I installed Pidgin as it has a great add-on for Office communicator that works really well... However I can't add any new contacts because there's no menu! I can open the "buddy list" and it shows my previously added buddies with no problem. But there's no menus to add accounts, buddies etc. No global menu either (in notification bar as happens normally with other applications).
I'm wondering whether it has anything to do with my dual-screen setup, but if I mirror the displays - no change.
I'm using 11.10, in dual-screen mode, 2D (not enough memory for 3D)
