Pidgin not opening after last update

Postby durkhrod chogori on Fri Feb 22, 2008 2:53 am

I am using Daryna version of Mint and after the last update can't start the program.

Any ideas about fixing this glitch.

Regards.

first things first, open a terminal and try to launch pidgin manually. What does it come back with?

Gee, you were quicker. I was going to post saying that typing <Pidgin> in /root mode\ did work.

Thanks.

Sorry it isn't working again. I need access it from terminal. How to re-enable via clicking on the icon?

Thanks.

So running it from a terminal works and clicking the icon doesn't? What are you runing, just 'pidin'? If that's the case, I'd check to see what the icon is running.

Thanks for popping-in. I rebooted twice and is working now. It looked as if it was struggling to be enabled.

///Weirdness.


Thanks.
