Hi @Khertan. I created a github pull request to fix the Sailfish version of ownNotes (the version here generates an error on sync for me) and add some improvements.

However, I see from the Issues on gitHub you're not supporting the Sailfish version right now. In this case, would you be happy for me to offer an updated Sailfish version from my own repo?

Really usefull app!!! The only thing I'm missing is sharing notes with others... Like shoppinglists etc. Of course I can share files via owncloud, but they appear in shared folder which is not accessible with ownnotes


Thank you!

The error is an error on raising the authorization error ... That s too much error :)

Thanks for reporting it. Will be fixed in 1.5.1.


The language of the apps is set to follow the system language.

Running 1.5.0 on SailfishOS and on sync this error appears: sync error <type 'ExceptionsUnbound.LocalError'>:local variable 'err' referenced before assigment

I'm running my owncloud 6 on a vps. Is any additional config required?

(ps: thanks for mentioning my name as nl-translator ;), but I don't see where I can change language ;))

Now it complains about missing libc.so.6. I got this same problem with another app, I will try to find that out.

Arg ... will be hard to understand what happen without any device ...

That s running in 586 vm emulator.

Could you launch with terminal and say me if some log error are reported ?

Thanks for your report
