“Welcome to Empathy” window

The “Welcome to Empathy” window should appear the first time you launch Empathy. It should be a normal window, not a floating window or dialog, and should be closable either from the close button in the title bar or by pressing Ctrl+W.

On the first page, the list of import and protocol options should be focused by default.

In the list, importing your settings from Pidgin should be presented as the first option, alongside all the IM protocols, and it should be selected by default if Empathy has detected Pidgin settings in your home folder; otherwise, Jabber should be selected by default. In the list of protocols, Jabber, Google Talk, AIM, MSN, QQ, and Yahoo should be listed first and should all be visible without scrolling. All other protocols should follow in alphabetical order. The scrolling list should be wide enough so that, by default, part of one of the protocols is only half-visible at its right edge, so that the list is more obviously scrollable.

The commit button should be labelled “Done” if you have selected “Pidgin” and Empathy already knows where the Pidgin settings are, or if you have selected “No, I’ll just chat online with people nearby for now”. Otherwise, the commit button should be labelled “Continue”. Whenever the button changes label, it must not also change width; it should always be wide enough for either label.

The first text field should be focused by default.

“No, that’s all for now” should be selected by default. Whenever it is selected, the commit button should be labelled “Done”; when “Yes” is selected, the commit button should be labelled “Continue”.

The page for setting up subsequent accounts is the same as the page for setting up the first account, except that it includes the protocol selector from the first page, this time without the “Pidgin” option. Again, “No, that’s all for now” should be selected by default, and the rules for the commit button are the same.
