Can't download it

Doesn't login

localhorst's picture

Does not work, i cant login.

Thesix's picture

From what I can tell this app is broken for current SailfishOS releases and thus should be removed from theis repo. It's totally frustrating to install something on your phone that just does not work. Just my 2 cents

login fails: 

error code :303

Login fails on FP2 alpha6 release.

chris7chris's picture

Can't login too. What can I do to get a working app? Waiting for the next update?

dirksche's picture

Login failed. Loop like MooCrumpus. Use "Sailorgram[only latest stable 0.80...]". That works

MooCrumpus's picture

can't log in, loop adding phone number.

riboon's picture

Have the same problem. High energie consumption on and nexus 4 :(

Is there a way to get the daemon less hungry?

how to install

riboon's picture

Have you already installed the warehouse app? Then use the app.

Overcome the problems with the latest SF update with the beta version of SailerGram on GitHub I mean it work at least for me.

erixd's picture

Unfortunately Dax has abandoned his SFOS projects:

There is a semi-solution: CODeRUS (who else? ;-)) has provided a workaround for the beta quite some time ago and there are builds on Mer's OBS:

Anyway, I hope someone would adopt/fork Sailorgram... it was quite awesome...

MooCrumpus's picture

unfortunately, I can't create credentials after a clean install. Trying my phone number just minimizes the app. It is a loop. Can't get any further.

chipsetsv's picture

Cool app, but doesn't work on

SKD's picture

For me it doesn't work since yesterday when I updated to The app just doesn't start anymore.

Any advice?

foilfencer's picture

Same for me.

Laurent_C's picture

Same for me. Doesn't work any more on SFOS

claustn's picture

any news about the new version ?
could you add a setting to let saiorgram save directly images into gallery? where are the cached images and videos stored ? How could we free this cache ?

ade's picture

Here is the stable version freshly compiled with Sailfish OS SDK 1701 for now:

Thanks. Works as it should.

@Dax Since the Sailfish OS update to v. Sailorgram refuses to start:

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$
[D] unknown:0 - Using Wayland-EGL
[W] unknown:0 - Could not find any zN.M subdirs!

Ingvix's picture

I'm experiencing the same. Are you going to deliver some hotfix for the Qt 5.6 or is the 0.9 anywhere near usable yet?

Auvo's picture

I am also experiencing quite a huge battery drain on J1 phone running Sailorgram. Before Sailorgram I had at least 36 hours of battery usage, and after installing Sailorgram it has been about 12-18 hours.

fabri00m's picture

Great frontend for telegram messenger. One issue I am facing on Nexus 4 with Sailfish and latest Sailorgram app is high battery consumption when running in daemon mode. Has this been reported before?

Ingvix's picture

Yesterday I noticed that sticker button doesn't function anymore in Send a file menu. It does nothing. Maybe the API has changed somehow? I guess it'll get fixed with the 0.9. Looking forward to it.

Dear Dax,

Thank you for your great Sailorgram. It works perfect with  Jolla-1. With Jolla C it has some problems. E.g. during start up, it does not find the existing contacts and discussions as Telegram for Android has. When I send the message with Sailorgram, it is not shown in Telegram Andr. Looking forward to 0.9 test version during the end of November. As summary, there is something problems in registration with Jolla C at the moment with 0.802. However excellent work. Please keep going. ☺☺☺

Are you still developing SailorGram? I wonder because the last release was in february.
It would be great to have some more features and looks like this is the only reliable telegram app on OR for Sailfish.
