I am trying to install a perl plugin to pidgin, by placing the .pl file in the
~/.purple/plugins directory, as described here.
The problem is that when I put the .pl file in the directory and open the plugins dialog in Pidgin, my plugin does not appear. Does anyone know why this might be happening?
There is nothing in Help→About regarding Perl support, so I don't know whether it is enabled or not.
I am running Arch Linux and Pidgin 2.10.4.
EDIT As grawity pointed out below, I was looking in the wrong place for whether Perl was enabled. It is listed as enabled.
