Unfortunately, I have couple of Skype accounts. And I desperately wanted to combine them all in one messenger. That’s where the idea of Pidgin came up. But of course nothing on this world is easy for me. I had to manually add Skype plugin for pidgin in order to add my accounts.
Here are the steps:
- Kill all running pidgin proccesses
- sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev libjson-glib-dev libpurple-dev
- git clone git://github.com/EionRobb/skype4pidgin.git
- cd skype4pidgin/skypeweb
- sudo make install
Then start Pidgin. When you try to add new account to Pidgin you will find Skype (HTTP) there waiting for you.
