I've recently started using GAIM, it's awsome i gotta say.
However, do you know how to change the background in AIM Profile while using gaim?

I've tried to find the profile file, but turns out gaim doesn't store the profile, but rather compile it every time. At least i couldn't find it.

Also, if there is somebody who works on GAIM in this forum, could you leave me a personal message? I have a suggestion that I want to share with you.

Thank you.

Ok. For those who wonder i figured it out.

The following are the instruction on adding background to the AIM profile in GAIM.

For WIN XP that how you go:

Docs and Settings > User so and so > Application Data > .gaim

then you oped access.xml with a notepad and add the following to <userinfo>

&lt;body bgcolor=&quot;#FFAAFF&quot;&gt

where FFAAFF is just a color of the background that you want to have.
All that's left for you, is to figure how to write color in that format.
I forgot what it's called.

Take care !
