You might be missing something then. Okay, so you checked the plugin in the preferences right? Gaim loads okay...What desktop environment are you using? Maybe your DE is not supported ...

    crash, if you're having this many problems with gentoo, maybe you should go back to a binary distro such as Debian or Slackware? There are about 6 threads with your name on it.

    I agree. Gentoo is not that difficult if you know what to do (and read the manual and lots of tutorials), but it's not a distro to start your Linux journey with. Having problems with Gentoo and seeking help doesn't get you any prestige at all.

    You use gentoo for prestige? That seems quite odd to me...Crash, stick with gentoo, its well worth it, getting everything setup can be problematic your fist time or two but its well worth it, don't listen to naysayers, but do make sure that gentoo is worth it to you.

    I don't use Gentoo . You have to agree with me lots of newbies are tempted by Gentoo because it can make them more l33t. They are like 'hell, Mandriva goes well, it's getting too easy, so I must be ready for Gentoo'.

    Guys: keep it friendly, will you?

    Crashandburn0420: some googling will help you further, especially if it's about simple stuff. Don't expect people to be very inclined to help you when you are using very basic questions.

    I agree with genesus, I don't think any distro is too hard if you are willing to put some time into it. There's nothing wrong with being adventurous I'd also recommend you check the gentoo website and wiki, both have an awsome amount of information.

    As for the original problem concerning Gaim, maybe try updating it to the newest version? It works fine for me (I use fluxbox). Have you done what has been suggested? I mean opening up a terminal, running Gaim and then playing around with the taskbar icon?

    yes i have, and it doesnt do anything in the terminal, i think that there is just something wrong with the system tray. is there any progams i might need to install for the system tray?
