For users who have used this PKGBUILD on version earlier than 0.9.x, note that from PKGBUILD 0.9.1-1 onwards, the PKGBUILD will not include as many patches as <0.9 PKGBUILDs did. One of the things this means is that the configuration will now be read from $HOME/.chatty instead of $HOME/.config/chatty. I'd recommend to either create a symlink (cd $HOME && ln -s .config/chatty .chatty) or move (or copy) the directory (cd $HOME && mv .config/chatty .chatty) prior to running version 0.9.x+ the first time.

hi I just like to mention, that many java devs (including me) prefer the gradle wrapper script over a global installed gradle. Therefore it's possible to remove the gradle dependecy and simply invoke the build steps with ./gradlew instead of gradle

I'm not sure where I should post this since it involves Awesome WM but...

Using Awesome WM I'm trying to make Chatty always with start in a specific position and size. The position parameters are working as intended, but Chatty doesn't care about the W and H dimensions, it always start with the last dimensions bypassing the ones I putted in the rc.lua

PD: One weird thing is that every time I'm changing the window size it also moves, always in a bottom right direction. This is annoying but not a problem, I'm mentioning this just in case it is related to the possible issue.

java-environment is already a make dependency and it is theoretically possible to build and run the package with a different JDK than OpenJDK 8 (though admittedly I haven’t tried). If you fail to install and/or run it with OpenJDK 10 or 11 or Oracle’s JDK (currently 14), please submit bug reports to upstream. (Note that this is in accordance with and what upstream themselves specify ("It runs on […] Java 8 or later.").)

Please add 'jdk8-openjdk' as make-dependency to make installation easier.

jdk8-openjdk is an explicit make dependency and needs to be installed

@troyBORG That's how to fix your problem

Just a caution, this doesn't work with the current "jdk-openjdk" package (Java 13). If you install this package when prompted, you will get the following error: = = = = = FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

@Freso thank you for the explanation.

There is now also a chatty-beta package for those who want to be bleeding bleeding edge:
