Using 2.6.5 and it's working great (puppy 4.3.1). But how do I get a desktop icon?


Go to /usr/share/applications/pidgin.desktop drag that file to your desktop and rename the file on you desktop if you want.

I don' t have that....
I have /usr/local/apps/ but no pidgin.desktop there. I did a pfind and it says No files found!


If you have a menu entry and have it installed then it is located /usr/share/applications/ look for your pidgin.desktop file in there.

Of course you do have a *.desktop file in /usr/share/applications/
If you hadn't there would be no menu entry.

shariabeth: Menu is generated from desktop files, if something is in menu there's also *.desktop file in /usr/share/applications/
You can drag any of those to desktop then right click on desktop icon -> Edit item or Set icon
Some places for icons:
/usr/share/icons
/usr/share/pixmaps
/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps <-- this is where all default desktop icons and icon themes are

I have no idea why, but this version of Pidgin is not connecting SSL, so XMPP and Yahoo are not working (not connecting).

Hello, i've installed your pet for the 2.6.5
and i've managed to transfer the accounts.xml from an ubuntu installation without problems.

Just the online-status icons are way to big and i don't know why.

Any ideas?

Hello dear wolfpup your OTR plugin works in a version compiled from other guy, 2.5.8 but not in your last versions. if i install his version first and then yours then the OTR plugin works, there is something missing for it but i dont know what exactly. you have experience with this becouse the OTR plugin is yours too Smile can you please compile the next versions that OR plugin works too ? this is a great crypted chat thing that works over all communications that are supported in pidgin.
and for working webcam video stream it needed farsight, compiled with --enable-vv

Actually, the primary fix for that error is the one listed on Pidgin's homepage (www.pidgin.im): "Having trouble with AIM/ICQ? Uncheck 'Use clientLogin' on the advanced tab of the account settings. "

Then, if that alone doesn't work, try the option to disable SSL.
