Re: purple-facebook with telepathy

There is one more step that needs to be done - the plugin needs a config widget and a profile file to be added to telepathy-kde-accounts-kcm. Maybe one day someone will write this stuff and add it to the package.

Re: purple-facebook with telepathy

Sorry for necroposting, but here is what I've done to connect to facebook with telepathy.
Installed:
purple-facebook-git (AUR)
telepathy-haze

I've created two files:
/usr/share/accounts/services/kde/ktp-haze-facebook-im.service

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<service id="ktp-haze-facebook-im">
  <type>IM</type>
  
  <name>Chat</name>
  <icon>im-facebook</icon>
  <provider>ktp-haze-facebook</provider>
  <translations>kaccounts-providers</translations>

  <template>
      <group name="telepathy">
          <setting name="manager">haze</setting>
          <setting name="protocol">facebook</setting>
      </group>
      <group name="auth">
          <setting name="method">password</setting>
          <setting name="mechanism">password</setting>
      </group>
  </template>
</service>

and
/usr/share/accounts/providers/kde/ktp-haze-facebook.provider

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<provider id="ktp-haze-facebook">
    <name>Facebook</name>
    <icon>im-facebook</icon>
    
    <description>Chat account in Facebook</description>
    <translations>kaccounts-providers</translations>
    <plugin>ktpaccountskcm_plugin_kaccounts</plugin>
</provider>

That is it. After that you can add facebook to in Online Accounts.

The only problem is that group chats do not work sad. If you have any ideas how to fix it and where to dig, please let me know.
