sry i did not test this well - i forgot my credentials long ago - i only launched it and saw the login screen, and assumed that it was good - that should have been a reasonable assumption - all i did was to rebuild the existing version (to close #3377) - there are new releases upstream; but i was hoping to avoid a rabbit-hole - strictly speaking, that login window was "any window" - maybe that should be "some specific class of windows"

$ LC_ALL=C jami

i wonder if that is the problem - i launched 'jami-qt' not 'jami'

could you try:

$ jami-qt

if that does not work, could you try building the same version as the arch package? - you should only need to change the git commit in the PKGBUILD

jami-qt does the same.

I removed ~/.cache/jami, ~/.config/jami and ~/.local/share/jami to eliminate problems with things stored but it makes no difference. I haven't used jami on parabola for a while.

The message in the terminal show up before I do anything, I don't see any login window, just he icon in the Mate panel which has a drop down menu with two choices, "Show Jami" and "Quit", none of them do anything.

Will try building as you suggested (probably by the end of the week).

note that if you literally "removed" (rm -rf) ~/.config/jami and ~/.local/share/jami, you have destroyed your credentials - not merely de-configured them - i mean they are gone forever, unless you have previously setup jami on another device, or backed-up the export.tar.gz somehow

No worry, I have Jami configured on another disk and on two other computers, all using Trisquel.
