Looks like your everyday lined notebook paper. You might have to tweak your width settings etc to get it to look right. Enjoy!

Note that you'll need to Download (not Install) the Xtra to see and install the fonts and background. Double click the .ListLayout and .ListTheme files to install them.

That's quite cool! :)

# by Dylan1077 on 05/25/06 at 21:39:19

Very creative, excellent work.

# by darmot7 on 05/25/06 at 22:14:06

yeah this is awesome

# by gaszefid on 05/26/06 at 05:07:34

wow, thanks so much! I had no idea this would get such a positive repsonse.

# by anouke on 05/26/06 at 05:59:02

hahaha that's very cool!

# by gottacoppafeel on 05/26/06 at 10:30:14

love it!

# by blake on 05/26/06 at 11:15:54

Sorry for the stupid question, but where is notebook.png supposed to be placed?

# by yashrg on 04/14/07 at 03:59:08

put it anywhere on ur hdd as u like. but go to the pref and select that file as the background like shown in the picture.

# by dcentity2000 on 05/26/06 at 11:46:18

Now that is original. Very cool

# by gaszefid on 05/26/06 at 13:23:24

blake- that's not stupid! I'll post a picture to help you out.

# by SamGwilym on 05/27/06 at 03:50:40

I like this a lot :) It just makes me feel SO PAPERY

# by da_baum on 05/27/06 at 20:23:42

Preview looks nice! I am currently taking a break from Adium, so I can't install it at the moment, but I'll probably give this a try once/if I get back on it. If I can remember. Love the fonts too. :)

# by @ybee on 05/28/06 at 05:45:20

Wierd, it won't put the image as a background :(
I get a black background...

# by twfarley on 05/28/06 at 07:17:07

It has to be a Regular Window or a Borderless window to work.

# by blake on 05/29/06 at 00:58:26

That was my problem then. I was using a "group bubble" window layout.

# by alexks3 on 06/01/06 at 12:27:14

Hey, I'm having the same problem, but even when I switch to Regular Window or Borderless window, I still can't see the background image. All I see is white. This seems to be a great xtra, but I can't use it.

# by alexks3 on 06/01/06 at 13:18:49

Never-mind, I figured it out, and thanks for the great contact list style

# by rebcamuse on 07/14/06 at 21:46:04

Can you tell me what you did because I haven't figured it out and I have the same problem with it.

# by alexks3 on 07/15/06 at 15:16:58

I have no problem telling you what I did. You just have to make sure the window style is boderless window or regular window. Then put the Notebook pic that you downloaded in a safe place. Customize the color theme and choose the notebook pic. That should work.

# by anewleaf on 09/01/07 at 02:47:28

change the picture format from png to jpg. adium doesn't seem to recognise png pictures for some reason.

# by imadictd2oranges on 10/08/07 at 17:07:45

okay i did everything you said to do..and its still not working
i saved the picture as a jpeg, made sure that it was a borderless window and i customized the color theme...and the notebook background still isn't showing up!!!! I don't know if you can still help or not...but I hope you can!

# by imadictd2oranges on 10/08/07 at 17:10:28

haha okay never mind!!!! i figured it out!!! haha

# by DarynAR on 05/28/06 at 12:13:25

This is positively the sexiest thing that I have ever seen in my entire life....i swear to you!

# by DarynAR on 05/28/06 at 12:22:05

but... my only stipulation is that its a massive buddy list layout for my tiny little powerbook 12 inch...but i still think it is genius, fonts and all

# by gaszefid on 05/30/06 at 16:32:13

darynar, try deselecting "show offline contacts". that should trim your list down.

# by catzforever on 05/30/06 at 17:59:48

I liked it so much I found a way to apply a similar look to the message window. Use notebook.png as a 'Background' (tiled), iChadium as the 'Message style' and Akbar 13 as the 'Text display'font. :)

# by Maverick on 05/30/06 at 21:39:56

I think the message window looks better with the Cleaner Less Sharp style, also using de notebook.png as Background (centered) and the Akbar font.

