    I am using pidgin 2.3.1 now.
    When a Chat window is opened, trying to invite another person from menu 'Conversation - Invite'.
    That another person is not on buddy list. I expect pidgin to search the person from buddy name.
    But nothing to happen. Invitaion is not sent to the person.
    Old version of pidgin is same as 2.3.1.
    How can I invite a person on pidgin ?

      What protocol is this on? What do you mean you "expect pidgin to search the person from the buddy name"? What name for the buddy you wanted to invite did you use? How do you know the invitation wasn't sent? Did you ask your buddy?

        I don't know anything about sametime so I can't really comment on this much, you can search the filed bug reports on developer.pidgin.im to see if a bug for this exists (and if not file one for it). That should either find you a solution or prompt someone to give you a solution (or fix the bug if this is a bug).
