Is there any reason this package depends on fuse? No other kotatogram packages has this dependency

Edit: Ok I figured out what's going on. This package is an appimage, and appimages require fuse2 as a runtime dependency.

@nautilor This often happens for some reason, I think it's the fact the we pull the .desktop from github and it sometimes must be giving garbage instead of the right file...

Anywho, I just manually downloaded the .desktop file, and the shasums are correct...

nautilor commented on 2022-03-12 20:14 (UTC)

sha not valid for the .desktop file.

I just installed it with

git clone
cd kotatogram-desktop-bin
makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD 
sudo pacman -S kotatogram-desktop-bin-1.4.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

@TheK0tYaRa I had a look to the linked issue, however even if this were related to the fact that this is setup as a statically linked package, I doubt there could be anything I could do about it. You could try using the kotatogram-dev-git package which is built from source, that way you could see if this is solved in master.

Got this issue with this package:

In short - sound didn't work and any sound starting produced the following in the terminal:

Invalid return value 0 for stream protocol
Invalid return value 0 for stream protocol

There are a more universal way to disable internal updater, just add these lines to package():

mkdir -p "$pkgdir/etc/kotatogram-desktop"
echo "/usr/bin/kotatogram-desktop" > "$pkgdir/etc/kotatogram-desktop/externalupdater"

After that prepare() isn't needed

@figue i'm sorry i was wrong. for some reason my kotatogram.desktop has Exec=kotatogram-desktop -externalupdater option added. So i checked your pkgbuild and i didn't see the sed command very well and i though you added it.

figue commented on 2020-06-09 18:24 (UTC)

@glats why you want the externalupdater? Only in case you start it with root privileges you can update with the builtin option... It has no sense.

Also, edit manually PKGBUILD or make a custome desktop file if really you want that start without that option.

Pleas remove -externalupdater option. After removed it appears in the menu. (rofi in my case)

figue commented on 2020-05-24 15:17 (UTC)

Now linux binary is an AppImage, I think you need to add: options=(!strip)

Hello, the tray icon and window app icon is the Telegram official under XFCE, is there any way to change it to Kotatogram's icon?
