New: With the updated Gaim-Encryption configuration, you should just get the Gaim-Encryption CVS:
cvs -z3 -d ":pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/gaim-encryption" co encrypt
and run the autogen.sh script:
From there on, it should be just like the release install.
Note: The Gaim development team is now actively discouraging people from using the Gaim CVS, as this has put
a huge strain on the Sourceforge CVS servers. Releases are pretty frequent- unless you've got a real need to use
CVS, I'd suggest just using the latest Gaim release.
Source: v 3.1:
for use with Pidgin 2.x. Here are the installation instructions.
Subversion: Instructions. The SVN build should work with the
current Pidgin Monotone build. If it doesn't, IM me: BillTompkins2 on AIM.
Fedora: You can find an RPM for Fedora Core at FreshRPMs or at Dries.
Mandriva: In the distribution, just "urpmi pidgin-encryption"
Gentoo: In the distribution, just "emerge pidgin-encryption"
Debian: In the distribution, just "apt-get install pidgin-encryption".
Ubuntu: In Ubuntu's "Universe" as Pidgin-Encryption.

Or, if you'd like, here are some instructions on how to build it yourself.
