Installation

XChat Data Directories

Replace <username> with your actual username.

  • Windows Vista/7:
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\X-Chat 2\
  • Windows XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\X-Chat 2\
  • Linux:
    ~/.xchat2/

pevents.conf

The Solarized theme for XChat was designed using the default pevents.conf file.

The only reason you may need to replace your existing pevents.conf file is if it is heavily modified.

The pevents.conf included with the theme has 2 modifications:

  1. Nick names are wrapped with angle brackets.

  2. Mode characters ( ~, &, @, %, +) are shown next to nick names.

Install the Solarized theme

  1. Exit XChat
  2. Back-up the current colors.conf and pevents.conf files located in the appropriate XChat Data Directory
  3. Copy the solarized-dark-colors.conf or solarized-light-colors.conf file to the appropriate XChat Data Directory and rename it to colors.conf
  4. (Optional) Copy the pevents.conf file to the appropriate XChat Data Directory
  5. Restart XChat
