There are many opensource protocol plugins available for Pidgin, which can be used via telepathy libpurple, just need to have libpurple onboard :)

So, please build stable libpurple release for Sailfish.

P.S. protocols supporting libpurple: WhatsApp QQ Gadu ICQ Mailru and many other

+1,000,000!!! :) If implementation is anything like N900 & N9 that would be bleeding brilliant! :)

Seems to me the best way to handle other messenging protocols actually. Cheers!

Hello. I'm push telepathy-haze & libpurple to mer


Also you can just get spec from my github


Now we should wait when Jolla add packages to our repositories. But i'm build packages for sailfishos and deploy to my phone then manual configure icq by mc-tool. It works ;)

Repository for jolla http://repo.merproject.org/obs/home:/norguhtar:/haze/sailfish_1.0.2.5_armv7hl/

include binary packages for install

If you're interested, you can make this happen through the magic of open source.

The first step would be to package libpurple and telepathy-haze for Nemo. Freenode's #nemomobile IRC channel can help you figure out the details (you'll find me there as special) - you'd need to select the right versions, create rpm .spec files for them and any other new dependencies, get them building locally, then come to me to get the git repositories at https://github.com/nemomobile-packages and the right git packaging set up. Once the packages are in Nemo, they'll end up available in Sailfish releases automatically.

After that, you should be able to create a working account by manually installing telepathy-haze and creating the telepathy accounts via mc-tool. The next step would be to integrate it with the accounts framework and account settings, but that's a more complex topic I can address when it's needed.
