Issues with gdk-pixbuf Versions

:!: For me, gdk-pixbuf2 @2.36.10_1:-( and gdk-pixbuf2 @2.36.10_2:-( broke displaying images in Gajim, and updating the list of plugins got stuck. Keeping gdk-pixbuf2 @2.36.6_0:-) active worked until gdk-pixbuf2 @2.36.11:-) came out which didn'nt have issues either.

Install

With macports, its as simple as that:

port install gajim

If you want to use OMEMO:

port install gajim py-axolotl py-pil py-qrcode

Then install the OMEMO Plugin from the Plugin Manager

Running

For some reason, my locale settings screw up Gajim. Setting LANG to C works:

LANG=C gajim

(this way you change LANG only for Gajim and its descendants)

Check (gdk-pixbuf2 @2.36.6)

~ $ port installed 'active' and '(' gajim py-axolotl py-pil py-qrcode gdk-pixbuf2 libxml2 libedit glib2 fontconfig gobject-introspection ')'
The following ports are currently installed:
  fontconfig @2.12.6_0 (active)
  gajim @0.16.8_0 (active)
  gdk-pixbuf2 @2.36.6_0 (active)

Check (gdk-pixbuf2 @2.36.11)

~ $ port installed 'active' and '(' gajim py-axolotl py-pil py-qrcode gdk-pixbuf2 libxml2 libedit glib2 fontconfig gobject-introspection ')'
The following ports are currently installed:
  fontconfig @2.12.6_1 (active)

  py-axolotl @0.1.39_0 (active)
  py-pil @1.1.7_7 (active)
  py-qrcode @5.3_0 (active)
~ $
