in the win client, when someone cancels a post, i check for a return code from the server.. if it replies, then i let the user know that it posted....
or are you looking at a different cancel?
Something in the way LogJam interacts with libcurl (+ threads) causes the prog to crash under certain conditions when a user presses 'cancel' on the dialog box that shows the posting progress with the server.
Have you considered making GNOME and non-GNOME debs? I don't want to repeat work, but at least a few people I know still use my debs
since there's a GNOME version (including myself).
mine are GNOME versions. I didn't know you had debs available, I've been making them since the LoserJabber mantainer stopped maintaining the packages.
Oh, okay. I would recommend splitting into GNOME and non-GNOME even more then (there's probably more people who insist on a non-GNOME version than would insist on a GNOME version), but I'll probably switch to yours, then.
Eh. considering the existing LoserJabber maintainer is already pissed at me for making these for some reason, It's not worth my time to go making two different versions. Granted, it's probably very easy to split it, I just don't have any reason to. I make .debs for my own usage, and if they're clean enough, I give them to the public.. if they use it, great. If not, oh well.

And LogJam was written on a Debian system; it's not too hard to compile.
I use the following command to "install" a new version of LogJam:
sudo cp ./logjam `which logjam`
Yeah, for CVS I sometimes do that.. Gaim I don't even bother making debs for, because they update so much & so often in CVS.
Oh, okay, I thought the intention was that yours were going to be entering unstable.
I know there's at least one official Debian Developer who uses LJ (decklin), and there's probably more. Would an NMU maybe be in order? It's not like there are substantial (any) changes to be made to a packaging setup between 2.1.5 and 3.0.x (there wasn't for me, at least), and the existing version is 9 months old.
And yeah, I encountered a degree of hostility when I started making my packages, too.

Oh, no, no hostility! It had just hurt his feelings, because it had implied he wasn't good enough without me saying anything to him directly.
I mailed him about it, anyway.

is there a KDE dockapp for any livejournal clients? (preferably logjam)
if not... couldja make one for kde 2.x =)

First off debs from unstable worked great and I love logjam. However, I have an old redhat 6.2 system that is pretty dorked rpm wise so I install everything from source. I grabed the 3.0.1 tar/ball. I compiled and got error that libcurl was missing. I downloaded libcurl 7.9.2 source and compiled w/o error. Then compiled logjam 3.0.1 without error.
However if I run logram as normal user or root I get the following error:
logjam: error in loading shared libraries: libcurl.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
However libcurl.so.2 does exist:
dneighbo@latitude:~/downloads$ locate libcurl
libcurl.so.2 links to libcurl.so.2.0.2 :
dneighbo@latitude:~/downloads$ ls -l /usr/local/lib/libcurl.so.2
lrwxrwxrwx 2 root root 16 Dec 29 09:02 /usr/local/lib/libcurl.so.2 -> libcurl.so.2.0.2
And libcurl.so.2.0.2 seems to exist:
dneighbo@latitude:~/downloads$ ls -l /usr/local/lib/libcurl.so.2.0.2
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 355450 Dec 29 09:02 /usr/local/lib/libcurl.so.2.0.2
On another note, I noticed somewhere a win32 version is maintained. I was considering basically taking logjam and porting to python w/ the wxPython toolkit. To end up with a single source program that worked on win32,gtk,motif and mac. Probably will never get around to it, but main desire would be to have a python client. As I have some evil python fetish... cheers..

Check your /etc/ld.so.conf to make sure /usr/local/lib is in your libarary path?
What's the output of "ldd `which logjam`"?
I have a weird python fetish, also. I've done a lot of work on some Python wrappers for LiveJournal. http://neugierig.org/software/livejournal/python
The .tar.gz is a tarball of the LiveJournal Python module I've made.

slap me silly please!
Been spoiled by debian for so long forgot .so's dont autoload. As soon as I saw your check ld.so.conf file I thought, duh, I didnt run ldconfig.
I ran ldconfig and all is well. I will gladly swallow my stupid pills and move along.
Looked briefly at the python modules, looks like it uses pyGTK, I was wanting to do a wxPython GUI, but one could probably make a gui independent python module set for the livejournal api and build what ever front end they like, I didnt see a license listed in the tar.gz. Let me know what you think, Im way short on time with all the other projects I have going, but I really seem hooked on the concept of livejournal. If only the backend were python instead of perl ;)
