    xchat is more IRC. Can you receive files using any other client, like Gaim, amsn or ymessenger (which ever you're using)?

    If you can send/receive files using one client but not the other, then it must be the client. I don't know enough about Kopete to be able to tell you where to change that setting.

    The only things that really bothers me about GAIM, is its unability to get attach to the "taskbar" if you, mistake, close it, it shutsdown... that the thing I like about KOPEte

    problem with kopete installation-newbie

    Hi to all
    I'm trying to install kopete 0.12.1. (mandriva 2006 power)
    After installing gcc & kde.. packages I finally get

    "You have disabled or you are missing required librairies required to compile Jabber Jingle voice support.
    Jingle is a new Jabber standard that define a signaling protocol via XMPP for peer-to-peer applications.
    Jingle audio is compatible with Google Talk voice offering.

    Required Jingle dependencies are listed on this page:
    http://wiki.kde.org/tiki-index.php?p...+Jabber+Jingle

    You're missing OpenSLP, or the OpenSLP devel package.
    Browsing in krfb and krdc will not be possible.
    If you want browsing support in krfb, you should consider
    installing it.
    Have a look at http://www.openslp.org/ or find a binary
    package for your platform.


    You're missing openSSL, or your version is too old (before 0.9.5a).
    krdc will not be compiled. If you want to use krdc, you should consider
    installing or upgrading it.
    Have a look at http://www.openssl.org, or find a binary package for
    your platform.


    You're missing libxml2, version 2.4.8 or newer, or the libxml2
    development package. Kopete will not be compiled.
    If you want to use Kopete, have a look at ftp://xmlsoft.org/ or find
    a binary package for your system.


    You're missing libxslt, version 1.0.7 or newer, or the libxslt
    development package. Kopete will not be compiled.
    If you want to use Kopete, have a look at ftp://xmlsoft.org/ or find
    a binary package for your system.


    You're missing the XMMS libraries, or the libxmms development package.
    Without libxmms Kopete's NowListening plugin won't be able to talk to
    the XMMS music player. If you want Kopete's NowListening plugin to
    support XMMS, have a look at http://www.xmms.org/ or find a
    binary package for your system.
    "
    If I want kopete to work perfectly, what have I to do?
