With this plugin you should be able to replace your Microsoft Office Communicator client with Pidgin.

The source code and Windows installation packages are available on the download page. Various OS distributions offer installation packages under the name pidgin-sipe.

Installation instruction      Note:  When i was compiling from source Configure gave me this error:  “No package ‘libxml-2.0’ found”  if you are running debian system than you need to install “libxml2-dev” instead of libxml-2.0.
