How to see users' Avatars in Pidgin on Knoppix 6.2
I've just installed Knoppix 6.2 en iso onto USB 8GB stick.
Pidgin that ships with it, does not show user avatars/pictures in my contact list.
(it does in Linux Mint just fine, so I know Pidgin can do it under Linux).
Nowhere is there a menu option in preferences or elsewhere to show those.
(or am I just too bugg-eyed from loking at a screen for too long?)
Whats more, I installed the optional extentions for added features, and I still can't find an option anywhere to make those pictures appear beside the names in my contact list.
Can someone please help me?
(without the command line stuff... I'm too new to Linux for that)
