Telepathy

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — alsuren @ 8:48 pm

Some of you may be aware that I have been messing about with a lot of projects based on telepathy. If anyone wants to see what telepathy is currently capable of, try (in gutsy):

sudo aptitude install empathy telepathy-haze
empathy

Empathy is a gnome-based front-end, which seems to work reasonably well. Haze is the libpurple (gaim) based connection manager (so it can connect you to msn, jabber and suchlike). There is also a connection manager called gabble, which is a dedicated jabber connection manager, supporting jingle voice/video (though the only client that understands video is the one on the nokia n800.)

(Cambridge prisoners should note that running tsocks empathy might not work as expected, because the connection managers are automatically started by dbus. Try tsocks dbus-launch empathy. That should work.)
