Troubleshooting
===============

I cannot connect.
-----------------

1. Check that you are still connected to the internet.
2. Double-check your credentials.
3. Check the :ref:`security settings <security settings>`, maybe your server does not support encryption, or only with weak parameters.
4. Maybe your DNS are wrong, try setting the :term:`custom_host` option with the server IP.
5. Overzealous firewall?
6. Running poezio with -d file.txt (debug mode) might reveal your issues.
7. Come see us from the `web client`_ to discuss your issues further.


The outline of poezio is not displayed and unicode characters are broken
------------------------------------------------------------------------
We believe we (or unrelated people) have reported the bug of python3 compiled against the wrong
ncurses to every_ significant_ distribution_ `out there`_, but if there is still
one with it, please go ahead and report it.

Poezio tracebacks with weird encoding errors
--------------------------------------------
Please check your locale for utf-8 compatibility.

Reconnecting sucks
------------------
We know.

Some weird graphical glitches appear once in a blue moon and go away after a refresh
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We know.

Python is too heavy
-------------------
We know. It’s too late to change that. If you are running your XMPP client on a toaster,
please try mcabber_.


Other issues
------------
Some things may appear in ``$XDG_DATA_HOME/poezio/errors.log``.
