This is probably not a Pidgin-specific problem, and you may want to
try the Ubuntu support forums.

That said, how did you install Pidgin?  If you believe you installed
it using the Ubuntu package management system, run 'dpkg -l pidgin' at
a command prompt.  If the leftmost column of the line containing
the 'pidgin' package (probably the last line) is not 'ii', Pidgin is
not installed properly, and you should try running 'sudo apt-get
install pidgin'.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
