pidgin not showing notification bubble


i am using the latest version of Debian Squeeze. everything is up to date but the pidgin program doesn't display the notification icons in the top right corner like it's supposed to, whats the problem here because i don't like to manually check to see who has logged and who has logged off. thanks for the help

Before I get too deep into this, have you enabled the notification plugin?

Edit - Check to see if you have the pidgin-libnotify package installed, it is what you need to get the notifications you are looking for.

Have you checked to make sure you are using the latest version? Also, run pidgin from the command line and see if you are getting any errors or warnings being outputted from the program to see if there is an actual problem.
