Yahoo! and Skype chat with Empathy

Post by francesco.sabayon95 » Fri Sep 07, 2012 13:35

Hello guys :D !
I have just installed the last version of Emphaty chat client !
How can I install Yahoo! and Skype supports in this S/W ?
Can I also use Tor proxy while I'm chatting (a week ago, I used Pidgin :) ) ?

Thanks :D

As far as I know, Yahoo support for telepathy is provided by telepathy-haze, which provides integration with libpurple, the problem is that it will bring on your system the whole pidgin messenger, thus it kinda defeats the purpose of having empathy installed.

I'm not aware of any skype protocol support yet, I believe this is due to the closed nature of the Skype protocol.

There is no Skype protocol but there sure is a Skype wrapper. What the Skype wrapper does is interrogating with Skype so you can logon/logoff and chat etc in empathy while Skype is running.
