Pidgin key bindings for emoticon

November 4th, 2008 · 1 Comment · tech

A long time ago, when I was but a wee lad, I used a program called GAIM. It was good enough for me. One of my favorite features was hitting 1 for a smiley. Some time ago they took that out.

To get it back, create a file in your ~/.purple directory called gtkrc-2.0

I put in the following:

binding “my-bindings”

{

bind “1″ { “insert-at-cursor” (“:-)”) }

bind “2″ { “insert-at-cursor” (“:-(“) }

bind “3″ { “insert-at-cursor” (“;-)”) }

bind “4″ { “insert-at-cursor” (“:-P”) }

bind “5″ { “insert-at-cursor” (“=-O”) }

bind “6″ { “insert-at-cursor” (“:-*”) }

bind “7″ { “insert-at-cursor” (“>:o”) }

bind “8″ { “insert-at-cursor” (“8-)”) }

}

widget “*pidgin_conv_entry” binding “my-bindings”
