    Exclamation empathy: cannot edit custom messages.

    I have not been able to edit custom messages in Empathy since Ubuntu 11.10.
    Till Ubuntu 11.04 it worked correctly. Even when I set a custom status, it dows not appear in the 'Edit Custom messages...' window. I have to keep typing statuses, as they are not saved and will not appear in the list. If anyone else is facing this, please share a workaround to save statuses in some config file...

    melvin@melvin-pc:~$ empathy -v
    Empathy 3.4.2.3

    I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.

    Confirmed this is working in Fedora 16. Has it something to do with Unity? Or something telepathy that I haven't installed? I filed a bug, no response for several days

    Solved. It has to be saved as a favourite first (click on the star)
    I've been at this for 2 weeks now
