Does anybody know where pidgin puts its files and what they're called? Like .conf files and stuff?

Thanks,
Jordy

I think configuration files are stored in /home/.gaim

When pidgin was called gaim they were stored in ~/.gaim but I'm not sure if it honors that location anymore. It's a bit confusing but, you'll need to look in ~/.purple. libpurple is the backend library for pidgin.

Wow, I imagined that they would encrypt the passwords, but after seeing the file, I guess not.

Well, thanks guys, this helps a lot.
