When reporting a bug from a different machine, please set the "Version"
pseudo-header to the right version, and attach or send the info collected
by "reportbug --template empathy" on the machine that has the bug.
Otherwise, we can't tell which versions of packages you have.

I've marked this as "not found" in version and "found"
in version 3.8.4-3, based on you saying "testing" and "Empathy 3.8".
If your empathy package is older than 3.8.4-3, please upgrade to the
current testing version before continuing.

Please send the output of "reportbug --template empathy" on the kfreebsd
testing machine, so we can see what its dependency versions are like.

That video doesn't seem to exist any more.

It would be useful to see the debug log from running it as:


If it gets far enough into startup, this log file might contain personal
information (like your IM addresses or your friends' IM addresses) so please
look at it before sending, and replace anything you don't want to be public
with "XXXX" or something.

After the warning message, does your shell go back to a shell prompt, or does
the empathy process continue to run?

If it goes back to a shell prompt, please try typing:

    echo $?

and say what the output is. I'd expect either 0, 1 or something
greater than 128.

If it's greater than 128, it would be helpful if you could get a backtrace
using gdb. See <https://wiki.debian.org/HowToGetABacktrace>. The short
version is:

    $ sudo apt-get install gdb empathy-dbg libglib2.0-0-dbg libgtk-3-0-dbg \
        libclutter-1.0-dbg libc6-dbg
        gdb -batch -ex set logging on -ex run -ex 'thread apply bt full' \
        -ex kill -ex quit /usr/bin/empathy

That should produce logfiles "empathy.log" and "gdb.txt" - please send

Robert, thanks for looking at this. I expect this might be something
kFreeBSD-specific, so we'll probably need your help.
