Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1025727
Can not log into Facebook Chat using X-FACEBOOK-PLATFORM
Last modified: 2014-06-18 03:43:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Due to changes in Facebook's XMPP server, Empathy can not authenticate to it using the X-FACEBOOK-PLATFORM SASL mechanism.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a Facebook account via Online Accounts panel in Settings.
2. Start Empathy and try to use the account that you added.
Empathy fails to log in.
Empathy should be able to log in.
I have built empathy-3.8.4-3.el7:
It should be able to log into Facebook Chat for accounts created via the Online Accounts panel.
Suggested method of adding account works just fine and I get connected to the account.
