Problems with pidgin

Hi, 3 days ago I installed fedora cora 9 on mi laptop having no problems.

Pidgin was working fine,actually it still does, but before, when I place the mousse over a contact (msn contact) it used to tell me if that contact has me or not, but now it doesn't, can anyone help me? that was one of the things I love abotu pidgin.

Try running pidgin in a terminal (gnome-terminal, konsole, xterm) and posting the output when your using the software. This might make it easier to locate the problem.

Did you upgrade your distribution? or Pidgin itself?

Please provide more information about your situation.

thanks for the replies, actually i was using vista but i got sick of it so im using only fedora right now and i love it, pidgin was working great, no problems, fedora was getting updates and no problems with pidgin, and just today it stop showing me the 'has me or has me not application', I dont think there are libraries missing, but i will try running pidgin in terminal, and if it does not work i will re install it. Thanks guys, love this forum

Thanks for all the help, but I found another application called emesene that I like better.
