Empathy Quick Fix for MSN as of 0ct.20, 2010

Good Morning,

    Just a quick fix note for Users of Empathy on Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10. (may affect other versions too)

    MSN made some changes that have prevented Empathy from connecting to the MSN network.

   Simply apply this fix below and it should begin working again.

 Thanks to Kakarato for the Quick fix.

and to Dennis Trinh for summing it up nicely.
I'm on 10.04 / Lucid. Just worked for me.
Go to terminal >
cd /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/papyon/service/description/SingleSignOn
sudo gedit
replace the line
CONTACTS = ("", "?fs=1&id=24000&kv=7&rn=93S9SWWw&tw=0&ver=2.1.6000.1")
CONTACTS = ("", "MBI")
should work. good luck.

This worked perfectly for me to correct the issue.

Hopefully it can help you too.
