day i was too lazy to find the option to disable it, however recently i had comment on my blog about how to disable them. After about 10 minutes of searching finally found that option. I wish pidgin developers had a easy option to configure it, anyways here is how to do it.
Notification system in Pidgin is via a plug-in called ‘Libnotify popups’. To disable notification when your contact becomes online. Go to
- Tools -> Plugins (Ctrl + U).
- Select ‘Libnotify popups’ then Configure Plugin.
- remove ‘Buddy signs on’ checkbox. Done.
