Thank you! One more Q, 'systemctl restart bitlbee' executes without error, but Bitlbee does not restart. Am I doing this right?

Just install purple-skypeweb-git

Strykar commented on 2018-02-07 23:12

Any chance this could support skypeweb instead of skyped/skype4py as suggested by Bitlbee devs? "The Skype API is deprecated and may have issues, such as losing messages You should use skypeweb instead." -

makepkg -A

Could you please make this available for the 'aarch64' architecture?

dequis commented on 2016-03-29 05:58

I thought I had done it already but I misread and it was armv6h, which i see you requested before...

Also I googled for a bit and apparently you can use "makepkg -A" to avoid the need of waiting for package maintainers to update their stuff.

can you add armv7h to the arch variable?

3.0.4 is when the bug was reported, not when it was fixed. It was fixed two months ago. 3.4.1 doesn't include that fix.

I am experiencing the same symptoms described in this bug:

The resolution is similar as well:
sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/bitlbee/purple/$user/certificates/x509/tls_peers/
sudo cp /usr/share/purple/ca-certs/* /var/lib/bitlbee/purple/$user/certificates/x509/tls_peers/
sudo chown bitlbee:bitlbee -R /var/lib/bitlbee/purple/$user/certificates/

This fix should have been merged into bitlbee's libpurple in version 3.0.4, and your package is on version 3.4.1, so it should contain the fix. I can submit a bug report to libpurple, but this seems to be a bitlbee issue, so I am leaving the report here.

Let me know if you have any issues reproducing this or questions otherwise.


It looks like the resolution is simpler than my fix, as per:
sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/bitlbee/purple//certificates/x509/tls_peers/
but chown_ing the folder is probably a good idea.
