Ubuntu :: How To Add A Buddy In Pidgin

Mar 18, 2010

There seems to have been a change in how you add buddies in Pidgin, since I last used Pidgin in Ubuntu. When I open the add buddy window in Pidgin I get the image attached. It allows me to "search" Personal or Ubuntu One from the drop down list, but nothing is ever populated in the main text area. Similarly, when I select a group from the drop down list in the lower right corner, it never selects it. Also when I click "New Person" it simply closes the window without ever adding a new buddy to my buddy list.

Ubuntu :: PIDGIN - Please Enter A Buddy To Pounce ?

Feb 9, 2010

I found the word "pounce" several times in PIDGIN :

"Please enter a buddy to pounce."

"Pounce Who"

As I can not find a suitable translation and most english definitions seem to awkward to the context specific (jump, batter) , my question is :

What does this mean ? What sort of action does this relate to ?

Is it " to notice" or "to give notice of"? "To warn" for example if one is online ?

Fedora :: Pidgin: Buddy Icons Disappeared

Dec 3, 2010

My icon displays at the bottom of the main pidgin window but but the icons for my contacts don't display any more. It used to display in the conversation window as well as on the themed menu button on the main window.

The disappearance happened on both Fed 13 and 14, both x86/64. I haven't checked the fed12 32 bit yet but I suspect recent updates are the culprit so I expect the Fed12 32bit to also be affected. (don't really use it much except as a "sacrificial" toy since it's due for obsoletion).

I expect a future update will fix it but I'm curious if anyone else has had this problem, and if it's a known issue, is there a current fix ?

pidgin-2.7.5-2. libpurple-2.7.5-2. I'm on 13 now i guess 14 versions are the same?

I just updated Fed12 32bit and got the saame pidgin version as 14 and 13. The icons are still present. I guess it wasn't an update problem.

Debian Multimedia :: Pidgin: Symbol Lookup Error: Pidgin: Undefined Symbol: Purple_media_element_info_get_type

Aug 1, 2010

Previously after doing aptitude upgrade, my pidgin seems broken with no gui shown. So I decided to download the latest source from pidgin website and build it from source, but I think I made situation worse because it then complained that ssl lib was needed. Then I removed the libpurple (e.g. aptitude purge libpurple0 libpurple-bin libpurple-dev) and reinstalled pidgin (aptitude install pidgin). Now it shows the error

pidgin: symbol lookup error: pidgin: undefined symbol: purple_media_element_info_get_type

I searched on the internet and can not find a solution. The clues on the internet says that's because the piding I use is the older version of libpurple. But I think I've removed all with purge and reinstalled it. Maybe some legacy binary is referenced. What or where it might be? Or where there may contain related information.

Ubuntu :: Pidgin - Add Buddies Through CLI?

Apr 21, 2011

I recently began at a new company that uses google apps for domains. The problem is, there are nearly 150 employees and no centralized address book to speak of. I managed to get a list of legal names and email addresses out of the HR department, but I'd like to build my google address book as well as my pidgin buddy list.Pidgin buddy lists are in the format code...

I've tried to simply edit blist.xml, but the act of actually ADDING a buddy does more than simply stick them into your list, it actually performs a server action to do mutual authentication and stuff. So my question is: Is there a way I can run a script that will "add" all these people onto my buddy list without me having to type each email address and full name by hand?

I use pidgin for IRC regularly and am wondering if there is a way for it to show notifications when others talk?

I have "others talk in chat" selected for the sound notifications, but I'd really like it to use the visual notifications (the notification applet?), like it does when I'm chatting with someone over IM. Is that possible?
