Something is wrong when a user has to ask on a forum how to add a display picture! I'm going to contact the Pidgin developers and tell them about this.

just out of curiosity, what service are you using for pidgin? if it's MSN, i've found AMSN to be a much better replication of the service than pidgin was. i still use pidgin for my aim and yahoo needs though.

Yes, Gaim became Pidgin. There were legal issues with AIM (AOL's Instant Messenger), so they had to change the name.
