Description Barry Scott 2015-11-06 06:55:20 EST
Description of problem:

fter the F22 update I found that the instant messages (IM) client build into 
KDE stopped being able to log me in to google hangouts.

I use the settings online accounts to authorize the IM. But it still
reported auth problems.

Then I deleted everything in .config and .local to do with
telepathy (seems to have telepathy and ktelepathy naming of
files and folders).

I then get told that I need to "Configure Now..." by the IM client.
But adding an account via the settings online accounts does
not make the IM client happy. It still thinks its not configured.

May be I messed up the config? No problem I'll add a new user
to the system and use that fresh account to test IM.

The fresh account has the same problem.

IM client claims no config.
Configure successfully using online accounts
IM client still clains no config.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

KDE 5.4.2-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. useradd a new account "fred"
2. login as "fred"
3. Attempt to setup Instant Mesageing for google hangouts from the plasmashell system tray icon
4. Use the settings page setup google and authenicate it.
5. go back to IM client and see that it claims not configured still.

Actual results:

After config. IM claims not configured.

Expected results:

It is configured and cannot connect to hangouts
