View Full Version : pidgin IM client not working under ubuntu

recently reformatted my hard drive and only got around to re-installing ubuntu tonight. since hardy came with pidgin i was using that before i reformatted now i re-install hardy (haven't had the time to download intrepid yet) pidgin will log in but when i try to send a message it bounces back saying message could not be delivered due to switchboard error. ive done some googling and apparently its happened to others but no solutions so i thought id ask the collective brain power of technibbles for help :)

yes i have tryed updating. also tryed another IM client with no luck. im thinking it might be a problem with my network settting under ubuntu?

nvm.. the problem seems to have fixed itself when i installed intrepid :S now im tryna replicate the problem so i know what was doing it if it happens again in the future ;) i know replacement inst a substitute for fixing but if it works i dont care.
