will there be any for portable? i love it in 2.5.1 and would love to see it to work in the portable version as well

Just add it

I don't know if its fully portable, but if you want it just add it. I don't think there will be a package from here cause John only includes the plugins which are included in the official download.

just copy & paste...

mojoka,

goto facebook plugin page on google(http://code.google.com/p/pidgin-facebookchat/),
download the application link library(/dll for windows & .so for linux based) & copy it to data/.purple/plugins

it works for me but i don't know how portable it's.... i mean you will get it working on portable but i'm not sure whether it will leave any trace or not...

It is fully portable. It's

It is fully portable. It's basically a plugin. I've been using it for a while. Just copy the plugin in and you are set.

Hmm

I had to put mine here:
\PortableApps\PidginPortable\App\Pidgin\plugins

but it appears to work ... need to get someone to test and make sure I'm online (project for after work time heh!)

Oh earlier I posted:

I had to put mine here:
\PortableApps\PidginPortable\App\Pidgin\plugins

I meant I put my dll there in that directory...
From there I added a new account and Facebook was an option.
Logged in with my details and all was sweet.

I had like 99 emails lmao!

*awesome*

Thanks

Resolved!

== Secure Certificates == If you're having trouble with "Invalid certificate" in Pidgin, download the [http://pidgin-facebookchat.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/login.facebook.com.pem .pem file] and add it for login.facebook.com in Tools->Certificates in Pidgin.

That's actually the best way

That's actually the best way to fix the Facebook certificate problem. My solution was to get a ssl certificate and install it again but that implies knowing a thing or two about programming.

icon pack

can someone tell me where to install this so it gets backed up with the data back up?

Re:

How does the data backup work?

Account Icon

I'd be interested in adding a Facebook icon same as ICQ or MSN etc.

What is my username for Facebook?

I tried the email address, but it rejects that and fills it in the domain area where the "@meebo.org" is.

It's the same that you use to

It's the same that you use to login to Facebook itself. That should be your email address. Also, it shouldn't have anything to do with Meebo, that's a separate plugin. Perhaps you're mixing up the two?

not installing

I don't know what's wrong. Everytime I try to install this plugin, it tells me it can't find my Pidgin directory. I'm trying to install it onto my Portable Pidgin which operates as my main Pidgin on the hard drive. Since its an .exe, I have no way to pick the install apart to find the dll to slip in somewhere. I'm going nuts and I want this FB plugin for Pidgin. Any idea if Pidgin/Portable Pidgin will ever include FB by default?

Local Only

They don't provide an installer for the portable version. And last I tried it, it's pretty unstable (crashes Pidgin a few times a day), so we won't be bundling it by default at the moment.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I understand. Thank you for

I understand. Thank you for the answers to my questions. I provided a helpful article below, in case others are stuck like I was. If anyone needs these files and can't find them, they can just message or email me.

Never mind...

I figured it out. If you're having trouble like I am...do this...scroll down to "Pidgin Portable" and follow their special instructions. Make sure you have the .dll's and icons for FB, otherwise, you won't be able to do the instructions and it won't work.

Alternatively

To ensure you have the icons, latest certificates, etc download the regular windows installer and use Universal Extracter to extract the files then just paste them into the relevant folders. I've been using it for a while and with the latest bug fix (1.54) I've had no issues period.
