Adium ‘Paraphernalia’ message style

A simple theme with clean code and easy customization.

The theme has been released at Adium Xtras; note that the images provided here are different in order to avoid any copyright issues.

How do I install it?

If you have Adium installed, simply double-click the paraphernalia.AdiumMessageStyle file. If you don’t have Adium, this won’t be much use.

I don’t like the included backgrounds

It’s easy to put in your own:

  1. Right click → Show package contents for the .AdiumMessageStyle file (if you’ve installed the theme, it’ll be at ~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Message Styles/)
  2. Put your image in the images folder (Contents/Resources)
  3. Go to the ‘Variants’ folder (Contents/Resources)
  4. Make a copy of one of the CSS files (edit the name to describe your new image)
  5. Edit the image name in the CSS file—be sure to leave in the ../images/ part
  6. Restart Adium
