trying to switch default chat client in ubuntu 10.04


I have been using ubuntu for almost a week. and i am impressed on how it seems to fulfills most of my computer needs better than windows. when i click the new message indicator (the envelope), and click chat, by default it opens empathy. personally i prefer pidgin, and i would like to make it open pidgin instead of empathy when i press chat. it currently shows pidgin in the list anyway but i want it to appear as chat.

The only chat clients at the moment that integrate with the menu are Empathy and Pidgin. To make it default to Pidgin uninstall/remove Empathy.
