Set buddy-icon on gaim
hide | show
I had someone asking me how to set your buddy-icon (aka 'avatar') in Gaim. Today I saw someone came across my blog searching for "set picture of yourself gaim" on Google. Therefor: a short explanation about how to set up buddy-icons on Gaim :).

1. Open the account editor: press Ctrl-A or select "Accounts" in the "Tools"-menu.
2. Select the desired account: click on it.
3. Click on "Modify".
4. Drag a picture to the dialogwindow appearing or browse for it on your filesystem.

I hope this post will come up on if someone searchs for this :)

well, I know about this avatar icon in GAIM, but it seems that no other user except another GAIM user can see it :-/. I mean that ICQ*.exe users won't see it anyway.

I guess this is because ICQ doesn't support this kind of 'avatar' ?
