    Kopete and Yahoo Messenger


    Hi Everyone
    I am using kopete for yahoo protocol. Every time i try to view someones webcam i get a message saying that "No Webcam Image Received". I've tried kopete in opensuse, kubuntu, arch, and mandriva, and i get the same message in all of them. I have jasper installed, i'm not aware of anything else thats needed. Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong and why i keep getting this message.
    Thanks in advance for you help

    The instant messengers in Linux right now are horrible. Best to use Windows for it or maybe try Yahoo Messenger in a VirtualBox setting and see if it works.

    Again, the problem is NOT linux, but yahoo which doesn't have a native linux app for its IM service. Fortunatelly, for yahoo, you have one option: Yahoo! Messenger for the Web, which needs flash plugin.

    Try to understand: kopete, as the vast majority of linux apps, are maintained by enthusiastic people which is doing the job without yahoo (or other company) support. Those guys will work for free when yahoo (or other company) makes changes on the IM protocol specs. So, please don't say "X or Y application sucks" just because didn't work, without take your time to investigate the real reasons.

    Peace
