Hi Laurent,

The ppa isn't really broken, but some packaging stuff changed.

Try "sudo apt-get install empathy". Memory fades quickly, but i think
that fixed it for me when i upgraded from the ppa. It will remove the
packages libempathy and libempathy-gtk, but that's normal as upstream
dropped them.

Kind regards,
