Kopete won't connect to MSN

Post by Richlion » Wed Dec 07, 2011 10:33


I recently can't connect to MSN from the Kopete client. When I try to connect it says "Connecting.." and that's it. Anyone here knows where the problem is? I found this can happen because of MS messing up something and this may also be related to a "libmsn" library.
It is installed on my system:

Code: Select all

emerge --search libmsn
[ Results for search key : libmsn ]
[ Applications found : 1 ]

*  net-libs/libmsn
      Latest version available: 4.2
      Latest version installed: 4.1
      Size of files: 309 kB
      Homepage:      http://sourceforge.net/projects/libmsn/
      Description:   Library for connecting to Microsoft's MSN Messenger service.
      License:       GPL-2
Can I ask for some help?

I installed Pidgin and it connects. I checked the MSN server and changed it in Kopete to the same as in Pidgin:
but still cannot connect via Kopete.
