Comments on 2008-05-14 Pidgin and Twitter

I could add twitter in gtalk and aim without much problem. Did you try that?

Well, I don’t use separate clients for GTalk and AIM. I use Pidgin on Windows (at work) and Adium on a Mac (at home) for all my instant messaging needs. Both are multi-protocol clients based on libpurple (formerly libgaim).

Apparently this no longer works with the latest Active Perl which uses 5.10 – I wasted way too much time on this other Windows box trying to get it to work. Gaaah!

Also note pidgin-identica-status – which I also can’t get to work on this Windows box. Damn.

After tracking down all the stuff I still get this:

c:/Programme/Pidgin $ perl -I . -I perlmod plugins/
Can't find 'boot_Purple' symbol in ./libPurple.dll
 at plugins/ line 1
Compilation failed in require at plugins/ line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at plugins/ line 1.
