Run it in a terminal.

pidgin --force-online --config=~/.purple.test

Take a look at the log files in ~/.purple/logs and take a look at

Note, I don't have knowledge about this program, nor is it installed on
my machine, I searched the web for   man pidgin   and got the man page.
If something doesn't work, it's always useful to run the command in a
terminal-emulation, if available in verbose mode.

Always check --help or man pages. Take a look at
~/.xsession-errors, /var/log etc..
