    Question Empathy chat indicator won't go away.

    After running Empathy and quitting the program, the normal power button icon on the upper right taskbar has been replaced with a chat bubble also seemingly allowing me to change my status.

    1. Is empathy still running, and if so how does one close it completely.
    2. If not is it a bug that it still acts as if it running?

    Example: [See Attached]

    Thank you.

    Did you hit X or Buddy>Quit?

    I selected the Chat>Quit
    I don't have a menu option for 'buddy' also, I am running karmic.

    It is different from the Green Icon that sits in the 'tray' it's the icon to the absolute left of my username.

    I think it's a bug. On mine it takes a minute to change status on the panel, but I don't turn it off unless I turn off my computer.

    You could try this though: Right click on your desktop, select "Create Launcher" Leave it as Application, the name could be something like "Close Emapthy" The command would be "kill -9 empathy" without the quotes. That might help.
