PIdgin "Waiting for network connection" yet conn is ready

Postby mindmint on Tue Jun 07, 2011 1:54 am

Bug report.
I have to disable the account and then re-enable it to get online. For each account.

PS: I found that after a long amount of time, or maybe in certain conditions it connects eventually. (I'm using Xfce.)

I'm experiencing this as well, on LMDE with GNOME 3. Before installing GNOME 3, Pidgin worked fine, and it also works fine in Mint 11 'Katya', so unfortunately I have no idea why it happens or how to fix it.

I'll admit, I didn't know about disabling and re-enabling the accounts being a valid workaround for the problem though, never thought to try that... I'll thank you for that, but it is only a workaround and not exactly ideal...

My current workaround for this is compiling pidgin without network-manager support.
The following in a terminal should work:
Code: Select all
apt-get source pidgin
sudo apt-get build-dep pidgin
cd pidgin-2.10.0
gedit debian/rules

replace all instances of "enable-nm" with "disable-nm" and save. Finally,
Code: Select all
debuild

and wait 5-10 minutes and you should have pidgin built up. To install:
Code: Select all
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i pidgin_2.10.0-1_amd64.deb pidgin-data_2.10.0-1_all.deb


I hope it works for you too.
