I have stalled Skype for empathy but only outgoing messages work. When I try to chat to friends I can't see their messages.

How do I fix this?

You need to have Skype running already, in the background.

Unfortunately, Empathy is able to communicate with Skype only if it is already running.

Here is the website for the Skype to Empathy plugin.
