Install Pidgin 2.0.0 on Ubuntu Feisty (with all plugins)

May 12th 2007 in Feisty, Pidgin, Pidgin Plugins, Ubuntu

You can easily get the vanilla Pidgin 2.0 .deb (installation file for Ubuntu Feisty).

The only thing i was missing badly were the plugins! I was really used to the libnotify and autoreply plugins. Anyway, so i’ve compiled a .deb here for the Purple Plugin Pack.

  1. Album
  2. Auto Accept
  3. Auto-rejoin
  4. Auto Reply

Edit: Thanks to Karthik, we have 64 bit debs for the plugin pack too!

Edit2: Some people are shamelessly copying this article and posting it on their blogs/sites. They were even hot linking to my .deb files. So now i am using to distribute the deb files. Please do let me know if anyone faces issues with that 🙂

Edit3: Rapidshare link for 32 bit and 64 bit plugin pack added.

Edit4: Pidgin updated to v2.0.2.

Edit5: Plugin Pack updated to v2.0.0 for i386 architecture.
