    kopete 0.72 MSN issues


    I have installed kopete 0.72. I am running KDE 3.1.12.
    At this stage I am only interested in MSN so I selected that one.
    When I start Kopete from the command line , it opens up briefly and I see the icon in the system tray.

    When I click the icon it opens up and my MSN butterfly in the lower right corner is grayed out. The connect all button has a question mark in a purple circle on it . When I click this button my groups show up briefly and kopete quits and dissappear out of the tray.

    Any ideas? I have added the useragent option in the kopeterc file

    I started Kopete from the command line and opens up briefly. The following gets returned in my terminal:

    kopete: relocation error: kopete: undefined symbo l: _ZN13KNotifyClient5eventEiRK7QStringS2_

    I did not notice this yesterday

    cheers

    i think its because micrshaft alterd there network for "security" reasons but the only real affect was to stop linux clients connecting.

    _ZN13KNotifyClient5eventEiRK7QStringS2_

    notice the bit that says notify client.. well i hear that anyone useing the official msn cliet gets a window popping up constantly telling them to upgrade and it stops them from connecting. i beleive one of the other msn clients for linux has allready solved the problem or is at least working on it. i saw that in this forum actualy so have a look with the search option

    Not at all. According to the website that error was caused by the fact that the rpm were compliled on kde 3.1.1 and that I was running kde 3.1.0.

    this was not the case. I was running 3.1.2.

    Cheers
