Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Empathy, Evolution, Gwibber Don't Start Automatically Anymore

Apr 30, 2010

Just did a fresh install of 10.04, everything working great, and I was pretty excited about the integration with gwibber, evolution, and empathy. I was fiddling around, getting things the way I wanted them (startup programs and such), and upon a test restart, noticed that unlike the first couple of times I had restarted with 10.04, the Evolution icon no longer came up in the tray, and my "Me" menu was useless - didn't have me signed in to Gwibber or Empathy, didn't give the option to do so.

Yes, I can still run these programs no problem, and I could probably get it such that they ran at the start... but what I would like is for them to run minimized, in the tray, like they did the first time I booted up 10.04. Again, I trust this is a mere couple of lines in the command prompt, I just don't know what they are.

Ubuntu :: KDE/Plasma Does Not Start Automatically Anymore

Jun 13, 2011

After upgrading my husband's laptop to 11.04, KDE does not start automatically anymore. kdm (the log-in screen) appears. I select "KDE Plasma Desktop". But instead a kind of terminal appears in the top left corner. This console does not have window decoration. When I type startkde into it, KDE starts completely normally.

The same happens with a newly created user, so a misconfiguration in .kde cannot be the cause.

/usr/share/xsessions/kde-plasma.desktop is correct:


The metapackage kubuntu-desktop is installed.

I have tried reconfiguring and reinstalling various packages that I or others thought might be responsible:


GNOME was installed on the same computer, too, and caused some problems after the upgrade (instead of KDE being the default session, it was Unity, but no menus or control bars loaded). After trying all the things mentioned above, I uninstalled all GNOME/Unity-related packages to rule out they were causing the problem (according to that list: [url]). It did not help, even though for two packages messages appeared that sounded like they might make a difference:


I compared with


With my other two computers that work fine after the upgrade to 11.04, they also use startkde and kwin.

Ubuntu :: Gwibber And Empathy On Windows?

Feb 10, 2011

I am using Gwibber and Empathy for a while.

Does anyone know alternatives of the apps above, which supports Windows.

Note: Windows Live Messenger isn't such an option, because it doesn't support any other IM networks. And I don't know any Windows apps which connects to social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unlock Login Keyring When Launching Gwibber Or Empathy?

May 16, 2010

I'm not sure if this is the correct section to ask this question, so mods please move if needed. This happens with a freshly installed Lucid 64 bit, 2.6.32-22-generic kernel. Each time I boot into the system I get prompted for my password: "Unlock Login Keyring

Enter password to unlock your login keyring The login keyring did not get unlocked when you logged into your computer." At first I thought it was the wireless network problem, so I already checked my wireless as "Available to all users", but this didn't stop the prompt. Doing a little bit more of research, if I cancel the dialog without entering my password, I can access the web without any problems (so again it is not the wireless connection problem), but then if I try to launch Gwibber I get the prompt again (two times actually, if I press Cancel the first time), or if I launch Empathy as well (three times in a row if I press Cancel; probably it has to do with the fact that I'm logged into 3 different accounts, facebook, gmail and hotmail?).

Furthermore, this two nice pieces of sofware offer almost zero configuration options to the user, at least GUI-wise, so there is no checkbox for "Available to all users" or anything simmilar for the matter. For instance, in gwibber I have spell-check turned on by default and there is no way to turn it off. So I guess I'll have to tweak some configuration file in some obscure folder,

Ubuntu :: Empathy Conversations Don't Alternate Anymore

Jul 15, 2010

I remember that before, Empathy used to show my speech bubbles aligned to the right, and my contacts, to the left. Now it doesn't for some reason. How do I change it back? Or was I mistaken, and it was always like that?Also, just a quick question, is there no way I can change my display picture in Empathy? And how about the timestamp format to 24 hour time?

Ubuntu :: Evolution And Empathy Not Working Properly?

Jun 7, 2010

I recently upgraded to Lucid Lynx. I hadn't used Evolution before so I don't know what exactly is supposed to happen but its not showing any of my mails. I entered in my hotmail account but its just now showing any mails and when I click on Send/Receivet asks me for my password but when I type it in, it still doesn't work.Empathy is also not working properly. I could sync my facebook chat account with it but in the broadcast accounts option my facebook page just doesn't get updated.

Ubuntu :: Evolution And Empathy Autostart With Login?

Aug 4, 2010

Here's a neat trick on how to get Evolution and Empathy to start up when you log into gnome. This also hides Evolution to the Indicator Applet, the way it should be.

