I am working o a script that will automatically change the Gnome Shell integrated chat/messaging status to "unavailable" when the screen is locked, or the gnome-screensaver is activated.
Anyone knows what is the terminal command that sets the gnome messaging system status to "available" or "unavailable"?
I have tried addons on pidgin and empathy, but it seems like the gnome messaging status does not depend on these.

got it to work! simple python script:
session_bus = dbus.SessionBus()
from gi.repository import TelepathyGLib as Tp
from gi.repository import GObject
loop = GObject.MainLoop()
am = Tp.AccountManager.dup()
am.prepare_async(None, lambda *args: loop.quit(), None)
screensaver_started = 0
running = 0
active = 0
out = ""
pid = 0
if screensaver_started == 0:
# Don't do anything if the screensaver isn't running
s = os.popen("pidof gnome-screensaver")
spid = s.read()
if len(spid) > 0:
screensaver_started = 1
h = os.popen("gnome-screensaver-command -q", "r")
out = h.read()
active = out.find("inactive")
if active < 0 and running == 0:
am.set_all_requested_presences(Tp.ConnectionPresenceType.OFFLINE, 'Offline', "")
running = 1
elif active > 0 and running == 1:
am.set_all_requested_presences(Tp.ConnectionPresenceType.AVAILABLE, 'available', "")
running = 0
this script will automatically set status to "unavailable" when screen is locked or screensaver is activated, and will bring it back to available (online) when screensaver is closed!
