    Re: Ubuntu 13.04 and Empathy

    empathy has stopped working for me yesterday too. i actually think there is a problem with online account.
    on the other hand, on 12.04, it works but it does not show the yahoo contact avatars.

    pidgin works good either on 12.04 or 13.04.

    in my opinion, empathy should not be installed by default in ubuntu.

    Re: Ubuntu 13.04 and Empathy

    I agree empathy should not be the default as I constantly get told to re-authorize both Facebook chat and Google chat and the authorization never works, but I do have problems still with Pidgin sometimes, just not as severe. I have still seen missing Facebook contacts, but I would not be surprised if that was a Facebook issue and not a Pidgin/Empathy issue.

    Completely agree, gtalk / facebook just don't work and no advanced settings anywhere...

    I had this problem too on Ubuntu Gnome. I was hoping to use the integrated chat thingie in Gnome Shell, but the contacts wouldn't show up for me either. Anyone want to file a bug report?

    Are you talking about the bug where it would just freeze upon opening? It was indeed totally broken due to a glib bug in most of the 13.04 dev cycle, but shortly before release an update was released that fixed it for most people (I think it still freezes if you use twitter, but with other accounts its working 100% reliable for me)

    in this moment, empathy seems to work fine.
    i wonder if tomorrow will work fine too. pretty sad that we deal with such a lousy piece of software.

    i will bump up this topic until someone finds a final solution to this mess.
    it seems to me pretty shame that such an important apps is so messed up.
    it behaves eraticaly. in this morning, it starts, shows the yahoo contacts with avatars, but on facebook, it requires authorization.....and when i ckick that, it opens online contacts app but i can not do a **** (pardon me!).
    sorry guys, but i am pretty mad!
