I create fork of this project https://github.com/MurzNN/kde4-krunner-pidgin with some improvements:
- Add full buddy info - full name and contact id together: Name
- Add info about buddy account: type and login, for see difference between same contact in different accounts.

Some unsolved problems:
- After click on contact new conversation opens normally, but conversation tab don't get focus - I can't find the way to set focus for conversation via DBus command
- After click on contact - Pidgin conversation window stay in background, I can't find command to move Pidgin conversation window in foreground.

If anybody can help with this - please reply.

Plugin works, open new tab with contacts, but don't activate chat window, so after clicking I must manually switch to chat window. Can you add command to activate chat window?

I can't find Pidgin internal dbus command to focus chat window, so I create this one-line command that do this:
wmctrl -lpx | grep Pidgin | grep -v Contact | cut -d' ' -f1 | xargs wmctrl -iR
