Mail-ru agent in Linux

    This is a rather hackneyed question on the Internet, but I decided to add it because I recently discovered a good alternative for all existing options related to
    Neither qutim, nor mdc, nor on qt itself provided the necessary stability and functionality. And I decided to return with grief to my forgotten, but far from bad pidgin, and it turned out voila !!!, you don’t need to saw anything, everything is ready.
    In general, the installation is banal to the point of horror. But to describe it will be useful for future linux users:
    In general, by default in ubunt, I have 10.04 by default as pidgin 2.6. We need pidgin for newer, now it is 2.9 we can install it from the ppa repository, in the console:

    maximka@maxbuntu:~$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pidgin-developers/ppa
    maximka@maxbuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update
    maximka@maxbuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install pidgin
    maximka@maxbuntu:~$ pidgin -v
    Pidgin 2.9.0 (libpurple 2.9.0)

    Something like this, after that you need to download the plugin from a third-party website, we have two of them, we will use the first one:

    Download your deb package, install it by double-clicking , restart pidgin, and in the lists of protocols where accounts are connected we can observe a “red dog”. Rejoice, you can again chat with your blonde girlfriends from Windows and a mobile agent. Linux for everyone.
