How to install Discord-Plugin in Pidgin

Post by Sebbo84 » Sat Jan 20, 2018 10:03 pm

Hello, I'm a noob who installed Linux Mint Mate two weeks ago.

I use discord for chatting with friends but my 32-bit-Netbook (Intel Atom N550) isn't supported by the discord-application.

Now I found a third-party plugin for pidgin called purple-discord. This should work on Gentoo and CentOs but I have no Idea if it is meant to be installed on a mint/ubuntu/debian. As far as I understand it is described how to compile this plugin but I have no real Idea how to do that or if this works on mint.

Could someone explain to me how to install this plugin for pidgin if it is possible? Would be very nice.

https://github.com/EionRobb/purple-discord#readme <- this is the description for the plugin.
