I checked the boxes and they weren’t the problem. Anyone else have ideas?

Thankful for your help!

  Hi Michael!

  Nice name ;)
Thanks :)

  No I'm afraid you misunderstood, I'm talking about when I get a new chat the whole window used to popup and I would see it clearly. It came in front of any program I had open so I wouldn't miss it.

  As I said on windows 8 it only flashes a bit on the program icon at the bottom of the screen.

  I wish to get the popups again if it's possible.

I did misunderstand. The option you may be looking to tweak is in the Preferences "Interface" tab. Check the "conversation window" options and make sure that "minimize new conversation windows" isn't checked and "hide new conversation windows" is set to "never" and this might get you what you want.

  Best regards

  Mikael Svensson

Please reply back to the list not me directly so the information is out there for everyone and if others have ideas they can help :)

      My name is Mikael and i am a user of pidgin. I have just gotten a new computer (windows 8) and cant find where to fix te popup problem. On windows 7 i got the popups but now i cant get them. All that happens is that pidgin flashes a bit telling me theres a new conversation, but i will and have missed this a few times already.

      Please get back to me how i can, on windows 8, do so i get popups when there’s a new conversation.


    It sounds like the plugin you're looking for is Guifications (if you're talking about the little toaster popup in the corner of your screen) and it can be found here: https://www.guifications.org/
