Hi, all

I am using Pidgin.
When friends try to send me photos from their MSN Messenger, it doesn't even show that they have tried to send me a file.
Is this a known problem, please?
If so, is there a fix, or wouuld I be better using a different messenger client.
There is no problem when friends send photos from Yahoo messenger.
Thanks, in advance.
Regards
Nifty

MSN Transfers using Pidgin not working (In both directions) is a known issue (http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/12990)
I do not know if Empathy (Default client for Ubuntu) nor if Kopete (Default client for Kubuntu) support it, though last time I tried Kopete, it worked. I think aMSN should also work as it focuses only on the MSN protocol.

Thanks for the reply. I think I may try Kopete.
