sudo apt-get install libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-vivid solves the problem for me (got vivid X11 backports)

Same situation here - installing libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-vivid solved problem. Maybe Empathy should have this package as a dependency?

Same for me. Fixed by installing libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-vivid. Please add that package as a dependency.
