Trash the preferences of the program found in Library > Preferences
or better yet, search all 'JBuddy" files and just trash all of those

The preferences are currently stored inside ~/.zionsoftware/jsuperchat/jsuperchat.prefs

You can either delete the whole file and restart which will also blow away your locally saved account information - or try to edit the file with a plain text editor and remove the LnfOptions section or replace with the information below to restore to default of using Aqua:

LnfOptions {
antialiased true
className apple.laf.AquaLookAndFeel
decorateFrames true
}

JBuddy Messenger 2.0 saves preferences in the ~/Library/Preferences folder and requires the PropertyList application to manually fix problems that can't be fixed with the app's preferences (if there are any)

Takes forever to start up, horrible interface. Just like all other Java applications. At least it didn't crash. Only masochistic people would like this application.

Nice, simple program that does what it's supposed to. No fancy extras, but then again, it's the only multi-IM client that has worked properly for me.

Awesome!! The problem with most IM clients is that they try to do too much. JBuddy handles the 4 major chat protocols ad does it well. And since it's a Java-based application it should be able to work on any platform. As far as I'm concerned it's the best multi-chat app out there.
