Description of problem:
When I send or recieve a message using gaim .59, neither screennames nor
timestamps appear to the left of the message sent or received. In addition,
certain peoples messages cannot be seen at all... all that appears is a newline.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Send/Receive a message to someone.
Little update: While I can't see screen names for anyone in a conversation
window, it seems that the messages getting blanked out are from AOL users only,
not AIM/GAIM users. Hmmm... is this a bug or a feature?
OK, I got to the bottom of it.. I installed the 75dpi and 100dpi fonts, which
were not installed with a default workstation. However, you might consider
creating a dependancy, considering gaim was rather unusable without it.
It's been fixed in the tree.
