Description David Edmundson 2013-09-09 13:33:29 UTC
Add contact dialog shows empty combo box for selecting account.
Comment 1 David Edmundson 2013-09-09 14:04:14 UTC
This is because canRequestPresenceSubscription requires Tp::FeatureConnectionRoster which isn't ever loaded in kpeople mode.

Non-kpeople mode should be unnafected.

Possible Solutions: 
 - upgrade the connections inside add-contact-dialog

 - manually query the connection ContactListInterface 
( connection->interface<Client::ConnectionClientContactListInterface>()->requestPropertyCanChangeContactList();

 - inside TpQt create a new feature FeatureContactListCapabilities. Fetch the properties if that exists, only process contactListState if FeatureRoster is also set. Make FeatureRoster depend on FeatureContactListCapabilities
 - disable the filtering?

I don't want to just enable FeatureConnectionRoster in the main AccountManager as that particular feature is the most expensive and we turned it off for a reason.

Fix empty combo box in "add contact" dialog

In Kpeople mode we never request FeatureRoster to reduce DBus traffic
fetching a roster list that we get from Nepomuk anyway.
The add contact dialog needs this in order to tell if a roster is editable.

This patch upgrades all connections.
