I see the answer in the digest. Am downloading the offline installer now. 


Thank you.

Subject: Error downloading GTK+?


Hi all,


I looked in the FAQ and while there was a seemingly related topic, I was
unable to resolve my issue.


I d/l Pidgin 2.7.0 today and tried to install it, and the first thing it did
was give me an error: 


"Error Downloading the GTK+ Runtime:
0&dl_pkg=gtk> &gtk_version="


It gives me the option to Retry or Cancel, but Retry consistently fails with
the same message. If I Cancel, then the installation finishes, but Pidgin
won't start because it is missing GTK+ Runtime.


If I reinstall Pidgin 2.6.6 everything seems to work OK.


Any ideas?
