Try this package:

 

http://repository.maemo.org/extras-testing/dists/fremantle/install/telepathy-extras.install

 

Open the link in your phone's browser..

 

It adds support for loads of systems, MSN, AIM and others..

Re: Can N900 use MSN messenger?

there is no native Messenger application yet for n900.,

but you can add Amsn, and works as a IM client for n900. like typing sms with yor frindsd. and you can see online buddies etc. it suppose to work with webcam also.

 

otherwise there is also pidgin, very good msn app for n900 which has many features aswell

Re: Can N900 use MSN messenger?

I recommend against using amsn at the moment.. it installs TK and TCL onto the root file system and that eats a LOT of space.. it will almost certainly prevent you from installing the PR1.1 firmware that is due out soon.

 

It is also a seperate application.. the link I sent before is for "built in" support.. You can add MSN details into contacts in the address book and you can send MSN instant messages straight from the conversations application..

aah ok. thanx for the headsup. 

i acually thought amsn was the builtin "convo"  msn.

 

i wont install amsn then., im still waiting for a fix for my simcard to work on n900.,

right now this beauty is just sleeping. :smileysad:

Re: Can N900 use MSN messenger?

It is supposed to be pretty good as a stand alone app.. but it hasn't been fully "optified" yet as I understand and that just kills vital space.. It'll happen eventually, I'm sure.. but in the mean time, the plugin package just fits in quite nicely! It's like msn support was there all along!

Re: Can N900 use MSN messenger?

I thought the contact list was automatically synced with your address book. If you open the contacts app, do you see the entries in there? If you open the menu buttons at the top, you can select "Groups" and it should show you an option for your MSN account?

Re: Can N900 use MSN messenger?

its probably not an app, but rather protocols that integrate into the default im system.

 

go to menu, settings, voip & im accounts. tap on new, and make a new account with the protocols youve downloaded.

 

then connect when youre online.

 

go back to contacts. you can tap the bar at the top and choose groups to isolate only your msn contacts or other im contacts.
