Pidgin Plugins for peace of mind


I guess the title says it all πŸ˜›

1) Group Blocker

This plugin allows you to block an entire group in plugin. Nice if you have a group of Irritating people in your chat list.

An Arch package for this is available on AUR here.

2) Away on Lock

Pidgin has a feature to set your status to away after a while if idle. However, this feature is known to be quite buggy especially on the Windows version of Pidgin.

The following plugins can be used for the same —

For Linux – Away on Lock. An arch package for the same can be found on the AUR here.

For Windows – Lock ‘n’ Roll

Lock ‘n’ Roll does not change the status if it is busy, invisible or already away. I see this as a bug in the busy case. The code is quite simple to understand and edit and also has documentation. If anyone has a pidgin windows devel environment, that can be changed easily.

Other Third Party Pidgin Plugins.

Since this is my first post of this year, Happy New Year people πŸ™‚
