    Question Empathy not working with MSN

    I am using suse 11.2 and I am not able to login to Windows Live protocol (MSN) using empathy. This seems to be caused by a small change in the protocol. There is a simple solution detailed here:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...81/comments/13

    The problem is that I don't know which file is the equivalent to /usr/share/pyshared/papyon/service/description/AB/__init__.py . Any suggestions?

    Usual comment 11.2 is end of life and should be upgraded, but that does
    not help you in this moment so let us see.
    I do not use empathy and msn so I hope a short in the dark is ok for
    you. I looked at the bug report you mention and and it refers to papyon.
    Can you check as a first step that the papyon package is installed (I
    see in 11.4 it has exactly that name) and then run the following command
    to see which files it contains
    Code:
    rpm -ql papyon
    when you look at this list you should be able to identify where the
    equivalent of the
    /usr/share/pyshared/papyon/service/description/AB/__init_ file is on
    openSUSE.

    In 11.4 it is this file
    /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/papyon/service/description/AB/__init__.py
    I think for 11.2 you just need to replace the 2.7 with 2.6 to get the
    path on your system.

    The Empathy not working with MSN problem exists in 12.1 as well. The solution mentioned above of making the following change fixed the issue for me.

    Edit /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/papyon/service/description/AB/__init__.py

    and make the following change:

    url = "http://contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"
    to this
    url = "http://local-bay.contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"

    i did change the file by typing:
    gnomesu gedit /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/papyon/service/description/AB/__init__.py

    and then modifying url to: url = "http://local-bay.contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"

    still MSN messenger protocol is not connecting, it just says connection failed

    That is near to impossible, by the way root is the owner of the file.
    You probably typed something wrong, what did you do exactly (best is you
    post an exact copy of what you typed including all the output the
    terminal gives you).

    still MSN messenger protocol is not connecting, it just says connection failed
    so after this the only option i had to check was the port, i think i changed it before but i set it up to 1863 and now i am connected...it worked

    Thanks for your replies. It worked perfectly. By the way, is this going to be distributed to the rest of users as an update fix? I mean, is a very small change but of significant value to the wlm protocol users.
