    right. well thanks for trying. i tryed kopete and it didn't work either. i'm confused by how it seems like it doesn't even try to sign on, like it already knows my password.

    when i try to connect, this is what it says:

    Kopete is unable to attempt to sign-on to the AIM network because no password was specified in the preferences.
