Fedora :: Pidgin And Empathy Not Signing Into Msn?

Jan 18, 2010

Recently jumped from Ubuntu to Fedora 12 over the weekend, has been quite the bumpy ride. Though fun of course. But I'm having trouble coming to a solution for this problem, that started today. When signing into both Empathy or Pidgin (only with msn account) they both just hang on the white screen inactive... I say "inactive" the program hasn't frozen I just cannot be signed in. Also, in Pidgin at the bottom, next to where it shows your status, it has;

"Available - Waiting for network connection"

Fedora :: Can't Connect To MSN In Pidgin An Empathy

Aug 3, 2010

This is been going on all day. No MSN in Pidgin, and MSN on and off in Empathy. As always, I suspect Microsoft has something to do with this and wish I didn't need to use MSN. On the other hand, a laptop sitting next to me with Ubuntu connects with no problem.

Fedora :: How To Import Pidgin Accounts / Data Into Empathy

Jun 2, 2010

I've installed Fedora 13 and would like to find a way to import my pidgin accounts, data, and logs into empathy. The Empathy FAQ doesn't mention this, there's nothing in the Empathy help about it, and I've gone through every menu looking for anything like an "import" option and come up empty. I tried asking on irc.gimp.org#empathy but got no response there. I'm guessing that means there's no built-in upgrade path. But maybe somebody has a script that will do it? Or worst case, maybe someone could point me to instructions on how to manually convert the data?

Ubuntu :: AIM Won't Work Others Will On Empathy And Pidgin

Mar 19, 2010

Hello, when I log into Aim using pidgin I get this error

"Received unexpected response from http://api.oscar.aol.com/aim/startOSCARSession"

I tried using a MSN account to test it out and it works. So AIM does not work. The port is on 5190 so I dont understand what is wrong.

Ubuntu :: No Yahoo In Either Pidgin Or Empathy?

Jun 22, 2010

i recently lost access to yahoo IM on 2 different computers (one 32-bit and one 64-bit) on both empathy and pidgin. it happened at around the same time on 2 separate machines on 2 separate networks. both gmail and msn will connect using both clients - it's only yahoo that will not connect and i've tried 2 different yahoo accounts, too...

i can still log into yahoo IM on a windows virtual machine and through the web messenger - just not using the ubuntu clients.

could there have been a recent update that may have caused this? i've also heard that yahoo in the past has changed around servers and put in measures to limit usages strictly to yahoo clients.

Ubuntu :: Pidgin - AMSN And Empathy Won't Connect

Feb 10, 2010

Neither pidgin, aMSN, nor empathy will connect to my hotmail account, pidgin connects to xfire and gmail fine, but not to my hotmail, so i have to use ebuddy, which i don't like. The weird thing is that for a period of time it won't connect, then it works again (aMSN and empathy too) and after a while it'll stop working again. Also my buddies in hotmail usually see me offline, even though my status is set to online.

aMSN gives me: "error connecting to server" pidgin gives me: "Connection error from Notification server: Reading error"

Ubuntu :: Can't Connect To Yahoo In Empathy Or Pidgin

Nov 21, 2010

As of today I am unable to connect to Yahoo messenger in either Empathy or Pidgin. Empathy gives its generic "network error" and Pidgin says the account is disabled, and fails to connect when I click "re-enable." I've checked the obvious things such as username and password. I was able to connect through the web messenger so my credentials are good. Also tried swapping the server with the IP address and changing the character encoding as recommended here.

Ubuntu :: GTalk Works In Browser But Not In Empathy - Pidgin / Fix It?

Aug 17, 2011

This is my first post and I'm just starting to use Ubuntu again. I currently have 11.04 installed. So my friend and I are trying to voice chat using Google Talk. He is using Windows XP and is going through his web browser. If I use Empathy or Pidgin I can call him and he can hear me speak but I can't hear him. When he calls me, I get no notification from Pidgin, and from Empathy it rings and when I pick up I get nothing. It works perfectly fine for both of us if I also go through my browser. Hopefully someone can help with this or perhaps have another voice chat client we could use? For example, MSN is suppose to work with Empathy. If so, would we have fewer problems using that?

On a side note I always wanted to know when you guys give terminal commands on here do you have them memorized or do you copy and paste?! I'm such a noob when it comes to Linux and can't count the times Ubuntu has made me feel so dumb!

Fedora :: How To Boot Up Without Signing In

Jul 2, 2010

I have had to ditch ubuntu after 4 happy years as their 10.04 release was crazily resource hungry on my humble machine. Installed F13 smoothly and without any problems and so far it doesn't appear to be as resource hungry as ubuntu. One thing I have not been able to find in either gnome preferences or administration is where to set it to go straight to desktop without messing around with passwords and stuff.

Fedora :: Flash Plugin Signing Key - Cannot Update

(The Help for this window says I can go to the adobe website to confirm details of the signing key, which I will do if there is not a simpler fix.) If I respond in affirmative to the first window I get the failure window, second shot, with traceback.

Server :: Signing Up To The Amazon EC2 Service With EBS?

Jan 9, 2011

I am interested in signing up to the Amazon EC2 service with EBS. I have never used a unmanaged vps before, but I know how to use the command line etc. There are some basic packs on there to use, with basic LAMP stacks. But I would like to ask about how do I:

Upgrade a lamp stack? - someone mentioned yum, but what is this? how easy is it to use? is it enough? secure the lamp stack? - assuming I have no idea of linux security, can you give me a list or something of things I need to consider so I can begin the search (or just cover the steps would be awesome!) My website just uses php and mysql, so thats all i'll need. If you have any other tips on this,

Debian :: Creating Certificate Signing Request - CSR?

Jun 9, 2015

I need to renew my SSL cert for my Mahara site and I follow the instructions below. But after I finish answering all the questions for the csr, I'm supposed to copy a portion of the cert into a web form. However I can't seem to find the server.csr so I can do this. Were this file goes?

Here is a step-by-step description:

Make sure OpenSSL is installed and in your PATH.

Create a RSA private key for your Apache server (will be Triple-DES encrypted and PEM formatted):

$ openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024

Please backup this server.key file and the pass-phrase you entered in a secure location. You can see the details of this RSA private key by using the command:

$ openssl rsa -noout -text -in server.key

If necessary, you can also create a decrypted PEM version (not recommended) of this RSA private key with:

$ openssl rsa -in server.key -out server.key.unsecure

Create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) with the server RSA private key (output will be PEM formatted):

$ openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr

Make sure you enter the FQDN ("Fully Qualified Domain Name") of the server when OpenSSL prompts you for the "CommonName", i.e. when you generate a CSR for a website which will be later accessed via https://www.foo.dom/, enter "www.foo.dom" here. You can see the details of this CSR by using:

$ openssl req -noout -text -in server.csr

Debian Multimedia :: Pidgin: Symbol Lookup Error: Pidgin: Undefined Symbol: Purple_media_element_info_get_type

Aug 1, 2010

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.
