1  aMSN Support / General / Re: My Own MSN client on: August 27, 2011, 12:31:31 am

First of all, good luck for your project!!

I don't understand why users should use your server either. Just let them connect directly... That way you won't have to worry about agreements or permissions either. That should also get rid of several privacy questions ("why should this application upload my password?")

I'm not sure about official permissions. I've just noticed that eBuddy randomly picks one server out of a pool, so maybe you shouldn't have several connections from the same server after all. In any case, I don't see a good reason to not connect directly.

If you don't mind a personal request... I'd love a chat client for my Symbian phone, where I can open the application, type my password (NOT save it! Not even an application password to access my MSN password that's stored elsewhere!), login invisible, start chatting as invisible, and have my PSM intact back when I login with aMSN!

It seems to work but it doesn't drop you offline to the user you block. Instead you need to restart aMSN. That's not a huge problem but is there no way to go offline for a single user?
You don't need to restart aMSN. Just logout and log back in - or try going invisible and back online. They keep changing the protocol over there at MS so I don't know how it would behave.

Is this setting anything to worry about too?
Also if you go into the preferences window and then go to the privacy tab the setting for "Only users I accepted are allowed to contact me" and "Allow all users to contact me, except for those I blocked" doesn't save.

Seems they removed this choice as well.

Thanks for reporting. Fixed in svn r12339.
4  aMSN Support / Other OSes / aMSN on WeTab on: August 13, 2011, 03:15:02 pm
Instructions on how to run aMSN on WeTab:

The WeTab Meego uses rpm, much like Fedora, and has a lot of helpful packages available.

1) Root the device (install the Root application from the WeTab Market). This will install a terminal where you can sudo.

2) Open the terminal from your desktop.

3) sudo yum install subversion tcl tcl-devel tk tk-devel gcc gcc-c++ make libjpeg-devel libv4l-devel

4) Install aMSN SVN : svn co ; cd amsn ; ./configure ; make   (Or just compile the latest version from source)

5) Since I don't think you'll want to run aMSN from console every time, create a desktop icon using the instructions here:

* exo-desktop-item-edit -c ~/.appdata/tiitoo-pinnwand/tiitoo-localbookmarks/
* Fill in the dialog with details (important: the Command must be /home/YOUR_USER/amsn/amsn )
* cd ~/.appdata/tiitoo-pinnwand/tiitoo-localbookmarks/
* cp ~/amsn/skins/default/pixmaps/amsnicon.png .
* vi aMSN.desktop
* replace the icon you chose with amsnicon.png
* sudo killall tiitoo-pinnwand

( instructions taken from )

6) You'll also need the TLS package, and I don't think it's provided so you'll have to fetch it yourself.
* cd ~/.amsn/plugins    (create the directory if it doesn't exist)
* wget
* (since wget is stupid and doesn't use the right filename) tar xvfz download-tls.php\?arch\=linuxx86     (Or just downl<tab> )

7) That's it, you can click the aMSN icon on your desktop and start it!

I also couldn't find a libsnack package available so you won't be able to use sound clips, if you're really interested, feel free to try compiling it and let me know how it goes. Smiley
5  aMSN Support / Windows / Re: aMSN 0.98.4 no connection to server, Windows version, bug report on: December 19, 2010, 08:48:19 pm
Hi, and thanks for finally reporting this, many users seem to suffer from it!

Please try the following:

1) Go to the directory where aMSN 0.98.4 is installed and keep the directory "scripts" at a safe place (e.g. your desktop).
2) Install aMSN 0.98.3
3) Rename the directory "scripts" from aMSN 0.98.3 to something else, and replace it with the "scripts" from 0.98.4.

If this doesn't work, remove your settings directory, which was C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\amsn in previous Windows versions.

Let us know what happens.

Good luck!

We don't package aMSN for any Linux distributions. Ask the Debian team instead.
7  aMSN Support / Macintosh / Re: AMSN 0.98.4 help on: December 13, 2010, 09:47:31 pm
I'm locking this thread because we have 2 different issues. Besides, the title is so generic that it will attract more different problems. Not to mention it's not a development related issue (you're not writing any code for aMSN), but rather two platform-specific support requests.

@Control: follow the thread here:;topicseen

@BrownSugar : I guess you are on Mac too, if you mention it bounces on your dock, so follow my advice to Control.

@itdcmy : Please make a new thread and paste your status log (Ctrl+S) and protocol log (Ctrl+D), censoring out sensitive data such as email or IP addresses.
8  aMSN Support / Linux / Re: Error in startup script: can't find package des on: December 11, 2010, 12:23:04 am
ls -al
in the amsn directory, where you compiled it. It's weird, it should find all files by itself.
9  aMSN Support / Macintosh / Re: Offline Message Problems on: December 10, 2010, 10:13:38 pm
Close aMSN, move away your settings directory and try again Smiley
10  aMSN Support / Linux / Re: amsn 0.98.3 offline messages problem on: December 10, 2010, 10:12:24 pm
If this can read offline messages, stay with it.
11  aMSN Support / Linux / Re: Error in startup script: can't find package des on: December 10, 2010, 10:11:22 pm
Which steps did you follow to compile aMSN?
12  The Community / Plugins / Re: Group messages on: December 04, 2010, 10:12:28 pm
It's in main aMSN now, you can open a chatwindow, go to the menu View → Style and select Compact.
13  aMSN Support / Windows / Re: aMSN crashes when using youtube or other on: November 11, 2010, 01:55:14 am
Try disabling sounds in aMSN?
14  aMSN Support / Linux / Re: Empty dialog.. on: October 26, 2010, 05:50:53 pm
How did you install aMSN? Maybe you used the Windows installer using Wine? If so, uninstall it and look at our wiki for information on how to install the SVN version on Linux.
15  aMSN Support / General / Re: Update from MSN - help!!! on: October 23, 2010, 06:53:34 pm
You can copy them on your settings directory from your old to your new account.

You use Windows, right? Which version? If not Windows, which OS do you use?
