I'm experimenting with a $libpurple_client status plugin for
traybar-less, or, God forbid, CLI users. In particular, I'd like to get
which conversations have unread messages, through D-Bus. The following
in my sh script interacts with the client:
purple-send PurpleConversationGetData int32:$conv string:"unseen-count"
It works fine with Finch, but Pidgin returns 0 for every conversation in
I run Pidgin 2.5.2 from the Archlinux repository.
According to Google, Pidgin used to set this field, too. Maybe the name
was changed? Or is there another way to do this?
Whether there are any new messages would be enough, the unseen
conversations would be just an extra.
