Bug Description

Binary package hint: kopete

In KDE4.4 have Kopete support for Google Talk voice call (with jabber protocol). For enable voice call is needed libraries: speex, alsa, expat, ssl, mediastreamer (2.3.0 or higher) and libortp. But packages mediastreamer (2.3.0) and libortp are not set in build depends. It is possible to add missing deb packages to build depends and enable Google Talk voice call for jabber protocol? A lot of other IM clients have support for voice call and Kopete now too.

thanks, it works perfect.
But it consumes 156MB of HD space where normal Kopete takes only 20MB.
libmsn 0.2 is for MSN, right?
Is it a mandatory component for GTalk Audio to work?

In my ppa I have unstripped version for debuging
Yes, libmsn is for MSN (now WLM) protocol, it is not needed for GTalk audio

So how can I get a version of Kopete without libmsn?

Download dsc package and compile it yourself without WLM protocol.
$ apt-get source kopete

So is there any problem with adding build depends?

mediastreamer and libortp are presumably not in the main part of the ubuntu universe, so they need to be promoted in order to add them as build dependencies

What needs to be done:
a) evaluate what exactly is necessary to get google talk voice support going (for starters mediastreamer and libortp it would seem)
b) check if the direct dependencies of that feature are in universe
c) if they are, then it all of their dependencies need to be checked for being in universe, and so forth
d) for all of the dependencies that are in the universe it should be evaulated if they can be promoted to main (supportability, security risks ...)
e) if all works out for each source package a main inclusion report should be filed
f) should all MIRs get accepted we can add the desired functionallity (for the sake of disk space possible as additional - optional - binary package)

Unfortunately I will not be able to look into this for the next month or so... :/

Seems the change had to be reverted, im splitting the google call package from the original kopete package to fix this.

Ok, I see that executable googletalk-call is in new package kopete-gcall.

If user doesnt have installed this package and enable Google Talk libjingle support in configuration dialog, after restart Kopete show error message about installation. I think is better show info about install new package kopete-gcall for support.

This patch for kubuntu change error message to info about installation.
