Description David Edmundson 2012-06-18 12:37:08 UTC
qdbus --literal org.freedesktop.Telepathy.ConnectionManager.haze /org/freedesktop/Telepathy/ConnectionManager/haze org.freedesktop.Telepathy.ConnectionManager.ListProtocols 
{"mbpurple-twitter", "somsaks-twitter", "gadugadu", "zephyr", "groupwise", "icq", "mxit", "local-xmpp", "msn-pecan", "aim", "mbpurple-identica", "msn", "sametime", "myspace", "irc", "mbpurple-laconica", "jabber", "yahoo", "sip", "yahoojp"}

Still appears in accounts KCM list.

(I guess our protocol only checks for "has CM", not "has CM and that CM supports this protocol")

May be it has something to do with a 32/64bit missmatch? I have 64bit version of Kubuntu. I know that skype with version2 only provided a 32bit package. The new version of Skype for Linux comes with a 32bit packages which is disguised as a 64bit-package. So may be that is the reason why KDE telepathy has problems (but: It works perfect with pidgin).

May be a related upstream bug:
Comment 3 David Edmundson 2012-07-16 10:18:52 UTC
Found the bug:

when generating the list based on profiles we simply check the connectionmanager (haze) exists, however, not that this connection manager supports the relevant protocol

void ProfileListModel::populateList()
        //don't include profiles which we don't have a CM for
        if (! m_connectionManagerNames.contains(profile->cmName())) {

This logic needs to be improved.

> Check connection manager supports protocol listed in profile.
> This should fix the issue of skype appearing in the list when telpeathy-haze was installed but pidgin-skype was not.
> ConnectionManagers require having becomeReady() called before the list of protocols they support can be used, hence converting from a list of CMs to a hash of CmPtrs
