For some reason kopete does not see whether contacts are online. I was able to log into my account fine, and the contact list populated with all my contacts, but they all show offline or unknown status. If I fire up that old gaim on the same machine, it properly recognizes which users are online, with the exception of the user logged in with kopete on another machine. So it seems kopete has trouble setting its own status and receiving the staus of contacts.
ie. A is logged in with kopete on machine A, B with gaim on B, C with who cares on WDZ.
A cannot see that anyone is online.
B can see that C is online, but not that A is online.
I'm trying to get some kind of web conferencing going, and gaim doesn't seem to support this. Actually I don't think kopete does either, although it does support webcam. For simple IM both gaim and kopete seem fine.
