Read Me

This is the package containing the build environment for Pidgin.

I would say it's already pretty usable (and I am using it myself). The MacOSX integration could be a bit better but I'll just wait there for the Gtk+ MacOSX port, they are implementing on related stuff (IGE Mac).

Directory structure:

* pidgin-src 		: -> link to current sources
* pidgin-src-orig	: -> link to current original sources
* pidgin-2.5.5		: the patched Pidgin sources
* pidgin-2.5.5-orig	: the original sources (needed there for diffing)
* pidgin-macosx		: Xcode project files
* pidgin-otr-3.1.0	: OTR plugin
* gnutls-2.6.4		: patched GnuTLS sources
* gfire-0.7.1		: patched Gfire sources
* pidgin-facebookchat-1.47 : patched Facebookchat sources

Install the Gtk+ framework (together with Cairo and GLib, if not included in the framework already) to /Library/Frameworks/. At the time of writing (2009-03-10), the frameworks included here should be the newest one (build from SVN). If that one is outdated, you can download it from

Now, you should be able to load the Xcode project in pidgin-macosx and build Pidgin.

This Pidgin port for MacOSX is maintained by Albert Zeyer.
