Why do we need another distributed chat client when we already have qTox?

I use Ring, don't use Tox. I would love to see it included so I don't have to switch my family (again) to another service. I also do software comparisons and would like to do so going forward using Solus. So this would be a tremendous help. Thanks! :)

Looks like this needs dbus-c++ to build, but it hasn't been updated since 2012, does that make it a non-starter for inclusion in the repos?

I have high hopes for Ring as Wire currently doesn't seem to support input of Chinese characters and qTox audio and video functions are currently unusable.

Ring seems to be a very active solution, they publish a tarball every week : https://dl.ring.cx/ring-release/tarballs/ !

With gsm in the repository, are there any more dependencies missing? Would be great to see Ring land before Solus 4 goes live.

Yes, we also need opendht and argon2 (either as a submodule or single package), and pjproject. If I find some time I'll try to work on it.

From what I can tell dbus-cpp has moved to https://code.launchpad.net/dbus-cpp and the latest update was released in 2017.

This would be a great addition. I hope it can be added to the repository.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.

If I find some time I'll try to work on it.

@der_eismann It would be great to have Ring in the repository. Would you still help package and maintain it?
