empathy doesn't connect to any account if Network-Manager isn't used.
The network interfaces are managed by /etc/network/interfaces on my system.
Regarding to empathy documentation, there are some gconf options to configure
the behaviour of empathy without network-manager. However there is no
apps/empathy in my gconf store, so the relevant key
apps/empathy/[use_nm|use_conn] is not available.
The GUI doesn't report any error. It endlessly tries to connect.
In the Debuglog, the following informations can be found:
connectivity_monitor_nm_state_change_cb: New NetworkManager network state 20 (connected: false)
Is your mission-control built with NetworkManager support? If it does, I think your accounts won't connect if you are not online in NM.
I updated https://live.gnome.org/Empathy/FAQ#How_to_connect_when_not_using_NetworkManager.3F
Hum actually MC seems to read Empathy's old gsettings key. Does this help?
gsettings set org.gnome.Empathy use-conn false
