Whatever method Google uses to become invisible, it does not work with gajim. Also, when I go invisible in gajim, status is shown as invisible, but I am not invisible.

Gajim uses privacy lists to become invisible, as described in XEP-0126. If gmail don't support privacy lists, there is indeed no way to become invisible, and we should make invisible line insensitive

I don't see why google can't just stick to the XEPs... Any idea how they implemented their invisible status in GMail? It looks like they simply do a <presence type="unavailable"/> but does not disconnect and then <presence /> to become visible again. But they only send that to gmail clients.

(In [15313305934edf2c6d58d5c1868c46b421caa4d9]) don't try the old (XEP-018) way to go invisible. It's not XMPP complient. That prevent to show the we are invisible but we are not. Fixes #4012

asterix, I'm not sure if that fixes the issue discussed here.

comment:5 Changed 8 years ago by asterix

I don't understand what you mean

comment:6 Changed 8 years ago by js

If I understood it correctly, the problem is that gmail *USES* presence type='invisible' and does *NOT* support privacy lists, or did I get it wrong? If so, [15313305934edf2c6d58d5c1868c46b421caa4d9] won't fix this at all.

I don't think gmail does that, it's not xmpp complient, and it's not what reporter said. I don't know what gmail do to go invisible

comment:8 Changed 8 years ago by js

Comment 2 sounded different to me, sounded like they are NOT xmpp compliant.

comment:9 Changed 8 years ago by asterix

I don't see why sending unavailable presence is not XMPP complient. It's what we do to become invisible. Read invisible XEP, it's the same.

Sorry, wasn't reading properly. Looked at the title and somehow read invisible there instead of unavailable. My fault, never mind. Sorry for the noise.

This still happens, I'm using hg version, and when I try to go invisible using my gmail account I get (D) gajim.c.connection Sending ERROR event to GUI: ((u'Invisibility not supported', u"Account xxxxxxxx@… doesn't support invisibility."),) but somehow gmail does support invisible status at least in their web client.
