    this is the version http://plugins.guifications.org/trac/downloads/22
    it is the same as in the first post.

    If you write exactly how you installed the switchspell plugin from the PPA, I'll add it to the original guide

    Thanks.

    i added this ppa to my sources.lst
    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/andrikos/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    and i then installed the purple-plugin-pack package
    the switchspell plugin is in that package

    your pidgin package will be updated too..
    also to use the switchspell you need to install aspell for your language
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install aspell-el
    gives me greek spelling

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

    I have followed the directions and the comments back and forth but am still having trouble getting the Farsight2 multicast plugin to work with Pidgin. My problem is that the Plugin does not show up in Pidgin's list of plugins even though everything seemed to build correctly.

    I have compiled Pidgin 2.6.0vv from source as well as the Farsight2 package and gst-plugin-farsight. The following three files were built successfully into /usr/local/lib/farsight2-0.0: libmulticast-transmitter.a, -.la, -.so. I have tried moving these to /usr/local/lib/pidgin as a farshot with no success.

    I installed the libpurple plugins and those do show up so I am trying to figure out what I am missing to get the multicast transmitter working. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Kev.

    Farsight2 is a video communications framework that supposedly can plugin to Pidgin. I am not interested in the A/V comm however, I am trying to use the multicast UDP transmitter plugin they have bundled with it. "Farsight2 has rawudp, iceudp, and multicast transmitter plugins" for Pidgin (2nd link below).

    The following site has a description of the entire Farsight project and just a snippet about the Multicast transmitter:
    http://farsight.freedesktop.org/wiki/

    I have compiled Pidgin and when I configured it, I did get the "Build with Voice and Video... Yes" described here:
    http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/vv

    However, I do not have any of the Farsight2 plugins showing up in the list in Pidgin. Is there a way to link Plugins to Pidgin or should they just have to be compiled and placed in the /usr/local/lib/pidgin or ../farsight directory.

    If there is another simpler implementation of a multicast UDP transmitter plugin anyone knows of, I'd love to know about it.

    I guess you are farther than me on this one. I compiled the Pidgin vv experimental version successfully, however was never able to get either Farsight 1 or 2 compiled and installed sucessfully. In fact I failed on the Yahoo, and MSN options. I would try the IRC Pidgin channel. The developers hang out there and if you mention something about vv they are more than likely to chime in and answer your questions. I received a lot of help there when I had questions.
