Empathy is a messaging program which supports text, voice, and video chat and file transfers over many different protocols. You can tell it about your accounts on all those services and do all your chatting within one application.
Themes listed down there working for Empathy and Adium, Empathy supports Adium Message Styles starting from 2.27.3 (if built with WebKitGtk support).
How to install Empathy Themes:
This on ubuntu 10.04 LTS
paste the theme folder to this directory “/usr/share/adium/message-styles”
Renkoo and Renkoo Naked have custom background support!!!! Dreams do come true!!
This message style is the realisation of design ideas I’ve had in my head over the past few months. It builds on the basic stripped-down code of a previous, unreleased theme.
This is the first version released and I have set it at v.8 because there are still a number of things I have not touched as of yet. You will probably get unexpected results with.
Added 2 new variants to GoneDark: Crimson & Steel.
Added new style called GoneDark Polarized, the albino brother of GoneDark.
GoneDark Polarized contains 5 themes: Arctic, Cosmos, Firelight, Margarita & Standard.
Added Service name to message window.
Fixed issue with long strings not wrapping to the next line.
Fixed the ability to change the background. Changing fonts still an issue.
Graphics by Imrik, updated and reworked by myself.
Transparency abound, Eclipse can stand in front of anything. It’s fun, subtle, beautiful, utterly kick-ass, and any other adjective you want it to be.
Now with more variants and cleaner code.
Candybars is a simple message view style without buddy icons and other unnecessary distractions. It comes in 25 different color variations.
Adium Matte is the Adium version of iChat Matte. It simulates iChat’s bubbles but instead of the default aqua appearance, it uses a matte appearance that is more subtle and appealing.
Because of the limitations of Adium Message Styles and my own time, I was only able to make incoming variants. Your message color will always be aqua. Feel free to change this to anything you want with the main.css stylesheet in the xtra. It will accept any color and mask it accordingly.
A really cool collection of 30 backgrounds comes with the new release of ubuntu 10.04 LTS .
Dark background I liked the most, awesome collection of dark wallpaper. also comes with many bright wallpaper.
