Facebook username too long in Pidgin

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – Currently when chatting in pidgin my name that is displayed whenever I send a chat is too long and makes reading the chat difficult and sometimes confusing. Is there a way to make the display name for all of the different protocols be something shorter like a nickname or something? An example my facebook reads like this (01:14:16 PM) [email protected]/df747fe6_4BBB0493F66AE: and I want it to look like this (01:14:16 PM) username: (HowTos)
