Description Krishnamurti Nunes 2008-08-06 21:39:00 UTC
Version:           0.12.17 (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

I use kopete to connect to jabber.org, google talk, msn and icq, altogether.

From couple weeks ago on, icq does not connect any more.

I just have a little message like "You have been disconnected from icq" (note that I see the message in my language, and that is probably just an aproximate version of it).

Sometimes I also have a message such: "ICQ server thinks your client is outdated and it cannot connect to icq protocol".

I tryed deleting all kopete related files in .kde/share/apps and .kde/share/config and then configure all accounts again, but the error persists.

I have kopete 0.12.7 using kde 3.5.9-3 on a debian unstable box.

I'd like to know if there's something wrong on my configs, if some new version fixes the bug, but it's not in debian, or if icq protcol really changed and kopete can't actualy use it yet.

Please add into ~/.kde/share/config/kopeterc this:

ClientString=ICQ Client 

btw Kopete should download new ICQ version strings automatically if you can browse kopete.kde.org in Konqueror.

Well, the tips sort of worked for me, but now the ICQ shows all my contacts as disconnected, until they authorize my contact to talk to them again. Most of the contact are now marked as "Unauthorized". Is that something related to the original problem?

Comment 3 Roman Jarosz 2008-08-12 09:26:14 UTC
Shouldn't be, but two or three months ago ICQ made authorization mandatory so you can't see if contact is online anymore if he didn't authorize you.
