Pidgin issues (omega.contacts.msn.com)


Hello everyone,

I'm still fairly new to this Linux thing so please bear with me.

I've been having this problem where I get an error message pop up lately in regards to the "omega.contacts.msn.com" certificate and after running a search for it on google I found that a few people are having these issues as well.

I followed the directions I found on a few various sites where I delete the old certificate and export a new one into Pidgin and it worked.

However, it only works for a few hours before I start getting all the pop up windows again.

Does anyone know if there's a permanent fix for this?

The official fix
You have to download the 2 new intermediate certificates
then move them in /usr/share/purple/ca-certs
http://developer.pidgin.im/viewmtn/r...e1828b793ea187

the Omega cert that also works too.

Add file are the Certs, they also just released pidgin 2.7.7, so you might want to update first.
