Hi! I recently switched to Ubuntu and wanted to use WLM. So I downloaded Pidgin and tried to configure the ports and server and all that stuff, but I couldn’t find that information on the forum nor on the Escargot website. I also tried installing wlm with Wine, with 0 success
I have Lubuntu in a VM, I will try to connect.
Men, you’re very mean with Microsoft, Windows is Windows and the another OS are mountain and snakes (NOTE: is a joke)
From looking at a copy of Pidgin 2.0 (not on Linux though), all MSN Messenger config is located inside
libmsn.dll. Unfortunately, the authentication URLs are set up as the base URL and
<request> /<path> separated from each other. So you’d have to edit the source files for Pidgin so that the MSN components connect to Escargot and then recompile it from the ground up.
LibMSN is removed from newer Pidgin versions, however, we could make an external plugin to support MSNP(11)
Yeah. I was also thinking about forking
libmsn (possibly call it
libesg?) and creating plugins for both Pidgin and Kopete (both KDE and Trinity versions of the latter) to support those.
However, I don’t feel inclined to take up the challenge myself.
