    Are you sure the problem is with kopete, rather than the chat service?

    Is Facebook down? Check status and report outages at downrightnow

    Well, I can only suggest trying another client (eg pidgin), and see if you can connect.

    facebook and chat in facebook is working fine...
    That may not be relevant. The web-interface probably does not rely on XMPP connectivity.

    I'm not a facebook user, but assuming it is not an authentication issue, could it possibly be due to some settings within the affected account?

    I think you should get better help by asking some facebook forums or support (not sure what they have I'm not a heavy user). Of course you are welcome to stay here for help. I don't know what the problem might be.
    Best regards,

    Hello,

    I had this problem as well. I have found this error is related to Facebooks security settings. The way I have been able to fix it is to turn off "Login Approvals" in your "Account Settings - Security". This is not ideal because I like the idea of login approvals on strange devices but I also use Kopete a lot as it's handier for Facebook chat if you do not want to have a browser window open.
