I had not previously jad much luck getting external componenrts to talk to an xmpp server but this works
tried a test script and saw my test message immediatly came back over its connection..nice and easy ..
this could be useful -
stays connected .. realtime notifications
- its so much easier to get anything working when its NOT a huge framework trying to do everything else too!
with everything looking like its trying to force into some kind of "cloud" extortion racket I think its time to try a different distro or os
had a play with QT last night
after a few unsuccessful attempts to compile qtractor (a music program) at the shell and fiddling with makefiles trying to get it to find its dependencies, I thought - "its qt based, maybe I should try loading it up in QT" :-)
in that it compiled first go .. I guess it now could find the libraries it needed!
maybe its time for me to learn about the IDE world!
some nice examples in there.
and unlike some other ide's i tried in the past it didn't take too long to start up!
hey does anyone know how to fix broken png icons in xfce
guessing from logs that Firefox install changed libpng somehow
I didn't manage to get pumpa to compile on freebsd (that often happens with linux source code on freebsd. makefiles, etc work differently - it probably needs a port)
but the windows version does work in wine (on freebsd)
one small thing though (if they have trouble authorising):
when authorizing the account theres a double slash after the domain in the url shown in the web browser which results in a not found error.
I manually changed that to a single slash in the browser - then it worked
apart from that it looks like it works properly
thought I'd let you know

@mcscx it would be nice if pumpio had groups (I assume it will eventually)