# by ispytonyv on 06/01/06 at 01:33:27

I only wish that the names lined up with the paper better... really original though!

# by iambatman on 06/02/06 at 03:29:34

really like it: 5/5... now i wish a had a similair message style to go with it

# by Dylan1077 on 06/03/06 at 13:53:02

Pushpin might be a good one.

# by iambatman on 06/07/06 at 03:23:26

oh :( but i want a notebook message style.. not fair!

# by elletheheiress on 07/30/06 at 14:51:31

yeah, I totally agree with you! It would be fantastic.

# by cazangel on 08/05/06 at 02:24:52

Or you could do what I have done: In 'Preferences: Messages' tick the box that says 'Background' and choose the 'notebook.png' file. Then just choose a Message style that goes with it. I have used Renkoo Naked, and it doesn't look too bad!

# by gaszefid on 06/07/06 at 05:00:17

I would if I knew how to make one... sorry

# by clarracuda on 06/07/06 at 05:54:50

sorry, i'm a complete noob to the mac/adium world...i'm still completely confused on how to download this. everytime i download it, and put it in my resources folder od adium, and double click .ListLayout and .ListTheme, then restart Adium, and follow the picture instructions.. i my contact list is still black. even if i change it to regular window or borderless :(.. could someone please help me? is there any way someone give me step by step instructions or something? thanks i'd greatly appreciate it! IM me at csugar246.

# by loudestnoise on 07/05/06 at 13:09:13

I really enjoy this...

# by prach on 07/13/06 at 15:22:40

how did you get those symbols on there?

# by fissure on 08/13/06 at 15:54:25

Wouldn't it be fairly easy to make the lines line up with the contacts? Also, I don't see why the provided image is so large when all you need is a single line with some space to repeat.

It's an awesome idea! Just could improve :)

# by tish on 09/09/06 at 17:23:27

this goes great with the push pin message style,

i love it!:)

# by imadhdpositive on 10/07/06 at 02:58:51

just what i needed. used it for a month. gorgeous.

# by jessevinet on 11/08/06 at 22:35:43

HELP!!! i'm having a huge problem
i installed this and it looks gorgeous but i want the font to it...and there is no section on fonts. help...what do i do? where is this gorgeous font?

# by mattgetscrunk on 12/28/06 at 18:45:22

The fonts are in the downloaded folder, and all you do is drag and drop them into the Font Book, which is the font application for mac. Font book is in the application folder, so open it up annd drag and drop.

Hope this helps.

# by mattgetscrunk on 12/23/06 at 10:32:49

doesn't work for the beta, any reason why? (all the other xtras seem to work with the beta)

i could chanage to the normal adium version, but this one is a lot better :P

# by Ruzi on 01/09/07 at 22:54:06

Hey,

I accidently clicked install before I clicked download, and now I can't seem to get it to work even though everything is set up correctly. Is there a way I can remove it and then reinstall it to try again?

# by enkuturi-akrias on 01/30/07 at 11:52:03

try in *your session*/library/application support/adium 2.0/Contact list/ and here is the file

# by enkuturi-akrias on 01/30/07 at 11:52:41

very cool contact list! remember me of the school :(

# by BlackandWhitePenguin on 02/04/07 at 23:29:05

I couldn't really get this to work, nice idea though.

# by brendino on 02/11/07 at 15:13:50

Excellent job. A message style would be nice, but it might be too matchy. Anyway, I'm not complaining.

# by tuffluffjimmy on 03/28/07 at 19:11:17

im having trouble with it because only half of my contact list shows up with the notebook background, the other have is in blackness. any help, please?

# by irishchick88 on 04/07/07 at 11:43:39

Where did you get the symbols that are in your group titles? they're great.
I love the layout!

