Is there a way to remove a buddy from my buddy list in Finch? If it matters, I'm using Jabber, and the buddy list looks like it is stored server side (editing blist.xml did not work).

Right-click the buddy (or press F11), then select "Remove" (r).

Thanks. Unfortunately I don't have mouse support enabled for finch, and F11 just makes my terminal full-screen. Is there some way to escape F11 and send it through? – Jeff Jun 30 '11 at 19:12
Jeff: Try Esc [ 2 3 ~ for the F11 key, or follow these instructions. – grawity Jun 30 '11 at 20:31
Escape sequence didn't seem to work for me (guessing it's terminal specific), but now my mouse is working! Thanks! – Jeff Jun 30 '11 at 20:41

It looks like Ctrl+x will also work as a right click or F11.
