Gfire is an extension for Pidgin that allows for Xfire support. I compiled mine from source, partly because I can, partly because I was too lazy to google for a .deb, and partly because there’s no official Hardy AMD64 .deb availible on the above snapshot page. Here’s what I had to do to compile:
- Download and extract source archive (should be in a directory path without spaces)
- Install pidgin-dev and imagemagick
- From the source directory, run ./configure –prefix=/usr
- Run make
- Run sudo make install
Done! You don’t even have to restart Pidgin, just add another account and it’ll be in the dropdown protocol list!
