error installing pidgin-data, conflict with pidgin-facebookchat

I tried to send in a bug report, but it was refused.

Anyway, I'm getting a show stopping installation error on pdigin-data.
apparently one of the files in this upgrade conflicts with a file in another
package: pidgin-facbookchat

trying to overwrite '/usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/protocols/48/facebook.png',
which is also in package pidgin-facebookchat 0

I can't seem to get past this error - my package manager just fails all the
time and won't go beyond this error to upgrade the rest of my system and

Any insight you might have would be most appreciated.
