Bug Description

Binary package hint: kopete

Since today (2006-10-31) Kopete 0.12.3 can't log in to ICQ anymore.

Original Bug:
KDE Bug:

Requesting SRU as this affects many Kubuntu users.
I consider not beeing able to login to ICQ a severe regression if not updated.

Sorry about that.
Fixed in proposed.debdiff

Upstream has changed the fix.
The implemented fix only allows you to connect with status 'Online'. (You can however change to any status after the initial connection.)

The new revision allows you to make the initial connection with for example 'Away' status too.

More info:

Will add debdiff as soon as I've tested the new fix myself.

We will have to open a new SRU for dapper, as fixing the kopete in dapper-main is not as stright forward. (icq has been broken for some time, needs more fixes)
Backporting this fix to dapper-backports will be stright forward though.

I'm running edgy-eft (kopete 0.12.3) and I'm unable to use ICQ for about a week! Will there be a fix available soon?

Updated from edgy-proposed, kopete_3.5.5+kopete0.12.3-0ubuntu2.1_i386, icq logs on/off fine and logs on as any status ok.

Martin Böhm (martin.bohm) wrote :

Tested on i386, ICQ login works fine with "Online". However, when I try logging in with a different status, for instance "Invisible" and "Away", it first informs me in the chat window that I'm "Online" and only after that it reports that I'm "Away" and "Invisible". It seems though that it's not a big problem as the friend who watched my status on the other end reported that I was "Invisible" all the time.

I was able to reproduce the bug and confirm that ICQ now works with the latest patch.

I only tested for regressions in ICQ messaging and not in any of the other plugins.

Approved for upload to edgy-updates on the 11th.
