Can receive files, but cannot send to Yahoo users

Postby Temaki » Sun Aug 05, 2012 8:02 pm

I can't transfer files to Yahoo users although from my end it says the receiver has successfully received.
and yes, I can receive the files, but cannot send.

I reported this years ago, and it is still not fixed. When Adium initiates a file send, the user is never asked to accept it, but the file goes off (to somewhere). Adium claims it was sent. The receiver never gets it.

Thanks. I wondered if it was a duplicate.
The bug was opened 3 years ago. Any idea of a timeframe on a solution? Is there anything I can do to assist with debugging?

I had filed a bug on this, and just today they closed it claiming it was not in Adium’s code. Presumably it is part of Pidgin.
Everyone start complaining to Pidgin.

Which of your tickets was closed today? I reopened the ticket I linked above, maybe you got an email notification for that.

This was the ticket.

Milestone Adium 1.5 deleted
Resolution set to notadiumcode
Status changed from new to closed

This ain't fixed, see ​#p12472.
comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by Robby

I guess it is Pidgin code. I think I filed a bug there too. But no one seems to care.

Okay, that comment is from the ticket I linked above which I reopened four days ago.

The problem is pretty hard to track down. It is generally hard to make file transfers work in the many existing network constellations and with services like Yahoo being proprietary and closed source ("locked up"). Much of the code relevant to file transfer is in libpurple, a library (piece of code) which the Adium developers have little involvement in. Some work has gone into libpurple towards improving the reliability of Yahoo file transfers as https://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/12472 shows. The issue might have received a little more attention Adium-side if it were with a more commonly used service than Yahoo and if there weren't many other convenient ways of exchanging files such as Cloud.app, Dropbox, Droplr…

Hi Robby,

thanks for looking at this anyway. Yahoo chat is often used for chatting and discussing files simultaneously hence the use of it rather than other online storage options. The files are typically one off transfers as well so the added hassle of uploading, posting link, then deleting from online storage is not often warranted. I'd be using adium full time if this were fixed; it is currently the only thing preventing my full migration. There are other users around in a similar position. I understand the setting of priorities though.

Thanks,
404wanderer

Alas, I have a lot of friends who refuse to use anything other than Yahoo chat.

The more pressing problem is that AOL group chats are broken on Adium for people using the new AIM. It says that their client is not supported. And if they ionvite you, you can never delete the group that is created.

Same here.
I've never been able to send files to yahoo users, no matter what version of Adium I've used over the years.
I keep yahoo on the dock for a send-a-file-in-a-pinch, when email is unavailable. Much better to send files using Yahoo that are too big to send via email. i.e. 40mb mpegs!
But it doesn't matter if it's a 1kb text or a 40mb file, won't send.
