Ah, sorry about that. I haven't used my AUR account in so long, I forgot to update my email address. 🤦

I haven't used this package since I worked at a job that used Lotus Notes and Sametime... and I haven't had that job for many years now. I'm going to disown this. Anyone else wants to take over, feel free.

My company has switched away from using Sametime - I can no longer validate builds function correctly. Disowning the package to allow someone else to pick up the torch.

William has transferred packaging to me -- I have rewritten the build sections (and updated to 2.10.10), please report any issues with this new method that tries to be as lean as possible (no tcl/perl/tk/python/etc.). The finished library has reduced ~4k on my system from the previous version - be sure and back up the 2.10.9 package or /usr/lib/purple-2/ before upgrading just in case. I've tested this against my corporate Sametime server (I think it's version 8.5.2?) and everything seems to work as expected. Tested with OTR as well, no issues popped up for me...

These should no longer be needed: # The farstream patch changes autoreconf -vi # Use Python 2 sed -i 's/env python$/&2/' */plugins/*.py \ libpurple/purple-{remote,notifications-example,url-handler} I was also messing with the PKGBUILD to try and get it to be a minimal compile (linked libs on the final .so) even if you have everything installed that gets auto-detected. If anyone wants to help test it out a little: PKG_CONFIG="" \ GLIB_CFLAGS="$(pkg-config --cflags 'glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0 gobject-2.0 gmodule-2.0 gthread-2.0')" \ GLIB_LIBS="$(pkg-config --libs 'glib-2.0 >= 2.16.0 gobject-2.0 gmodule-2.0 gthread-2.0')" \ LIBXML_CFLAGS="$(pkg-config --cflags 'libxml-2.0 >= 2.6.0')" \ LIBXML_LIBS="$(pkg-config --libs 'libxml-2.0 >= 2.6.0')" \ MEANWHILE_CFLAGS="$(pkg-config --cflags 'meanwhile >= 1.0.0 meanwhile < 2.0.0')" \ MEANWHILE_LIBS="$(pkg-config --libs 'meanwhile >= 1.0.0 meanwhile < 2.0.0')" \ ./configure \ --prefix=/usr \ --sysconfdir=/etc \ --with-python=/usr/bin/python2 \ --with-dynamic-prpls=sametime \ --enable-silent-rules \ --enable-shared \ --disable-gtkui \ --disable-consoleui \ --disable-screensaver \ --disable-sm \ --disable-startup-notification \ --disable-gtkspell \ --disable-gestures \ --disable-schemas-install \ --disable-gstreamer \ --disable-gstreamer-interfaces \ --disable-farstream \ --disable-vv \ --disable-idn \ --disable-avahi \ --disable-fortify \ --disable-dbus \ --disable-nls \ --disable-nm \ --disable-nss \ --disable-perl \ --disable-gnutls \ --disable-tcl \ --disable-tk \ --disable-pixmaps-install \ --disable-doxygen \ --disable-dot \ --disable-devhelp By nulling out PKG_CONFIG all the random things without a --disable flag (like GADU and PANGO) are ignored, then manually pull in the needed configs for GLIB_*, LIBXML_* and MEANWHILE_* just the way ./configure does. Then adding all the other --disable flags skips all the checks/warnings/errors, etc. - just build in the libpurple/protocols/sametime/ subdir. Warning: not well tested.

Needs depends for tk and tlc (or disables).

christoph.gysin commented on 2014-05-12 07:39 (UTC)

This should depend on tk or disable tk support.

Well, if pidgin is already going to include those files, I guess I don't need to. updated PKGBUILD.

pacman -Ql pidgin | grep meanwhile pidgin /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/protocols/16/meanwhile.png pidgin /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/protocols/22/meanwhile.png pidgin /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/protocols/48/meanwhile.png pidgin /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/protocols/scalable/meanwhile.svg

what package currently owns those files?
