I have actually emerged it, but the problem comes when I try to run it. It claims the executable is missing. I've retried twice already, and still the same errors.

Code:

>>> net-im/pidgin-2.4.0 merged.

>>> No packages selected for removal by clean
>>> Auto-cleaning packages...

>>> No outdated packages were found on your system.

 * Messages for package net-im/pidgin-2.4.0:

EI-01 ~ # pidgin
bash: pidgin: command not found

And yes, I have gtk2 in my USE.
Any ideas?

Pidgin requires the gtk USE flag be set in order to build the graphical client and the ncurses USE flag to be set in order to build the textual client that, if memory serves, is called "finch". Personally, I think this should be mentioned in the elog comments. It's confusing. :?

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads, please see Pidgin merges fine, but where's the bin?
