Discovering Drivel :)

I am just experimenting with Drivel, an gnome online/offline blog editor for Linux 🙂

If all goes well this should appear online! 🙂

edit: this should test the updates…. – google talk / pidgin problems fixed

Just a quicky,  to get working with pidgin:

1.  Enter your gmail address in

2.  In pidgin add as a buddy

3.  You will get an authorise request (or 4 🙂 ) just authorise the first one and give it a sane name like

4. Try sending it an IM,  this will probably fail with a message : [] Unknown user; go to to add your address to your account

5. Look at what username your message went from in my case it was

6. Pop back into the web page for IM settings and change your IM name to what ever it sent it as

7. You will get a message from saying basically click on this link to confirm your jabber id.

8. Click on it.

Done 🙂
