Pidgin: Google XMPP error

Hello. Can not connect to google and other XMPP servers. I receive message "Server does not use any supported authentication method". Other protocols work fine. Version of pidgin - 2.10.9 for Windows, Multilingual. How can I fix it?

I can't find anything about

I can't find anything about my question there. If PidginPortable 2.10.9 is outdated, where can I find actual version?

from pidgin.im

presuming i understand your q from pidgin
https://www.pidgin.im/download/windows/

as I said above, my 2.10.9 XMPP connections are OK

2.10.10 looks like a security rather than bug fix so i can't say why your XMPP connections aren't working, any solution will be in pidgin itself and nothing to do with the PA implementation

But when I install pidgin

But when I install pidgin 2.10.9 on pc normally, its work without any errors. It turns out that XMPP does not work exactly in portable version.

no-one is likely to help you when 2.10.10 is due soon

no-one is likely to help you when

a) 2.10.10 is due real soon now (being built as I write)
b) you have a working if non-portable install [1]
c) you haven't given enough detail anyway

I repeat, my XMPP connections are fine, maybe if someone else has the same problem they'll help you.

[1] why did you get 2.10.9 from pidgin rather than 2.10.10 ?

I found the cause

The error occur due to long path to pidgin directory. Pidgin work fine, when I put it to the root directory.

respect

you gain respect for saying that

do you think something in PA should be changed or something in Pidgin ?

that is from 2010 so unlikely to be related
