    Since some time built-in Facebook plugin in Pidgin isn’t working – the way to use Pidgin as a chat client with Facebook account is a little bit more difficult.

    First you need to add repository:

    sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jgeboski/xUbuntu_$(lsb_release -rs)/ /' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jgeboski.list"

    And add keys for repository:

    cd /tmp && wget  http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jgeboski/xUbuntu_$(lsb_release -rs)/Release.key
    sudo apt-key add - < Release.key

    Then update apt-get and install package:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install purple-facebook

    And you have working Facebook chat for Pidgin.

    Additionally info how to install Pidgin Telegram support for second most used chat on internet:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install telegram-purple
