Ubuntu :: Empathy Jabber Breaks After Disconnecting
Apr 30, 2010
I was excited to use empathy in 10.04; however, both in the Beta and the Full Release I experience the following. (Note: I'm using 64 bit.)Setup 'Wizard' adds GTalk and Facebook Chat just fine.Manually add a IRC account (can't do that from wizard).Manually add a SIP account.Enjoy that it's working, and think that the full release fixed the bug.Disconnect
Then the next day.Set status as available.Get an ambiguous 'network-error' for GTalk and Facebook.Disable all accounts.Restart empathy, enable GTalk, get same error.Delete all accounts, restart system, go through account 'wizard', add GTalk, same error.Upgrade to dev version of Empathy, notice it's no longer in the nice messaging applet, but GTalk connects.Disconnect/Reconnect - same error.
Anyone else having this problem? Seems something is breaking with Jabber on Empathy. But I can't find any related information. I'll post logs when I boot into the 10.04 installation (which I was hoping to switch to, but not so sure right now.)
I'm on 10.04.I was curious to see the new features implemented (mainly geo-location) in Empathy, so I added their PPA and did an update. After updating, the notifications for Empathy become separated from the MeMenu (separate icons, no 'Chat' option is specified when I click the MeMenu), although I can still update my status by clicking on my user name.Does anyone know how to integrate the new Empathy back into MeMenu? If not, how can I roll back to the previous Empathy version that works with MeMenu?
Currently when the system boots, It boots jabberd2 before mysql. So jabber fails. Then, later mysql is loaded. I either want to force jabber to load mysql first, or make the system boot mysql first. I've tried changing /etc/init.d/jabberd2 to say "# Required-Start: mysql $network $named $remote_fs"... However, insserv says that mysql service has to be enabled... so I assume that's an issue because mysql is an upstart script.
I tried a Google search on "WOCKY_AUTH_ERROR_STREAM" and got zero results. That's right: ZERO! I suddenly feel like I'm using a Mac!
Again, my co-workers are able to connect (though I haven't spoken to any fellow ubuntu/empathy users as they are either on vacation or in the field with me and using their blackberry) but Spark (puke!) and IM+ work fine.
I'm running a small ejabberd server on a LAN. Everything works fine out of the box except that when certain users disconnect they remain listed as online. Specifically, Linux users who suspend their computers with their client still open are still listed as online. This is not the case for Windows or Mac clients. I did some research and fount out that it has something to do with the TCP keepalive timeouts on the server. However I cannot figure out how to set those times.
Strange problem with Kopete in Fedora 12. It works well with Google talk but does not work with Openfire - based jabber servers. Empathy works well with it so I think it is not SSL/TLS problem. Libs like qca, qca2 etc. are installed...
I have just updated to FC 13 (64 bit), and there seems to be a problem with Jabber in Kopete. I use this to connect to the google talk servers. In FC 12 this was not a problem. However, now I recieve a message "Cannot load the Jabber protocol plugin." when trying to add a Jabber account in kopete. This happens on two separate recently upgraded machines.
I suspect the kdenetwork package shipped with FC 13 is broken in this respect.
EDIT: Updating to the kde packages from the kde-testing repository fixes this, so it looks like the package is indeed broken.
The next problem I faced is that the Jabber-client sends messages but the recipients do not receive them.The server is Openfire 3.7.0. And our users use it without any problems.One user has Kubuntu 10.10. Pidgin 1:2.7.3-1ubuntu3.2. The connection passes well. The contact list loads well. The incoming messages are received well.But the messages which are sent to others - do not reach them.His Jabber-client is configured as others'. I tried Pidgin 1:2.7.3-1ubuntu3.2 (which is used in our company) and Gajim 0.13.4-1ubuntu1 .What can it be? And what should I do?I compared the openssl version on my computer and on problem computer. I have 0.9.8o-1ubuntu4.4. He had just 4. I upgraded his system. Now he has also 4.4. But the problem is still with us.
I've been trying to find out which jabber/XMPP clients out there automatically sign messages with openpgp you send but documentation on that has been spotty. Could you tell me a. if you know any clients that can easily sign and encrypt all outgoing messages and b. should I worry if a client is only able to sign presence and not messages?
I'm desperate after logging into Windows again (it's so crap ), but I really have no choice cause my internet keeps disconnecting on Ubuntu after a while. Right now I'm on 10.10 Beta but this problem occured on 10.04 LTS as well (that's why I upgraded, hoping it would stop). I had this problem in Windows 7 as well and managed to fix it by using some program similar to Driver Doctor that locates all the drivers you need and don't have yet. It turned out to be a driver for some Adapter back then.However, I'm not aware of any of these programs designed for Linux and I don't know myself what Adapter drivers I need. Also, back in the day when I was using Ubuntu 9.10 I didn't have problems with internet disconnecting all the time.
short version: My bluetooth headset keeps disconnecting.Full version:I'm using a 64-bit distro of 9.10 on a 1.6 GHz AMD Turion 64 laptop, with an external bluetooth dongle and a bluetooth headset. The dongle is recognized right off, the headset pairs perfectly through the bluetooth preferences panel, and sound redirects through the soundpreferences panel... For about 2 minutes. I know, it's odd, but every 2 minutes or so bluetooth disconnects from the headset. Sound shifts to the speakers, the applications don't miss a beat, and when I reconnect the headset through the bluetooth control it shifts right back to the headset. This happens regardless of other programs running. I tried it with no other applications running, and with a fairly heavy load, and it reoccurs.Here's the odd part: I had the CPU set on "Ondemand," to save battery power, but when I plugged in and shifted it to "Performance," it started happening ever 4 minutes or so...I've Googled around and found plenty about getting my headset to connect, but nothing about KEEPING it connected
We have a new EC2 instance which has Ubuntu OS. When I connect it through putty and start any process e.g.tomcat server, I can ping that server from my local machine and it works fine. But as soon as I disconnect through putty, that server goes down. Even, I tried to run it as a background process (using &) but did not work.
I never had this problem with Ubuntu before and I am now confused. This is a clean install and I have not change anything about my AP so don't why this is happening.
Every 5min or so my wifi keeps disconnecting and sometimes have problems reconnecting. I also have Windows on this machine and it does not do this at all. My AP is set to channel 9(changing it makes no difference), WPA2. Logs below

