Anscheinend, in unendlichen Weisheit, Google eine Sicherheitsfunktion, die eine Anwendung zugreifen oder mit Ihrem Google-Konto blockieren kann. Ich kann sehen, wie das könnte ein Problem für die Google-Nutzer, insbesondere deren GTalk und Gmail Nutzer. In meinem Fall war es Pidgin habe ein Problem mit der Quasseln Service (was technisch Teil des GTalk). Ich fand die Lösung nach einer kleinen Graben. Ich war erstaunt, wie alt das Thema war überrascht und wie lange diese Funktion existiert!

Some of you might have noticed issues mit MSN/Live‘s servers yesterday. The problem was related to a specific protocol version of MSN. Some IM software have an automatic failover to use a different version of the protocolsbut apparently Pidgin (my currentaggregateIM of choice) doesn’t do this by default. Adium (für Mac OS) uses the same libraries (libpurple) as pidgin and was also affected. I’m not sure what other software was affectedhowever pidgin is popular enough that many of my friends thought MSN was completely out of commission.

The easiest short-term solution is to install an alternative MSN protocol library and to switch to it on demand. The long-term solution would be to convince libpurple’s developers to build in a failover facility. I tried out msn-pecan, a plugin which is actually a fork of the built-in MSN protocol library. The plugin appears to be using the slightly older protocol version. The advantage of this is that you don’t have to recompile pidgin to switch between versions.

To adjust, once you’ve installed msn-pecan:

  • Restart pidgin
  • press Ctrl+A or Select Accounts -> Manage Accounts
  • select your MSN account and ensure that it is offline (very likely at the time) by unchecking the tickbox next to the account
  • Klicken [Modify]
  • change theProtocoldrop-down box fromMSN” zu “WLM
  • Klicken [Save]
  • click the tickbox again to re-enable the account.

To change it back, do the same, except change the Protocol drop-down back toMSN”.

(xx:55:12) You feel a disturbance in the force
(xx:56:34) Knifflig: Afternoon 🙂
(xx:05:54) anon: HI
(xx:08:19) anon has left the conversation.

Sometimes I think I shouldn’t let Pidgin try to make me Jedi.
