LibQTelegram's secret chats implementation is a bit unstable, the best thing to do is to avoid its usage, if possible.

I have experienced strange behaviors too

boebbele's picture

Thank you for the update! It works good, but the connection breaks up still, if Jolla goes into standby. I have to start the app again, only then the new messages come in.

Dax's picture

It's a known issue, I will try to fix it in 0.74!

It's difficult to handle Sailorgram when Jolla is in standby state.

I need logs in order to figure out what's happening.

This is the procedure in order to get logs from an application:

Instead of "harbour-webpirate" you'll need to write "harbour-sailorgram"

Ok I think to understand the issue, if you ping to (telegram's DC 5), do you receive any reply?

TMavica's picture

2xx ms ping

Dax's picture

Try this one:

I have reported the issue to the developer more than a week ago:

Sometimes, here in europe, DC 5 is unreachable, so I have disabled it.

The library expects that every Telegram server is always up and running, if only one of them is offline the client hangs (keeps waiting until the offline DC replies).

TMavica's picture

This version is worked

I think it would be nice if my messages were on the right and others on the left so it would be more like in the desktop app. Also for the 0.8x I hope you add support for the new set of emojis. Also just reminding for the easily accessed "disable notification and sound" -button for more comfortable use with desktop app.

Dax's picture

The emoji set are easy to change, could you provide a link? :)

About notifications button, I can place it everywhere, do you have any ideas?

A little advice: it's not a good idea to have it in the pull down menu, because it can open it when you are scrolling fast during conversations and it's a bit annoying.

Thanks for the feedback btw!


We have also discussed with beta testers about the bubble's position, I will change it in the next version!

Ingvix's picture

I'm not really a developer so I'm not sure what should I provide with the emojis but I think here might be something you require for that: . Will there also be app's own emoticon list so you wouldn't necessary need to download the emoji keyboard?

I think the mute button could be somewhere on the front/conversations page for the most convenience solution. Maybe you could make a little bar at the bottom of the screen that where you could maybe add more buttons of some sort? Also would be nice to have the mute button on the taskscreen view.

Also you could put a something more simpler alarm sound when a chat is open and you recieve a message to that chat. The normal message alarm is a bit too alarming at that cenario. Just a little 'bob'-sound or such would work fine.

Dax's picture

Those emojis are fantastic! Thanks!
I will replace with these ones in the next version!

Making a silence button at the top, where name and status are displayed it's an easy task to do, a bottom bar sounds a bit ugly in Sailfish, imho.

Yes I can add the "mute" button in the cover, do you want that act as a global switch? (mutes everything)

About the notification sound, I use the SaiflishOS "IM-Tone", so if you change it from sailfishos' settings it changes in Sailorgram too (I don't have tested, but it should work).

Ingvix's picture

Yes, a global switch, please. Top is fine too and I meant the conversation list screen, though wouldn't hurt to have it in the actual chat screen too. Although there a mute for a single person would probably make more sense and the global only to the conversations list, maybe.

But won't it also change the alarm sound when I'm not in the app? I think that's fine as it is but I just don't like hearing that when I'm actually watching the chat as it recieves message. Like the android's telegram app has a small and short "bob"-sound when inside the app and the imtone when outside.

Dax's picture

Ah, ok! :)

Ah, ok now I understand you request, I need to find a "low profile" notification sound then.

Ingvix's picture

Nice, really looking forward to it.

Ingvix's picture

Any hope expecting a new version soon?

Dax's picture

I'm still working on 0.8:

Develop a Telegram client is not easy, it requires some time :)

Ingvix's picture

Keep up the good work.

boebbele's picture

please please go ahead with this app! :-) It is so great to have a native telegram client!

Dax's picture

Sailorgram's development is not stopped!

I'm working on 0.8

I'm busy with real life issues, that's why there is low activity

Aslanex's picture

Seems the app does not support two-way autenthization (password)?

Dax's picture

Currently, Sailorgram doesn't support two factor authentication

Victorious's picture

Today installed the application and every time I have a new secret chat. I delete it and it appears again. How do I fix it?


Dax's picture

Delete the folder named "harbour-sailorgram" located in /home/nemo/.local/share (resets the application) :)

Ingvix's picture

If you could just fix the notification problems and so that it would not make a noise when I type a message on my pc to someone else. I know when I send messages so it's only annoying. For now I'm using jollagram because its notifications works fine. Otherwise I would prefer this one.

Dax's picture

Ok, I can fix that.

Sorry for the issue! :)

Ingvix's picture

Mäy I also suggest to have a easy way to disable the notifications as I prefer to not have my phone giving notifications when I'm using telegram on PC. Android doesn't have this kind of feature and I always have to go all the way to the notification settings to turn it off.
