If you migrated from Yahoo Messenger! to Pidgin you probably found out that some handy keyboard shortcuts are missing and no alternatives are defined by default.
For example, I used to Ctrl+h to hide/show my off-line buddies, but I didn't have a shortcut for that in Pidgin. I did not find a working solution on the interwebs. Also tried a bunch of plugins, but they didn't cover the off-line buddies part.
So I decided to poke around in the Pidgin configuration folder
.purple and I found a file called
accels. I took a leap o faith, uncommented and edited this part:
(gtk\_accel\_path "\<PurpleMain\>/Buddies/Show/Offline Buddies" "\<Control\>h")
Restarted Pidgin and it worked. There's a bunch of unused actions in that file so feel free to experiment. :)
