to all KDE Telepathy users compiling from master - with today's changes
you must install new additional Telepathy plugin in order for KDE Telepathy
to work at all. This plugin is currently located at github[1] and will
move soon somewhere upstream at

This is a runtime-only dependency and it's a must have. KDE Telepathy will
work without it at all. I'll be adding it to kdesrc-build too. It requires
libmission-control-plugins-dev (or equivalent), libsignon-glib[-dev] and

For packagers, there is a find-package call in ktp-common-internals marked
as RUNTIME. There will be a release prior to KDE Applications 15.08 release,
but if you're providing nightly builds, you must include this new package,
ideally mark it as a hard dependency of ktp-common-internals.

One more note - if you're building Ubuntu's signon-ui by hand, it tries to
some files to /etc. These files must be present in /etc and not in any
other folder
otherwise Google authentication will not work; apparently this is a
signon-ui limitation
which I'll be looking into at some point.
