 Replying to [comment:7 The_Cricket]:
 > Recently I downloaded it to try again and have the exact same issue as
 described above. This occurred straight after installing, I haven't even
 been able to open the program window at all since installing. The system
 tray icon appears then disappears with nothing else happening.

 If you want to open Pidgin without attempting to login to any accounts,
 then start it as `pidgin -n`.

 > Is it possible there are settings stored somewhere from when the program
 was being used months ago (that caused the problem) that were not removed
 on uninstalling and the program is reading again?

 Settings are not removed by an uninstall (or you wouldn't be able to
 upgrade). You can find them [wiki:"Using Pidgin#Whereismy.purpledirectory"
