Are you using GNOME? 
Comment 2 Ra P. 2007-07-04 11:25:06 EDT
Comment 3 Mark Doliner 2007-07-04 13:52:11 EDT
When Pidgin is running in GNOME it uses the proxy settings from GNOME.  You'll
have to configure them there.
Comment 4 Ra P. 2007-07-07 15:32:40 EDT
Is there no way to set Pidgin's proxy settings independently of other appolications?
Comment 5 Mark Doliner 2007-07-08 12:46:51 EDT
There is, but only if GNOME is not running.
Comment 6 Stu Tomlinson 2007-07-09 09:30:51 EDT
Actually you can always set per-account proxy settings whether running GNOME or
not - Accounts -> select account -> Edit Account -> Advanced -> Proxy type.
Comment 7 Stu Tomlinson 2008-02-09 13:55:07 EST
This isn't going to change.
