After upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10, Empathy displays 'network error' when trying to connect to Google Talk. In 12.04 (and earlier versions), Empathy was setup and functioning correctly using Google Talk.
In Online Accounts, I have my Google account authorised with Ubuntu. I have tried removing the account and re-adding/re-authorising, but the result is the same.
I have also tried removing and re-installing Empathy (18.104.22.168) and Telepathy.
Is there a solution to this problem? Or a way to diagnose the 'network error' further? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
