remove protocol icon overlay from buddy icons

Reported by: nwalp Owned by: seanegan
Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.0 Keywords:


I have yet to see a combination of buddy icon and prpl icon that is both recognizable and non-ugly. The Jabber one blends in so much that its useless, and the AOL one just looks out of place on top of most buddy icons I've seen.

It might look better over the status icon.

Using the small list, I miss the prpl icons. I've a fair few contacts set up, and there are definitely times when knowing the top buddy provided information.

Agreed. The original idea was: for icons > 50x50 px, overlay the protocol icon for icons <-= 50x50px, show the protocol icon beneath the buddy icon for no buddy icon, show a protocol icon as a buddy icon.

I only got around to implementing the first rule and quickly found it to suck.
