Where is the problem and what can I do?
Just for everyone's information, I too had the problem of %rb not changing to the song name and info, but when I asked a friend, he said that he could see it in ym status even though I couldn't (yes I had the checkboxes checked to show the info in my status bar)
It's still a problem, but not as much of one.
Yes, you are right. It works but you can't see your status changed. To check try to add yourself to your contact list.
Nevermind, great tutorial! :D
I would like to see the title of the radio stream I'm listening to.
What do I have to change in the line: '%tile' by %artist ?
Or isn't this possible?
I get the following error:
I'm using the pidgin that comes with 8.10.Code:
checking for pidgin... configure: error: Package requirements (pidgin >= 2.0.0) were not met:
No package 'pidgin' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables pidgin_CFLAGS
and pidgin_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
This is more about Rhythmbox than about the pidgin plugin, but in my status I get '[song name](http://jon.oberheide.org/projects/pi...%ABOUT%MY%SONG' by Artist
I disabled the Lyrics plugin in Rhythmbox already. Should I rebuild the plugin because this was one of the settings? :confused:
Thanks for the help.
Just figured out what the "problem" was. It's a link that's created in the AIM Profile, but it doesn't hide the URL when looking in the buddy list.
