Chatty can no longer start since the last update
#1
Sad 
Hello

I cannot read my SMS, Chatty doesn't open anymore since the last update (libpurple?). When I naively tried to run it in command line by entering "chatty", it complained about a missing shared library libjabber.so.0. What can I do to fix it? Where should I look for error logs?

Hi,
same error here...

It looks like it will be fixed in the next version of chatty 0.6.4:

Thank you for your reply. "ln -s" might help in the meantime but maybe I should just wait for a clean fix.

I tried building Chatty 0.6.4 from here https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/chatty/-/tree/v0.6.4
but I had an error on the meson build stage (meson.build:113:0: ERROR: Subproject exists but has no meson.build file)

Try at your own risk, I forced installation of 0.6.4-1 from https://packages.debian.org/sid/arm64/chatty/download
using
Code:
sudo apt-get install -f ./chatty_0.6.4-1_arm64.deb

and that worked for me. Hopefully my build attempts did not affect it and would work for others. I have not tested it but it runs i.e. launches as per normal.

Hopefully a fix will be available via the usual Mobian updates.
Pinephone v1.2 UBports CE. Adelaide, Australia using Amaysim SIM (Optus network, VoLTE enabled) with Mobian SD card. VoLTE working also with Felix / Vodafone AU and Aldimobile / Telstra AU.
Manjaro Plasma Mobile on EMMC.

I entered this in command line:
wget http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool/mai..._arm64.deb
sudo dpkg -i chatty_0.6.4-1_arm64.deb

Then, I rebooted my pinephone (mandatory, otherwise you just get a blank Chatty) and it worked Smile

dcinoz, as you can see in the bug report, the fix will be available in about 4 days for others.

When building from source, I received an error for a missing libpurple0.so file. I had libpurple0 in my /var/cache/archives still so it worked after I downgraded by running:
dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/libpurple0_2.14.8-1_arm64.deb

I did the same thing with pidgin-data prior to that, but I don't think it fixed anything.

I hit the same problem and was able to fix it without installing anything:

Code:
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/purple-2 chatty

It's the advice provided here, except replacing "x86_64" with "aarch64" in the path: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepor...ug=1011166

By the way, is there any way to know if apt-upgrading will break our phones ahead of time? I would have been happy to just not upgrade until the fix is up.

Not that I know of other than holding off on potentially problematical updates and keeping an eye out here for reports of problems.

I do full image backups of my eMMC periodically so if something serious breaks I can get the phone back to a working state. I also keep a "known to work" sd card handy just in case.

Received update yesterday that included chatty. Chatty now launches successfully and I can send/receive texts again. The new chatty version has new features that seem quite useful.

I appreciate so much the work that all of the developers put into advancing this functionality of the pinephone. I will continue to support by using the device and software that I enjoy using. I will try to find other ways to support as best as I can.
