How can I change both my display name, and avatar in Empathy Instant Messenger?

I appreciate any help.

  • Navigate to Edit > Personal Information. (if you're using Unity, the application menu is only visible if you hover the mouse cursor over the top panel.)

  • From here you may change the alias, or avatar of any account you wish. (your display name is known as an alias.)

  • Ah, I simply did not realise that the "File, Edit, ..." menu is detached from the non-maximised window in Unity. Thank you. – Erik May 3 '11 at 12:13
