Choqok 1.0 Beta4 (codenamed "Wind") proudly released With so many fixes around previous betas and some new features and plugins.
You can get the source code of this release here, or wait for binary packages that your distro maintainers will provide you.
We’ve removed some plugins:
I tried to compile this, and at first I got the error messages some people got with the previous beta (“CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:1 (include): include could not find load file: DBusMacros”). Then I finally figured out I was making the “build” directory in the wrong place.
In the README, under “How to Build the Project” it says:
So I went to the folder that was generated when I extracted the tar.bz2 file (“choqok-0.9.92”), navigated to the “choqok” folder within that, and made a “build” directory.
But where the “build” directory should be is the top level of the extracted folder.
So maybe a future README file could say:
cd choqok-0.9.92 [or the current version]
And here are the libraries I needed to download to get everything to work in Kubuntu 10.10:
sudo apt-get install kdelibs5-dev
sudo apt-get install libqjson-dev
sudo apt-get install libqoauth-dev
sudo apt-get install libqca2-dev
sudo apt-get install gettext
I hope this is helpful to other people at the “copy-and-paste into command line” level …
Thanks for the great software!
Anyone having problems while shortening url in this version?
run it from terminal and paste the output!
Maybe you can see the problem there!
this version is more stable than others! 10x
I can’t seem to find anywhere else to file a bug report for Choqok, so I’ll assume it’s here.
Using Choqok Version 1.0 Beta4 (0.9.92) on a gnome desktop. Upon starting the application the Choqok image and name appears in the centre of the screen, another window pops up from kwallet asking for the password. However this window from kwallet is always behind the Choqok image and is completely hidden. To work around it the user needs to move the kwallet window, but this is not immediately obvious as it is completely hidden. This should be a simple error to fix, but I think it’s worth mentioning.
ps. keep up the good work on the best open source micro blogging tool on the Linux desktop 🙂
