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

Untar the source tarball:

  tar zxvf guifications-VERSION.tar.gz

Next run the configure script.  If you have installed Pidgin and it's headers
in the standard location, then configure should find the Pidgin source. If not,
you need to set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH to point to the
directory containing pidgin.pc before running configure. You should configure
with the same prefix was used for Pidgin (for packages this would be /usr), eg:

  PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ./configure --prefix=/usr

As long as you haven't gotten any error messages during the configure script,
you'll be read to compile.  To compile just type 'make':

  make

Guifications will install to the Pidgin lib directory and all of the
configuration images into the Pidgin datadir.  These directories are usually
/usr/local/lib/pidgin and /usr/local/share/pixmaps/pidgin, so be sure you have
write access to these directories, or use 'su' to become root and then run
'make install':

  make install

Once thats done, you are good to go.  Restart Pidgin, go into the plugins
dialog.  Enable Guifications, right out of the box it will work with all the
default settings.  There is always a large configuration for you to play with
if you would like to.
