How To Install & Configure Pidgin Internet Messenger

[blip.tv ?posts_id=4051114&dest=-1]

In this Ubuntu Video Tutorial we will be looking at installing and configuring Pidgin Internet Messenger. Pidgin was the original Instant Messenger in Ubuntu 9.04 and older. It offered a plethora of support for different services. In this tutorial we look at bringing it back to Ubuntu. Pidgin does a fantastic job over empathy, as it has been in a stable state for years. The only downside is that is may seem dated in appearance. For this tutorial we will be looking a configuring a Gtalk account. As IM clients go Pidgin doesn’t skimp on the extras, there are tons of plug-ins making it perfect for tweaking. You want Facebook support? Not a problem just install the plug-in from the application manager.
