Yeah, I was just asking if you wanted ownership before I disowned it

you should orphan the package, someone might pick up, Don't think I have the dedication to maintain a kde app with a dozen of dependencies. Thanks for maintaining up until this point

It appears that neochat is already using the qt6 stack from kde, that means you'll need every dependency built with -DQT_MAJOR_VERSION=6, so it currently depends on kirigami2-git, knotifications-git and so on, don't think every *-git package is built with QT_MAJOR_VERSION=6, so you'll need to edit the PKGBUILDS, in other words, too much work

I don't use arch anymore, should I transfer control of the package to you?

Does not build, I think this probably requires extra-cmake-modules-git

I updated the package and the rooms sidebar is broken (extremely big icons), maybe this package need to depend on kirigami-git?

Will test that later

Edit: Nope, resizing the sidebar after updating to neochat-git from the normal package fixes the weird icon size

This helps me run it on Sway -- but still for some reason the dark theme is not fully respected as is the case for running Dolphin -- not sure why -- so far this seems to be the most promising Matrix client out of the bunch.

env QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland-egl QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct neochat

I'm still not sure how to tweak it exactly just yet.

Ah, I had breeze-icons installed and still saw empty spaces everywhere, but I now set it to be the default icon theme on qt5ct and it works. Thank you.

The only icon set for which we know that it contains all the needed icons is breeze-icons

bjesus commented on 2021-02-21 21:22 (UTC)

Anyone knows what package is needed to add the missing icons? I think I'm running into this issue[0] of icons not appearing when not running inside KDE, but I'm not sure what package I should install to make those icons available.
