What do you advice me? Adiumx or Messenger?
I am a new one in a mac world!!!
MSN Messenger seems to have a fondness for spinning a bit out of control, pounding on the processor and chewing up RAM when it does take a drive off-road.
I'd recommend Adium.
adium is amazing! fully customizable! growl notifications too. i have mine set up with a cool style. it also auto-hides when i'm not using. no matter what i'm doing on my mac i can put my cursor to the left edge of the screen and my contact list pops out
Is it possible to talk with my msn contacts with Adiumx? Or it is necessary to have adiumx contacts?
Yes. It's like Trillian, it has a bunch of messaging services you can all use at once.
I will use it.
How can I uninstall an application (msn) from Mac? It's my first time!
Drag the MSN icon from you Applications folder to the trash. It's that simple.
welcome to the wonderful world of mac! if you have any questions feel free to ask around or send me a pm!
that may be fine for MSN, but some applications leave files in other places and depending on what the program is, you may want all those files gone too.
A program called "App Zapper" can be purchased and will remove all application files.
Onyx is a good application to install? What really does it do?
A free alternative to this would be AppTrap
I don't think that's something you need to worry about quite yet... Maybe look back at it once you're more familiar with the OSX.
I am falling in love with my Mac
How can I change the language of keyboard?
I don't use a chat program that much but I am very happy with Adium. I also like that Growl program that installed with it I guess they are not really related but I probably would not have run into Growl if it didn't get installed with Adium.
System Preferences -> International -> Input Menu
Is it worth to buy ($12.95) appzapper?
Thank you for informations!!!
Just get a free alternative. Like AppCleaner - http://www.freemacsoft.net/AppCleaner/
Another vote for adium
AdiumX wins hands down over Messenger.
I've just installed adium!
But how do I clean up all those left behind bits of files after I have already moved them to trash? It doesn't seem AppCleaner will do that...
I'd suggest using AppTrap. Just drag an app to the trash as you normally would and it will ask you if you want to move the preference/other associated files to the trash with it.
Sorry, but what I was asking is what about the applications I used and deleted prior to loading the the AppCleaner on my Mac. I want to get rid of those associated files...Help?
Hmm... besides downloading the app again for the sole purpose of deleting it (assuming you remember all of the apps you're deleted and have a lot of spare time on your hands), I don't know of anything that will do what you want.
I have a special little place in my Mac soul for Adium. I've been using the program since it was on Mac OS 9 and I have never strayed away from it. I only user iChat for quick video chatting or screen sharing.
Comparing to Messnager is even worse. Look no further than Adium. Remember, if you use Adium you have to promise us you'll deck it out with all the extras on their website. No one likes a plain jane Adium setup.
