I've got a request for this package. to get your PSN ID to register a system, chiaki includes a python script called "", but this package doesn't include it from the source. Can it be added into the package, since it isn't possible to use chiaki without it?

@moonbone sorry for addressing this so late, been slacking a bit wrt checking my e-mail. Fixed.

Seems like the download link was changed to source=("$url/refs/download/v$pkgver/$pkgname-v$pkgver-src.tar.gz")

It seems building on Arch is currently broken. This is now fixed upstream:

If you're having issues with audio stuttering. Might be worth adding to desktop file.

thestr4ng3r commented on 2019-11-24 10:46 (UTC)

It's fixed on master. If you want to stick to releases, you can mv /usr/share/icons/hicolor/512x512/chiaki.png /usr/share/share/icons/hicolor/512x512/apps/chiaki.png as a workaround.

realy nice work!!!

@fettouhi The desktop icon's currently being installed under /usr/share/icons/hicolor/512x512

fettouhi commented on 2019-11-20 21:44 (UTC)

@rgcv Under what path is the icon installed?

rgcv commented on 2019-11-04 11:22 (UTC) (edited on 2019-11-04 11:22 (UTC) by rgcv)

@fettouhi indeed it is installed, (EDIT: and so is the icon) under the hicolor 512x512 resolution folder. I'm guessing some desktop environments aren't picking it up because they aren't looking in that path for it.

One way around it is inline the absolute path into the desktop file, which could be done via a patch I could supply. However, I'm not so sure that is the most appropriate solution. Feel free to leave suggestions, draw opinions, either for or against my proposition.

fettouhi commented on 2019-11-03 07:00 (UTC)

@rgcv maybe the issue with the missing desktop icon is a bug? Becuase I can see the installed desktop file in /usr/share/applications

rgcv commented on 2019-10-23 23:20 (UTC)

No problem! Glad to know you managed to get it working. And we're always learning, that's totally fine! Better than stagnating, or refusing to learn outright, I suppose ;)

LinuxScouser commented on 2019-10-22 23:37 (UTC)

Thanks. Totally something I should have done but I'm gonna put it down to stuff I'm still learning. I actually ended up uninstalling the package, cleaned the cache and build files and then reinstalled. That all worked then.

rgcv commented on 2019-10-22 20:11 (UTC)

Hello everyone!

Sorry, been a bit inactive. That and Outlook likes to flag e-mail notifications as Junk, so some comments go by me unnoticed. I'll try and address whatever issues may still be present ASAP!

@LinuxScouser have you tried clearing AUR package cache? I made a mistake when updating the checksums when releasing version 2 of the package.. You might have some left-overs laying around. Shouldn't be happening anymore.

@fettouhi @Blaiz0r I was under the impression that the install target in the build system installed both the desktop file and the icon it uses. Upon checking, I can confirm it does so. I might be able to bundle a patch that hard codes the path in the desktop file, though I would imagine it wouldn't be necessary.. I'll get on it when I get around to it. Thanks for pointing out! Completely missed it, using i3 ;)

I noticed the desktop icon isn't found on Gnome also, I manually updated my chiaki.desktop file to use

Hopefully the maintainer can add this to the package.

fettouhi commented on 2019-10-16 09:26 (UTC)

Could you maybe add the desktop icon to install? Doesn't show up under KDE. Plus have you been able to figure out what firewall ports need to be opened?

LinuxScouser commented on 2019-10-15 22:41 (UTC)

Apologies if this is just a Manjaro issue but I'm not able to build the 1.0.4-2 update. I'm getting a fail during the validity check.

rgcv commented on 2019-09-14 17:33 (UTC)

Awesome, will do. Thanks for the feedback :)

thestr4ng3r commented on 2019-09-13 17:33 (UTC)

I think you can move "protobuf" to makedepends, only protoc is needed from it during the build.
