Idk, i really love how i dont have to open the app to receive messages every timebi reatart the phone, but today, afterbi deleted the other working Telgram'me app, the recipient toldbme that they could not hear my Voice Messages due to no volume. I could play back the message and hear it on my side tho

Is the project still alive? There hasn't been any updates in a while.

Bocephus's picture

In the latest version, anytime I open the stickers page, the program freezes.

eisen's picture

Here too.

rossholmes's picture

Hmm, I don't experience this on my latest Sailfish running on Xiaomi Redmi 5+ device

I have a weird sound problem that I hope has an easy fix: all system sounds are diasabled/set to 0% im ambiences, so as expected I don't get sound notifications for new messages. However, if I am in the app reading in chat A and I get a mesaage in chat B I hear a beep noise. Could it be that that is somehow a "media sound"?

Hi there, thank you for the application! I would like to request some help as I am not able to verify my phone number. I dont get the code on my phone - most probably my country is blocked(Hungary). I was trying to authenticate by using other phone and I managed to receive an sms code what I entered,but unfortunately I get a phone code error. I am not familiar with adding proxy, could you please link me or describe it briefly? Many thanks for any support,and happy new year

rossholmes's picture

Dont worry, I have managed to login getting the code from my linux app.

deedend's picture

Hi all, great app really. I use it instead of the android client, I hope the development is still active!

noahhhh's picture

when i try to send stickers,it shows no responded by system

glanternier's picture

Given the problems that we have with Android app calls in SailfishX, implementing calls on Depecher would be a live saver :-)

Good day!
Some icons in the channel do not correspond to the owners.

Would you consider to add a nested webview for previewing citated telegram-links? For now citates don´t have a preview and open in browser, not in application.

alex000090's picture

Good day!
After update the program to 0.7.1 version notifications dissapeared. I test also 0.7.2 and 0.7.4 versions and there is no notification too. On last 0.6.x all work fine.

I installed Depecher and it seems really great, i would also use this native app instead of the original Android App, if there was a possibility to deactivate the erase conversation option. I am scared to by mistake delete my conversations. Thats the only reason why i desinstalled the app again. Such a possibility to active or deactivate the delete function in the drop down menu would probably be really easy to implement. Please take it in consideration for a future version of Depecher :)

asmfarid's picture

This is a great app. Is it possible to implement the app lock feature?

yusssufff's picture

hi! i did install depecher then i decided to erase it (before a sailfish update i like to clear the memory).

But now that the app is erased, i can still find traces of it in the file browser.

The file browser can't erase these files even if the app is already erased, writing 'permission denied'.

Without being a developper or opening the terminal, how could i simply clean my phone from those left over files?

thanks a lot.

here the type of files: "ssu_openrepos-BlackSailer_release.repo" or "openrepos-BlackSailer" (in /home/pk-zypp or in /home/.zypp- or in /var/cache/zypp....) or "depecher" (in etc/)


BlackSailer's picture

Hello! All zyp files are about repository on openrepos you should delete repo from storeman(if it's possible) 


Also you must delete tdlibjson package. Find it on openrepos. 

yusssufff's picture


Deleting the repo from storeman gets rid of the "ssu_..." file.

But there are many files that are staying still and unerased after deleting the repo... many "openrepos-BlackSailer" files (one in /home/.pk-zypp-dist-upgrade-cache/raw, one in /home/.pk-zypp-dist-upgrade-cache/solv, one in /var/cache/zypp/packages, one in /var/cache/zypp/solv) and a "depecher" file (in /etc)...

BlackSailer's picture

First four are from zypper package manager, they have nothing to do with depecher app. 

Is at /etc directory depecher a file? Isn't it a directory too? There should be conf file... 

yusssufff's picture

well its a folder named 'depecher' in the /etc and when trying to erase 'folder delete failed' is popping up...

yusssufff's picture

thanks for your great great app!

i already asked before but i wish to know how to locate and delete the tdlibjson app separately (before each sailfish update its better to erase openrepos apps and reinstall them after i guess..)

But without using storeman i just wish to be able to locate tblibjson! with file manager for exmeple...where is it??


thanks a lot!! and again, what a work your app!

BlackSailer's picture

Hello! Find tdlibjson in storeman and erase it =)

What's your handle on Telegram again? I'll send screenshots.

csg1976's picture

Strange things happening in my chat list. Lots of chinese accounts, hidden lists and something about needing to update my client to enjoy the latest privacy settings.

BlackSailer's picture

I do not understand. What is hidden list? Empty item in chat list? 


Chinese accounts? Do you talk a lot with China? 


Who is telling you to update client? 

zuyev's picture

Thank you!

Today the registration has passed.

I think you should configure proxy, seems that telegram is blocked in your country
