Pidgin Unhighlight System Messages
This plugin removes the highlight flag from system messages. This works around a bug which was introduced with Pidgin 2.10.7 and leads to a highlighted IRC channel each time you join when you set the channel topic.

pidgin-unhighlight-system-messages in the ZIP file either to the installation
directory of Pidgin (typically
C:\Program Files\Pidgin) or to your .purple
user directory (typically
See below for how to compile the source code version into a binary ZIP file.
Installation on Linux
To install the plugin on Linux you need to extract a release tarball and compile it from source:
sudo apt-get install pidgin-dev ./configure make sudo make install
Note: By default the plugin will be installed to
/usr/local. If you
installed Pidgin through your package manager, it is most likely installed into
which pidgin returns
./configure --prefix=/usr in this case.
Note: When you use the repository directly or one of those auto-generated
"Source code" archives, you need to run
./autogen.sh before running
Building on Windows
In order to build the plugin for Windows an already-compiled source tree of Pidgin is required. Please see the Pidgin for Windows Build Instructions for details.
After that you need to create a file named
local.mak that points to the
Pidgin source tree, e.g.:
Now you can build the plugin:
make -f Makefile.mingw
