Happened to me with AIM, XMPP, Skype accounts. Thanks for the workaround.nimbvs wrote:After the Pidgin update to v. 2.10.0, I too can't connect and it says "Waiting for network connection". If I disable and then re-enable the accounts they connect. You can run pidgin with the --force parameter and it will connect fine.
- Code: Select all
$ pidgin -f
There's also Debian bug #642117 reported about this issue.
It seems this is happening because Pidgin 2.10 doesn't work well with network-manager < 0.9 (in testing there's still network-manager 0.8.4, which I also have installed).
So all we have to do is patiently wait for the new network-manager to land in testing (or force an install from unstable, which I won't do just yet).

The function keys didn't work to turn it off and on, but never have in Linux, been using the network manger icon for on/off but that didn't work until I did the reset it Win7, now eveything is working.
Not a Linux fix, but all is fair in love and war.

What could be the reason pks are kept back in LMDE but not in Debian?
