My Empathy doesn't connect with Google Talk and Facebook. It worked for the first two weeks (after installation). I am using Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin).

  • Also, another similar empathy google-talk question. Please consider reading. I haven`t got a solution yet. link here! – Frantumn May 12 '12 at 15:56

With the facebook part, make sure you use the user name you have with facebook. This isn't your email. It's a facebook email. But you don't include @facebook.com To set one up if you haven't already. Go to account settings on facebook, and then there should be a spot to create a username.

(it will be at the end of http://www.facebook.com/userNameWouldBeHere)

Try using that, and see if it helps.


Almost sounds link mine. Already file a bug report since no XMPP services work after my upgrade.


Olá amigos. Dedico esta resposta para amigos Brasileiros que assim como eu, apanhamos muito para logar no facebook pelo Emphaty. Li este post em Inglês e consegui logar. O procedimento e muito simples. Segue a baixo o passo a passo:

  1. 1 -> Com o navegador vai até facebook.com 2 -> Vá em configurações de conta. 3 -> Em configurações de conta você encontrara na segunda aba, o tópico nome de usurário. 4 -> Apos ter visto qual seu nome de usuário volte ao Emphaty. 5 -> Quando for definir o nome de usuário você colocara apenas o nome de usuário, nada mas. 6 -> Depois coloque a senha padrão do facebook e pronto.
