Unhappy Gaim


I can't use MSN with Gaim, he always says that I have a problem with the Protocols...

Who can help me?

Which version are you using and which protocols does it say you are missing? If you are using a version which came with your distro, then it's probably out of date.

Here is their homepage, they have just (a week ago) released a new version - grab that and see if it solves your problem.

Welcome to LQ.

Did you compile it with the mozilla nss libraries. The is required since the last round of MS updates.

Open a terminal. Use su to become root. Type in urpmi install mozilla-nss, if I remember rightly that is the command. When the install is complete, type exit to return to yourself. Then try a reinstall.

Not being a Gaim user, this may not be correct, but when it is open, click Help and then About and let us know what the version is.

The latest version is 0.75 - download and install that one, it may solve your problem.

Definitely grab 0.75. Then, the following URL should be helpful:
