I see that no one responds to my posts about “telepathy”. This here is my 2nd post. The other being: KDE Instant Messaging signond not working with Google, Skype Lync
With the almost instant responses from moderators from my other questions posted here (which is remarkable in and of itself) I have to assume there is something a miss with this “telepathy” software and no one knows really how to fix it.
I have been going round and round with KDE bugs, KDE Neon forum, and Reddit and tried several distros and have yet to find a solution or a fully working Telepathy/Instant Messaging. It doesn’t work on any distro with KDE as the GUI.
I also see this is an ongoing on and off issue that seems to run all the way back to 2015. I have dug through Google searches and found very similar issues spread out over several years.
I will have to put it to rest because I have no further ideas and have found no solutions.
I did see one of the moderators on bugs.kde.org said its the
signond package which is fixed in “Upstream” and closed all the bug reports related to this subject but I have no idea how to implement this so…
Its a shame this doesn’t work since this service is super useful for someone who uses several messaging services and several accounts for each service…
There is a software package called “Franz” that works to replace this KDE embedded instant messaging service but it only allows for 3 accounts and you have to create an account with Franz then add your Google, Skype, etc accounts. If you want more then 3 accounts you have to pay money to Franz… I guess for now this is the only workaround I can find.
If anyone does find a solution please let me know. I wold love to get this working and have spent way to many hours days and weeks trying.
