I can't find detailed instructions for Fedora. On GitHub there are instructions only for deb-based distributions. Debian, Mint, Ubuntu etc. I want to know how to install this plugin on Fedora.

  1. Build it yourself, following this instruction from purple-facebook's GIT repository.
  2. If you are willing to trust the creator, you can try to use this COPR (no guarantee of quality nor continuity).
  3. Update: I created the Fedora packages using OpenSUSE Build Service (they are easier to use than Fedora one, and multi-distro as well!), the instructions are here.

Open a terminal and type the following command: sudo dnf install purple-plugin_pack-pidgin. That will install A set of plugins for pidgin.

Let us know if it works for you.

It will not add working purple-facebook for Pidgin. Facebook doesn't use XMPP now. There is a new, working plugin. Question about installing this plugin on Fedora.
