Angry Kopete X Msn Messenger


Suddenly Kopete begins give a password error when I try to login in the MSN MESSENGER network.

Do somebody knows if the redmont people has participation in this problem? Did they put any blocking wall for Kopete's logins?

I don't think it's a protocol change because I can still log in with gaim.

I've been having the exact same problem for the past few days... just can't log into my MSN messenger account via Kopete 0.10 (KDE 3.4). It gives me the "wrong password" error even though I swear I type in the correct password every freakin' time.

MSN... evil... evil...

Looks like it was Microsoft that did it again. From Kopete's official site:

http://kopete.kde.org/index.php?page=index

Quote:
A change was made to the MSN servers a few days ago which prompted Kopete to display "wrong password" errors when attempting to connect to the MSN service. The problem has been fixed and you will need to recompile Kopete from KDE's subversion repository to get the fix. The fix will be in KDE 3.4.1 which is planned for release within the next three weeks.
I'll try to get the fix and recompile Kopete today. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Big troubles ahead!

I'm a Linux novice... I've no idea from where I get the source to recompile. What directories will be involved. What compiler I must have...
I've Lazarus Compiler(A free pascal based clone of Borland's Delphi) and Sun Netbeans 4.0(an IDE for java development) in my machine...
I think none of these compilers will help me...

I have no idea what is cvn... And so on...

Is there in some place a step-by-step explanation what to do?

The fix available now is the development version. The official release will follow in a few weeks, when the fix will be available to the users (like you and me). They simply assume that those who would like to test the fix now are the developers and/or hardcore users who know what svn is and how to use it to download the source, etc.

From what I've gathered, svn is a source control system program that lets you connect to the online source file repositories and check out the latest source files. KDE tells you how to use svn to grab the latest Kopete source from their repository. Running "make" is a standard program compilation process on UNIX/Linux. In order to compile Kopete, you will at least need the Qt library and the GCC compiler on your system.

It's a follow-up. Looks like Kopete has released a fixed version both for KDE 3.2 and 3.3/3.4. The source files are available here:

http://kopete.kde.org/index.php?page=downloads

I downloaded and compiled version 0.10.1 on KDE 3.4. It seems to have fixed the problem.

Way to go!

I downloaded the Kopete 0.10.1 and tried to install it. It says lselinux not found. But my previous kopete 0.8.* was working fine. So what could be the problem?

And how is it kopete problem related with KDE version? After all KDE is just a desktop manager.

Btw, there are no files in kopete website for KDE 3.2 that fixes "that" problem.

The download page I quoted above does have the source file for Kopete 0.9.3, which they say is compatible with KDE 3.2. It's not the KDE version that's causing the problem; The latest version of Kopete (0.10.x) does not work with KDE 3.2, so they backported the fix to the version that does (i.e. 0.9.x).
