[bug report] [jami-qt] jami launches, but nothing shows up after update


Jami launches (exists in process list), but nothing shows up after yesterday’s update.

It is possible that the problem comes again from a library incompatibility, after the update of qt for example.

Jami-qt’s version: 20220722-4.2

I would assume that the Arch maintainer would have made a rebuild too if that was the case.

But again, without more info, we can guess until new years eve.


The error message come long after the program start, so I did not see it.

So here it is:

Bug report filed on archlinuxarm on January 2, 2023.

The latest Manjaro update did not fix the issue (January 2023).

According to Jami’s developer, this is definitely a packaging issue, not a problem on their end.

With no response from archlinuxarm or Manjaro, I feel helpless, as I don’t know how to package software.

If you are really relying on Jami, maybe you can try the flatpak version:
