tar -xf telepathy-morse-0.1.0.tar.bz2 mkdir morse-build cd morse-build cmake ../telepathy-morse
Information about CMake build:
- By default CMake looks for the Qt5 build. You can pass USE_QT4 option (-DUSE_QT4=true) to process Qt4 build.
- Default installation prefix is /usr/local. Probably, you'll need to set CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX to /usr to make DBus activation works. (-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr)
make -j4 make install
- Initial low-level encryption sometimes generates bad random values, which rarely can leads to “connection doesn’t work” issue.
- Unable to send long messages (Missed TelegramQt gzip packing implementation; limit is about 400 characters; telegram protocol limitation is 4095 characters).
- Authentication doesn't work on the Sailfish OS (show-stopper).
