Compile Pidgin 2.5.0 for Ubuntu

20Aug08

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

cd pidgin-2.5.0
./configure --enable-gnutls=yes
make && sudo make install
