How can I make Online Accounts display the "Chat" option for Facebook so I could enable it for Empathy again?

After upgrade from 14.10 to 15.04 there's only "Photos" option for Facebook in Settings -> Online Accounts so I can't enable "Chat". Facebook XMPP resource also disappeared from Empathy's configuration. Google account prevailed the upgrade without issue and is present in both above mentioned places.

  • This does not answer your questions, but be aware that the reason this was removed is probably because using Empathy or Pidgin (or any XMPP client) for Facebook will stop / may already have stopped working. developers.facebook.com/docs/chat – quassy May 23 '15 at 20:04

You can still open Empathy, go to the "Accounts" section and add a "Facebook chat" account type. That worked for me.

  • It isn't the same thing but I guess it'll do. – cprn May 11 '15 at 21:25
