Can not see Chinese characters sent to me from China

Reported by: zcorker Owned by: MarkDoliner
Milestone: Component: ICQ
Version: 2.5.8 Keywords:


A user in China has been sending me messages in Chinese and I have been sending her messages in Chinese. She can see my messages, but I can't see her Chinese messages. I can only see her English messages. I have asked her to use Pidgin to see if it helps. I am using Pidgin.

When she send me messages in Chinese, I just see some rectangular squares and no characters. She is using the MSN Network. I use both ICQ and Yahoo and have both of them active in Pidgin.

I confirm that I have the same problem with a friend. We both use pidgin for MSN and Gtalk and type Chinese characters. With the Gtalk account, we have no problem, but when it comes to the MSN account, I can receive the messages she sends to me, but she cannot see the characters I send to her.

In case that matter, I'm using the version shipped with GNU/Linux Debian and she's using Windows 2.5.8 (this phenomenon didn't occur with previous versions... previous not necessarily meaning "2.5.7" as I have no idea what was her last update).

I suspect this is a duplicate or at least related to #604.
