Im on Ubuntu 13 now, whenever I open Online Accounts or Accounts in Empathy my accounts page comes up for a few seconds then closes, so I cant add accounts?

Tried restarting and running an update, still happens...

I have the same problem as of now. The program opens OK when my Facebook account is shown in Ubuntu Online Accounts. Then, if I click on my Google account, the program closes. If I run online-accounts-preferences, I get the following error: ERROR:empathy-user-info.c:252:fill_contact_info_grid: assertion failed: (spec != NULL) Aborted – Alexandre P. May 13 '13 at 2:45
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! This is a bug, and as such should be reported on Ubuntu's Launchpad project page, and not in Ask Ubuntu. Thanks! – InkBlend May 13 '13 at 22:54
