 There are two major GStreamer versions: 0.1 and 1.0. Pidgin currently supports both, but you should use GStreamer 1.0. If possible, use `dpkg --get-selections` to find and uninstall all GStreamer 0.1 packages. If some software you use depends on them, just check the `./configure` output or `config.log` to make sure that GStreamer 1.0 is being used. The minor version available in Ubuntu 15.04's packages is currently new enough to compile Pidgin 3.0, so just install from there.

+* Another GSoC student, who was using GTK+2, reported weird GUI errors like missing input boxes that were unreported in the debug log. GTK+3 is your best bet - `sudo apt-get install gtk+3` should get you at least most of the way there.
+* Run Pidgin from a terminal window (just type `pidgin`, or the full pathname) so that you can see loader warnings and other such non-fatal console reports.
 === "Help!" ===
