Bug Description

package version: 1:5.10.1-0ubuntu1 (i386)
release: Ubuntu 12.04

When Empathy starts, it displays an error dialog stating:

+----
| There was an error while trying to connect to
| the Telepathy Account Manager. The error was:
| Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)
+----

A similar error appears when I try to start Empathy from a terminal window:

+----
| folks-WARNING **: Error preparing Backend 'telepathy':
| Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)
+----

I notice that two files in /usr/share/dbus-1/service:
  * org.freedesktop.Telepathy.AccountManager.service
  * org.freedesktop.Telepathy.MissionControl5.service
both contain the following exec call:
  Exec=/usr/lib/telepathy/mission-control-5

When I try to execute that directly from a terminal window, I receive the following error:

+----
| mcd-WARNING **: Could not add client names match rule: Key 'arg0namespace'
| in match rule contains junk after argument number. Only 'path' is
| optionally valid ('arg0path' for example).
|
| GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema
| 'im.telepathy.MissionControl.FromEmpathy' is not installed
|
| Trace/breakpoint trap
+----

It appears that Empathy is unable to start Telepathy Mission Control. Googling has revealed similar reports, but mostly on Fedora, referencing an incorrect SELinux security context. I'm guessing that doesn't apply here.

I wrote in askubuntu about it. It depends from dbus and mission-control. Please help to solve it !

Why isn't this fixed yet? It makes the core experience unusable. I thought the core applications of Ubuntu should function correctly in a stable release?

This is another papercut bug. Same over here after 11.10 upgrade (amd64).

No offense at all and please dont take this personal:
I know that the most of you guys only volunteer to make Ubuntu happen, but shouldn't quality be important than release quantity? This is probably the wrong place for such a discussion, but 11.10 really makes me sad. After ~8 years on the Linux desktop and approx. ~4 years of Ubuntu I'm really about to leave the Linux desktop behind me. All those smaller problems, in addition to the really unstable and slow unity, simply suck.

Problem still exists on precise (amd64). Is there anything I can do to help fix this?

The issue here is that after installing telepathy-mission-control the glib schemas need to be recompiled.
One can do that himself (as root) using something like

/usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas

(Not sure about the exact paths on ubuntu)

Ideally that should be handled by the package though.
