    Pidgin Plugins

    I'm just wondering what pidgin plugins everybody here uses, theres a lot of pidgin plugins out there but not a central list of them.

    Here are the plugins I use:

    Buddy State Notification - Shows a buddies signons, signoffs, away, idle, etc in the conversation window

    I'dle Mak'er - sometimes handy, makes you look idle when you are not

    Message Notification - makes new messages more noticeable

    Off-The-Record Messaging - Encryption

    Pidgin-Thinklight - Makes thinkpad "thinklight" blink when you get a new message, it also works with other laptops

    Psychic Mode - when a buddy is about to IM you, and is typing the message, it will notify you that they are typing the message and open a new window, before they even send the message.

    There is also a facebook plugin so you can use the facebook chat with pidgin http://code.google.com/p/pidgin-facebookchat/

    pidgin encryption - http://gaim-encryption.sourceforge.net
    Pidgin extended preferences - http://gaim-extprefs.sourceforge.net/
    Purple Plugin Pack (51 various Plugins): http://plugins.guifications.org/trac/wiki/PluginPack
    Bot Sentry - Prevents IM SPAM - http://sourceforge.net/projects/pidgin-bs/
    Pidgin RhythmBox Plugin - http://jon.oberheide.org/projects/pidgin-rhythmbox/ http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=622264

    pidgin encryption sometimes conflicts with OTR

    and OTR is better anyway cause it works with many other IM clients
