GoogleTalk's user alias not being automatically fetched
|Reported by:||VuDu||Owned by:||deryni|
Currently, users have to set their local alias in the account options so that they don't see the "username@gmail/something says" instead of the user's real full name in the conversation window.
The alternative I use is adding myself to my contact list, which incorrectly shows me on the contact list with my email as my alias, and doing a "Get Info" on myself after every pidgin start.
Setting the local alias in the account options doesn't fix the contact list name, so I use the "Get info" method which works around both issues, but it has to be done every time I start Pidgin.
