Arch's default is We should need link to opt/slskqt.

in, it should probably have "exec" in front of ./SoulseekQt, otherwise it'll keep spawned shell around, which is sorta waste.

@robertfoster Thx :)

on 1,3,4 - sorry, i thought for some reason that you are the creator of soulseek, my bad - i'll contact him via site!

What about that though it's also program or there's something we can do to debug?

@aeymxq +1 on the XDG_BASE_DIRECTORY support, would love to have that folder out of my /home.

fyi latest "cleanup" commit broke "Cleanup" functionality of this PKGBUILD (/opt/soulseekqt/{AppRun,default.desktop,soulseek.png,*.AppImage} get installed). you can't quote shell expansions.

this should probably work though: rm -rf "$pkgdir/opt/soulseekqt/"{AppRun,default.desktop,soulseek.png,*.AppImage}

1 3 & 4 are related to features not editable by me. This client is closed source and you can do only little tricks to let him survive against updates. In particular:

  1. for me it works, could you tell me something more about your habits?

  2. done

  3. these are related to the statically linked QT lib that soulseekqt bring with him. Should not affect the normal behaviour. We can only hope in updates or migrate to nicotine client

  4. I've tried to apply system themes, but you have to changes the static libs. Things done in the past, but after a little system update broke everything.

If someone has precious suggestions we can talk about it

Also there is a serious problem i encountered lately, when you just keep client open downloading / uploading / wish list searching - in some time (it can be 5-30 minutes) there's extremely high chance search will stop working (return nothing) and your download list will look stuck, so when you reboot client there will be some missing items (from the point it starts to stuck)...

I can't determine reason, stdout / stderr says nothing about this.

  1. +1 on Close / Minimize to tray, just like qBittorrent or something.

  2. @robertfoster please use good old double quotes for all paths (cd / rm / mkdir etc), some of us build in non-default locations which may have space in path and anyway it's just a good tone to quote path for safety ;)

  3. Manjaro KDE stable here, stdout, not sure how bad that is, but worth mention: QSslSocket: cannot resolve CRYPTO_num_locks QSslSocket: cannot resolve CRYPTO_set_id_callback QSslSocket: cannot resolve CRYPTO_set_locking_callback QSslSocket: cannot resolve ERR_free_strings QSslSocket: cannot resolve EVP_CIPHER_CTX_cleanup QSslSocket: cannot resolve EVP_CIPHER_CTX_init QSslSocket: cannot resolve sk_new_null QSslSocket: cannot resolve sk_push QSslSocket: cannot resolve sk_free QSslSocket: cannot resolve sk_num QSslSocket: cannot resolve sk_pop_free QSslSocket: cannot resolve sk_value QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSL_library_init QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSL_load_error_strings QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSL_get_ex_new_index QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv3_client_method QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv23_client_method QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv3_server_method QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv23_server_method QSslSocket: cannot resolve X509_STORE_CTX_get_chain QSslSocket: cannot resolve OPENSSL_add_all_algorithms_noconf QSslSocket: cannot resolve OPENSSL_add_all_algorithms_conf QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLeay QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLeay_version QSslSocket: cannot call unresolved function SSLeay Incompatible version of OpenSSL

  1. Also would be cool to have system's qt open/save dialog style as it used to, if it's possible, as well as system theme etc.

any chance of adding support for XDG_BASE_DIRECTORY?

I'm sorry to ask, is there any way to get "close to tray" working? thanks
