    Ubuntu 9.10 IM compatibility on acer d250

    newbie here....sorry if this has been talked about. I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic on my Acer Aspire D250. Everything works perfectly OOB. Just a question...how can I get video and audio chat to work with either Pidgin or Empathy IM? My mic and camera work as I tested it with the sound recorder and I can see myself when I do a video chat. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hi,

    Video/Voice chat it's a fresh feature in the two IM you're using, so they got a lot of bugs.

    I make video calls trought empathy using my gtalk account, but the MSN is broken.

    Thanks! Yeah I jumped on the Mac bandwagon 2 yrs ago and love it. I wanted to put Mac OS on my netbook, but it wouldn't run properly so I decided to try ubuntu. Pretty good except for all the terminal stuff LOL. Anyway...do you have an acer d250 as well? I just can't get video/audio chat to work with either the two IM clients....not sure what to do since the mic and camera work....

    I'm using a EEEPC 1000HA with Ubuntu UNR 9.10.

    If you really need video chat you can give aMSN a try... and Skype too.
