hi all,

the problem:

In my Company the employees has free access to chat with anyone in the 
world by Pidgin (MSN, ICQ etc) but  it´s reducing productivity !
so i want to limit it !

one solution:

i thought in a simple way to avoid or limit it hidding or disabling 
buttons on Pidgin like Add Contact, Create Account, etc creating 2 
pidgins exec
so if an employee wants to add some contact, it should ask a permission 
first... (only Clients of the Company should have permission...)

1 exec of pidgin like (boss) allowing to create account and add contacts
2 exec of pidgin like (users or employees) NOT allowing to create 
account and add contacts

I´m using Linux and downloaded pidgin´s source code and it´s so 
difficult to find the respectives files to change the status of these 
buttons before compilation !

anyone helps me with it ? what files should i change ?

thanks in advance
