It's been a long time since I post a useful post to my blog readers. In this post, i will try to make a post based on latest news for Karmic Koala development. There are several on going discussion regarding this issue where there are request for next release of Ubuntu(Karmic Koala -Codename) to use empathy instead of pidgin as default IM client.
Below are some links regarding the discussion:
- Edit your APT source.list and add the following line:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/telepathy/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
- After adding the ppa link into source.list, you might need to import the key. To add the key please use command below:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com FA3A1271
- Then update your source by doing sudo apt-get update.
- To install the empathy, please type sudo apt-get install empathy
- This will install the latest version of empathy on your machine. To enable the Adium theme to be use on empathy, you need to also apt-get install libwebkit-dev to meet the requirement. If not, the default theme will be use instead.
