If you're having the trouble of an infinite loop of captchas when you enable your account, a fix for this has been implemented in the git version of this package.

@MayorBender, thanks that worked.

The "url" field in the PKGBUILD shouldn't be an array, meaning it shouldn't have any parenthesis around it.

Thanks @flocke, updated

Working PKGBUILD for the newest version: http://paste.pound-python.org/show/XOVWlOCtBGYXYkYQhROX/

I do not think I am. It's not about the download, it is about compiling and copying the precompiled binaries--check the PKGBUILDs...

I think you are mistaken.
pidgin-opensteamworks :: downloads the released source tarball
pidgin-opensteamworks-bin :: downloads the binaries
pidgin-opensteamworks-svn :: clones the repo

kaptoxic commented on 2015-05-27 04:06

There are three packages, two of them are precompiled binaries--I believe the best thing is to merge pidgin-opensteamworks-bin and pidgin-opensteamworks into one (that just copies binaries)...
I can disown the -bin package so we can merge the two

sumt commented on 2015-05-26 04:33

Or one would like to just compile it locally. Having binary PKGBUILD is rather redundant to me since this compiles very quickly.

User might not trust the developers' binaries.

Is there a reason to have both pidgin-opensteamworks-bin and pidgin-opensteamworks?
I guess having pidgin-opensteamworks-svn separate is fine...

Guys might want to consolidate.

This package breaks installing pidgin-sipe for me.

pidgin-sipe compiles a small program in ./configure to check for SSL support in libpurple. With pidgin-opensteamworks installed this leads to a SIGSEV (and a failure to install pidgin-sipe with a misleading error message/no good way to get to the root cause).

The program (taken from pidgin-sipe's configure) and the backtrace is here:

1: https://gist.github.com/darklajid/3d8a68db1941493e7f0c

Will file a bug upstream as well, but I leave it here for the people that stumble through AUR.

Here is a diff for the PKGBUILD to put the icons in the correct directory. Currently they are not displayed in Pidgin's interface because of this path issue.
