Thumbs down Pidgin problem


Yah. My friend is using Linux Mint, and needs the latest pidgin as it supports myspace im.

However, there are only rpms for this version, and converting from alien causes dependency problems. I think what it needs is 2.3's pidgin-data. I have tried to locate this, but so far, in vain.

Can i get some help? Is there a place that has 2.3 out in a .deb binary?

Thanks!

It's in the debian testing repositories. If you need a backported version (I have no idea how mint relates to debian) it's to be found at http://download.tuxfamily.org/emiscabpo/misc-backports/ along with a lot of other things.

That ain't gonna work. There are so many dependencies. I tried to install it, it needs pidgin-data, so i install pidgin-data. Then i try to install pidgin again, it needs libpurple0, so i get libpurple0, but it needs nbr4 or something. Which isn't in the repo you gave me.

This is why I like slack...

Any other ideas?

All I can suggest then is building it yourself.

http://www.pidgin.im/download/

Unless you know which version of ubuntu mint parallels
