Raghav, I have sent you an instant message from my account. I am currently still using the old version of linphone.

Hi Christopher and Maxim,

Hi, I've been having difficulties since the the recent linphone
updates. I know some work has been done on the package in recent
commits, so just a few minutes ago I ran

guix time-machine -- environment --ad-hoc linphone-desktop

christopher@theoden ~ [env]$ guix describe
Generation 14	Apr 01 2021 13:21:37	(current)
   guix 079a7f2
     repository URL: 

     branch: master
     commit: 079a7f2c65c51da7b53b0e5ef44c516dc8eaab6e

The two problems I get running the program are:

(1) I get non-descript error icons when I send messages to contacts
(though the messages seem to get through)

(2) old messages do not appear when I start the application

(3) messages from others appear in notifications window but not in the
app screen

(4) sometimes get a segfault upon replying to a message

Thanks for the report.

Would you be able to help me with the testing, by test-messaging me over 
linphone, so that I can try some fixes? My address is raghavgururajan at 

Hmm, it seems the problem strictly has to do with messaging?  That would
explain how my testing of the application failed to reveal it as I don't
currently used that feature (I use it for SIP calls only).

Same here.

Is someone else equipped and able to reproduce it?  Perhaps Raghav

I'll try to fix it.
