    I'm not sure if you installed them like I told you. You should have

    /usr/local/lib/pidgin/talkfilters.la
    /usr/local/lib/pidgin/talkfilters.so

    Something tells me they were not compiled and installed with the rest of the plugins.

    I like pidgin's style, but I'm waiting it to get a Plus! like plugin.
    Any news about it, or its dead?
    The fact is that most of my contacts have those strange coloured nicks that look ugly without the plugin :S

    Can you inform me about the plugin you are referring to specifically and I'll investigate it?

    Re: How to Compile Pidgin with Plugins from Source in Intrepid Ibex

    Anyone get this to compile on 64bit?

    I keep getting this:

    Code:
    checking for X11... yes
    checking for XScreenSaverRegister in -lXext... no
    checking for XScreenSaverRegister in -lXss... no
    configure: error:
    XScreenSaver extension development headers not found.
    Use --disable-screensaver if you do not need XScreenSaver extension support,
    this is required for detecting idle time by mouse and keyboard usage.

    It's funny to think how underdeveloped the world is, really makes it easier for a developer to get ahead.

    Try this:

    Re: How to Compile Pidgin with Plugins from Source in Intrepid Ibex

    Thanks kevdog

    After that was fixed got this:
    Code:
    checking for STARTUP_NOTIFICATION... no
    no
    configure: error:
    Startup notification development headers not found.
    Use --disable-startup-notification if you do not need it.
    Fixed with libstartup-notification0-dev

    Then got this:
    Code:
    checking for MEANWHILE... no
    configure: error:
    Meanwhile development headers not found.
    Use --disable-meanwhile if you do not need meanwhile (Sametime) support.
    edit: fixed with libmeanwhile-dev

    Now stuck on:
    Code:
    checking for MEANWHILE... yes
    checking for AVAHI... no
    checking avahi-client/client.h usability... no
    checking avahi-client/client.h presence... no
    checking for avahi-client/client.h... no
    checking avahi-glib/glib-malloc.h usability... no
    checking avahi-glib/glib-malloc.h presence... no
    checking for avahi-glib/glib-malloc.h... no
    checking for avahi_client_new in -lavahi-client... no
    configure: error:
    avahi development headers not found.
    Use --disable-avahi if you do not need avahi (Bonjour) support.
    fixed with libavahi-client-dev and libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev

    Re: How to Compile Pidgin with Plugins from Source in Intrepid Ibex

    Just a few questions and I can add info to the original post

    I know you are installing on 64 bit Ubuntu

    Did you do the following:
    sudo apt-get build-dep pidgin

    If you did, are you telling me you had to install additional libraries as listed above to compile on the 64 bit platform?

    After installation using checkinstall... The update daemon instantly turns on to notify a "new" version of pidgin is available, which is "1:2.4.1-ubuntu2.2". I think this is something about the version number.

    I suggest to run this command instead:
    sudo checkinstall -D --fstrans=no --install=yes --pkgname=pidgin --pkgversion=1:2.5.4~checkinstall
    Also, Bot Sentry cannot autogen itself. Here is the error encountered:
    $ ./autogen.sh
    configure.ac:47: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DISABLE_STATIC
    If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
    See the Autoconf documentation.
    configure.ac:48: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_LIBTOOL_WIN32_DLL
    configure.ac:49: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
    autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1
    I wonder what are they...

    Re: How to Compile Pidgin with Plugins from Source in Intrepid Ibex

    I would recommend installing outside the apt system with a simple sudo make install rather than a checkinstall. checkinstall although it has theoretical advantages, is really a pain to work with on a practical basis. If you are persistent however in using the apt system, I believe you can put updates on hold like sudo aptitude hold pidgin.

    As far as the bot sentry ./autogen.sh problem -- let me take a look at it. I have bot sentry installed, however have not looked at the package in quite a while and don't know if a recent upgrade broke something.

    Re: How to Compile Pidgin with Plugins from Source in Intrepid Ibex

    I read about an oppurtunity to compile pidgin from source with video and voice support, so I wanted to try. This is how I proceed:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential dh-make
    sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev
    Installed packages from http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian (added to the sources)

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgstfarsight0.10-0 libgstfarsight0.10-dev gstreamer0.10-plugins-farsight
    in order to fetch the last revision of pidgin:

    Code:
    apt-get install monotone monotone-viz
    then:

    Code:
    DATABASE=/home/user/monotone_databases/pidgin.mtn
    WORKINGDIR=/home/user/code/pidgin-mtn
    cd $(dirname $DATABASE)
    wget http://developer.pidgin.im/static/pidgin.mtn.bz2
    bzip2 -d pidgin.mtn.bz2
    mtn -d $DATABASE pull --set-default mtn.pidgin.im "im.pidgin.*"
    I got an error message so:

    Code:
    mtn -d $DATABASE db migrate
    then again:

    Code:
    mtn -d $DATABASE pull --set-default mtn.pidgin.im "im.pidgin.*"
    mtn -d $DATABASE co -b im.pidgin.pidgin.vv $WORKINGDIR
    During configure with autogen I got messages about several missing dependencies, to install them:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install autogen libtool intltool libgtk2.0-dev  libgtkspell-dev libstartup-notification0-dev libmeanwhile-dev libavahi-glib-dev libdbus-1-dev libperl-dev libssl-dev libgnutls-dev tcl8.5-dev libdbus-1-dev tk8.5-dev libxss-dev
    What I couldn't frind: d-bus and tk development headers so I disabled:

    Code:
    sudo sh ./autogen.sh --disable-dbus --disable-tk

    Warning during configuring:
    Code:
    Please add the files
      codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
      progtest.m4
    from the /aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
    or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
    You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from
    ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/config/.

    Error when "sudo make":
    Code:
    gtkmain.c:314: error: implicit declaration of function ‘pidgin_medias_init’
    make[3]: *** [gtkmain.o] Error 1
    make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/tom/code/pidgin-mtn/pidgin'
    make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/tom/code/pidgin-mtn/pidgin'
    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tom/code/pidgin-mtn'
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    Any suggestion to avoid this?
