Compile Pidgin 2.5.0 for Ubuntu
Finally Pidgin 2.5.0 is released. Offline message with MSN is supported as well as Ability to create custom smileys :)
Now I don’t have to log into MSN with other messenger to check if I have any offline messages.
I have not seen it updated on Hardy repo so I decided to build from source
Firstly get all the required headers.
sudo apt-get install build-essential network-manager-dev
sudo apt-get build-dep pidgin
And then extract the file.
tar jxvf pidgin-2.5.0.tar.bz2
Finally compile it
make && sudo make install
