Thanks for you input, I'll make sure we'll take it into an account when planing the changes.

Btw. you can use per-account presence controls in contact list - open up the config file (~/.kde/share/config/ktp-contactlistrc) and edit the line
Code: Select all
selected_presence_chooser=global

to
Code: Select all
selected_presence_chooser=accounts


This will enable you to set per account presences from contact list. However this is an unsupported option and was left there only for testing, so please do not report any bugs or requests on this. Also note that all our components work on global presence basis, so for example if you have the auto-away plugin activated, it will set all your accounts to away, no matter what. Same for presence plasmoid.

This is great! So really all that is needed is to make this settable from within the application!

Not really, if it was we would have done it.
Fixing the underlying issues is on the roadmap for 0.5 though.

This is what seems to work for me:

Code: Select all
for account in `mc-tool list`;
do
    echo "$account had the connects option set to:";
    mc-tool show $account | grep Connects;
    mc-tool auto-connect $account on;
    echo "    now, it is:";
    mc-tool show $account | grep Connects;
done


It sets all accounts to connect automatically. Seems KTp sets them to connect on request or something.

It just needs to be run once - not on every boot.

Exactly this will be available in 0.4, which will be released in few days ;) You just set in System Settings to "Restore last presence on login" and you'll be online after every login.
