[EASYFIX] Pidgin does not detect presence of gnome-network-properties program
Last modified: 2010-01-25 09:16:44 EST
Description of problem:
When I go to Tools - Preferences - Network, pidgin tells me that the proxy configuration program was not found. Therefore the button to configure proxies system-wide is disabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Button is disabled, notification text is displayed
- Button should be clickable
The problem is that pidgin checks for gnome-network-preferences but in Fedora 11 it is called gnome-network-properties. As a workaround I can just create a symlink in /usr/bin and the button starts working.
Fixed upstream: http://developer.pidgin.im/viewmtn/revision/info/79639d895e39ef23c24691d0736a265373e2b49c
Will be in 2.6.4.
