Restoring all the settings in Pidgin…

Pidgin is also hard to loose. I use pidgin for chatting on MSN, ICQ and IRC as well as Facebook. Finding the login information wouldn’t be to hard but getting all the chatlogs back is important to me.
My first idea was to find the .pidgin folder and just move that. Didn’t work. No folder as such existed. I then remembered that Pidgin used to be GAIM and found a .gaim folder that I did move.
Worked just beautifully, sortof.. I ended up with only one account, which seemed odd. After some googling I found out that the folders name is .purple. Purple as in Pidgin maybe? I dunno, but with that folder moved to /home/user everything worked flawlessly.
