We are happy to announce a new upcoming release for Choqok after more than one year and half.
Big news about this release is that Choqok is now based on KDE Frameworks 5 and we officially support Friendica.
I should thank Mehrdad Momeny, Andrea Scarpino, Ignacio R. Morelle, Ian Schwarz, Gilbert Assaf for their contributions to keep the Choqok up.
And here you can find a longer list of bugs fixed in this release.
You can download Choqok 1.6 source code package from here. For Kubuntu users I think Adilson will update his PPA.
Note that qoauth-qt5 is required! Choqok cannot run with qoauth-qt4 anymore.
You can always support Choqok development via reporting bugs, translating it, promoting it, helping in code and donating money.
Unfortunately, I cannot use it because of a segfault, downgrading to 1.5 to avoid the issue for now…
Hi, please check that you are using qoauth-qt5 and not qoauth-qt4!
Yes, that was it.
Is there a way to keep accounts and config from choqok 1.5?
The first launch should do the migration. Maybe the previous segfault stopped it?
I think it was an issue with the deb package but compiling worked.
As far as I can see there is choqokrc in .config directory and nothing in .local/share, is that right?
Also, is choqok 1.6 using kwallet 4 or 5? being qt 5 it should use kwallet 5 but it seems to me is not, could you please confirm?
~/.local/share/choqok will contain the tweets. As soon as you close Choqok (with at least one account) that dir should be populated.
Yes, it uses the ‘chooqk’ folder in KWallet 5.
Indeed, I see that now that I re-authenticated my accounts 🙂
Great, thanks for the good work and for helping on my transition to 1.6
Any hope this to be portable to carry on USB?
I’m also getting a segmentation fault when launching choqok 1.6 after compiling with no errors. I have both oauth-qt4 and oauth-qt5 installed. Do I need to remove oauth-qt4?
I’m running Antergos with Plasma 5.8 and latest frameworks
Yes, programs built with Qt5 cannot use Qt4 libraries.
I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a
blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you
have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that
too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding
It seems that the qoauth in the arch linux repos is still qt4 so until Antonio Rojas updates the package I can’t use v1.6. I did wonder why the 1.6 arch package of choqok v1.6 hadn’t been released yet.
A heads up for any arch users who have compiled 1.6 for themselves and are getting the seg fault when launching… You’ll need to remove the arch qoauth 1.07 package and download the source from https://github.com/ayoy/qoauth and compile and install. This will give you the required qoauth 2.0.1 libs
Or you can install qoauth-git from AUR.
