if it's working, then right after you successfully login, you'll be
asked for a passphrase.
first, in your ~/.tkabber/config.tcl file you need this line at the
beginning of the file:
    set ssj::options(sign-traffic)    1
if you have this line already and you're not getting the prompt, then
one of two things is happening:
1. you have $GPG_AGENT_INFO set and whatever that program is doing, it's
not prompting you for a passphrase. (or maybe it is and everything is
working fine.)
2. tcl can't find the gpgme package. try this:
    % tclsh
    tclsh> package require gpgme
you should see
if you see something else, then gpgme isn't installed correctly. if this
is the case, then tkabber will output a debugging message telling you that.

first, make sure that tcl can find Tk_Theme
    % tclsh
    tclsh> package require Tk_Theme
second, make sure you are using a "current" version of
plugins/unix/dockingtray.tcl. on my version, it says
