Could you describe it a bit more detailed
I'm always thinking of internet problems in cases like this

well.. it doesnt happen very often, but when it does, it can be very annoying.

in the middle of a convo ... i type a sentence, and it doesn't get sent.. pidgin tells me: this messege cannot be sent. so i try to write/send it again.. and again.. keep getting the same message. then without no reason, everything goes back to normal.

if it happens again Husse, i'll print screen and post it here to show you.

thanks :)

speaking of Pidgin

i noticed my version is 2.4.1

and the one available on the pidgin.im side is 2.5.1

would that affect anything?

should i download it? or wait for a mint update release

hiii husse,

I get a message that says: Message Could not be sent due to a connection error.

does that make any sense to you?

On rare occasions, I can get that type message. From what I can gather, there are numerous different connections that must be made between "here" and "there" for my IM to go to the other end. If any of those connections goes down, I can get that type error.

I have one friend who is listed on AIM, Yahoo, and Jabber/XMPP. His different screen names might sign on and off at odd times, so that is how we figure there are so many contributing factors for connections. Whether this has any relation to your current problem or not, it is something to ponder.

On a side note, in all of our testing, Jabber/XMPP has been the most reliable IM connection, with AIM coming in second.

Let me know what you find with pigeon.

I'm also using a home network with 5 computers, and have installed and using with some success a program called qchat, which is not an Internet chat program, but an inter-LAN chat program for instant messaging between computers on the LAN.

interesting!! how is Qchat? do you recommend it? wb53tx.

well, to update you on my pidgin problem.. turns out maybe one of my friends on the list was having problems with his wireless, connecting and disconnecting. (you see with Msn LIve messenger, the messages would be sent as offline messages)

but with pidgin.. i dont think that option is available.
