I just switched to openSuse 12.1 from Ubuntu.

Most of the transition has gone smoothly, except attempting to set up Pidgin for my company's Sametime service.

Pidgin 2.10.1-8.9.1 running under openSuse does not give me the option to add a Sametime account.

No amount of Googling has lead me to an explanation or work around...so..I ask...what gives?
