View Full Version : [ubuntu] indicator-applet and empathy

October 31st, 2009, 10:39 AM
Is there a way to remove empathy or anything from indicator-applet list? I still use pidgin and this empathy entry annoys me, besides I can activate it by mistake.

sudo apt-get remove empathy

If you are happy with Pidgin, there's no reason to use Empathy. However, GTalk voice works in Empathy, but (as far as I know) not in Pidgin.

That is not solution. Of course it would work for me since I am the only one that uses my computer, but if you assume that I have many users that is not the case.

sudo rm /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications/empathy

This would remove it for ALL users though.
