Contact Merge function disappeared!

Asked by Rodolfo Gonella Diaza on 2012-09-06

Hi to all!

I have tried so search a solution to this for months.... without success!

The possibility to merge several contacts from different accounts has disappeared in my empathy! And this happened if I well remember a couple (or a t least one) Ubuntu Distribution ago (now I'm on 12.04).

What I mean is not that I try to merge contacts and nothing happens or I get some errors.... the "merge contacts" (I don't know if this is the correct menu name, because I use the Italian version) isn't present in the context menu when I right-click on a contact.

On the other hands, the contacts I merged months ago (before the menu disappeared) are still merged.

I use empathy from the official repository.

This is the output for "dpkg -l | grep empathy"
ii empathy GNOME multi-protocol chat and call client
ii empathy-common GNOME multi-protocol chat and call client (common files)
ii nautilus-sendto-empathy GNOME multi-protocol chat and call client (nautilus-sendto plugin)

This is the same for telepathy
ii gir1.2-telepathyglib-0.12 0.18.0-1ubuntu1 GLib Telepathy connection manager library (GObject-Introspection)
ii libfolks-telepathy25 0.6.8-2 Telepathy backend for libfolks
ii libtelepathy-farstream2 0.4.0-0ubuntu1 Glue library between telepathy and farstream
ii libtelepathy-glib0 0.18.0-1ubuntu1 Telepathy framework - GLib library
ii libtelepathy-logger2 0.4.0-0ubuntu1 Telepathy logger service - utility library
ii telepathy-gabble 0.16.0-0ubuntu2 Jabber/XMPP connection manager
ii telepathy-haze 0.6.0-0ubuntu1 Telepathy connection manager that uses libpurple
ii telepathy-indicator 0.2.1-0ubuntu1 Desktop service to integrate Telepathy with the messaging menu.
ii telepathy-logger 0.4.0-0ubuntu1 Telepathy logger service - Daemon
ii telepathy-mission-control-5 1:5.12.0-0ubuntu2.1 management daemon for Telepathy real-time communication framework
ii telepathy-salut 0.8.0-0ubuntu1 Link-local XMPP connection manager for the Telepathy framework

And finally, this is for folks (If I well understand, this is the library utilized to merge contacts nowadays)

ii folks-common 0.6.8-2 library to aggregates people into metacontacts (common files)
ii folks-tools 0.6.8-2 Telepathy backend for libfolks - database and import tools
ii libfolks-eds25 0.6.8-2 Evolution-data-server backend for libfolks
ii libfolks-telepathy25 0.6.8-2 Telepathy backend for libfolks
ii libfolks25 0.6.8-2 library to aggregates people into metacontacts

I Use 64bit version of Ubuntu 12.04

Thanks to everybody!!!!