# by irishchick88 on 04/07/07 at 12:40:25

also, i no longer have the feature that when i put my cursor over a contact, their info pop's up... any idea's why or how to get it back? its kinda a pain to have to look at their info to see away messages.
Thanks!!!!

# by dagalysx3 on 04/09/07 at 14:36:24

how come it wont work i REALLY wanna use it

# by yashrg on 04/14/07 at 04:01:42

ow do I get the font in the contact list to show up like yours?

# by yashrg on 04/14/07 at 04:02:37

oh wait, a restart did the job! cool!

# by tasmanian_devil on 05/17/07 at 21:43:48

could u make it be in the group bubbles? that's the one I use.. :?

# by gaszefid on 05/18/07 at 07:06:17

um... no. sorry

# by tasmanian_devil on 05/18/07 at 17:50:39

mkay... that's ok.

# by vancegap on 06/01/07 at 06:37:04

I love this work so much!
Great work..

# by Skye on 06/01/07 at 09:52:37

this is amazing!!! i downloaded it months ago but i couldn't figure out how to get it to work (i had it on group bubbles), but when i read the comments i figured it out and ... voila! it works! i love this style so much i'll use it forever!! (sorry i didn't mean to write a book)

# by beasy on 07/10/07 at 15:13:19

i finally got it to partly work by restarting adium but now all i have is the font on a white background and i cant figure out how to get it to look like paper. any suggestions?

# by awirstam on 07/15/07 at 19:50:25

plz help

# by candace6b on 03/28/11 at 16:53:40

Instead of double-clicking try right-clicking on it and say "Open with Adium" and it should install. Adium is the app. to open it with. I had the same problem but then this worked. Then you select the style etc. under appearance.

# by butimjessica on 08/17/07 at 11:48:11

I love it, but even with the "show offline contacts" unchecked, the list is long and blank.

# by dementia on 09/04/07 at 10:02:15

This is cool!

# by zamalicious on 12/02/07 at 15:56:33

# by candace6b on 03/28/11 at 16:55:04

They have some hand drawn icons under status icons xtras that look nice with it!

# by cherry_lucuu on 12/11/07 at 10:19:47

# by charlie on 01/15/08 at 08:52:13

It is great!! thank-you! .. One question: is it possible to have it working with "group bubbles" .. just to have smoothed corners!

# by elaboratedream on 01/24/08 at 18:29:19

I dig it! I didn't really think I would at first, but now that I'm using it I'm really fond of it. Well done!

# by aichoco on 01/25/08 at 07:40:47

That won't put the image as a background ...
I get a white background...
please help me figure out ~!

# by iamatomicboy on 02/03/08 at 16:43:42

i'm having the same problem as others above...
double clicking doesnt work for those files. i'm on 10.4

# by AdiumHipster on 03/05/08 at 01:33:36

I have the same issues as well and I use Leopard. Looks like it would be nice, but too much of a hassle.

# by bellamissboo on 04/12/08 at 17:23:48

help
i have downloaded the notebook background but can't open these two files to get the cool writing - text-Note that you'll need to Download (not Install) the Xtra to see and install the fonts and background. Double click the .ListLayout and .ListTheme files to install them.

I am on a MAC running tiger

Any suggestions on how to save these to open

thanks

much love

# by GeckoMan on 06/10/08 at 07:14:53

very nice, my only question, getting the peace, male and female symbols in there! how does one accomplish that?

# by splodgecat on 10/09/08 at 14:26:26

hi mate. these symbols as well as many others can be accessed by clicking Edit in the menubar of any app, and then Special Characters. You have access to loads of symbols including the ones shown above. I myself have the male and female symbols, as well as a plane symbol for my work colleagues (I'm an air traffic controller). Looks quality. Just make sure you click the cursor into the wherever you want to type the symbol. i.e. right click on the group and click Get Info, in order to change the name, then when you're ready to type the name, do the above. Cheers
