Description Alan Schmidt 2012-07-09 10:28:09 EDT
Pursuant to https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=302972:

Without duplicating the entire thread of the bug above, it would seem that telepathy-rakia's account manager UI is a little bit broken. There is a thought that the following files should be present, but are missing:


There is a thought that these files might possibly have different locations in Fedora. However "locate ktpaccountskcm_plugin_rakia.so" and "locate ktpaccountskcm_plugin_rakia.desktop" do not find them.

Also, I don't seem to see anything that looks likely in a different location when I do "rpm -ql telepathy-rakia"
Comment 1 Brian Pepple 2012-07-09 11:16:29 EDT
Those files wouldn't be shipped with tp-rakia, but with the IM client (which looks to be the KDE client) that uses tp-rakia. I'm guessing telepathy-kde-accounts-kcm is the correct component, but since I'm not a KDE user someone more knowledgable can make sure it's assigned to the right place.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2012-07-09 11:19:40 EDT
Kde telepathy upstream asked me to not include rakia support (hence not included), since it was deprecated or that there were some better options.

I guess I'll have to ask them again.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2012-07-09 11:23:17 EDT

did I mess up here? :)  is rakia support worth including in our packaging?
Comment 4 Brian Pepple 2012-07-09 11:24:02 EDT
Rex, I think upstream might have got their wires crossed on this, since if I remember correctly telepathy-rakia replaced the old telepathy sip (tp-sofiasip).
Comment 5 Martin Klapetek 2012-07-09 12:04:13 EDT
You are both correct - telepathy-rakia deprecated telepathy-sofia, but it wasn't really supported because we (kde-telepathy) support only Call1 spec for audio/video calls, which was very recently added to telepathy-rakia, which we now support again, so ktp-accounts-kcm should again install files for rakia. But you also need telepathy-rakia-0.7.4 in order for it to work, the previous versions won't work.

Everything else in ktp-accounts-kcm should stay the same.
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2012-07-09 12:05:36 EDT
Yay, ok.  I'll fix up the packaging then.
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2012-07-09 12:07:44 EDT
Brian, i see f16 only has telepathy-rakia-0.7.3, can we get a 0.7.4 update there, or would you rather I add this support to f17+ only?
Comment 8 Brian Pepple 2012-07-09 12:38:27 EDT
Rex, I'm not sure we should push tp-rakia-0.7.4 to f16 since that would require an update to tp-glib from 0.16.* to 0.17.*, and that could possibly adversely affect gnome-shell, folks, etc which use it. IMO it's probably best to only support this in f17+.
Comment 9 Martin Klapetek 2012-07-09 12:55:50 EDT
Hmm, thinking about it now - not installing the plugins does not solve much, because we still provide a fallback ui in case the plugin wasn't loaded, because the account is still offered in the list of "add new account". So ktp-accounts-kcm could be patched to not offer creating of SIP account completely, I'm just not sure it's "the right thing" to do. Maybe a dynamic detection of installed packages, ie. "if (isInstalled(tp-rakia) && hasVersionAtLeast(0.7.4)) { addRakiaAccountToTheList(); }" could help here. I /think/ we already use packagekit to detect gabble/haze.
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2012-07-09 13:05:19 EDT
Brian, ok.

Martin, I added a dependency, Requires: telepathy-rakia  to ktp-accounts-kcm packaging.  chime in if you think that's ok, or whether you'd rather use something like the dynamic checking at runtime you mentioned.
Comment 11 Martin Klapetek 2012-07-09 14:09:36 EDT
I have no problems with a dependency on tp-rakia. In fact I favor it, there is already a dep on tp-gabble and tp-haze, right? So it makes sense to add tp-rakia there.

Comment 15 Alan Schmidt 2012-07-10 13:49:28 EDT
Got too excited and couldn't wait.

Downloaded update from:


The accounts screen for SIP now looks great and works great, and even connects.

Creating contacts for the SIP account seems to be an issue, but I think THIS item can be closed.

I thought maybe it was for me to close, but I got confused by the closed options, so I left it alone.
