    Re: MXit

    Hi Guys,

    Im running Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS x64.

    Struggling to get MXit pidgin plugin to work.

    Any ideas on how I can get the 32bit plugin to work on X64 version?

    Hi

    You need to compile the plugin your self. You will need the libpurple-dev package as well as build-essential. There should be a readme in the zip.

    http://devzone.mxit.com/libPurple/downloads/

    They don't seem to have the source code listed there any more not sure if you have to login to view it first.... If it isn't there I suggest emailing them or asking on their forum why they stopped allowing access to download the code.

    There are many forums on mxit that have external links of the code. Try searching or request any of the users for it there.
    Behold! The internet...
    My god, it's full of ads.

    Sorry for the necro post.

    I have managed to compile the mxit plugin from source. Both for 64bit Jaunty and 32bit Karmic.

    If you need some help just ask

    Hi All,
    I suppose that this is probably a bit late for this thread, but certainly now, the plugin build into pidgin works perfectly...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pidgin
    and then mxit accounts just work.
