Pidgin ZNC Helper
ZNC Helper uses message timestamp from a ZNC Bouncer (
and sets them within Pidgin so that replayed messages will be displayed with
the correct timestamp.
Despite its name, ZNC Helper is independent from Pidgin UI since version 1.8 and therefore should be usable with other libpurple clients, such as finch, too.
Installation on Windows
For the binary version, extract all the contents of
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
We love patches.
