Pidgin does not connect automatically

Reported by: daniel_le_rouge Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.10.0 Keywords: connection ubuntu xmpp automatically



every time I start Pidgin, it will not connect automatically to XMPP (GTalk and Facebook). When I want to receive a connection I have to disable the account and to re-enable them manually, which is pretty annoying. This behaviour started after the upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10.

In my debug file I simulated the behaviour. First, I started Pidgin without an Internet connection, than I activated it without effect and finally I deactivated and reactivated the accounts which works. I also tried pidgin -f, but this has no effect as well.

What can I do to let Pidgin connect automatically again?

I am using Pidgin 2.10.0 and Ubuntu 11.10.

Thanks in advance,

Same problem on:

LinuxMint? LMDE (debian Edition), MATE 1.2 Pidgin 2.10.6 Gtalk & Live

Otherwise, 'pidgin -f' solves the issue. Regards
