I've enabled Pidgin helper in Docky. But it really doesn't do anything.. There's no difference at all whether it's enabled or not.. I really don't know why but it doesn't do what it should like in the screenshot in it's page

I tried to debug Docky:

From your debug is it clear that the helper is crashing:

[Info 15:01:22.465] [Helper] pidgin_control.py has exited (Code 0).

I would suggest you report this bug to the developers.
