    The voice and video support are experimental. I would ask questions specifically on #pidgin IRC. If however you find an answer I would be very interested in your solution. I am not involved in pidgin development. Do you have a link to another page that provides tenative instructions? I would be happy to try myself.

    I used the following descriptions:
    GSoC2008
    Monotone for Pidgin
    Install Pidgin from Source

    If you gou through my earlier post, you can save a lot of time by installing the dev packages I listed there.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Voice and video seems to refer to developmental source code. If you could tell me where to obtain this source code I would be greatful.

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

    Ok this Ive successfully compiled the source. Here is how I did it: (Thanks for the instructions by the way -- very helpful. I using 8.10 on my system)

    Did the following commands:
    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
    I actually temporarily added the jaunty universe repository to my /etc/apt/sources.list and removed intrepid's. I did a
    sudo aptitude update

    Then ran the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgstfarsight0.10-0 libgstfarsight0.10-dev gstreamer0.10-plugins-farsight
    I then removed the jaunty repository, and added back in Intrepid's, and re-ran the update command.


    The following instructions also worked, however I didn't install monotome-viz

    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 the configure process I did not get any errors about missing any dependencies. Possibly this is because I had compiled pidgin before and had the library install. I would suggest the following:

    sudo apt-get build dep pidgin

    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

    I didn't need to do the following -- Again I think because I had the correct libraries installed. A quick perusal of the config.log located in the top pidgin directory should tell you why you needed to do this:
    Code:
    sudo sh ./autogen.sh --disable-dbus --disable-tk

    I also got the following warnings listed below! I have no idea how to rectify, however they were just warnings!!

    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/.

    I didn't get the following when using the make command:
    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[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tom/code/pidgin-mtn'
    make: *** [all] Error 2

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

    sudo apt-get build dep pidgin
    Thanx for your feedback, using this I could also run the configure script without disable d-bus and tk support. However, at the end I receive
    Code:
    Build with voice and video.... no
    which should be yes...

    Update: I downloaded farsight2 and compiled it from source, so now I have the configure script with voice and video ... yes!

    Update2: make and make install was successful, but when I try to run pidgin I got an error message:
    "pidgin: symbol lookup error: pidgin: undefined symbol: purple_media_manager_get"

    Update3: I upgraded all gstreamer- packages from the jaunty repo (thanx for the hint kevdog!) and recompiled. SUCCEED! Now I have Pidgin working with webcam (using Linux4Video2), need to test audio.

    I followed your instructions for compiling the Pidgin Facebook chat from source (in addition to trying it from repositories and via the .deb file) to no avail. When I go to "Manage Accounts" the dropbox simply does not have Facebook Chat as an option for creating an account. I had this working a few weeks ago for the space of a few hours before Pidgin crashed and Facebook Chat refused to work again. I've since reinstalled facebook chat numerous times (including by your method above) to no avail.

    I gave up trying pidgin vv from source, I compiled it twice and both times the system collapsed after a while, and I couldn't recover (in recovery mode I uninstalled pidgin but the gdm not started at all).
    So I reinstalled Ubuntu 8.10 and stay on Pidgin delivered with the distro

    Im not sure what you mean collapsed, but I'm sorry to hear about your ordeal. My vv version is running ok, but I can't test with gchat
