Official F-Droid repository ("basic" version)


#1

I’ve published a quick and dirty F-Droid repository where I’ll be uploading all versions of Kontalk for the “basic” version (I still have to find a way to publish both versions - if it’s even possible, I’ll keep you updated here).
Packages are signed with the Google Play key so they’re not compatible with the F-Droid official build - that is, you can’t update the F-Droid version with these ones.

This is for the impatients who doesn’t want to wait for F-Droid to update their repo :stuck_out_tongue:

Add a new repository and use this URL:
https://www.kontalk.org/fdroid/repo

It will say “Unsigned” at first, don’t worry, let it update everything and you will find the latest Kontalk release.


Kontalk 4.1.1 - new emoji set
Kontalk 4.1.0 - Location sharing and much more

Good news for the impatient! =) Do consider adding it to this list on F-Droid.org

Mmm, clicking on the link “https://www.kontalk.org/fdroid/repo” results in error code 404. It seems that the file is not available anymore…


#4

The URL is not supposed to be opened from a browser. It should be used on F-Droid only.
I’ll put an index page in the repo folder stating that.

Ah! I see it now…, sorry, I understood it completely wrong :confused:. Within F-Droid I added the link to the sources, or repositories. So far so good. Now waiting for the update of Kontalk which still has not arrived. Or should I remove the “old” Kontalk first to make the way for the newly added repository free?

Unfortunately yes, because of different signatures. You either always use the F-Droid version or our repo version.

Understood. I replaced the “old” Kontalk" by the repo version, it went smooth. Thank you, also for your patience! It was my first time that I used the F-Droid possibility of adding repositories.
