Hi folks, is there any way how to change presence status of e.g. google account by command? I'm using "Situations" and there is possibility to run command. So I think if there is some kind of command for changing presence I can use it.

The command line solution you're looking for is probably "mc-tool". I don't have access to any GNU/Linux shell at the moment, nor do I know if the utility is installed by default on SailfishOS, but I recall playing with it on my N900. Those were the docs from the Maemo days:

The status can also be controlled via dbus. See the full telepathy documentation:

If you find a solution, please also add it here:

That tool "mc-tool" is installed on Sailfish. I'm running Sailfish, and mc-tool version is 0.8.9.

Can't help with the actual topic, hope you'll find your way!

Yes I found sollution on ossi1967's link.

Just fill:

mc-tool request gable/jabber/google_2dtalk_4 offline

And you'll be offline. I'll try to add this to "Situations"
