Pidgin 2.0.0


has anybody tried this new version from the current slackware directory?

I tried it, and it doesn't seem to want to find my MSN connection. I had this problem with gaim 1.50 before, but fixed it by adding /usr/lib/firefox to my ld path, so that gaim could find the appropriate ssl libraries.

But I think pidgin either doesn't know the libraries are there, uses different libraries, or has been compiled without ssl support. Got any clues?

This is the script that was used to build it. Maybe you can find what you're looking for in there?

You can always build it manually

In the slackbuild change --enable-nss=no to --enable-nss=yes. Works for me now.

Edit: I just noticed --enable-nss=no appears twice. Make sure to change the last one and/or remove one of them.

Edit2: Also make sure you have seamonkey installed.

please read the changelog, when using -current.
pidgin/gaim is no longer build against seamonkey, but against mozilla-nss. you'll have to install this package.

I thought MSN would work with either NSS or GnuTLS? That build script shows Pidgin is built with GnuTLS support.

I got MSN working with Pidgin 2.0.0 and Slackware Current.

You need these packages from the n folder to use gnutils: cyrus-sasl, gnutils, libgcrypt, libgpg-error, openldap-client, openssl.

You don't need seamonkey unless you want to go that route. It takes a lot of space.

Hope this helps.

I did read the changelog. I didn't see any reference to pidgin(or gaim) now using gnutls. Although I have nothing against it, and think it will work fine.

I did just what dhubsith recommended, and it works great. I might just take the /usr/lib/firefox path designation out of my /etc/ld.so.conf too.

Thanks for taking the time.
