Speed up Google apps account login with Empathy chat client in Ubuntu August 3, 2011

Filed under: Linux — Rupert Bates @ 10:25 am

When I first set up the Empathy chat client to connect to my Google apps account it took a ridiculous amount of time to load the contacts, usually over 10 minutes, and this was every time I logged in.

By changing the settings on the account though I got it to work pretty much instantaneously.


Login ID: your email address
Password: your password

Under advanced settings:

Check ‘Encryption Required’ checkbox
Resource: Home
Server: talk.google.com
Port: 5223
Check ‘Use old SSL’ checkbox
