I opened Empathy, go to accounts (F4), it takes me to "Online Accounts" where I can choose between many account types, but there is no IRC. There is face, google, twitter....but no IRC.

Am I missing something?

sudo apt-get install account-plugin-irc 

to get irc account . after you can sign up your irc

    On Ubuntu 11.04, the IRC stuff for Empathy is inside telepathy-gnome – jmlnik Apr 17 '13 at 8:40

On 12.10 it seems like you need to install account-plugin-irc Install account-plugin-irc package to use IRC in Empathy. Perhaps this will solve the problem on earlier versions of Ubuntu (such as 12.04) as well.
