Empathy not showing contacts on main window.

Asked by José Antonio Rey on 2011-01-28

I connect normally to my MSN Messenger account on Ubuntu. Then, my main window is empty, it doesn't shows any contact. I can start, read and answer a conversation normally. It's not because I don't have any contact online, because when I'm talking to a person who is online, it doesn't appears on the main window. Only people that I have added recently appear on the main window. I'm on Empathy 2.32.1.

Already done that, still nothing. MSN Messenger contacts aren't showing.

Other people (like I have) have been experiencing this problem. It's
just Msn. If you download the client for Msn then it might show up.
Pidgin I find, gives you the same problem. Sorry.

I'm having the same problem with my Yahoo! messenger account. So it's not just MSN.
