Well, there is not really anything I can do regarding the invalid SSL certificate. Quick fix would be to manually download the icon.png and ignore the certificate. Should be fine as the PKGBUILD contains the icon.png's hash.

curl --insecure > icon.png

Will change the git submodules in the next release. Thanks for letting me know.

Can you, according to the VCS packaging guidelines, please list all git submodules in the source array and only add them in prepare() as described in the VCS packaging guidelines?

Regards and thanks for the package!

firejail works:

firejail --profile=/etc/firejail/linphone.profile /opt/linphone/linphone-launcher -V

Tried to build on a 2-core 4GB system with 512 MB swap and it crashed the machine after 2 hours of compiling. Seems it is no longer doable on a 4GB standard install. A 2GB swap is necessary. My guess is that you need 4 core processor and 6GB of RAM. I have to install the OBS Build Service package instead on 4GB machines. OBS Build Service reports: Maximal used memory: 4512 Mbyte. A window manager desktop would probably need approximately 1-2.5 GB extra memory. 5512 Mbyte is probably the lowest RAM+swap requirement.

Same/similar package built by OBS Build Service

Import/export contacts addon

Until Linphone-Desktop provides a way to import/export contacts within the app, these scripts can be used to modify the contact database. Among them, dump all contact data into a tar.xz-file which can be imported on another machine after a clean new install. To see the commands, type in terminal:

linphone-contactspress <TAB><TAB> key twice and the commands will pop-up.


firejail modification

firejail blocks the camera for linphone in it's default settings.

If firejail reports an openGL error when launching linphone (causes crash) or you wish to use the camera with linphone but still use firejail sandbox:

# allow openGL
echo "ignore no3d" >> "${proFile}"
# allow camera
echo "ignore novideo" >> "${proFile}"
firetools modification

Linphone may not be visible in firetools gui. To add it:

echo "linphone;Linphone;${icon}" >> "${uiappsFile}"
echo "/opt/linphone/linphone-launcher;Linphone /opt/linphone/linphone-launcher;${icon};firejail --profile=/etc/firejail/linphone.profile /opt/linphone/linphone-launcher" >> "${uiappsFile}"

After the latest update of this PKGBUILD to version 5.2.0-4 it launches for me.
Thanks for the maintanance work!

Something seems broken. Starting Linphone via the desktop entry does nothing, starting /opt/linphone/bin/linphone leads to:

/opt/linphone/bin/linphone: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

build() downloads lots of stuff.

Can you please move that into prepare()?:

[ ... even more, I got impatient waiting for download finish and just did stop here to finish this report ... ]

(And several of those libraries are already installed on the system, so why does it fetch them again?)

Regards and thanks for maintaining!

Can you please add linphone=${pkgver} to the provides array?

And if there is no /usr/bin/linphone, can you create one, as it has been in the past?

There are packages that depend on linphone.

Thanks for maintaining!
