I have just installed pidgin from the source code that i downloaded from pidgin site, it compile correctly with using below commands :

./configure --disable-gtkspell ; make ; make install

but, when i try to start pidgin from terminal, occurres an error :‌

pidgin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libfarstream-0.1.so.0: undefined symbol: g_key_file_free

how can i solve this problem ?

Thanks for your attention :)

  • Why haven't you used the Pidgin for the repos or used abs to build pidgin using a PKGBUILD?

  • Looks like the configure script isn't correctly working out the dependencies. Do you have libfarstream installed?
