    Re: pidgin updates

    I think the it has something to do woth those bars without newlines. Try removing the bars:
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 67265eb522bdd6b1c69e66ed7fb8bee0a1f196a8
    echo deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pidgin-developers/ppa/ubuntu `lsb_release --short --codename` main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pidgin-ppa.list
    Can you post the whole message you got?

    Alternatively you can download the packages from getdeb: http://www.getdeb.net/app/Pidgin
