I installed the newest version of aMSN over the old one I was using. All my smilies were there and all was good.
Then I had to kill the program, and next time I restarted it the smilies were all gone. I tried the old version (which I left installed in another folder) and they're gone from there too.
The files are still in the appropriate folder, but aMSN doesn't use them anymore.
What can I do? I had a huge collection that I'd be really sorry to lose.
Hi, I have the same problem some days ago, but when I switch from debian etch to ubuntu gutsy. All when fine, my preferences, contacts logs, but smileys. I tried reinstalling ubuntu's amsn package and compiling the cvs version but without success, my old smileys didn't work. After compare my old config.xml and the new config.xml I notice this difference:
Look at the "file" tag, in the old file there is an absolute path to the png file, and in the new file, a relative path. I just change the absolute to relative paths and all my smileys comeback
In the new config file there is also a new <preview> tag but it seem smileys work without this tag. Hope this help.
