    I am new to whonix and just recently added pidgin. I was wondering if pidgin has to be configured to run properly to run with tor or will it automatically be pushed through tor since i am running whonix. When adding a new account to pidgin there is the Proxy Setting category ( No Proxy, Socks 4, socks5, tor/privacy socks5, etc..) Do i have to set it to a specific setting or just use the global option?
