So many Telephant updates recently:

- Image/video viewer
- Reply/boost/like counters
- Search feature
- Support for more panes & lists
- File-picker for uploads
- Performance improvements
- ...and a ton of bugfixes!

On Arch, simply install telephant-git.

Check out the build instructions for Ubuntu or download a static binary for Linux or Windows here:


(Note: the static binary may not support video playback and platform integration on all systems)

@telephant Does the static binary depend on system's Qt installation? I get a sigsegv & panic on Linux Mint 19.3.


No, it ships with Qt but depends on Xorg, PulseAudio, and a few image and audio decoders.

Can you pastebin the ouput, please?


Installing a Mint VM as we speak. Looks like it's missing some dependency indeed.

@telephant Thanks! BTW if you can think of any potential packages, I can test them on my machine.


Can you try:

sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install qml-module-qtquick*


Ok, that's not it.

I just noticed that when I try to start it multiple times it eventually does work. But crashes soon after with a similar error. I'll try to build it natively under Mint now and see if that helps.

@telephant That's what I experienced after I ran the apt command. Was trying to figure out why.



Hm, it also looks like the outdated Qt version Mint 19.3 ships may be a problem for Telephant. In the worst case we'll have to wait for the next Mint release 😞