I have recently purchased a cellular usb modem, a ZTE MF637. To my surprise and pleasure the device worked (almost) out of the box (almost, because I had to supply a user name and password to the wireless broadband connection properties).
Anyway, the problem is, that the connection work fine, but only for 20 minutes or so (I did not actually measure it), then I experience 0 network activity, and shortly after that the connection drops, and the device is no longer recognized as wireless broadband.
What I do is remove the device, replug it, and after a minute it reconnects. until the next drop.
I'm using Lucid on an Asus eee 1101HA.
Oh, one more thing, in lsusb, the device is listed as MF636, but the box reads MF637. I don't know if it matters, but there it is.
I have always had trouble in the past getting wireless adapters and what not to start working on Ubuntu but with each 6-month upgrade most problems are fixed while new ones are made. Since Ubuntu 10.10 just came out I thought I'd give it a go and test it with my hardware.
Before 10.10 Ubuntu could not connect with my wireless device and I had to do many things with gedit and such to get it working. After I have upgraded to 10.10 Ubuntu now recognizes my wireless device and network and I can search the web...but wait here it comes.
Literally minutes after a fresh install and first connection to my network my wireless signal will drop and prompt me to reconnect. Of course the first thing comes to mind I reconnect which doesn't work so I unplug the device and replug it making it works...Two minutes later my connection drops again and so I so reboot, and if you really want to know what happens next just restart this paragraph.

I am using ubuntu 10.10 server amd64. And i am using IDJC for online radio. My problem is jackd connections disconnect after one night. Because of that my radio stream disconnects. There is nothing wrong with idjc's settings.
i have this problem,i disconnected the linux drive because the pc couldnt recognize my wireless modem at the grub stage so ubuntu started (i have dualboot with windows) but logitech's drivers for it are on windows, so i disconnected by removing SATA cable and it logged into windows! after that my keyboard was alive again i tried to restart and log in to ubuntu but no GRUB!! (you may understand that i have some problems with my wireless stuff but thats another thing ) so how do i reinstall grub!

i installed ubuntu 10.10 remix netbook edition on hp mini 110 last day. my wifi is working fine its connecting every network only problem is it cant keep its connection constant, i mean it keep disconnecting frequently. once it disconnect i tried to connect again but it connects but i can not surf internet.
Im having some problems with the wireless too. I have an Acer Aspire 5050 laptop with the latest version of ubuntu on it. I have a wireless modem and every time I go to connect to the internet the wireless connections keep conflicting againts each other and then I get disconnect every 30 mins and when I try to connect again it just keeps disconnecting, at first when I installed ubuntu it couldn't find the wireless network until I created one and now it seems to find all connects around the area but when I go to connect to mine it just keeps connecting and Disconnecting.
I have a Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 (as it came from the factory, no mods), a Linksys WRT54G router, and Ubuntu 9.10/Karmic with all updates. I've had issues since I upgraded from 9.04/Jaunty to 9.10/Karmic. It did work for awhile (I think a few days), but then it suddenly just couldn't find our wireless network. I reformatted (with 9.10) thinking it had just been a bad install - now I can connect to our network, but it throws me off every two minutes. My roommate (Dell laptop, Vista) has no problems with the internet, and I've visited a friend (in another state) and used her wireless internet without issues (though I couldn't tell you which router they were using). I've gone into our router's settings (with both my laptop and my roommate's) to reset the router or change the security settings, but with no real progress.
I'm currently using putty on my laptop to control my headless server (both Ubuntu 8.04.) I'm running an rsync job that ran all night long and still going all day today so far. I need to restart my laptop, but if I do, I'll break the SSH connection. If I SSH back in, I won't see the same thing (rsync is showing me each file it's copying) that I'm seeing now. (At least I think that's true. Please correct me if I'm wrong.)
So I guess my questions are..Is there some way to restore my SSH session when reconnecting? (So I can resume seeing which file is being copied and - more importantly - when the rsync job (finally) finishes?If not, how else can I know when the rsync job finishes?
I updated Kubuntu from 8.10 to 9.04. After the update, I saw a problem with VPN connections. I am using an mac pro with 2 ethernet ports. Only one of them is connected to switch. I am using a static IP in my local network. The problem is that I lose dns information after connecting and disconnecting to a VPN by KVpns.As I am using static ip, I entered my dns server to resolv.conf file with "nameserver 192.168.128.4". My interfaces file is as follows:
Brand new to linux/ubuntu..Just downloaded the most recent version. Well when i try to connect to my network....it connects...then about 2 min later it disconnects and i have to unplug and replug my adapter.
