How to install guifications in pidgin?


Hi.. How to install guifications plugin in pidgin? I've downloaded the .tar.gz file and extracted it. I also did the ./configure

But I'm when I try to give the 'make' command, it says:

Code:
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
What now?

Was ./configure successful? Normally the configure script creates the makefile for you, but if it fails, then there will be no makefile created.

and letting us know WHAT distro you are using would be very helpful
fedora 7 and 8 are past there End of Life and are not supported .
and did you read the two files in the folder called README and INSTALL ?

I'm sorry for late reply. I was busy. However, I got a deb file for guifications which worked like a charm. Thank you for all ur replies. I appreciate it.
