Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I would like to know how to add my Stack Overflow chat account to the Pidgin Instant Messenger client.

Could you share your ideas?

Consider using the web client. I usually hate web-based chats but the SO chat is extremely awesome. – ThiefMaster Mar 7 '13 at 12:38

You can't, not without external software that creates a bridge.

See this project to create a IRC bridge as a starting point if you want to build one yourself. Or try and help out with the XMPP bridge for a different angle to the problem.
