If I understood correctly: you just need some direction on getting the pidgin application installed and running. In that case I propose you click This link to the pidgin .pet file(puppy uses .pet to auto install packages/programs). You can link to the file yourself with-out using the link I posted at Good luck and welcome to linux!!!
