1. I prefer to use packaged software.
2. There are a lot of caveats and warnings for that and the related carbons plugin.
If it were just me and my free computing peeps I'd be all over it. But I am looking for something that a new user can install (meaning simple instructions, or an "app store" option).

@satchmoz a lot of my issues will be solved with Ubuntu 18.04, because a lot of these apps work with 17.x.
I could be more flexible, but I am obligated to recommend a stable system, and LTS is my go to for that.
But I am still working in a void. Another blindspot for me is iOS #OMEMO support. So far I've found a single app, but it reportedly drains the battery, and given the platform, I don't see that getting fixed any time soon...
