    Ubuntu 13.04 and Empathy

    Hi!

    There seems to be a problem with empathy and Facebook online contact not showing, the same problem with Ubuntu Gnome 13.04

    I tried with pidgin and same problem.

    I'm getting this same problem. I'm able to use FBChat via Empathy when people contact me, but my Facebook contacts are not displayed in Empathy.

    My Google contacts are displayed, though.

    Got the same problem.

    For me the contacts do show up for a short time when they first signon, or if they write me a message. Only Facebook accounts are affected.

    There is also problem with ICQ contacts, as well. What is strange, is that under XFCE or KDE empathy works, while
    anything gnome3, it does not works. So I guess this is related to some gnome3 supporting lib (as KDE and XFCE does not use gnome3).

    empathy is an unusable mess in 13.04, do yourselves a favor and use pidgin

    Pidgin is no better for me. It is a mess as well unless it became better in the final 13.04. I will try Pidgin again.
