Description:

Saves Pidgin (and other LibPurple based) accounts passwords in KWallet (encrypted) instead of the default ~/.purple/accounts.xml (in plaintext).
Original idea and implementation (in C) can be found at http://kainaw.com/libpurple/. This plugin is implemented in Perl and uses DBus to connect to KWallet; only works with KDE SC 4.

Installation

Just copy the plugin file to the libpurple plugins directory; for the current user that is ~/.purple/plugins/.
More about installation, usage and screenshots here: http://amihaila.wordpress.com/2010/07/15/pidgin-can-save-passwords-in-kwallet/

This is what KDE community should be doing. Rather than KDE-fying a lot of apps better integration of KDE with existing apps and libraries will be great. I don't mean that we should stop doing the great work in developing apps. But seriously at some points *standing on shoulders of giant* helps. Any libpurple based KDE chat app?

I'm using Slackware (current version) with KDE 4.4.5 and this plugin works great. I like it. Thanks for the plugin.

We always love the stuff like this

Its cool to have gnome embracing kde
which results in stronger DE for linux
