Configuring Pidgin to work with Lync server in Arch Linux

Hi all,

The organization i work for uses Lync as the official commumicator, and we are recommended to use them as well. The challenging part is that am running arch linux with a tiling window manager, which is not so supported configuration for a Lync client. Somehow i managed to make it work. Here are the steps (am writing it specifically with Arch Linux in mind, but the configurtion part should be applicable for any linux distro). There are two parts in the process.

  1. Setup Pidgin

  2. Configure Pidgin for Lync

Setup Pidgin

Have a good time with Arch Linux.
