emesene on opensolaris

I've just ported emesene to opensolaris, why? Well, the people in the Argentina Opensolaris User Group thought it would be a nice idea and also, Mariano G. who is one of the developers working on that application happens to be a colleague of mine at work. In the presence of problems, he would of been easy to reach.

Needless to say, there was basically no porting. Disregarding the fact that I don't connect to the MSN or Live network anymore, this would be a nice to have for many as it's one of those few just works applications and has webcam support integrated. Did I say no trouble in porting? It's mostly python, that may be the reason.

Without further a due, if you want to try out the package on opensolaris, just click on this link and it will install using the package manager, just take into account that this is in the pending repository. If you happen to be an approver and want this in, please vote it into contrib!

So now for the screenshot

Hey anonymous, are you saying that you can't see a menu an emesene item under Internet, this may need a gnome-panel restart.

If what you're saying is that upon execution nothing happens, then get back to me and we can troubleshoot. In the meantime, you could try executing emesene on the command line, I might have missed a dependency.
