    Re: Empathy Facebook Issue in 12.10

    Basically, Facebook seems to have changed their authentication procedure very recently, and are redirecting to http instead of https (though this is invisible to the user), and Ubuntu developers do not support http in that module for security reasons.

    Either Facebook or Ubuntu developers will need to modify one line of code in either.

    Darn, and the user is bugged till then.

    The problem has not been resolved as yet.

    I am following the bug on launchpad, and a notification would pop up as soon as a workaround is found or a fix is released.

    Its a very simple one to resolve for the Ubuntu developers, since they just need to add http to the allowed authentication schemes for Facebook webapp, which most of them would have done on their systems, but at the expense of system security, so they are not releasing the fix.

    I have exactly the same problem. Indeed these problems really need to be fixed otherwise the bugs wil be a negative impression of Ubuntu.

    A Facebook developer says fix is ready and will be pushed out soon.
    So lets be hopeful.

    For now, I have been able to log in using Emesene. Make sure you log in using username@chat.facebook.com for it to work. Not the best solution but a temporary fix

    I tried adding my Facebook account using Online Accounts again and this time the login info popped up in the settings window instead of launching a browser. It is now back to normal.
