Hi Duncan,
Thanks for the reply. I tried revdep-rebuild (didn't list anything). So
I manually recompiled all telepathy related stuff with no luck.

Kde telepathy works slightly different from other chat clients.
Here the chat-ui, contact list, etc. are all separate applications. They are
launched appropriately using dbus. So this looks more like a problem with
the dbus related config files or something else rather than ABI change.

If you use an IM client you should try out the current stable
version of kde telepathy its cool albeit not fully cooked.

Heh, I'm not an IM/IRC kind of guy. I strongly prefer the async nature
of newsgroups and email, where I can take two hours composing a detailed
reply if I want, a week or whatever later if I want, and not have to
worry about the other end waiting.

So I don't install any of that sort of stuff. If I want instant, I use
my (VoIP based) phone.

Yeah, I know that doesn't work so well with the "millenial generation",
but as I'm in my mid-40s I'm young enough to appreciate email, but I
guess not young enough to appreciate IM/IRC.

Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs.
