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/
