Description of problem:
When chatting with AOL 8 users I can't see their text. They can see my text. I
can see their emotocons :-), though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.click on a friend who is using aol 8.0
3.verify that you cannot see his text.
Actual Results: I could not see the AOL 8.0 user's text.
Expected Results: I should have seen text typed by aol 8.0 user
1) download http://ruxi.ath.cx:443/download/gaim-0.60cvs-1.src.rpm
2) (as root) rpmbuild --rebuild gaim-0.60cvs-1.src.rpm
3) rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/gaim-0.60cvs-1.i386.rpm
4) fixed link...the new gaim is in /usr/bin...I think RH puts it in /usr/lib.
In preferences if you click the checkbox that says "Ignore Font Faces" in the
Conversations pane, does this problem go away?
This should have been fixed in rawhide. Based on the lack of feedback I'm
assuming this was the same problem.
