    By the way if someone doesn't know how to install from the source code:

    Download the source
    Extract pidgin folder
    open the terminal and go inside that folder

    then


    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install

    I managed to install it, but when I try to add my msn account it complains about needing SSL support. What do I do?

    You need to install the following packages from the repositories (or compile from the offical tcl website to get the latest version)

    openssl
    tcltls
    tk8.4
    tcl8.4

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install openssl tk8.4 tcltls tcl8.4
    Optional:

    libsnack2

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install libsnack2

    I usually try to install source things with checkinstall so they are easy to find in synaptic, will synaptic take care of those libraries for me if I do it that way or do I still need to install em separately?

    Got the same on Gutsy.....noticed this during configure

    Pidgin will be installed in /usr/local/bin.
    Warning: You have an old copy of Pidgin at /usr/bin/pidgin.

    sudo apt-get remove pidgin

    sudo make install again...

    EDIT
    Also got a little gstreamer error so maybe its better to discuss this i Gutsys forum.
