Please try this (Tested in Ubuntu 12.10)
sudo gedit '/usr/share/applications/pidgin.desktop'
Change the line:
> Exec=pidgin -f
If you've created any shortcuts elsewhere, you will want to make this same
change on those files. They are usually ".desktop" file extensions.
Or, alternately, you can create a file in /usr/sbin called "pidgin". Use
this method with extreme care:
sudo gedit /usr/sbin/pidgin
> echo "Starting pidgin -f..."
> /usr/bin/pidgin -f $@ &
> exit 0
Make the file executable:
> sudo chmod +x /usr/sbin/pidgin
Now all calls to "pidgin" *should* use your newly modified version. Test
this by launching it from the command line, and you should receive a
message "Starting pidgin -f". Modify to your needs.
