@fruitywelsh: The fix for this problem is to run

archlinux-java set java-11-openjdk

(see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/java#Change_default_Java_environment)

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

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.)

Love this. Keep up the good work.

Build needs a2x binary to create man page.

Please add asciidoc to the list of build dependencies.

If you upgrade from the textsecure-cli packge, run the following commands to move your data to the new location.

# mv /var/lib/signal-cli /var/lib/signal-cli.bak
# mv /var/lib/textsecure-cli /var/lib/signal-cli
# chown -R signal-cli:signal-cli /var/lib/signal-cli

The executable name changed to signal-cli and the dbus interface to org.asamk.Signal

Well done!!!

libnative-platform.so seems to be created automatically by gradle and stored in $HOME/.gradle, which doesn’t work in the chroot. I fixed the package to use the build directory as gradle home.

Doesn't build here (in a clean chroot):

==> Starting build()...

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Failed to load native library 'libnative-platform.so' for Linux amd64.

* Try:
Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting...
==> ERROR: Build failed, check /home/sekret/.chroot/sekret/build

Any idea, what package provides libnative-platform.so ?
