Hi! :)
Here's Andrea Cimitan (Cimi, Murrine developer)
I'm trying to compile your monkeymsn from svn, but you've forgot to upload ConfUtils.cs.
Another tip: I don't like too much the frame with with the User Info on the chat window, (too black borders for the frame, probably it's better an approach completely without the border and the different-colored frame), and the "search box" is not as good as a gtkentry... probably something like the gtkentry developed in libsexy (not present in C# i guess) would be better

Cheers, Cimi

Oops, will upload the file as soon as i get home :)

Yeah, i don´t like it very much too, i think i will remove that border. I´ve tried to implement the sexyentry from libsexy in C# but gtk-sharp does not expose the internal gdkwindow of the entry that would be required to develop this.

Thiago M. Sayão said...

Just uploaded the missing file :)

Btw, i like Murrine very much

César said...

great improvements but I can't compile it

No rule to make target `Widgets/ChatViewTagTable.cs', needed by `monkeymsn.exe'. Stop.

Thiago M. Sayão said...

Oops :)
It's fixed. This time i have tested it hehe

Your program is great, and it evolves too fast. So, first of all, thanks for doing this effort!

I'd like to make some suggestions:

-The program closes when you click on close buttons. It would be great that you could send it to the taskbar clicking this button, so the windows disappears, but monkeymessenger stills running.

-Main window shows contacts hidden by default. Every time you log in, you have to unhidde them. I think it would be great to leave contacts shown by default, and, if you want, hide them.

-It would be great too that you could click on the taskbar icon (right button) and see a menu, where you can close session, choose your status, or exit the program.

I think these suggestions would improve the program. I reported a bug too on SourceForge (1695736). What about translating the program? I'd help with it.

Well, thanks again for this great program!

Monkey Messenger is growing fast! Really nice.

I did a mockup for user information:

it seem that svn version can go to build on my FC6.
my gtk-sharp package is installed but the configure fails to check it.
even when i configure my pkg-config to do so.

Jaime Rave said...

Could you send the log??

MC-RPG said...

Your app is great, thanks.

Is there a way to get a banner in the bottom of the main window, i mean, if you think that it will help aesthetically speaking. Personally i would like to see it, you can do that you can choose to see the banner if you want.

César said...

Why would you want a banner? to show what?

Jaime Rave said...

Is not a bad idea, maybe we can show the monkey messenger logo. Not for publicity, the bottom of the main window looks empty.

César said...

If you add it make it optional because one of the things I hate about MSN is the banner, just too much space wasted. Actually is the first thing I remove from the official client and aMSN :p

I prefer a clean and simple GUI like the current one.

Thiago M. Sayão said...

I don't see why someone would want a banner. Tell me a use case of this and if it's good i will add it :)

Empty is better than filled with useless things :)

Patrick said...

Hi there!

I can't compile it... I get this error:
Got a SIGSEGV while executing native code. This usually indicates
a fatal error in the mono runtime or one of the native libraries
used by your application.

make[1]: *** [monkeymsn.exe] Aborted
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/patrick/monkeymessenger/monkeymsn'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I'm on ubuntu feisty. Any idea? Monkeymsn problem or ubuntu's builds one?

Thanx for the time

@ Jaime Rave
Sorry for the late

Jaime Rave said...

In the log is the error, you need to install gtk-sharp 2.10

Package requirements (gtk-sharp-2.0 >= 2.10.0) were not met:

I was able to compile monkeymsn from svn, but when i try to run it, i get this message:

Unhandled Exception: System.Exception: Configuration plug-in not found. Please, install it
at MonkeyMSN.Base.MonkeyMessenger..ctor () [0x00000]

Xavier said...

@ Jaiem Rave
My Gtk-sharp 2.10 is installed, that it's the problem

Just look better in my previous post.
i pasted you the path where my gtk-sharp2 were installed.

César said...

You also need the development packages for gtk-sharp

Xavier said...

@ cesar
Also installed ;-)

i will have a look in the generated alcolac.m4 for this error

Xavier said...

@ Cesar
Also installed

I'll have a look in the generated aclocal.m4 for this error. ;-)

Pedro said...

when i click "preferences" nothing happens :(

saracen said...

I also get this error:

How can this be fixed?
