Setting up the environment

You will need:

  • F2FCore shared library (libf2fcore.so)
  • Libpurple shared library (libpurple.so) (compile from pidgin source)
  • Python 2.5 shared library (libpython2.5.so)
  • GLib shared library (libglib.so)
  • IDE of your choice
  • Plugin file(s) from googlecode project

To make a working plugin you will need to compile the file(s) from googlecode project to a shared library (libf2fplugin.so) and link it to the libraries. Then copy it to ~/.purple/plugins and run Pidgin IM.

OR

Checkout the project from Googlecode with eclipse and configure paths (Eclipse project also has a builder that automatically copies the library to ~/.purple/plugins)
