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.

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!

zuyev's picture

Today the registration has passed.

BlackSailer's picture

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

zuyev's picture

I could not confirm the number. Swipe to the right could not do. The window moved only 3 millimeters.

predator2019's picture

@Blacksailer. Thank you for your work. really good app, lke it very much. this was the last step to give up android forever!

zuyev's picture

Not working. I can’t confirm the phone number. XA2 Plus,

predator2019's picture

the same on my account. i confirmed my phonenumber on an android phone or the linux app. after the it works on my phone.

BlackSailer's picture

So it shows up when you register at first time? 

predator2019's picture

Well. I can enter the phone number and then i have to wait and wait. Then i took an android device connected via WLAN and i receive the registration code on the android. Entering the code on the SFOS Device solved it for me and i can use depecher on mein SFOS. A regular registration process has not been successful on my SFOS without the round about via android.

BlackSailer's picture

Hi, did you configure proxy? 

carmenfdezb's picture

Hi @BlackSailer, thank you so much for the update! I have a question about tdlib: will you update it to v1.5? I've read that animated stickers are supported in that version.

BlackSailer's picture

Hi, it will migrate to 1.5 but closer to winter

DameCENO's picture

Thanks BlackSailer for your awesome app.
I will like to know why I am stuck at 0.5 I always see new versions but storeman never gives me the option to upgrade, can I fix that?
I am on Jolla Phone Software version 2.2

BlackSailer's picture

Have you tried to manually download from openrepos site and install it? 

DameCENO's picture

Thanks for the reply, yes I downloaded the 0.7 and tried installing it manually to no avail, I am not even sure I was given an error code, just wouldn't be installed. I have tried pkcon refresh already to no avail. It is unfair I am using the app right now missing all new features...


Just uninstalled the 0.5 and tried downloading the 0.7.2 and I get this depencies errrors needed at tdlibjson1.4.0-1.5.3.jolla.armv7hl not found

Now how do I remedy that?

BlackSailer's picture

In short - you are have too old os version. New Tdlib requires os more than 3.x


Wrote down full version please and write me in telegram. I'll try to build lib for your version

DameCENO's picture

That would be awesome, thank you very much as I do not know which year I am upgrading to Sailfish 3, alot has been damaged from our beloved OS.

The version of Depecher I am stuck at is 0.5.0 and I am on Jolla Phone OS version, even as my phone keep thinking I am on 3.0, how can I send you a message on telegram?

BlackSailer's picture

Install tdlibjson from here -


and after that try to install depecher last version

PawelSpoon's picture

Wow, just shared something to a depecher chat ! Thanks !
