I pushed an update in 6/Core/Updates_testing repo with a new 1.10.1 release and also with zrtp and gsm support enabled.

Please test it, thanks in advance!

Thanks, David. I assigned to you because you already pushed the package to testing.
Comment 3 Markus Robert Keßler 2018-02-12 11:23:03 CET
I uninstalled the official version and installed this one, but after invoking twinkle it says:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "".

Available platform plugins are: wayland-org.kde.kwin.qpa, eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Unfortunately, the last line is not true. I uninstalled 1.10.1 and reinstalled 1.9.0 but it does not run any more and above error stays.

As I have to see now, Avidemux-qt also refuses to work even after reinstallation, and maybe other QT-lib-based applications are also affected.

Damn, this was a real box and not a testing-VM...

As there are a lot of Qt5/Kf5 update in 6/Core/Updates_testing repo maybe this issue come from.

So time to assigning to QA now,


Our current version 1.9.0 is now quite old (released on 2015.07.13) and unmaintained upstream.
This updates twinkle to a version which is supported upstream and also it enables zrtp and gsm support.

Packages in 6/core/updates_testing:

Had a look at this and installed and updated the package.  This is not something I know anything about - Voice over IP phone - and I do not have a microphone.

Invoked the interface and created a profile, naming sipgate.co.uk as my SIP provider, a barefaced lie.  A dialogue popped up the next time twinkle was invoked with a login screen for sipgate.co.uk.

This at least demonstrates that the application is now functioning.  It would not launch before the update.

Giving this the OK.
