attempting to create a non-AIM account on Pidgin results in blank window contents
Last modified: 2012-08-29 15:14:48 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to add an additional account to Pidgin you end up with a blank window containing only the protocol selected
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch Pidgin and attempt to add an account by selecting Accounts -> Manage Accounts
2.From the Accounts window that pops up select Add
3.From the Add Account window that pops up change the protocol away from AIM (the default) to any other protocol.
A mostly blank window where you cannot fill in the account details for the protocol you selected.
A window full of text boxes and labels allowing you to fill in the details for the protocol you selected.
This was resolved a long time ago. Not sure what version fixed things, but package pidgin-2.10.5-1.fc17.x86_64 doesn't show any of the issues reported in this bug.
