This project is about extending gabble, the Telepathy XMPP connection manager. While mainline gabble is quite conservative in its XMPP features, some features are essential for use within mobile environments, e.g. notebooks or smartphones with unstable network. Some work has been done for:

  • Stream Management
  • Message Carbons
  • Chat Markers
  • HTTP File Upload
  • User Avatar
  • Message Archive Management

Can you please compile it also for arm64 ? Thanks

Here you go! Unfortunately, I'm not able to test aarch64 by myself, good luck

Hi, thanks for this wonderful package. With more recent Firmware versions your package is the only way to get the integrated XMPP to work since the original Jolla telepathy-gabble hasn't TLS 1.3 included. I would love to see an aarch64 build of this package to get XMPP running on an Xperia 10 II till Jolla hopefully fixes thir telepathy-gabble with one of their next Firmware releases.

Thank you :-)

telepathy-gabble-plus as a replacement for telepathy-gabble brings back the Settings -> Presence option on Xperia XA2

Thanks for that!

During installation of SFOS 4 the installer asked me to remove telepathy-gabble-plus, so I did.

Problem: Reinstallation in SFOS 4 does not work any more: In Storeman installation does not finish (spinning wheel spins forever). So I tried with CLI:

[root@Sailfish ~]# rpm -i telepathy-gabble-plus-0.18.4-9.armv7hl.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        telepathy-gabble conflicts with telepathy-gabble-plus-0.18.4-9.armv7hl

Any hints?


EDIT: Solved, was my own fault: Seems like I did not uninstall telepathy-gabble-plus before SFOS update, so during the update Jolla's heavily outdated telepathy package had overwritten and some parts of yours.

Executed "pkcon remove telepathy-gabble telepathy-gabble-plus", after that I could sucessfully install telepathy-gabble-plus, and after a reboot it worked.

It works great together with the share plugin. Thank you for it.
Are there any Plans for implementing MUC and OMEMO too?

noonien's picture

Hi, I'm glad that it works for you!

MUC would not only need group chat support in the user interface (aka jolla-messages) but also some work on gabble itself, as MUC tends to be troublesome on unstable networks. Stuff like MUC-MAM and stream-management with reconnection would help. Still a lot of work to do.

OMEMO is another big topic, maybe I'll find some free time to get it integrated, though.
