Use Facebook messenger with Pidgin

Facebook said that after some point after April 30 2015, they will shut down Facebook XMPP API — Facebook said API deprecation may take a few weeks — trying to connect to Facebook Chat using an application like Pidgin or Empathy will no longer work and will throw a connection error.

Today was the day when Facebook in Empathy stopped working in my Debian 8 Jessie.

How did I solve it?

I have installed pidgin and and also the gnome extension for Pidgin

Summarizing the installation of Pidgin, I just had to add a new line to /etc/apt/sources.list

deb /

And then run:

apt-get update
apt-get install pidgin purple-facebook

And for installing the plugin I just run in a command line:

mkdir -p $HOME/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
cd $HOME/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
git clone git:// pidgin@muffinmad

Then I pressed Alt+F2 and r (to restart gnome shell). Pidgin was then ready to add my new Facebook account under the protocol “Facebook” (don’t use “Facebook XMPP”)

Everything works perfect now (well, at least as good as before with Empathy, but now I’m using Pidgin)

Enable delete key in nautilus

Gnome 3 has changed the defult key combination for moving files to trash to CTRL-Del. To switch it back first install the dconf-editor.

Run the dconf-editor by pressing ALT-F2.

Tick the org -> gnome -> desktop -> interface -> can-change-accels option.

Now, in nautilus, select whatever file or folder, open the Edit menu and hover the mouse over the Move to Trash option. Then, with the trash selected, press the Del key twice. The first press clears the keyboard shortcut, and the second press assigns it as the keyboard shortcut.
You should change can-change-accels option to desable again to not allow accidentally changes
