Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a few questions i wasn't able to answer for myself:
1) Where does the kopete history plugin make it's saves, where can I find the files?
2) Has anyone managed to make the kopete file transfer work? Today i've tried to receive a file from a windows box using yahoo messenger 8.0 and after choosing the path to save the file to I received and error that kinda said that the user sending the file cancelled the transfer.
PS: Does pidgin support the above functions (i've never used).
I've run kopete from terminal and when somebody with a win box tried to send me something I accepted and the error appeared once more.
Transfer ACCEPTED by: FileTransferNotifierTask
Transfer ACCEPTED by: MessageReceiverTask
Transfer ACCEPTED by: MessageReceiverTask
Transfer ACCEPTED by: ReceiveFileTask
CLIENT: ReceiveFileTask: Task::done()
CLIENT: ReceiveFileTask: emitting finished
Things happened instantaneously. Upon asking him what his client says, he replied: it appears we have initiated file transfer, but the progress bar remained empty.
file transfer in kopete does not progress (msn protocol?)
Hi, I am also having the same issue of not being able to receive or send files in Kopete 0.12.3. My girlfriend also uses the same Kopete version and the same Debian etch. We both have hotmail email accounts, and we login with Kopete and chat, but when i send a file, my girlfriend sees the incoming file but tells me the progress bar never goes further than zero, which i also see from my side by the way. So, this problem is not only for Yahoo protocol, but for MSN protocol as well? The possibility remains that the problem is caused by Kopete itself?
Don't know how to solve this issue and although it is not critical, I would really love to see this thing working.

UPDATE: I decided to do a simple test. I send a file from one of my yahoo account to a second yahoo account (both users loged in from the same computer, same desktop KDE, so I have both kopete windows open for each user and indee i can send files back and forth from either user. So, corrrecting: Kopete has no problem with the Yahoo protocol. Then the problem to send files to my girlfriend in another city is perhaps the ISP has a firewall that blocks? Yet, my girlfriend does acknowledge the imminent arrival of the file but it never reaches her though. So it is still a mistery to me. Any ideas please? Thanks.
Hi, has anyone managed to figure this out yet?
Im using the kopete fro kde4 and cannot send files at all, and it doesnt matter if the firewall is dissabled. I havent tried opening my router though.
One strange thing is that the kopete from kde3 works just fine with router and firewall, so why doesnt the kde4 kopete?
Seems like a bug in kopete that has been around since the start of kde4 and its still not fixed. Its a bit aggravating because there seems to be virtually no info about this on google. Am I one of the only few that try to send files to people I chat with?
So why does kopete kde3 work, and kopete kde4 not?
I believe there are a whole series of mysteries here. I have pretty much given up trying to use Kopete. It works on some routers (usually wireless) and not others. Oddly, it works on routers I administer, and not on those I don't. It would seem obvious from that that I have opened some port, but I haven't, I swear, since I don't know what Kopete needs/uses. As I say, above, I have gone over to just using Meebo.com in Firefox for chatting, since it gets out on port 80 just fine.
I do know this is not a (localhost) firewall issue, since turning off the f/w has no effect ( and besides, is on when it does work!)
Like the others posting to this thread, I find it odd that there is not more about this on the web..
