Thank you Björn, it worked.

Now I don't know what to do. I read the README files but found nothing
except the ./configure , make , make install standard procedure, but
this does not work.
So i tried this :
- i executed the file , which created a configure file
- i then did : ./configure --enable-vv , which I think succeded with
just one error :
configure: error: XScreenSaver extension development headers not
found. Use --disable-screensaver if you do not need XScreenSaver
extension support, this is required for detecting idle time by mouse
and keyboard usage.
- I could not find the right package to solve this error, so i did :
./configure --enable-vv --disable-screensaver , which i think succeded
(after installing many -dev packages)
- then I did 'make' , then 'sudo make install'.

I think it installed Pidgin 2.7.2devel in my Ubuntu system, but how
can I create a .exe file for my WindowsVista system (which is in
dual-boot) ?

Thank you in advance for your help.
