I just install Pidgin. I cannot login facebook chat with Pidgin anymore (API deprecated), so Pidgin stuck at connecting status. How can I open account manager to remove the FB account and add another account?
For those of you who want to use Facebook Chat in Pidgin, there's a new plugin which makes this possible, called purple-facebook.
To install purple-facebook in Ubuntu, Linux Mint and derivatives, you can use its official repository. To add the repository and install the plugin, use the following commands:
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jgeboski/xUbuntu_$(lsb_release -rs)/ /' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jgeboski.list" cd /tmp && wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jgeboski/xUbuntu_$(lsb_release -rs)/Release.key sudo apt-key add - < Release.key sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install purple-facebook
Once installed, add a new account in Pidgin (Accounts > Manage Accounts > Add) and in the Protocol dropdown, select "Facebook" (important: NOT "Facebook (XMPP)"):
