    I listen to radio streams a lot as well. On mine, when i type %rb in the away line (or available line, both work for me), and then start the stream in Rhythmbox, it just says what the title of the radio station is under my name in the buddy list.

    Thats cool and all, but if a radio stream provides artist/song names to Rhythmbox, can they be seen on pidgin too somehow? i currently have 2 streams, one provides artist/song info to Rhythmbox, but the other doesnt.

    Same here. Pidgin shows just %rb. Plugin is active, compiled without errors. Restarted both rhythmbox and pidgin - still nothing. I am using pidgin 2.5.2 and rhythmbox 0.11.6.

    For people currently looking for this I strongly recommend installing pidgin-musictracker via apt-get instead of messing with the Pidigin-Rhythmbox plugin.

    Pidgin-musictracker is a newer plugin and supports a wide variety of music players not just Rhythmbox. In addition the configuration options are much nicer.

    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you

    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 what showed in the terminal. What should I do next?

    Re: [HOW-TO] Pidgin-Rhythmbox 2.0 plug-in

    Do you need the pidgin sources to compile this?

    There are a plugin to display current track played in rhythmbox. It's called pidgin-musictracker which is in ubuntu repositories. just
    Code:
    apt-get install pidgin-musictracker
    and tick to enable the plugin. it's easier and no need to compile.

    I tried but can't. Here's the result:

    kelvin@ubuntu:~$ apt-get install pidgin-musictracker
    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13 Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

    I login as root and tried again but the same message appeared.

    I second this! It's simple as hell, and has a nice GUI to edit your statuses with.

    Don't bother with all that other crap
