Pidgin: Meanwhile Plugin

Hello,

Where would I place the libmeanwhile-0.dll and libmeanwhile-1.dll so the Gaim can see it as a protocol I can select when creating accounts.

I currently have a working USB app of Gaim working with the meanwhile plugin. I used the instructions at the bottom of the windows port @ the gaim sourceforge page, but I would like to get it working with the portable app offered here.

I copied the meanwhile libs into E:\\PortableGaim\gaim\ but it still does not show up.

TIA,
Bobby

Update: I was actually able to get it to look like Portable Gaim with the splash screen etc. and work with the meanwhile protocol. I basically merged the two together. But it's def. not the binary built from this site. I would very much like to get meanwhile working with the PG binaries created here so I don't have to worry so much when upgrading.

Yeah that didn't work. It

Yeah that didn't work. It still displays (unknown) after I've copied my .gaim over and does not list it in the drop down of availble chat protocols.

Are you by chance building PortableGaim from Gaim 2.0 beta 1? I only ask because the same thing happens with that on a normal install.

Are you able to duplicate my issue or possibly get past it?

Got it!

meanwhile-1.dll goes in PortableGaim\gaim
libmwgaim.dll goes in PortableGaim\gaim\plugins

An odd split, but that's what it does. You can point the Meanwhile installer right at portable gaim (X:\PortableGaim\gaim) and it would work right.

Portable Gaim is based on 1.5.

Sweet!

That's what I was missing the libmwgaim.dll! I was just looking for meanwhile.x. I guess it helps to run the plugin installer and see where it puts things ;).

Yeah I was reaching on the 2.0 question..hehe.

Thanks so much for the quick response and help. Smile
