hey!

i emerged pidgin (stable one), but there is no executable:

Code:
[stephan@localhost ~]$ whereis pidgin
pidgin:


also it seems that portage does not install any executable for pidgin:
Code:
>>> Completed installing pidgin-2.5.9-r1 into /var/tmp/portage/net-im/pidgin-2.5.9-r1/image/

i use these flags:
Code:
localhost stephan # emerge -pv pidgin

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] net-im/pidgin-2.5.9-r1  USE="dbus nls perl -bonjour -debug -doc -eds -gadu -gnutls -groupwise -gstreamer -gtk -meanwhile -ncurses -networkmanager -prediction -qq -sasl -silc -spell -tcl -tk -zephyr" 0 kB


so any ideas?

If you build it as is, pidgin is in fact libpurple.
If you want an user interface, rebuild it with the gtk or ncurses useflag.
