I added pidgin-ppa.list to the /etc/apt/sources.list.d with "deb trusty main"
and changed in sources.list to trusty (Ubuntu 14.04) the have done an
"aptitude update". While trying to install pidgin while an update to Ubuntu
trusty I received error message
"Unsupported distribution Version
While LinuxMint is supported by the Pidgin PPA, you are running version 17,
which is not.

If this is an old version of LinuxMint, it's probably reached its
end-of-life.  If it's a new version, please use the support at mailing
list to ask for an update to the pidgin-ppa package"
