Doesn't build for me. Perhaps a missing dependency? The configure phase fails with:

checking for lrelease... no
configure: error: lrelease is missing (qt3-devel-tools package)

Doesn't compile anymore. Very ugly fix: Put this under patch -p0 .. up to .configure .. as a replacement. You need to install automake-1.12 from AUR.
cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
export automake=1.12
export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt3/
/usr/bin/automake-1.12 -a
mkdir -p src/gui/.ui
mkdir -p src/gui/.obj
mkdir -p src/gui/.moc
if [[ "$(uname -a | grep -os x86_64)" == "x86_64" ]]; then
find ./ -exec sed "s/\(i686-pc\|i586-pc\)/x86-64/g" -i '{}' \;
find ./ -exec sed "s/\(i686\|i586\)/x86-64/g" -i '{}' \;
You also need to:
ln -s /usr/share/qt3/mkspecs /usr/lib/qt3/mkspecs
ln -s /usr/lib /usr/lib/qt3/lib
ln -s /usr/include/qt3 /usr/lib/qt3/include

It compiles, HOWEVER: I have a near-perfect asterisk setup locally and wouldn't get SIP audio. The UI of twinkle is not nice imo and it crashes for all sorts of reasons, e.g. if the connection to the SIP provider is suddenly lost .. Not very worthwhile.

/etc/profile.d/ (formerly from qt3) doesn't exist anymore, but it is called by PKGBUILD.

I tried version 1.4.1 from the official site and it works the same way. It seems ( this might be a quite old problem. So I tried compiling version 1.2 (, but it depends on old alocal etc. so I wasn't successful.

@nemamradfazole Yes this is what I said. There is a patch to build with the recent version of ccrtp and libzrtpcpp but this seems broken. It build but does not give a working binary. Downgrading these two libaries fixed the problem, but I just use linphone now. Anyway, I would be happy if someone have a solution.

With the latest version a call-receiver hears me, but I cannot hear anything.

Please update this package! or create a GIT version.

Michitux commented on 2013-02-12 16:45

The macro AM_CONFIG_HEADER is obsolete, according to AC_CONFIG_HEADERS in current automake versions is a synonym for this obsolete macro.

cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
solved the problem for me.
