[Solved]-Jabber Protocol not present on Gaim

I don't have Jabber protocol on the Gaim I got from the repositories - I tried the current and svn versions and both don't have jabber. Has gaim discontinued support for Jabber? If so, how do I get into Google Talk? Or is it some problem with my package?

Re: [Solved]-Jabber Protocol not present on Gaim

Gaim definitely has not discontinued Jabber support, I'm running an svn version compiled just days ago and I haven't noticed any problems. Previously I was running gaim-svn from the repos and it worked equally well.

I have no idea what is causing your problem though.

Re: [Solved]-Jabber Protocol not present on Gaim

Working fine for me too - gaim-svn from the unstable repo, in my case. Just to clarify - you go to Accounts -> Add/Edit -> Add, and you don't see Jabber in the Protocol drop-down menu - is that correct?

Yeah, I dont see Jabber but I see a variety of other protocols, except jabber, for instance - simple, zephyr, and ofcourse, msn, yahoo, irc, icq n aim.

Re: [Solved]-Jabber Protocol not present on Gaim

I experienced ansence of the jabber protocol in the gaim package also--both the beta and svn packages. Using the PKGBUILD to compile a new package seemed to do the trick. Sorry I am not more specific.

(gaim:3867): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
        Using the fallback 'C' locale.
plugins: probing /usr/lib/gaim/libjabber.so

Re: [Solved]-Jabber Protocol not present on Gaim

gaim -d|grep jabber gives no errors for me (using gaim 2.0.0b3.1-1) .

The GTK warning means you haven't configured your locale settings correctly and this can lead to many errors.

Check /etc/rc.conf  for a line like this :

LOCALE="en_US.utf8"

as root :
- edit /etc/locale.gen
- look for the line that matches the setting in rc.conf, uncomment it and save
- execute locale-gen

try gaim again.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: [Solved]-Jabber Protocol not present on Gaim

Thanks for the reply. I did what you said-the warning is gone-but Jabber is still missing and now - gaim -d|grep jabber gives only the missing libjabber.so error. I checked /user/lib/gaim and libjabber.so is actually missing.
[edit] - solved. Glibc was missing

Re: [Solved]-Jabber Protocol not present on Gaim

Glibc was missing?! I didn't think that was possible.... :shock:

I have 169 packages on my system that depend directly on glibc. I'd be amazed if this was the only symptom you noticed.

Yea, I bet there was a lot going on your system that you didn't notice....

plugins: /usr/lib/gaim/libjabber.so is not loadable: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by /usr/lib/gaim/libjabber.so)

See where it says libjabber.so not loadable - it doesn't say its not found. Then it says GLIBC_2.4 not found. I did pacman -S glibc and it downloaded glibc and kernel-headers.

glibc wasn't missing, you just had an old version. If you haven't done it lately, you should update your system: pacman -Syu
