Duplicate "Available" status entries

Asked by Roman Polach on 2007-03-19

I have these status items available in combobox at the bottom of Gaim main window:

Available
Away
Invisible
Offline
--- (division line)
Available
I'm not here right now
--- (division line)
New...
Saved...

I do not know why there are 2x "Available" items there and what is the
difference between "I'm not here right now" and "Away"...

Moreover, when I choose "Away", then this items would also duplicate itself, so I get:

Available
Away
Invisible
Offline
--- (division line)
Available
Away
I'm not here right now
--- (division line)
New...
Saved...

Is it a bug or do I not understand Gaim status switching correctly?

Hi,

Go to Preferences > Away/Idle and check if you created a new Away profile.

Take care.

I do not see how to create away profile on "Away/Idle" preferences page
( I made screenshot of this dialog page here: http://artwine.wz.cz/secondary/gaim_pref_screenshot.png )
...anyway, I have not set any away profile myself..

but maybe relevant information is that I use 1 oscar/icq and 1 jabber account simultaneously... but disabling jabber account does not change behavior described above..

is described behaviour normal?
(if not, I would post a bugreport on it)

What does mean that this question expired please?

I see duplicate entries as described also in Gaim for Windows..

Boris de Laage (bbloup) said : #7

The list of status after the first separator is for user defined status OR least recently used status with status message.

Which version do you use ? Because I remember in some older beta this list was growing really fast as "normal" status were also added to it. Seems fixed in Beta 6, though.

For user-defined status, click on "Saved" to remove the ones you don't want anymore.

"Saved" list is empty.. but in Feisty (Gaim beta6) seems to be fixed now,
thanx.
