I'm trying out Gnome-shell instead of Unity and loving it. Unfortunately I can't figure out where Empathy goes when I click the close button (there is no minimize button.) I'm still logged in because I still get chat messages from people, but I can find no way to open the list of contacts to chat with.
There's no icon in the bottom right pop-up tray for it unless I have a pending message, and I can't use that icon to get the user list. The only way I've found to get the user list is to launch Empathy from dash again.
My user name in the top right of the screen lists me as available for chat, but also has no way to open the list of people I can message.
I'm wondering if something went wrong in my Gnome 3 setup somehow that has caused this because I can't find any other people complaining of this specific issue.
