Adium and Quicksilver

January 20th, 2008 · 5 Comments

I searched around yesterday for a plugin or script to use Quicksilver to set my Adium status, and while there were numerous results, all were outdated and did not work with newer versions of both pieces of software. So I decided to edit some of the ones I had found online. The original code that I was working off of came from here

As you can read in the directions on that page, first you must open ScriptEditor and copy in the following code:

using terms from application "Quicksilver"
	on process text ThisClipping
		tell application "Adium"
			set the status type of the first account to away
			set the status message of the first account to ThisClipping
		end tell
	end process text
end using terms from

This code will set your away message and the following code will set you back to available.

tell application "Adium" to go available

With each script as an individual file, save the file to ~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver/Actions/

After each script is saved, restart Quicksilver and enter in the name of the script (whatever you saved it as) and press enter.

    A softly watch Once decayed, the 358 is paradoxically a soft watch : the 47 mm of central chord enables a large dispensing from the 170 grams of heaviness (that is according to reason regarding how big the chronometer, because of the titanium).
