#862 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Need UI or automagic scheme to switch on salut mode

Reported by: martin.langhoff Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: GPA
Cc: gdesmott Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Needinfo

Description

Right now, if you remove the jabber server setting, Sugar will switch from attempting to use Gabble to Salut.

This should work via a switch, or automagically.

One automagic way could be

1 - Check whether there's a loca xmpp service via DNS-SD. The XS or any other XMPP server can provide said DNS-SD data.

2 - Attempt to use jabber.sugarlabs.org

3 - Fallback to Salut

Even when #2 works, it might be worthwhile to have a UI to switch to Salut for a local group of users.

I don't think this is really a telepathy issue.

Martin, you know that the presence service launches both connection managers and then if gabble succeeds to connect closes salut, right?

Am I correct that you want another way to do the same as is accomplished by deleting the jabber server in the control panel?

Related to or potentially even dupe of #833.

  • Keywords GPA added

I believe Salut = no Jabber.

If so we did run in to this at GPA. The solution was to delete the jabber server in the control panel as described. A little annoying but not insurmountable.

Would be nicer to have a button saying "no collaboration server" or "local collaboration only" or something like that. Nice to have but not critical.

Thanks,

Greg S

I think this is duplicate of the request for the ability to see and more clearly control whether Sugar is using local and Jabber collaboration.

Are those requests more clearly layed out in other tickets? If so I think we should close this one.
