Import an existing account

The first time you run Empathy, it will offer to import your accounts from other instant messaging applications. Currently, the only supported application is Pidgin.

  1. Run Empathy for the first time. An assistant will offer you a number of options to create new accounts.

  2. Select Yes, import my account details from and click Forward.

  3. Select the check box next to each account you wish to import.

  4. Click Apply.

It is not currently possible to import accounts after you have completed the first-run assistant.
