    icq recently changed their protocol which caused pidgin to stop working. there is an update available now.
    running
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade
    should bring your system up to date.

    there is also a somewhat unclean fix here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5308651

    here is another thread about this issue: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=846279

    hope that helps!

    if it's not a icq problem this fix won't help.
    can you be more specific on the error message?
