[arch-general] hp myroom

I'm trying to use HP myRoom tool:


It's pretty similar to HP virtualRooms tool:


There's an AUR package for hpvirtualrooms:


And attached goes a package (essentially the PKGBUILD) I created for

myRoom is supposed to be based on the virtualRooms technology.

With virtualRooms I don't have any problems getting whatever is shared from
the virtual rooms.

With myRoom I can use the VoIP functionality, I can chat, I can share
desktop, and from my room I can also share desktop.

Weird enough, I can not get what others share to me on myRoom, or others'
room shares.

What I see is something popping up really quick and disappearing in a blink
of an eye.

I'm not using any DE, just a plain WM (fluxbox), so perhaps it might be
some configuration missing, or some permissions issue.

I also attempted xhost+, with no success.  Though I didn't expect anything
great from that, given I don't need it for virtualRooms.

I'm writing in case there's any Arch user that can help.  On ubuntu with
gnome this thing works out of the box, and I'm getting the hpmyroom
binaries from the deb package (there's also rpm).  See ldd output:

So I don't see any missing library, though there might be some incompatible
ones, but I have no clue.

If there's any one who can help me out to be able to get the shared stuff
on myRoom, that'd be great.
