Compiled Pidgin SIPE plugin for Win32

By mattie, Fri 22 April 2011, in category Code

libsipe, OCS, Pidgin

Update: You can now get builds off sourceforge.

If you want to know how I built it…

Since we use OCS at work quite a bit, and recently we’ve updated to Group Chat - I’ve manged to compile libsipe.dll using the latest trunk.

I’ll update it when there are updates to the project since I have it all running nicely on my Ubuntu box![STRIKEOUT:I’m not sure how to get Group Chat up and running as of yet, maybe someone could help me? I don’t know what URI to put in. But at least the dialog is there in this plugin version.]

Managed to sort that one out :) - was entering the wrong group chat server URL. I’ve setup autobuilding for every week, you can check out the DLLs here \<nope, lost everything in a server crash>

If you come across any problems please let me know so I can investigate :)

Enjoy!

Some notes on how I built this Firstly, you need to build Pidgin. I followed this guide. But specifically, this is what I did : I built everything under /usr/src/pidgin Installed the following packages via apt-get (sudo apt-get install mingw32 mingw32-binutils mingw32-runtime) Followed Step 2 in the guide linked to the URL above Installed Pidgin’s build dependencies as per the guide Followed the cross-compiling guide Built pidgin using the mingw make file (using the Build Pidgin instructions from the above guide) Once it built cleanly, I grabbed the latest source for libsipe via gitFollowed only the 1st step from the libsipe website, just to get the code Grabbed the dependencies specified in this wiki article I then had to edit the Makefile.mingw (and other occurrences of the file) to meet the pidgin version I was compiling against Tried to compile it, it came back with a whole bunch of errors and I manually went through all the error’ing related files (from memory, usually a bunch of header files) and made sure they were set
