Re: Yahoo after August 5

definitely sucks. been staying in touch with a friend via yahoo chat since 2003.... but he cannot run the yahoo app because it somehow messes with his VPN he needs for business(unless the new app has fixed that?), so now I can receive his message from Pidgin, but he does not get my replies from yaho...

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

are there any new plans to fix adium to work with yahoo? I see it is still 1.5.10, which is what I've had on my machine for months. I have yahoo messenger 3.0.2 working, but it asks me three times (and I keep pressing 'always allow') to access my keychain info! kind of annoying and would be nice to ...

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

Does CS2 not work in Mavericks? I'm using CS2 in Mountain Lion without any issues. it is NOT supposed to work with anything above snow leopard as it is still PPC code...meaning without Rosetta, CS2 shouldn't work on the new OS.... btw...I am currently on an old G4 at my workshop running Tiger and y...

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

I am able to connect with yahoo Messenger 3.0.2 on OS 10.6.8, but only if I enter my entire yahoo email address rather than just the username. The available is yellow as well, but it's been that way for a while. I reacted to that as well, but am wondering if it just seemed unusual because adium uses...

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

What's annoying is that Yahoo must have made changes on their end without even updating their own user software...at least for Snow Leopard...as there are problems with login there too....though there is a work around there at least.

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

Unfortunately, if you see the release notes, 1.5.10b1 only fixes the problem on the newest OS versions...a lot of people, like me, are still using snow leopard in order to be able to use older software like Adobe CS2 etc because it's too costly to upgrade. 1.5.10b1 does not fix the problem under sno...

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

for those not being able to connect with the actual yahoo messenger program, try replacing your username with your entire yahoo address. Only way I could get it to connect for me.

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

Same here...seems to be down again this morning...the logical assumption is that the issue is on Yahoo's end....something they are tinkering with.

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

Yahoo Messenger 3.0.2 running on Snow Leopard was also failing to log in until I changed my user ID from just the ID part to the entire yahoo email address. Unfortunately, this does not work in Adium for some reason.

not all messages getting through from FB/Yahoo

I'm having two similar but slightly different issues with FB chat and Yahoo chat. On FB, randomly, messages will not come through, even though it says I am connected. They will come through on FB itself, either as a message or in my inbox. On Yahoo, I have a friend using the equivalent of Adium for ...

1.4.5 no sound after clean syst install

At first, I did what I always did, and manually took the prefs and the adium folder from application support in the user library from the one partition to the new system on another partition. Started up fine, but no sound during messages. I checked and tried different sound options under alerts. I a...

Re: Facebook Contact Availability Bug

prior to the complete disfunction of the FB chat via adium, I noticed it would often log people out after getting a message from them, then they would come back online...but now it seems to require a new action on their behalf or they are completely invisible except for brief periods. At first, I th...

Re: Adium won't log in to Facebook

I'm getting the same error on a ppc mac(G5) using adium 1.4.5 rc1 and Leopard. I've noticed for a few days now that facebook chat keeps loosing touch on the page itself with a message 'unable to contact chat' or something like that. Perhaps they are upgrading chat programming?

facebook chats on adium show up as 'new mail'

just a little quirk since facebook changed their messaging system...which I personally don't like..... When I have a fb chat via adium, it now shows up as a new, UNREAD mail in FB...anyway to make it show up there, but as read? They now have all chats and emails stuck under one messaging section, so...
