I've added a pgp signature to the source file, to import the signing key, run the following command:
> gpg --recv-keys FA10826A74907F9EC6BBB7FC2BA2CD21B5B09570

Running signal-cli -u '+XXXXXXXXXXX' daemon fails with error Missing native library dependency for dbus service: could not load FFI provider jnr.ffi.provider.jffi.Provider

Rebuilding and reinstalling signal-cli doesn't fix the issue.

May it be caused by today's update: libelf (0.178-2 -> 0.179-1)?

UPD: Or maybe by this one: glib2 (2.64.2-1 -> 2.64.3-1)?

@pmav99 the build also works with java-8-openjdk but you need the JDK package installed as well (jdk8-openjdk), not just the JRE package (jre8-openjdk)

For the record, I just tried to compile with java-8-openjdk/jre and it failed. After switching to java-11-openjdk it compiled correctly.

The error was:

Execution failed for task ':compileJava'.

Could not find tools.jar. Please check that /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre contains a valid JDK installation.

Verifying source file signatures with gpg... v0.6.2.tar.gz ... FAILED (unknown public key 2BA2CD21B5B09570) ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

I do have a build.gradle in that directory and it is no different from the one in the github repository (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/AsamK/signal-cli/master/build.gradle).

Building in a clean chroot completes without errors but it doesn't install it to my system.

Looks like the problem lies with me but I'm unsure of what to do.

That's strange, looks like something is wrong with the extracted source files. Can you check if the file src/signal-cli-0.6.2/build.gradle exists in your aur build directory.

Have you tried building it in a clean chroot?

I'm getting a problem installing this via the AUR:

==> Starting build()...

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Task 'installDist' not found in root project 'signal-cli'.

* Try:
Run gradle tasks to get a list of available tasks. Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.

BUILD FAILED

In the PKGBUILD I do see the task being called explicitly inside build():

GRADLE_USER_HOME="${srcdir}/.gradle" gradle --no-daemon installDist

Anything I can do to make this better? The AUR version is 0.6.2 which is the latest release according to github too.

Thanks for your work on this! Love it :D

I just encountered https://github.com/AsamK/signal-cli/issues/49, which reminds me the most recent release is 0.5.5, while this package is still on 0.5.3.

(Not a big issue, I can just edit the PKGBUILD locally.)
