I would like to create a quicklist for empathy including links to certain msn and facebook "friends" of mine. I already know how to make quicklists, I just need the command i have to use in order to start a chat window with a certain user.
Empathy itself does not seem to have any options to supply it with a username. I do not believe this is possible at the moment (and have not seen any reference while searching for any sort of plugin that can do this).
rinzwind@discworld:~$ empathy --help Usage: empathy [OPTION...] - Empathy IM Client Help Options: -?, --help Show help options --help-all Show all help options --help-gtk Show GTK+ Options Application Options: -n, --no-connect Don't connect on startup -h, --start-hidden Don't display the contact list or any other dialogs on startup -v, --version --display=DISPLAY X display to use
I would start with filing a feature request for this on launchpad.
