Gaim: get back Ctrl + Enter to send message

Some time ago I think it was when I made the switch from Gaim 1.x to 2.x sending my instant messages with Ctrl + Enter stopped working. I have lived with it for along time but it kept annoying me… a good friend of mine found the solution on another website and today I took the time to actually do it.

The thing beneath is kinda ripoff / copy-paste :D

Create the file .gtkrc-2.0 in your home directory with the following content:

gtk-key-theme-name = "Emacs"
gtk-can-change-accels = 1
binding "gaim" {
    bind "Return" { "message_send" () }
    bind "Return" { "insert-at-cursor" ("\n") }
widget "*gaim_gtkconv_entry" binding "gaim"
