View Full Version : Pidgin has a mind of its own

November 19th, 2008, 11:44 PM
For the past week and 5 days now, pidgin has been posting, sending, and shutting down all by it self. I have reloaded it 4 times and would work for a day or 2 and then go back to its own mind again. In my opinion, I think it might be a update or something

try reinstalling, and or deleting its config file. be sure to back up any logs if you want to save them before doing that though.

For me, it's like, Pidgin always tells me "message may have not been delivered due to X reason", yet the other person says it HAS been delivered properly.

Also: whenever I log in to MSN through Pidgin, it says "Unable to add user", in a pop up window.
Eh? what the hell man? why is that?

I've had that problem and never could find a solution. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

msn just sucks in general. I only get those problems (could not send message due to error in switchboard, random disconnects for no reason, many other problems) only with msn. I even get it with other clients including the offical microsoft one. So...its not just you.

Which ever version of Pidgin is currently up-to-date in Hardy's repos is still pretty buggy for me. It constantly freezes and closes randomly. I only use the AIM and MSN protocols if it matters. =]
