Continuing our series on humanity style icons for popular applications we turn out attention to the most popular Instant Messenger since the dawn of, er… sometime – Pidgin!

Not-Empathy Clones
There have been some great ‘humanity style’ icons for Pidgin made recently, but I’ve held off on posting them because they either used Empathy icons or were a bit too ‘Empathy’ like. I wanted to share something different.

Grab the icons at

Extract the icons to your /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/

  1. Hit Alt-F2
  2. type: gksu nautilus /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/
  3. Move the folders you download into ‘tray’ folder of the newly spawned window
  4. Restart Pidgin
  5. Enjoy!
