i know that using pidgin software, i can use yahoo chat...but i can chat only with my contact friends (those, whose email id is in my contact list)how to use chat room for chat ?is it any other software(similar to pidgin) which supports chat room ?
I am having a tough time trying to get Empathy to download a list of rooms. Typing /list does nothing in Empathy's join room. How the hell do I get the IRC room list? I'm about ready to go back to a dedicated IRC client.
i got my facebook chat working in empathy, but for some reason i can not add my friends from this protocol into a custom group. I have my gmail contacts in a group, and my aim buddies in a group, allowing them to be minimized, but i cannot get my facebook friends to go into a facebook group for some reason. I can right click the friend, and create a new group called "Facebook", but the friend will not move to the group when i hit close.
After upgrading to 10.10, the newer Empathy (or possibly telepathy-butterfly) doesn't seem to be allowing me to create a group chat over the MSN network.
It has always been a little cumbersome compared to other clients (open a chat window with one participant, select Coversation | Invite Participant, type in their name, add...repeat for each participant). But now the "Invite Participant" menu item is always disabled. I've tried removing/re-adding my account, rebooting, and a few other things, but no dice. Lots of googling doesn't turn up anything current.
Is anyone else having this issue, or is this isolated to my setup somehow?
I'm an Ubuntu user and I always chat on Yahoo, MSN, Gtalk and Facebook accounts using Empathy (with the fact that there is no better alternative; pidgin is heavy for me). I have noticed long earlier that all the chat histories are saved. However, just today I discovered that I couldn't delete those histories. Hitting the clear option from the right click fly out menu doesn't permanently remove the history. I can see them again when I try to look for previous conversations.
I believe there is a way to permanently remove chat histories from Empathy.
i have a gnome debian squeeze fresh install. this new release is perfect except for one problem i am having. the sound will not work in empathy when i receive a message from somebody. i have it set to do this in the settings and i am sure that my sound works because i was watching videos before. when i run alsamixer, all of my channels are not on mute. is there a package that is missing from my system that i might need? i tried researching this but i could not find any help.
I have tried to migrate my empathy settings and chat history to another machine.I copied .config/apps/empathy .local/share/empathy .mission-control .gconfig/app/empathy...But the new empathy do not recognize these settings. What am I missing?
I've got a problem occurring with my openSUSE 11.3 // GNOME Empathy Chat Client. When I try to connect to my Facebook account, my client tells me that I have a Network Error. Last time I used the client at home, it worked perfectly fine, but when I'm at work it doesn't.
Now, you guys may say that my work's network may have ports blocked, or the firewall is blocking its use in some way, but I find that hard to believe. My reasoning? I am able to connect to my Facebook account thru Empathy at work on my previous Ubuntu 10.04 system with no problems. I have also been connected to the same chat accounts this whole week on my openSUSE 11.3 // KDE 4.4 Kopete chat client.My Empathy connects to my Skype with no problem also. So, do any of you have any ideas that could possibly solve my issue? I love being connected to my Facebook chat at work because I don't see anyone nearly as often, and it's a great way for me to keep in touch with them.
When an msn contact pastes a multiple line piece of text(couple of lines or more) into their client and sends it, the message fails to display in my empathy chat window. If the window is not focused there is a notification for the message, consisting of '...' in the notification bubble, but no text appears in the window. The same thing happens(or rather doesn't happen) if the window is focused but without the notification.
However, if I look in the chat history for that conversation the pasted text shows up where it should. I noticed this 'problem' in Empathy in karmic previously, so I'm not sure whether it is a bug or a feature, which is why I ask here rather than making a bug report. Using Lucid updated earlier today. This doesn't happen in pidgin, and it's quite annoying, but I would like to keep using empathy.
I'm currently using Ubuntu Natty and have noticed a severe lag - sometimes upwards of 30 seconds - when opening a conversation window in Empathy. Is there anything that I could do to speed it up a bit?
1. My status selection has disappeared from the contacts menu (See #1 on picture). This lead me to a desperate search on how to delete/reset any config files for empathy. Tried to complete-remove and then reinstall it. This though didn't remove the settings or repair the glitch but instead led me to my second problem.
2. After reinstallation, this redundant little notification icon appeared (See #2 on picture). Cute... now how do i get rid of it? how to reset any empathy settings (problem one would at least solve then... I would presumably think?
Sugegstions for a good empathy protocal I have empathy installed on one of my Linux and a friend with the same setup. We would like to video/audio chat though empathy together. Although there are a few protocols to choose from. Are there any recommendation on one that is stable and reliable???
Sometimes when I start empathy the menu is missing. I've had globalmenu installed but I've removed it and set it so that the menu is showing in the window anyway. But that might still be causing problems--I don't know. Is anyone else witnessing this behavior?I notice that hen I open programs in a terminal I get the msg:Code:Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "globalmenu-gnome": libglobalmenu-gnome.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directoryIf it were a bug globalmenu caused, I find it odd that the problem has only occurred with Empathy.
Just loaded 9.04 side by side with XP. HDD says it has 138 of 149 remaining....When I try to load updates in Ubuntu it says there is not enough space on HDD. Did I make a mistake loading side by side? Updates are many, so I also wonder if I can choose the ones I need.that is.....once I recognize what the hell, individually, they are.
I am a Linux Noob of the major kind.I have an MP3 player that is owned by root. I have a SANDISK it in also. I can copy files to the player despite it being owned by root but I can't copy them to the SANDISK which is also owned by root. So what is suppose to be after the colon?How do I determine what that is if it is a directory?How do I change to root to change ownership if that is what I need to do?Is there an application that I can use to change ownership easy and what user do I have to be to do that.

Ladies and Gents, I am new on this forum. I have installed Ubuntu on my box and have been using it for over 2 weeks now. I have been trying to setup G-mail chat or Facebook chat and it just keeps on saying "connecting - Disconnecting" without anything happening.
