How To Disable Pidgin’s Annoying Facebook Notifications

By default, Pidgin supports Facebook Chat accounts, but, also by default, it shows desktop notifications whenever someone logs in or out. With Facebook Chat, that happens A LOT. It took me a little online searching to find out how to disable them, so I figured I’d make it easier for you:

  1. Open Pidgin plugins and scroll to “Libnotify Popups”
    Screenshot-Plugins
  2. Disable “Buddy signs on”
    Screenshot-Libnotify Popups

The plugin isn’t easy to find visually because it doesn’t use the word “notifications” at all.
