Debian Multimedia :: AIM Error With Pidgin 2.6.5-2 From Squeeze?
Mar 1, 2010
On a fresh install of squeeze, I can't log in to an AIM account with being immediately disconnected and given this error: You have been connecting and disconnecting too frequently. Wait ten minutes and try again. If you continue to try, you will need to wait even longer.
I waited for several hours before trying to reconnect, but got the same message. Searching for the error led me to some bug reports from upwards of three years ago.
Strangely, this error hasn't occurred on any of my other squeeze systems.
I can ping login.oscar.aol.com as well as login.messaging.aol.com; both resolve to 22.214.171.124 for me. I tried changing the "Server" under "Advanced" to this address, but again I got the same error.
Previously after doing aptitude upgrade, my pidgin seems broken with no gui shown. So I decided to download the latest source from pidgin website and build it from source, but I think I made situation worse because it then complained that ssl lib was needed. Then I removed the libpurple (e.g. aptitude purge libpurple0 libpurple-bin libpurple-dev) and reinstalled pidgin (aptitude install pidgin). Now it shows the error
pidgin: symbol lookup error: pidgin: undefined symbol: purple_media_element_info_get_type
I searched on the internet and can not find a solution. The clues on the internet says that's because the piding I use is the older version of libpurple. But I think I've removed all with purge and reinstalled it. Maybe some legacy binary is referenced. What or where it might be? Or where there may contain related information.
I'm getting "Can't open display" all the time when I log in the server through ssh. penguin@theblue:~$ xeyes Error: Can't open display: laptop:0.0 penguin@theblue:~$ export DISPLAY=192.168.1.101:0.0 penguin@theblue:~$ echo $DISPLAY
The problem I found is sshd server set DISPLAY to localhost all the time.
I'm using Debian Squeeze, Pidgin 2.7.3.When starting pidgin my accounts seems to start but I see no contacts.Then I go to Accounts->Manage accounts and disable accounts, after enabling them again everything is fine. Every time I start Pidgin I get this problem, I have to disable/enable accounts to get my contacts on the list.
Recently, I fully upgraded my Lenny Desktop (to 5.0.4). Now I am unable to add yahoo and msn protocol in pidgin. I can't see those options in Pidgin>>Add Accounts dropdown. Several times I cleaned the old config files and reinstalled it. Still nothing to my avail
I just installed Debian on my main desktop and I'm having issues with Pidgin auto-connecting. I have three accounts enabled (2 AIM, 1 GTalk), but the problem occurs even if I only have one account enabled.If I explicitly enable (or disable then re-enable) an account it will connect without issue. However, when Pidgin is launched, or if network connectivity is interrupted, no accounts will connect. No matter what, it is always reporting the status as "Waiting for network connection.Google turned up several related issues from a few years ago, but nothing with an applicable solution today.
I'm running newest pidgin on sid and i have few problems. First of all notifications doesn't work (plugin is of course turned on), also even when i turn on blinking icon it's not blinking. Oh and why the tray icon is so small now?
I can't make sound work in Pidgin. I've tries every single method (aplay %s with Command, ALSA, Automatic etc.). Anyway, I once was hearing sounds, but later they've gone again. I have ALSA set up in 'System - Prefs - Sound' and also in 'Multimedia Systems Selector', Debian Testing (sid) 2.6.32-3-686. I also cannot set the tray icon to 'Blink On New Message'. When I recieve a message - I only see a smilie there, no 'blinking'.
how do i enable video support for pidgin?, or is it on by default?? because when i click a chat room from yahoo's list of rooms(that say people have web-cams)i don't see any options to view any of the webcams.
After upgrading to Squeeze, which comes with kernel 2.6.32, my system encountered DRM error and booted up with a blank screen. This happened intermittently. Searches on the Web did not give a definite answer. It seemed there was a bug in the kernel and this was cleared since 2.6.31 but I am using 2.6.32.
Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze
su apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring apt-get build-dep dwm exit
It all seems to work, however debuild gave an error about secret keys. Is this a sensible procedure? What happens in the (probably unlikely) event there is another source patch?I've gone to a tiling window manager as the result of the purchase of a wide screen LCD monitor. I like to have some stuff down the right hand side when running Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panes. Any configuration tricks welcome. Modern screens are the wrong shape!
I just got Squeeze loaded on computer and getting several error message during boot up. Something about 368623 and 368761 PCI Bar 6 collision. This is a first for me on Debian OS. It happens so fast I can barely write it down. Is there a log I can access to see the entire entry?
I just a newbie.i want to try customize my desktop.i found a website shown linux desktop very greatfull, like this :but i don't know how to start it.any expert guys please let me know the guiding for me to start this.
I want to install VGA driver on debian squeeze. my VGA is "Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller".I do not know which driver I must install for this VGA.Does Linux recognize related driver ?
I've just installed Squeeze 6.01a from the xfce iso image on an old PIII which has been running Lenny with xfce without any problems. It's a fresh install after a reformat.
Sounds and multimedia apps like gxine and mplayer all worked fine on Lenny and other older versions. Now they don't - not gxine, not mplayer not even VLC. Run from the menu they all abort - and if run in an xterm they all crash with the following message -
Assertion 'pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed at pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:108, function pa_mutex_unlock(). Aborting.
I try to update the packages before upgrade to wheezy,looks like when I run apt-get update,it shows error as per below:

I tried to install Debian-Squeeze 64-bit from CD [URL] as I thought mistakenly my cpu has 64 bit support. Ofcurse proccess stoped as the kernel wasn't compatible, but only when I removed the 'quiet' parameter I could see the error, when the 'quiet' parameter was passed, process gave no visible error,just stop in the start screen of debian-installer.
I have done a update from Lenny to Squeeze with the update manager within Gnome. And there was a error 126 and the update broke off leaving me with a non working system. The system does start into Debian Squeeze to the command line. Users are in place and a login is possible. X does not work and there a lot of broken and defect packages. I want to repair my system. Is a restore without losing the configuration possible?
