    i've always had most of my contacts show up with numbers as names with the facebook plugin. the jabber plugin works really well for facebook.

    make yourself a 'username' in your facebook account settings.

    install the jabber plugin

    configure it with:

    username: yourfacebookusername@chat.facebook.com

    resource: (leave this blank)

    server: chat.facebook.com

    port: 5222

    tls: false

    avatars: false

    password: yourfacebookpassword

    -------------
    all your facebook contacts should show up with names instead of numbers in the messaging application. furthermore, synergy will link the majority of these to the facebook account in contacts and messaging will display profile pictures as the avatars.

    there were a handful of contacts i had to link manually due to small name discrepancies. ie. John H. Doe = John Doe

    No problem. Let me know how it works for you. Since I made this change I haven't seen my phone sign off unless I actually lost signal entirely.

    The only problem I'm still having is that some times my roster shows up empty on the phone. I don't know if this is caused by the messaging plugins, or if open fire is screwing something up....

    i believe the difference, is that the fb plugin uses facebook's proprietary API to communicate, whereas the jabber plugin uses a standardized protocol and connects to a different fb server set up to work with jabber.

    i don't read every single post in the many messaging plugins threads, but last i read, the fb plugin has had mixed results for many, and is still under development.

    After weeks of trying to figure this out, you finally hit the nail!! Thank you! No more numbers for me.

    has anyone had this issue with jabber facebook. a contact messages you but you can't respond back. you type something and its grayed out like its not going thru. This happens on and off. But I can start conversations but not the other way around sometimes. if that makes sense. im using the 2.3 plugins and sprint 1.4.1.1
    Je fais ce que je veux avec mes cheveux!!! Sprint: Pre+ 2.1

    The problem I'm having now is a bit different. If the same contact has gtalk and facebook they get linked through sinergy, then that contact will be duplicated even if only one account is online. Anyway this can be fixed Greg?

    i've had this happen from time to time, most often with windows live. full reboot takes care of it for me.

    Has anyone had success installing this on 1.4.1?

    Hi guys,

    Anyone out there able to help me debug some C?

    I have figured out the lines of code failing on the Pre (that work on the emulator and pidgin in general) that stops group wise from working correctly.

    Something with the Pre must be wrong no so much the code but maybe the lines of code might help someone help me.

    If you could help please P.M me.

    Thanks
    Greg

    ocassionally I am unable to send messages or receive messages from others. It seems as if i am ignoring my friends. This is causing me much distress. Can you fix this issue somehow?

    I am going to uninstall it until then.

    I mean it like this.. The jabber account is already linked to the right contact.

    The contacts app is showing the uid's because that is the "real" information for that protocol. If the contacts app didn't display this info there wouldn't be a place to view it anywhere. Since you must select an individual contact to open to view the uid's you should know who you're looking at. Why would you want to look at the contact name again for the contact you selected?

    The IM app is grouping everything by the contact name specified in the primary profile for the contact. This makes the IM app more legible and user friendly.
