Issues loading AWN Pidgin plugin? Me too. The plugin comes distributed with a "pidgin_awn.so", but no instructions on how to get it working. Unfortunately for lots of people, this plugin is compiled for specific Pidgin versions running on specific kernels, and when you try to compile it, you get errors such as: "pidgin_awn.h: No such file or directory"
This is because the required header file isn't distributed with the plugin! Hopefully they'll fix their link. In the mean use this one: [click here]
- Download and extract the plugin
- Make sure the plugins directory exists:
- Compile the plugin from source:
sudo make install
- Now launch Pidgin and enable the plugin through Tools >> Plugins >> AWN. If you're luckier than I was, it will work. Mine's still broken (Pidgin 2.3.1).
