Default Pidgin, buddy login message?

Is there a plugin or an option that makes a toast popup showing when a buddy logs in on Pidgin? Right now it just makes a sound and you have to look at the buddy list to see who logged in.

Check out the Guifications plugin.

I'd also look into a 'theme' for it, as the default one is very plain.

Mine works better then GAIM. Loving every minute of it.

GAIM was just the previous name, all the code is still the same. I think AOL just got their panties in a knot for some reason and wanted them to change it.

I prefer the simple msn messenger with plugins like msn plus & discovery live, cause most of my contacts are either on hotmail or on yahoo.
