    Default kopete doesn't find jabber server

    kopete 4.1.3 just went bezerk on me ... worked fine yesterday (well, except for the webcam issue) with jabber, msn, aim, and icq, but today, when trying to log into jabber, i get the error message:

    a connexion error occured: unknown server

    anyone knows what's cooking here ... thanks ... theo

    just tried that ... and it might have to do with the jabber feed of gmx.net, since i could setup talk.google.com just fine ... theo

    to sum it all up:
    1. kopete works with all other im services (yahoo, msn, icq);
    2.it seems only be picky about the jabber service;
    3. i followed caf4926's link and proceeded as suggested: no improvement;
    4. i can connect to the jabber account i use via gajim or psi;
    5. since other im software is able to connect, i can only assume the error is generated in kopete.
    as of now, i consider opening a bugzilla file ... if anyone, though, has got some other ideas, i am listening ... theo

    For me it's working without any problem.

    Are you saw this blogpost: openSUSE Lizards Jabber server gmx.de via Kopete? It also connects to a gmx server.
    Hope that helps.

    Kopete Jabber uses a library called QCA for encrypted connections as used by jabber. Kopete has an internal copy of this library but your distribution may have separated it out.
    * If so, make sure you have QCA installed. (Yast and etc.)
    This may be called "libqca1-tls". Information on QCA for various distributions:
    * SUSE: the package is called "qca" but is installed by default along with Kopete.
    * You may need to restart Kopete to get the connection to work if you are editing an existing account.
