View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.10 Empathy/Broadcast - not using proxy

October 11th, 2010, 04:17 PM
I have a system-wide proxy setup, but Empathy and the Broadcast accounts don't appear to be using it.

When I attempt to add a Facebook broadcast account it immediately comes back with 'Unable to load page.' When I try to setup an account in Empathy it also immediately fails.

Anyone have any suggestions? Or should this be listed as a bug? (Perhaps it already is.. I'll go check!)

Bump - has anyone else experienced this or found a workaround? I'm having the same issue.

This bug is still present in 11.04. "broadcast accounts" does not respect system wide proxy settings.
