As of now there are still no pidgin specific instructions in freenodes
What seems to work for me, with 2.12.0:
- enable the irchelper.so plugin
- in the account settings for FreeNode, advanced tab:
disable SASL (extra work needed for it)
auth name: nickname used for NickServ
nick password: nickpassword used for NickServ
enable "Disconnect Ghosts"
auto-join channels: #chanA, #chanB
- in the global settings for auto-join chats:
disable auto-join during connect
enable "remain in channel if window is closed"
There is a race in the auto-join feature. IF the global one is used
channel join will happen before or while NickServ identification is
still in progress. Therefore each channel has to be configured in two
This race may be avoided with the usage of SASL. But its unclear how to
configure it, due to lack of pidgin specific instructions at freenode.net.
