Additional Comments

Don't have to add any DLLs or anything, seems to only work with ALSA audio selected (might be my awful laptop though), has some problems if "Allow the window manager to control the windows" is not ticked. Works best when NOT in a virtual Desktop, unless you like it confined :D Note that it IS glitchy, when the main window is minimised it goes to a square in the bottom left of the screen (if Managed is on, you can drag that to another desktop and it's all nice). Occasionally on resizing/maximising, windows will be compacted to a TINY square, if this happens, right click the window's taskbar button, resize, resize to a decent size. ALL names/group chat names in the main window are... messed up. Best way to deal with that is look at the tooltips. Changing skin DOES NOT work, it will crash. If you need to change skin (and I reccomend using the Standard skin, it seems to screw up less), open Xfire's folder, open Xfire.ini and replace "SkinName=Xfire" with "SkinName=WHATEVER", replacing WHATEVER with the skin's name, Standard for example.
