Installation ============ How to install pidgin-twitter-status Introduction ------------ Requirements: Pidgin, Perl and the following two Perl modules, which you may have to install manually: * XML::RSS * LWP::Simple Details ------- Is Pidgin Perl enabled? In Pidgin, navigate to Help->About and find Perl: Enabled If Perl is not enabled, you may have to install Perl and then re-install Pidgin. Install XML::RSS and LWP::Simple This depends on your operating system, but could be as simple as # cpan XML::RSS # cpan LWP::Simple If your OS or Perl installation uses a package system it's recommended you install the modules using that, if possible. Install pidgin-twitter-status ============================= Windows ------- Copy twitter-status.pl to your pidgin plugins directory. Usually C:\Documents and Settings\ <your_user_name> \Pidgin\plugins Linux ----- Copy twitter-status.pl to your pidgin plugins directory Usually ~/.purple/plugins/ Mac OSX ------- Pidgin is not available for Mac OS, but this plugin may work with Adium. I don't know, as I don't have regular access to a Mac. YMMV... Enable pidgin-twitter-status Using Pidgin, navigate to Tools -> Plugins and find Twitter Status. Enable it, and click the Configure Plugin button to open the plugin configuration dialog. Enter your Twitter RSS user feed (http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=username), configure other options, and click Close.
