yeah... need to know what version to use as 1.4.4 nothing else to add. and I am hanging trying to log into facebook, but i guess canceling and trying it again won;t work as it is something to do with the version we have.
I did it, I sawed the legs of the periodic table.

Are you saying 1.4.4 isn't working for you either?

Which localisation is it you are using?

Hi,

I'm not using a localized version, just the one posted on the site (that updates itself with the nightly versions).

Kind regards,

Raf

Right, but when you open Adium, is it in English?

I have the same problem, and I'm using Adium with Norwegian locale.

Those affected by the Facebook hang (Raf, jaknudsen and others), please try tomorrow's nightly from http://nightly.adium.im/ and let us know whether that works any better.

1.5 drops PPC support, yes.

1.4.4 supports Facebook, has the same Facebook code as 1.5.

No, you will be able to use 1.4.4.

No matter what combination of events I try (logging my browsers in, logging them out, logging my phone out, etc) any attempt to add my Facebook account the "new" way fails with a login error. The litle Facebook sign-in screen comes up, but it thinks my e-mail address and password are wrong even though I'm positive that I'm typing them correctly. I even tried using my Facebook username instead of my e-mail address, still no success.

I was previously having the "half or more of my outgoing or incoming Facebook messages just vanish" issue and was really hoping 1.4.4 would be the answer for me, but it appears not yet...
I don't know what changed, perhaps something at the Facebook end, but today this is working for me! :grin:

I was able to log into the popup window and allow Adium access, and now chat seems to be working (both ways) with Facebook people from my Mac, will report back if I continue to have issues...

HI,

Sorry for the delay in the answer, busy days at work.

I've tried today's nightly and it still does not work.

The locale used is English.

Kind regards,

Raf

Hi, I'm also unable to connect to Facebook.
All other accounts are fine.

When I attempt to add Facebook, it asks me to log in. After this it asks me to confirm a passcode (security sent to my phone). I then add in the SMS passcode.
After this the pop up refreshes asking me to confirm the passcode again. Each time this happens Facebook send a new SMS with the same passcode. [Passcode is correctly typed in] .. LOOP.

Alternative method I tried was to create an app password in Facebook and log in using this.
Adium replies that it does not recognise the password even though I've tried both c&p and manually typing!

I am using V1.4.4 on Mac OSX V10.6.8 (i7 processor).
Any advice or help would be great.
Cheers,
J

The latest nightly (1.5b7r4381) fixes the hang when I try to enable a Facebook account, so I'm able to fully configure it. However, I still can't connect. Here's a log:

Ah, wait – could it be that port 5222 is blocked at my office?
