    Best IM for LXDE?

    Hi, all
    I have just gone back to Lubuntu after experiementing with OpenSuse and Fedora.
    My dilemma is this: I can´t seem to get photo sharing to work in Pidgin, which I understand is a known issue. However, using Kopete works, but seems to use so much system resources that it defeats the object of using Lubuntu rather than another Ubuntu flavour.
    I only use Yahoo and MSN accounts.
    Does anyone have any suggestions, please?

    Regards
    David

    Re: Best IM for Lubuntu?

    Hi, all
    Posted this a while ago, got no answers.
    Can anyone recommend an IM client that works with picture sharing?
    Kopete works, but is system hungry in Lubuntu.
    Pidgin doesn´t seem to work very well in this respect
    Kind regards
    David

    Re: Best IM for LXDE- no answers?

    Hi, all
    I am trying to find an IM program that supports photo sharing, other than Kopete, which seems to slow down Lubuntu.
    I love Lubuntu for its speed and simplicity.
    Does anyone have a suggestion, please?
    Regards

    Alternative to Pidgin and Kopete?

    Hi, all
    I have posted elsewhere and got no answer, so have posted this in the hope of help.
    I can´t receive photos in Pidgin from MSN, which I gather is a known issue.
    Kopete works, but brings in so much of KDE that it defeats the object of using LXDE.
    Does anyone have suggestions, please?

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply. As I understand it, isn Skype really for phone use, rather than instant messaging?

    Regards

    There is a list of IM clients at the link but some listed use Gnome libraries. http://www.linuxlinks.com/article/20...Messaging.html

    With the Skype 4.1 you can merge with your MSN account and you can chat and make video calls with your msn/skype contacts.
