Version: 0.12.1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from: SuSE RPMs
I had set a photo in the global identity only. For me this means, use that photo for all my accounts. Yet for MSN it seems that one has to explicitly enable the "export photo", which I would suspect kopete does when enabling a global photo.
Same thing here with kopete from KDE 3.5.5 compiled from source

One-line patch that solves the bug (I hope)
I can confirm this bug with the latest svn from 3.5 branch.
If you set the photo for the MSN account, it works.
I've attacched a small patch (one-line) that fixes the bug (tested with the
official MSN client).
Is not really necessary to pass false to readBoolEntry, since it is the option by default. "true" and "false" should be changed by enums or something, since booleans on parameters don't give information when reading.
I should write that line this way:
if( (configGroup()->readBoolEntry("ExcludeGlobalIdentity") ) &&

That's ok by me. I used the code that I found on line 1260 of the same file (in the MSNAccount::slotGlobalIdentityChanged method).
Any news about this patch?
It could be nice to have it in KDE 3.5.6 :)
The patch can be committed.
Has the patch been committed? Does kopete work as wished now?
Sorry, I completely forgot about this bug.
As I wrote here:
the issue has been solved (at least for me); as no one objected, I'm closing this bug.
