Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are very sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner.

The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Oneiric Ocelot. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.

When I first click on the messaging icon and then on "chat" after starting my computer, te empathy icon appears for a split second on my dock before disappearing. I believe this behavior is caused by this bug. How can I test it now that apport is no longer enabled?

Empathy crashed on startup of Unity 2D in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Beta 1 (nightly build).

the people who are having this crash one of you mark it confirm and than one of you can upstream it and answer the developer there,, and share the upstream link here .

status: New → Confirmed

1) Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - just after a fresh installation and with all the newest updates

2) empathy: Installiert: 3.3.92-0ubuntu3
unity-2d: Installiert: 5.8.0-0ubuntu1

3) You just start a new Unity 2D session.

4) Within two minutes after the start, you have this bugreport coming up.

How to get this bug
Before this bug is triggered, you have first to logout from a Unity 2D session - and then start a new one from LightDM. Now within 2 minutes, you normally should get this bug and send here.
Condition: In the old session, you had empathy running, while in the new session you yet didn't start it. Sounds weird but is a fact.
The bug does not occure, if the Unity 2D session is the first one after a cold start of the computer.
