The GPLUGIN_CORE_FLAGS_NONE issue is resolved by installing gplugin-hg with changes to its PKGBUILD noted in my comment on its AUR page.

wont build; "error: ‘GPLUGIN_CORE_FLAGS_NONE’ undeclared (first use in this function)"

You should put in a check, to make sure the user is using a UTF-8 Locale; otherwise, it will fail to build.

Also, pkg-config files are not being included with the package. [Located in, build/meson-private/] They are not copied by the installer, as such a line to copy them, to "usr/lib/pkgconfig/" and symlink "pidgin-3.pc > pidgin.pc", as well as "purple-3.pc > purple.pc", would resolve it.

Thanks ^_^

Impossible to build. Package "webkitgtk3" does not exists.

Please change:
Otherwise mercurial repo download fails...

Is there a way to patch pidgin+libpurple to use webkit2gtk (gtk+3 already) rather than webkitgtk? Actually Arch considers webkit1 insecure, and deprecated:

The package builds well, but you need to remove lines 95 and 96. Apparently the files to be deleted aren't there any more.

Anyone wanting to use pidgin with Skype for Business needs to be running the latest dev versions of pidgin, pidgin-sipe and libnice from .

However, you need to be careful when building pidgin-hg (after installing the tieto libnice) as it contains 2.x and 3.x (default) branches. You get a different branch when using this PKGBUILD depending on which was updated last. To force makepkg/hg to checkout the 'default', 3.x branch you need to change the source line to:
