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.

@Freso thank you for the explanation.

There is now also a chatty-beta package for those who want to be bleeding bleeding edge: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/chatty-beta

@bennyhillthebes gradle is needed to build the .jar file. This package actually builds chatty from its source, it doesn't just ship the precompiled source that upstream makes available (this would have been a binary package, recognised by the '-bin' suffix in the package name).

i am just a noob, but why do the package need gradle now and why the PKGBUILD fails? Isn't Chatty just a .jar file? Simply pasting over the old .jar is not an option?

Checksum of chatty-0.9.1.tar.gz is wrong. After manually correcting this, install fails with: /home/user/.cache/pacaur/chatty/PKGBUILD: line24: cd: chatty-0.9.1: file or folder not found

Remove the disable_version_check.patch please.

Not going to happen. If the package is outdated (like now), the version check will do nothing towards updating it, other than be in your way while you're running the program. You can install the upstream version in your $HOME if you wish to do that rather than using your package manager to install it system-wide. The changes from chatty 0.8 to 0.9 are too many that updating the PKGBUILD is as easy as updating the $pkgver, which is why it's taking a while.

I was using this for months without realizing it is an old version. Wouldn't display FFZ emotes anymore since a couple of weeks and I tried to find the cause.

I'm cleaning up the PKGBUILD a bit now, before updating to 0.9.1, but none of the patches from the current PKGBUILD seem to apply outright and 0.9.1 doesn't seem to build without the patches either. I need to look into it some more and probably switch to using the tools used by upstream (ie., gradle).

If anyone wants to discuss how to handle the package going forward, please feel free to contact me.
