What version are you using? 2.4? Try upgrading to 2.5.1 and see if that fixes your problem. If it doesn't, change your custom theme to something else and see if you got the minimize button then.

This isn't something I would go pointing blame at Mint for.

First go to your package manager and search for Pidgin, and mark it for uninstallation, apply changes and let it unintsall.

Then download all three .deb packages here: http://www.getdeb.net/release.php?id=3140

Install them in the order they say you are missing files which I think will be: libpurple0, pidgin, and then pidgin-data. Its a simple double click on them after you save them to your desktop, once installed, delete the .deb files and launch Pidgin as you normally would.
