2009-11-08 09:16:14 Duncan Lithgow description Binary package hint: empathy Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) Empathy 2.28.1.1 Since I like to have my messenger clients running whenever I'm online I wanted to set that to happen automaticaly. So here's what I tried: * I looked in the preferences of Empathy, and appart from the confusing entry "Automatically connect on startup" described in bug #322314 there is nothing about connecting. * I looked under 'System > Preferences > Startup applications', there is no entry for Empathy so Itry to make one... * The file browser starts in my home directory so I assume there's a good reason for that and try to find an entry there for empathy. Sadly there's no entry there called empathy. * Luckily I know a bit about this Ubuntu thing and the Gnome Desktop so I look into the .gnome2 directory. Finally a directory called Empathy. But sadly that only has log files in it. * Thinking I'm a bit savvy I navigate to /usr/share/empathy ... but again there is no file I can point to to start empathy ... * Now I'm getting annoyed, nothing useful in /usr/share/gnome/autostart * Nothing in /usr/share/gnome2 Now I'm thoroughly annoyed and give up.
