Ubuntu :: Local Chat Using Pidgin

Sep 1, 2011

Im wondering if its possible to set up a local network chat client on my work computers, they run redhat enterprise and they have pidgin installed on them. Is there a way to setup pidgin to be able to chat with other clients on a local network but not over the internet because the computers are not hooked up to an internet connection. I expect there is a way to do this but couldnt figure it out.alternatively if there is a command line utility that can do this i would be interested to know more,

Software :: Can't Open Pidgin's Chat Window

Feb 4, 2010

I get a problem when I try to connect to jabber chatroom. I tried to join a chat room in the following way: "Buddies > Add chat...", set the name of existing room (it exactly exists), server and group to what I want to add new chat in my contact list. The room isn't protected by password, therefore I didn't set password. New contact was added to my contact list. But when I try to open chat's window by doubleclick on this contact nothing happens. I also don't watch any error messages in pidgin's debug window while I'm trying to open chat window. Attempt to click on "Join" in contact's context menu or join a chat by "Buddies > Join a chat room..." also don't yield results. I use pidgin v.2.6.1 on Slackware 12.2. What's wrong?

Ubuntu :: Broke Chat Client - Reset Any Empathy Settings?

May 6, 2010

1. My status selection has disappeared from the contacts menu (See #1 on picture). This lead me to a desperate search on how to delete/reset any config files for empathy. Tried to complete-remove and then reinstall it. This though didn't remove the settings or repair the glitch but instead led me to my second problem.

2. After reinstallation, this redundant little notification icon appeared (See #2 on picture). Cute... now how do i get rid of it? how to reset any empathy settings (problem one would at least solve then... I would presumably think?

Aug 16, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Acer laptop last night. I wasn't able to surf the net at first but after searching these forums, managed to get it right (changed setting in firefox).

My current problem is that while I can surf the net and download updates etc, I can't seem to get email and chat working, it just gives a timeout error for some reason.

Ubuntu :: Making Pidgin Main Client 10.04?

May 7, 2010

I am not 100% happy with empathy like I was with Pidgin. I am, however very happy with the indicator applet that sits next to the clock. My question is, how do I go about setting this system so that instead of 'chat' loading Empathy, it recognises that as Pidgin instead?

OpenSUSE :: Empathy Chat Client - Got Some Errors That Need Addressing!?

Sep 9, 2010

I've got a problem occurring with my openSUSE 11.3 // GNOME Empathy Chat Client. When I try to connect to my Facebook account, my client tells me that I have a Network Error. Last time I used the client at home, it worked perfectly fine, but when I'm at work it doesn't.

Now, you guys may say that my work's network may have ports blocked, or the firewall is blocking its use in some way, but I find that hard to believe. My reasoning? I am able to connect to my Facebook account thru Empathy at work on my previous Ubuntu 10.04 system with no problems. I have also been connected to the same chat accounts this whole week on my openSUSE 11.3 // KDE 4.4 Kopete chat client.My Empathy connects to my Skype with no problem also. So, do any of you have any ideas that could possibly solve my issue? I love being connected to my Facebook chat at work because I don't see anyone nearly as often, and it's a great way for me to keep in touch with them.

Aug 1, 2011

I am trying to write a chat program with sockets as part of my project.

But the problem facing is first client is able to sent messages to every other client formed after that.But second client onwards it is not able to sent message to previously connected ones. Server is not able to write on those client id's.

Ubuntu :: Chat / IM Client That Has Email-actions And Auto-login (Trillian-like)?

Jun 30, 2011

I've been using Trillian under Windoz, for one reason only - the email message-handling is amazing. Here are the features that impressed me the most with Trillian:

Check multiple email accounts + notifications (but that exists in many other clients)
Preview subject line + message body teaser (this exists to some extent in Adium)
Preview the above not only upon email-check, but in the client window itself or as tooltips when hovering over email-account name Email ACTIONS - right-clicking on individual messages, can perform common tasks (archive, delete, view, mark as read).

The actions available change for different protocols AUTO LOGIN-when double-clicking the account a browser window will open and automatically log me into the account That last feature is the most important one - at the moment, Pidgin/Adium/Empathy just send me to the email-account's homepage. I have (too) many email accounts, and having to enter login details to each is a pain. With Trillian, I could d-click an account, see my inbox, logout and then d-click another account - and be logged into that one... easy peasy.

Now, this is not a commercial for Trillian... really not. I just haven't found any other client that can do these things, nor have I found plugins for Empathy/Pidgin that enable this. I've been using Pidgin for now, cos it doesn't give any trouble with Skype integration (already tried the skype4empathyandpidgin, didn't work out) and has nice (not amazing) integration to the messaging menu.

Ubuntu :: How To Install QuickCam Chat

Sep 28, 2010

I have (finally) been able to install Skype. I have a QuickCam Chat (M/N v-uap42) and I have the installation disk for windows with all the drivers on it. I have converted my machine to Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. It has an Intel Celeron M processor.

All of the explanations I'm finding are telling me to put stuff in the terminal window with the assumption that I know what they're talking about it. I don't know what a kernel is or does or how to find out which one I have. I don't know what a tar is or does or how to find one. I'm looking for a simple 'for dummies' type of explanation on how I can get my webcam to work. Any suggestions?
