The program or your entire machine? Also, what Pidgin modules are you using, if any? A goog way to debug is to run pidgin from the console, so you get a list of any errors.

What version of Ubuntu are you running? And are you running the version of Pidgin available in the repos or did you install it from a .deb file or compile it from source?

I have the same issue, with Pidgin seemingly shutting down randomnly, although it might be when a certain string of characters is being sent (as I can't view them, since the program closes).

I am running 8.04 64 and Pidgin 2.4.1

I can't recall if it was from a .deb or the repos, as my main complaint with Ubuntu has always been how far out of date the repos are (see: Deluge, Wine).

edit: I just realized this is in the Dell Support section of the forums. My issue is in no way Dell related, although Pidgin has similar problems on my machine)
