View Full Version : [ubuntu] Pidgin issue

May 27th, 2008, 08:18 PM
Hello, i have a little issue with the pidgin file transfer. Whenever a friend of mine is trying to send me a file via pidgin(he also uses pidgin) i don't get any sort of notification, while on the other end it says that i have accepted the file and start sending the file. Any ideas why i can't see/receive the file?

I have not used Pigdin yet, but is it possible its set to automatically receive the file and its just being downloaded somewhere in your home directory.

Are there any Pigdin settings related to file transfer?

i thought of that also but i could't find anywhere the file, and also can't see any settings about the possible location of the file, nor settings regarding the acception or rejection of the transfer

Go to Tools -> Plugins and make sure the Auto-accept plugin isn't active.

Checked and unchecked it but still nothing

I also am puzzled by this behavior. I've asked exhaustively in #pidgin on freenode, too, but nobody's given me any info.
