Install
=======

To install Guifications, simply extract the contents of this zip file
to your pidgin install directory, which is C:\Program Files\Pidgin by
default.

To Compile
==========

You need a complete Pidgin build environment set up, and Pidgin already
compiled.

If you're using a version of MinGW 3.1-1 or lower you'll need to update 
some of the api, and extract/copy it into your MinGW directory.  You can 
get the updated api from:

http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/w32api-3.1.tar.gz?download

You also need fontconfig and freetype2 development bits, which you can get
from:

http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/fontconfig-dev-2.2.2-20040412.zip and
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gnuwin32/freetype-2.1.2-1-lib.zip?download

extract those in ~/win32-dev/gtk_2_0 (where ~/win32-dev is part of your Pidgin
build environment)

Then extract the Guifications source into:

  pidgin-source-tree/plugins/

pidgin-source being what ever path you extracted the pidgin source tree to.

For example, if your pidgin source tree is in /home/user/pidgin-VERSION
you want to "cd" over to /home/user/pidgin-VERSION/plugins/ and type:

  tar zxvf guifications-VERSION.tar.gz

Then cd into the source dir

  cd guifications

Followed by

  make -f Makefile.mingw
  make -f Makefile.mingw install

When it's done building copy

  win32-install-dir/plugins/guifications.dll
  win32-install-dir/pixmaps/guifications

to your pidgin install dir, (Keeping the already defined tree structure of
course)

And you should be good to go.  Restart pidgin and try it out.
