Guten Tag Pidgin Support,

what do i need here, i have gstreamer and farsight installed:

jcf at jens:~/pidgin-2.6.2$ sudo dpkg --get-selections | egrep -i -e gstream -e farsight
gstreamer0.10-alsa                              install
gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg                            install
gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs                          install
gstreamer0.10-gnonlin-dev                       install
gstreamer0.10-plugins-base                      install
gstreamer0.10-plugins-farsight                  install
gstreamer0.10-plugins-good                      install
gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly                      install
gstreamer0.10-tools                             install
gstreamer0.10-x                                 install
libfarsight0.1-3                                install
libfarsight0.1-dev                              install
libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0                 install
libgstreamer0.10-0                              install
libgstreamer0.10-dev                            install
totem-gstreamer                                 install

but the ./configure tells me:

checking for GSTREAMER... yes
checking for gst_registry_fork_set_enabled in -lgstreamer-0.10... yes
checking for GSTINTERFACES... no
checking for FARSIGHT... no
configure: error:
Dependencies for voice/video were not met.
Install the necessary gstreamer and farsight packages first.
Or use --disable-vv if you do not need voice/video support.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
