[Below problems are fixed in version 1.4.3. Images sent via "gallery" don't load, but don't interrupt further messages.]

Anyone else had sent images not display in pidgin, and result in further messages in that conversation not display? They were sent by send media option, but sending them via send file option works. (I can see everything display correctly in Android client.)

Also, since my friend sent a location to me, both pidgin and finch segfault on startup unless I disable telegram plugin. A workaround for me is to delete the location message in the Android client, then telegram-purple works again.

pidgin/libpurple 2.13.0-9, telegram-purple 1.4.2-1

Above problems appear to be reported upstream:

This now crashes pidgin 2.13.0-9 here. No indication is given about the problem, pidgin dumps a core and exits. Pidgin works without the telegram plugin.

Currently, this crashes Bitlbee, I've raised an issue upstream but telegram-libpurple is stripping symbols.

Upstream suggests you should not be stripping symbols - However, this will increase size by approximately 3.24 MB.

Recommend adding options=(!strip) to PKGBUILD.

@Grandma I see that the author has already corrected the link to 1.4.2. The PKGBUILD is now working without issues :-)

Hi, @wzboy!

Can you please check this issue out? I think it's better to rollback PKGBUILD for now before the "real" release happen.

Interesting. Apparently there's quite a number of typos (version mismatches) in the last entry of the releases page:

Main title says "1.4.2", but the tag is "1.4.1".. This package needs a version downgrade apparently.

P.S. On the other hand, I personally stopped using telegram from pidgin, so I'll unsubscribe.

I'm getting:

ERROR: Failure while downloading

and as I can see it's not there:

@vasya Thanks. I have fixed that error.

Hi wzyboy. Can you please fix the PKGBUILD typo: the bash array for conflicts should be conflicts, not conflict.

Shameless plug: I've found this error via RUA (that I develop), specifically the shellcheck option of it.

You can confirm the variable name in man PKGBUILD.

wzyboy commented on 2018-08-27 07:14 (UTC)

I have updated the PKGBUILD to include the -w CLFAGS as @itoffshore suggested.
