Ubuntu :: Facebook Chat In Empathy?

Mar 3, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Empathy Group Chat Over MSN?

Oct 14, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Webcam Error With AV Chat

Apr 23, 2011

I've got a Toshiba Satellite a505s6020 that's been running ubuntu 10.10 flawlessly for some time now. However I've come across something I can't figure out. My laptop has an internal web camera, but I'd like to use the Microsoft HD lifecam here > [URL]. The microsoft usb cam works just fine in skype, and what gets me is the chat rooms "options" let's me select the usb cam, but still runs the internal. Other than disabling the internal? I'm all for disabling the internal if It'll make the USB one work in the chat.

Ubuntu :: How To Install QuickCam Chat

Sep 28, 2010

I have (finally) been able to install Skype. I have a QuickCam Chat (M/N v-uap42) and I have the installation disk for windows with all the drivers on it. I have converted my machine to Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. It has an Intel Celeron M processor.

All of the explanations I'm finding are telling me to put stuff in the terminal window with the assumption that I know what they're talking about it. I don't know what a kernel is or does or how to find out which one I have. I don't know what a tar is or does or how to find one. I'm looking for a simple 'for dummies' type of explanation on how I can get my webcam to work. Any suggestions?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Video Chat On Any Software

Jan 4, 2010

I have a very annoying problem: I can't seem to be able to video chat. Not on aMSN, not an Skype... I'm sure that my camera works because I can take pictures using Cheese. However, when I establish a connection on aMSN or Skype, the other person only sees a white screen instead of my face. (I've already installed farsight2)

My webcam is a Hercules Classic Silver.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Create Video Chat App

Jan 11, 2010

I have been tasked with the job of finding a way to create a video chat application on Linux to use with our health software. We are basically just wanting to add a video / audio component to the system. I have been using Ubuntu a long time and have decided to use it as our platform for the new software. We currently use Emblaze VCON with our software on Windows and I want to eliminate the need for Windows completely. We supply the hardware so if I can get good quality video chat integrated into our software then I am all set.

I have been playing with some apps like vlc, cheese and luvcview. I am quite impressed with the video quality I am getting so I know Linux can give our users a great chat experience. I even tried Skype 2.0 beta and that worked great too.

I see the software working just like Yahoo or MSN does. I provide a list of users and whether they are online and when you double click on their name they get a ring and prompt to accept the incoming call from "Joe". If there is an engine already in place that we are free to use and bundle with our paid product then that would be great. I am really ignorant on GPL licensing so I want to be careful on what we do. Also, I think this method is best for the connection... I like the idea of a server which receives input from all clients and tracks their online status but when you make a call to the other person it communicates p2p style to minimize hops and server load. We will be controlling the firewalls on the hardware but not what this hardware may be behind, ie. Router - so I guess I need something that can tunnel through / around such obstacles.

I would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction on what I could use to do this and also not have to worry about licensing and Intellectual property violations. Btw, I don't see the need to modify the software if it can handle the p2p chat out of box and do it well. I will write the components to handle online / offline status if the "engine" doesn't handle this.

Ubuntu :: No Programs That Allow For Voice Chat On Gyache?

Nov 14, 2010

I am brand new to Linux (Ubuntu 10.10 is what I use), and always used Yahoo Messenger back when I had Windows. Why are there no programs that allow for Voice calls to individual users? (not chat rooms, as I greatly despise them, but calls from one user to another) I was told Gyachi has that, but everything I tried does not work. Pidgin doesn't allow for voice chatting either, and the only version of Yahoo messenger that is available for Unix is extremely old and outdated.
