Just copy the following code and past in one file named “pidgin”

CODE:
#!/bin/bash

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libxml2-dev gettext libnss-dev libnspr-dev
sudo wget http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/pidgin/pidgin-2.0.1.tar.bz2

tar xvfj pidgin-2.0.1.tar.bz2
cd pidgin-2.0.1

./configure
make
sudo make install

then open the terminal and type

chmod 777 pidgin

./pidgin

Now search pidgin in Applications>Internet> Pidgin Internet Messenger
if you don’t find pidgin here then try /home/rana/pidgin-2.0.1/Pidgin Internet Messenger.
And enjoy 😀
