purple-facebook - Facebook protocol not showing


I just recently installed a fresh Leap 42.2 and I found about purple-facebook. However, it doesn’t look like it’s working. (the protocol Facebook is not showing when adding an account - just the old Facebook XMPP).

Any idea what I can check?


So did you install purple-facebook?

Well yeah, that’s what is in my 1st post.

Grabbed the 42.1 binaries here, worked like a charm.

Closing thread.
