I´m pretty new to this whole Linux thing, and I wanted to start with installing me a Instant Messenger to probably be able to communicate more easily and comfortable.
I installed the latest "SIM" version and have several Problems. First of all, my whole main-window disappeared. The only thing I can see is a popup when someone wrote me. But my userlist is missing. It was there in the beginning and now disappeared. O_o
Second thing is, that I am from Germany and the Messenger doesn´t display "Ö", "Ä" and "Ü". Can I do some changes to fix that? And wheres my main window?
would be glad if someone could help me.
take a look in your "systray" and klick the sim icon... the contactlist should appear
after a few seconds it will disapear again.
you can disable this action in "settings" "plugins" "docking" and remove the cross at "hauptfenster anzeigen/verstecken nach... sekunden inaktivität"
for your problems with the german umlauts (ja die heissen wirklich so ;) ) open again the settings dialog (or configuration, in german it is called "einstellungen") select your contact and then change the codepage ("kodierung")
"Westeuropäisch iso 8859-15" should be the right for you :)
hope could help you
thanks for your proposal Jan, but my main window doesnt appear at all. :-/
seems like the program is running in the background somehow. The only thing that shows up is the chat window when I got a message.
Actually I completely trust in your way of dealing with the problem. The only thing is that I cant even open a "settings" menue.
do you have a sim icon in your systray?
try to click with the right mouse button on it and then start the settings menu
oh i just saw the shortcut ctrl+shift+a to display the main windows, try this too.
