I've been trying since yesterday to get the new pidgin to work with the new OTR (off the record) plugin. I downloaded and installed the new pidgin from getdb. No problems everything works fine. However, if I install the new OTR 3.2.0 plugin deb that I downloaded from the interpid repo, pidgin starts up in the bottom panel and then closes. If run pidgin from the terminal I get the following:
Once I remove the OTR plugin, pidgin works fine again. Just a little side note, I also installed the latest libotr, libotr-dev, and libotrbin (3.2.0-1 I believe) from the interpid repos. I then tried to download and complie the plugin from source, no luck here either. This what I get when I run ./configure
pidgin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/pidgin/pidgin-otr.so: undefined symbol: g_dgettext
I'm guessing I just need to point it in the right direction; however, I need to be pointed in the right direction in order to do that.
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for EXTRA... configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.6 gtk+-2.0 >= 2.6 pidgin >= 2.0 purple >= 2.0) were not met:
No package 'pidgin' found
No package 'purple' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables EXTRA_CFLAGS
and EXTRA_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
