Pidgin on Linux with SIPE connect to Lync ... -on-linux/

Instructions for Ubuntu (using a precompiled deb I've uploaded):

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pidgin-developers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pidgin
wget ... 2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i pidgin-sipe_1.13.1-2_i386.deb

Once this is done you can then open pidgin, and add an "Office Communicator" account, using teh following settings:

First tab (Basic)
Login: email address
Username: email address
Password: password

Second tab (Advanced)
Server/port: blank
Connection Type: Auto
User Agent: UCCAPI/4.0.7577.314 OC/4.0.7577.314
Auth Scheme: TLS-DSK

Untick Use single sign on, leave everything below it blank

Ignore the other 2 tabs
