I have a weird experience. I seem unable to download Puppy Lucid's version of Pidgin. I get an error at every server. And I can't get the Linux Portable apps version to work. So it was suggested to me to get the new version 7 for Windows running it through Wine.

This worked perfectly for Yahoo, MSN, but when it came to using the XMPP method for Facebook, it seems that the Jabber server is European, so I couldn't connect, nor could I alter it to the North American domain.

Any thoughts?

Sincerely,
Christopher


SOLVED - I went (for the first time) on the IRC Puppy dedicated chat room and within minutes someone (missed the name) supplied me with a true PET version of the new version referred to above, and it all worked perfectly. I believe the package is from developer Iguleder, but I am writing from a different computer. I'll post if I found out for certain.
