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.
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.
camorama application giving error "could not connect to video device (dev/video0) check connections".I am using Ubuntu 10.1 and intel webcam CS110. Also the webcam is not working on facebook/meebo live chat applications.
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.
I have got facebook chat to work in pidgin but I am having problems connecting it. When I first open pidgin it gives me an error it says at the bottom "You require encryption, but it is not available on this server." if I keep clicking on reconnect it will usually connect me at some point but it can take a long time I'm wondering on how to fix this. So that it will connect automatically
Although I don't face any problem visiting facebook,every time I try to connect to chat its impossible!!I get no explanation for that, but whenever I use another computer with windows I can connect without problem. what is going wrong with linux?
I have Facebook blocked in certain areas on my network. So certain machines cannot navigate Facebook. One other issue is chatting with 3rd party clients. How do I block that? Can I block a certain port on the firewall/router? I can't seem to find what Facebook uses.
i have a dual boot PC with Linux and windows 7. I have observed that facebook chat doesn't work properly when i use linux. and some sites dont open quickly or dont open at all.But there is no such problem in windows. What to do?
A number of Kopete bugs have appeared since I added Facebook chat with XMPP/Jabber this morning. Once I added it, Kopete took every regular & meta contact with a Facebook chat address and removed it from all the groups. Also, metacontacts were renamed to the name used on Facebook. This would not be a huge problem because I could simply move the contacts into groups and rename them, but every time Kopete is closed and re-opened it reverts back to how it was.
Kopete also forgets if I delete groups, because when I re-open the program they're back again. But those groups aren't related to the new Facebook Kopete account. It seems to forget all changes I make when the application is closed.
I just recently started using Empathy, and so far, it's great with one problem.As long as Empathy is online, my Facebook status (as others see it) is "available", regardless of how I have my status in Empathy. Kind of puts a damper on things when people think I'm being rude and ignoring them. Have others experienced this issue? Is this a user error, or something that needs to be fixed upstream?
a friend of mine is running debian and for some reason we are getting errors when we try to use the deb package on its google code page were there like some dependancies that we need to install first before doing it through the use of a deb package
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.
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?
