I cannot send pictures with pidgin to my facebook-friends. Does anybody know how to solve my problem?

I don't think this is supported by Pidgin. Only if your chat partner is also using a standard XMPP client you can send files to each other. If the other is using Facebook chat on the website I don't think that will work. Likewise for Google Talk. – gertvdijk Sep 1 '13 at 15:25
I still want to know though. If Facebook's client can send pictures pidgin must be able to do it too. – Lodewijk Jun 13 '14 at 19:16
