I use "Pidgin" on Ubuntu instead of Yahoo Messenger, and i recently noticed that when i am offline and somebody writes me, "Pidgin" won't show it to me as offline messages, or when i write to my friend by "Pidgin" while my friend is offline, he won't get my offline messages either, and i didn't see an option to see conversation history. how can i fix these 3 problems?
All the messenger logs will be stored under
.purple directory located in your home directory.
this is the location where all your yahoo messenger chat logs will be stored.
You can also view the logs by selecting "Conversation -> View Log" when you have the contact window opened.
To send a message to a offline contact, use "Offline Message Emulation". Open "Tool->Plugins" and make sure you have selected "Offline Message Emulation". This will save the message you sent to a offline contact and the message will be delivered once he is online.
If you are offline and a contact sends you a message that will be delivered to you when you come online.
There are other good plugins for pidgin. To install the extra plugins use the command
sudo apt-get install pidgin-plugin-pack
Hope this helps.
If you enable the "History" plugin, recent conversations will be shown in message windows. I find that very useful.
