Thread: Pidgin user data directory

  1. #1

    Exclamation Pidgin user data directory

    I was using Ubuntu and installed Opensuse 11.4. I have installed Pidgin 2.7. I copied the old .purple directory from Ubuntu into my Opensuse home directory. But now the Pidgin is not reading the data, logs and configuration from the .purple directory.

    Help!

    Is it same version as the one you were using on ubuntu? Version
    difference might be causing it. And I can confirm that my preferences
    are too on .purple directory. And in case you wonder directory
    structure, here it is:

    yasar@yasar-laptop:~/.purple> ls -al
    toplam 204
    drwx------ 7 yasar users 4096 Mar 11 03:44 .
    drwxr-xr-x 91 yasar users 4096 Mar 11 11:08 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 yasar users 11083 Mar 11 00:41 accels
    -rw------- 1 yasar users 12162 Mar 11 03:44 accounts.xml
    -rw------- 1 yasar users 120470 Mar 11 03:44 blist.xml
    drwx------ 3 yasar users 4096 Ara 21 12:41 certificates

    Yes it has these files and directories. But when I try to view the logs and start typing a name, no suggestions appear.

    Now its working! Looks like Opensuse somehow configured programs to have their own config on first run.
