I’ve been using ICQ for near enough 10 years. Yesterday it looks as if ICQ pushed out a network update that changed versions around. This broke ICQ for me on ubuntu hardy. I’ve been waiting since last night for a patched install but alas it hasn’t come and because time is money in business I needed ICQ working so I can liase with our Russian friends.
I’ve built a patched version which is available here: http://weird.ie/files/
Just download the 2 files and do:
Restart pidgin and all will be well.
