I was having this same issue, I was starting Pidgin as a daemon and it kept asking for root password even though I was using sudo. The reason for this is that it was saving all the accounts that it generated in the system. Here is the fix for it. Click to expand... This is pretty irritating. I know they fixed this in the 3.0.4 release as it seems that accounts saved in the system is one of the issues. But the final fix is to use: Click to expand... /usr/libexec/Pidgin/pidgin-debug-mask & to start pidgin if you need to: Click to expand... I actually ran into this and I was thinking that this would probably fixed it, but it didn't.

I have Pidgin 2.10.4, Gnome 2.24.2, and I use an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400 (2.4 GHz, same kind of machine as the two previous suggestions here, except mine has 8 GB of RAM). If I use one or two accounts with no space or theme options set, pidgin works perfectly.
