I downloaded the one from the last link yes.. hence I said Debian 7 and 8

I'll grab the copy one and see what gives.


Your i386 deb seems to have a glitch.. the names of the users are now a bunch of numbers.

I rebuilt from the same source and used the same build procedure as those in the opensuse build service, can you see if this has the same problem?

My first version is about a month older than the opensuse build version.

Bingo! That one is fine :number1:

When you hover over a contact you will still see the number but meh. At least the contact list shows names :smile:


Haven't tested the chat itself but that will happen in due time.

Thanks Stevo!

Update on this for MX15, the old i386 deb won't install on my 64 bits system. Don't know if it will on the non 64 bits.

Anyway to make it fit to the current system I went here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositori ... ebian_8.0/

and downloaded the 64 bits purple-facebook_20151018~a418f60~6a0a79182ebc~24_amd64.deb which works like a charm.
