Pidgin Plugins: Group message with Pidgin on Ubuntu/Debian

[Pidgin]
How to send a message to a group with Pidgin???
This is a Pidgin plugin I’ve modified and compiled.

1. get the file:
wget http://www.overinter.net/deb/pidgin-groupmsg_2.2.0-2_i386.deb

2. install it
sudo apt-get install libglib1.2
sudo dpkg -i pidgin-groupmsg_2.2.0-2_i386.deb

3. it’s done
restart your lovely Pidgin and open Plugins window (Tools/Plugins or pressing Ctrl+U)
There is a plugin named GroupIM should appears on it. Enable that thing, close the Plugins window and see the magic (right click on a buddy group).

    Is it possible? I’ve been trying for weeks to find a plugin or functionality that lets me start, maintain and contribute to a group MSN chat for conference purposes at work.

    Hi Keith,

    I think Pidgin itself supports conference with MSN.
    I don’t use MSN but I see “Initiate chat” when right-click on a buddy. Then I have a “MSN Chat” and can invite more people by “Conversation>>Invite…”
