I was able to get this working by installing openssl-1.0 and running whatpulse with

sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0 whatpulse &

I made a post on the WhatPulse forums if you want more information:

Still "AES functions not available error" with the 2.8.2 package

@dewyatt, that's an interesting approach. Problematically enough, setcap prevents this from being used if you wish to have network statistics too, so -- remove setcap, set RPATH and you can at least get the other statistics working. :)

A workaround for the "AES functions not available error":

sudo pacman -S openssl-1.0

sudo patchelf --set-rpath /usr/lib/openssl-1.0/ /usr/bin/whatpulse

env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0 whatpulse

Not thoroughly tested.

For people that do want to pulse, but don't get the official client to work you can use this stripped down version. It will only pulse, you can run it as a background service if you create the service unit file. It works great on my pc.

Somebody got it to work? I still have the AES functions not available error

@xiretza, yup -- dun goof'd majestically.
I've updated it now, and bumped the pkgrel.

2.8.1-1 doesn't build, seems like you used the old sha256sum for whatpulse.desktop without reverting the file itself.

I've updated it to 2.8.1, using the Ubuntu version per the author's instructions (re: OpenSSL 1.1 v 1.0), however it is to no avail.

Whatpulse 2.8.1 should be pushed this week.
