View Full Version : [ubuntu] Pidgin - keeps logging me out

May 24th, 2010, 11:23 PM
Using Lucid... and Pidgin 2.6.6.

Pidgin keeps logging me out after a while, with a message on it's screen saying something like "you have been logged out because you logged in under another application" or something like that.

Only problem is, I didn't log in anywhere. I have:
- made sure to not connect to yahoo anywhere else (it's my Yahoo acnt that keeps doing this)
- removed my account and reestablished it

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

if you enable yahoo chat in your yahoo mail inbox then it will log you out of Pidgin or Empathy when you visit their website.

Yeah but I have avoided Yahoo sites specifically.. unless some site is using their API coding and that does it.

For some reason the same happens to me when I try to change status with the MeMenu
