Displaying a pop-up with the name of contact that signs in

Post by underfart »

How can I do this? I'm using Adium 0.84, and just using it for MSN Messenger. In the offical MSN program it was nice to see a message pop-up displaying the name of each contact that signs into MSN, but with Adium it doesn't do that. Sorry if this is a really dumb question, but I'd appreciate help. Thanks!

I'm using Mac OSX 10.3.9

I downloaded Growl and I set the prefrences in Adium to display a sticky notice in Growl, but still not message pops up when a contact signs in. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks

Did you add Adium to the Growl applications menu?

How do I do that? There's no option, and dragging it in from the applications menu doesn't work >_>

Go to your system prefs, click on Growl, click Applications tab, and make sure Adium is in that list.
