yeah, same here. thanks!
<this worked for me as well. as a complete NOOb using the command line, can someone explain exactly what I just did? LOL
if i had to make an educated guess, from the bits i gathered, it closed part of the application..
Thanks very much - the python-msn worked for me
RIGHT OK EVERYONE LISTEN
I have no idea why, or wtf happened?
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10
It's some funky s***, I'm still coming to grips on how to use it, then I discovered the problems with the whole using empathy for facebook chat and windows live chat and tings.
looked at some forums and fixed fb chat, but managed to get windows live working
for FACEBOOK CHAT, you simply need to make sure you've created a username (not email address) login, you can do this in empathy, it says if you don't have a username click here blah blah blah ok.
MAKE SURE you then log into facebook using that username
empathy should then work.
Now...I'm sure you all know that anyway, it's on like loads of forums lol
but windows live
here's what i did
Firstly, whenever i used it, it just got stuck on connecting and never actually connected.
Then, i tried copying the port and server and put it into jabber, then logging in with that...didn't work
Did the same with google talk...didn't work
Then, for some retarded reason i accidentally changed the port like 3 numbers up
my port is set at 1866
I don't know why it works because I'm not a computer techie madman like a lot of you's are
But it just did.
I hope this helps guys, you know i just registered to this forum because i saw no one had a like....easy answer to it and i was like "OMGOMGOMGOMG TELL THEM!"
I'm really loving this whole Ubuntu shiz
Well, this actually solved the problem permanently:
Remove telepathy-butterfly and its dependencies.
sudo killall telepathy-butterfly
sudo dpkg --purge telepathy-butterfly
sudo apt-get install telepathy-haze
Reconfigure your MSN connections and attempt to activate them. You should experience no additional issues.

Bite my shiny metal ***!!!
Removing telepathy-butterfly and installing telepathy-haze solved it for me. I had to remove the old account from Empathy and set up a new one.
The killall telepathy-butterfly method did not work.
