[SOLVED] Skype contacts not visible anymore in empathy

Hello everybody.

I'm used to have my skype contacts in empathy thanks to telepathy-haze and skype4empathy.
But since the gnome 3.8 (and so empathy) update, that doesn't work anymore. It appears that the problem is with telepathy-haze, as all the protocols it provides have disapeared in empathy accounts panel.

Does anyone know a workaround, or will I just have to wait for an update ?

I seem to have the same problem.

I have 2 XMPP (jabber) accounts that connect and work fine in empathy.
But 1 msn (hotmail) account in empathy that's causing issues.

I'm unable to configure any of my accounts in empathy, and none of my msn contacts appear.
When using Pidgin, all accounts work fine.
I've installed papyon (papyon is the library behind the msn connection manager: telepathy-butterfly.)
and telepathy-haze (A telepathy-backend to use libpurple (Pidgin) protocols.)

It was working fine in gnome 3.6 a few days ago before upgrading to gnome 3.8.

I've also tried re-installing empathy and all relevant telepathy packages.

And I'm not too sure how or if I should file a bug report for this, so I'm happy to use pidgin for the moment.

Eventually, the problem comes from glib2, not telepathy or empathy. Updating glib2 to the testing version solves the problem.

Agreed, the non-testing update for glib2 I received yesterday has also fixed the problem for me smile
