Pidgin Facebook Connection error, "Not authorized" fix
|The one client to rule|
If this problem frequently occurs and bugs you like it does to us, be sure to follow to the following steps:
1. Start Pidgin (isn't that obvious?) and go to Accounts => Manage Accounts.
2. Disable your facebook account for the moment by unticking it. Now, select it and click on 'Modify' button.
|Ok, the new home for most teens and tweens|
4. Now, go to the advanced tab. Select Connection Security as "Use encryption if available", set Connect Port to "5222" (without quotes), Connect Server to "chat.facebook.com" (without quotes).
|That was easy, right?|
Now, restart your pidgin, go again to Accounts menu and enable the previously disabled Facebook account. Hopefully this will work now.
