Hello to everyone!

I want to try Pidgin with voice and video support for video calls. 
However, it seems that there're no Pidgin vv builds for Ubuntu (or I 
haven't found one), so I've tried to build it by myself, but the make 
fails with

/usr/bin/ld: gtkmedia.o: undefined reference to symbol 'XSetErrorHandler'
//usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ error adding symbols: DSO missing 
from command line

How it is possible to solve this? I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 with pidgin-2.10.11

Thanks in advance
