1 Answer 1

I've found similar issues with both pidgin and Empathy when using the skype plugin (or other third-party plugins). Once, things seemed to go corrupt for no reason at all. I fixed it the same way in all cases: Deleting the configuration and re-adding my accounts.

For Empathy on Oneiric, the files are in the following locations:

  • ~/.mission-control/ directory (accounts configuration is stored here)
  • ~/.gconf/apps/empathy/ directory (this is where gconf-editor stores the empathy config)
  • ~/.config/Empathy/ directory (contact groups are stored here)
  • /org/gnome/empathy/ dconf tree (app preferences are stored here)

You can reset the dconf tree to system defaults with the following command:

dconf reset -f /org/gnome/empathy/

Resetting the dconf tree and deleting (or renaming) those directories will almost certainly allow Empathy to work correctly once again. Once you have a functional app, you can add accounts one at a time, and see where the trouble lies.
