Explaining about old pidgin

Why it is explaining about old version of pidgin with checkbox in Facebook XMPP section? Arch is rolling distro, so I think we do not need to explain about old versions.

Of course, feel free to update the article. -- Kynikos (talk) 01:23, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Avahi needs to be installed, started and enabled for Bonjour protocol to work on Pidgin

By default, after installing avahi package the service (avahi-daemon.service) doesn't start nor is enable.

In this situation, the Bonjour protocol will not work for Pidgin, and an error message will appear indicating the lack of a mDNS server (or something like that).


pacman -S avahi

systemctl enable --now avahi-daemon.service

, Bonjour will work fine in Pidgin.

Should this be added to this wiki?
