Are you sure you mean the Tray Icon and not the Taskbar entry?

Which OS is this on?

status icon, not taskbar entry.

linux, archlinux.

Is "blink on incoming messages" ticked when you right click the tray icon? It's above "mute sounds".

I can confirm. This bug was in ICQ x-status branch and still in pidgin 2.7

My OS is gentoo linux

  • Milestone set to 2.7.1

This is a regression in the gtkstatusicon code. Ubuntu is carrying charkins's patch for this (along with the backported gtkstatusicon code itself) in their 2.6.6 version in 10.04. It's a five-line patch that doesn't break ABI, so I think we should apply it.

+
+	if(purple_prefs_get_bool(PIDGIN_PREFS_ROOT "/docklet/blink")) {
+		gtk_status_icon_set_blinking(docklet, (pending && !connecting));
+	} else if(gtk_status_icon_get_blinking(docklet)) {
+		gtk_status_icon_set_blinking(docklet, FALSE);
+	}

To the end of gtkdocklet-gtk.c:docklet_gtk_status_update_icon() (see http://developer.pidgin.im/attachment/ticket/2629/pidgin-gtkstatusicon-blink.diff)

In my case it's the Taskbar that's not flashing. I'm using Pidgin 2.7.0 on Windows 7 32 bit.

The tray icon no longer blinks by default for some reason, so I set it to blink. That's only for the tray icon however - as nanotalk says, the taskbar entry still doesn't flash for new messages. It does for file transfer requests though.

Sorry, I forgot to mention I'm on Windows 7 x86 too.
