gt[xarchiver]$ pidgin -v
Pidgin 2.0.2
gt[xarchiver]$ ldd `which pidgin`|grep gnome
gt[xarchiver]$

Which pidgin are you using?

gt[xarchiver]$ ldd `which evince`|grep gnome
        libgnomeprintui-2-2.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgnomeprintui-2-2.so.0
(0xb7bae000)
        libgnomeprint-2-2.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgnomeprint-2-2.so.0 (0xb7b46000)
        libgnomecanvas-2.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgnomecanvas-2.so.0 (0xb7b1b000)
gt[xarchiver]$

So no GNOME dependencies. Jani what are you trying to do?

No reason to drop gaim/pidgin beause of the above unless you refer to
a newer version than 2.0.2.

Please let me understand. Did you include gnome dependencies in the
next Xubuntu Gutsy?
