Adium Messenger Reviver
As there’s been some requests for this, I put together a simple dmg which lets you copy the newly patched libpurple to the correct Adium (/Applications/Adium.app/Contents/Frameworks/libpurple.framework/Versions/Current) folder. Hopefully Adium is updated soon so this won’t be needed.
Update: In addition to the above, due to changes on the Messenger servers, you will now need to make a small adjustment to make Adium work. Choose the Adium menu, choose Preferences, double-click the MSN account, choose the Options category and change the Login Server to be msn.messengergeek.com and click OK. This should be included in a future Adium Reviver version.
The post, Most third-party Messenger clients have gone offline temporarily has more info about the change made.
Additionally, you can also revive the official Messenger:mac client.
- If you receive a message that the “libpurple folder” requires an administrator password, you probably don’t have Adium or the right version of Adium installed.
- On some accounts you might not be able to see your full contact list, this should soon be resolved in other clients and hopefully fixed in Adium too.