Install alltray
apt-get install alltray


Go to Systemreferences:Startup Applications and add the following

Name: Empathy
Command: empathy -h
Name: Evolution
Command: sh -c "sleep 10 ; alltray -na -nt evolution"

Ubuntu :: Integrated Gwibber Won't Start In Lucid / Get It To Work?

Unfortunately, i can't run "Set up broadcast account" when clicking the "letter-applet" icon. When running gwibber from terminal, I get this code...

Ubuntu :: Empathy Not Interacting With Evolution Envelope Icon Thingy?

Apr 22, 2010

When I got Ubuntu 10.04 beta the first thing I did was to uninstall Empathy as it was crashing a lot and I was used to some other application.Currently I want to use Empathy and reinstalled it.My problem is that instead of chat conversations "merge" with the evolution envelope icon Empathy seems to have it's own static icon. It's annoying because the icon is the same "green orb" whether I have a new message or not. The problem is not the version ( as a personal friend has the same version and has it working fine.I already searched google and forums and tried re-installing empathy, indicator-applet, indicator-messages or evolution-indicator, cleaning cache and all.

Fedora :: Gwibber Alternative / Installing Gwibber From The Last Stable Sources Gives The Same Crash?

Jul 23, 2011

I used to use Gwibber as social networks aggregator/client, but starting since last update (current version 3.1.0) it crashes miserably on both Fedora 14 and Fedora 15.

Gwibber team looks reluctant to provide any feedback on whether this shall be fixed in foreseeable future. Installing Gwibber from the last stable sources gives the same crash.

Ubuntu :: Remove Gwibber Status Indicator / Gwibber Status In The Panel While Keeping The Shutdown Button?

Mar 16, 2011

After a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 I uninstalled empathy (im using skype). The empathy menu in the evolution indicator was gone after that.I also uninstalled gwibber. But the gwibber status indicator remains within the about-me panel... Uninstalling the gwibber package also removes the me-menu which I want to keep actually. Especially the shutdown/restart... part of it. See attachment.I know there is a shutdown panel-app...but its butt-ugly and it doesnt allow to logon/off.

In another thread I read that the gwibber status shouldnt be there if no account for it is configured... which it is not... I do use ubuntu-one though which is in the same menu... I saw that this issue was addressed at some bug report before, but not fixed yet...

Does anybody know a good workaround to get rid of the gwibber status in the panel while keeping the about me and the shutdown button?

Slackware :: Native Resolution Isn't Automatically Applied Anymore

Apr 13, 2011

I use Slackware64 Current and since a few weeks, X doesn't automatically apply the native resolution (1680x1050) of my LCD screen, instead it uses a resolution of 1024x768.Since I bought this monitor in 2009, It had always worked as expected, and it's only since lately that I experienced this problem.After X has started, I can change the resolution through the kde tool but after an X restart everything is forgotten. Apparently, the correct resolution is detected but it is not applied.

My monitor is HDMI1.I don't use a xorg.conf file as it had always worked well this way, so I would like to track down this regression.I have an intel GM45 chipset.I have tried Mesa 7.9 and 7.10 in case.

Ubuntu :: Won't Start Up Anymore

Jan 17, 2011

I have this major problem with the latest version of Ubuntu (10.10). Since I applied this automatic update Ubuntu won't startup anymore.I am 99% sure it's something to do with the graphics drivers. I have an ATI Radeon HD5850. I can still boot up in safe mode in one of the older kernels of Ubuntu. But with the latest kernel I can't even get into safe mode.What I want to do now, is to remove all traces of any potential drivers and then reinstall them. What is the best way to do this?

Ubuntu / Apple :: OSX Doesn't Start Anymore

Feb 1, 2010

I tried to install Ubuntu on a USB HDD on my Macbok Pro 5.3. Everything seemed to be fine, but while rebooting the computer, OSX doesn't start anymore. So, I would say I erased the boot sector of the internal HDD or something similar but I'm not an expert. My internal HDD seems to be fine: One 200 MB FAT32 partiton partition labeled EFI and with the boot flag, One HFS+ partition for the system. I tried to boot with the Snow Leopard DVD and run the Disk Utility to make a "repair". The repair was fine, but the Mac still doesn't boot anymore. (Forget Ubuntu, it's only OSX related, I'll try again Ubuntu only when I'll be able to boot OSX again).
