After I had successfully built the package, I tried to run it but I got this error:

nheko: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is boost-libs required as a dependency maybe?

Thanks, rebuilding mtxclient did the trick.

z3ntu commented on 2021-06-28 09:46

@samhh Then rebuild the nheko package (and maybe also mtxclient)

Note: The AUR is unsupported, so any packages you install are your responsibility to update, not pacman's. If packages in the official repositories are updated, you will need to rebuild any AUR packages that depend on those libraries.

Not run nheko for a few weeks, now seeing this:

$ nheko
nheko: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Please upgrade to latest lmdbxx and mtxclient before upgrading to 0.8.2, otherwise you will get build errors!

There's a bug that means right now you can't login if your homeserver is a Dendrite server.

The fix is a small change to the mtxclient package. I've included the mtxclient PKGBUILD's diff below, to those who want to try it out (it worked for me, but I don't think it should be incorporated into the AUR package).

Updating to latest Arch linux ARM, the Nheko is not usable at all, its just a black screen after launch. It was working fine before the pacman -Syu. Any idea what can be broken? Tried to also rebuild it but the result is the same.

VoIP support is now built in but not tested. Please report back if it works for you (maybe gst-plugin-qmlgl is also required?)
