Unable to open Saailorgram after the new update 0.79-1. Crashing while opening. Any solution for this issue ?


Dax's picture

Delete the folder named "harbour-sailorgram" located in /home/nemo/.local/share (resets the application)

boebbele's picture

Reboot your phone?? Or uninstall the old version, then install the new version??


beak's picture

Thank you!!!!

boebbele's picture

Hey DAX! Thank you for this great update! It works very well. I'm happy :-)

I have found only one Error. Errorcode 400, messagesGetStickerSet, STICKERSET_INVALID.

I can not install a Stickerset. Long click on a received Sticker --> install don't work for me and produce this Error.

Dax's picture

It's the default sticker set?

Or an unofficial one? :)

boebbele's picture

No, it is the original stickerset. :-( I have it testet with stickers from different telegram accounts from friends.

Dax's picture

Ah, ok!

The original sticker set should be integrated with the client (I'm still looking how to do it) :D

boebbele's picture

I'm sure you can do also! :-)

I have a second problem: I can not send videos. 

Ingvix's picture

Great work. Now I can actually replace the android telegram with this one. One thing I noticed off the bat that there's no led notification yet. The sound is the main thing anyway. I assume the inverted message placement is coming in a later version?

Dax's picture

The LED blinks only when the screen is not active :)
This version is just a "checkpoint" for the upcoming 0.8, the inverted bubble position is planned for the 0.8

Ingvix's picture

Mine doesn't seem to do that. Not when the app is on nor when it's closed with unactive screen. Daemon is on as it does make a sound.

EDIT: Here's some more behaviour: If it's in conversation screen when closing or hiding the app it doesn't seem to make the message sound but notifications do appear on the notification screen and those notifications won't dissapear when opening the app. They do dissapear if exiting the conversation and entering it again.

Dax's picture

Which version of Sailfish are you running?

Ingvix's picture

The latest. It seems that the problem I said in EDIT doesn't always occur. Now I can't make it happen. I report if it happens again. Anyway the led doesn't go on when getting a message.

complimenti per lo sviluppo dax...prenditi un caffé a nome mio ;)

spidernik84's picture

Welcome back, Dax! :)

Bentornato :)

Dax's picture

Thanks :D

Great work with OKBoard btw, finally we have an italian dictionary :)

spidernik84's picture

Ahah it's a pleasure, such a small work compared to yours! Keep going! ;)

DameCENO's picture

Thanks for the app, I have been meaning to try telegram for a while, and decided today was the day. But I have installed the app and don't quite know how to have it sync my contacts, do I really need to add them all manually? A heads up on the usage of the app from any current user would be greatly appreciated

Dax's picture

Mmmmh, do you want an integration with your contacts? :)

Currently there is a "manual" way to do it: go to in the contacts page, there is a pull down menu with an option that allows you to add a phone number and its name.

I think that I implement SailfishOS' contact integration in the next version (currently in beta testing).

dyraig's picture

Once you do add this contact integration - would you please consider making it optional? NOT having this integration is one of the stronger points of any messenger client in my eyes... I like to have control over what I put in there... :-} Thanks a mil! (...and thanks another mil for writing this app in the first place... :-) )

Dax's picture

I've already thought that.
It will be disabled by default :)

foufoutos's picture

and one more thing if its poss...the typing message if my contact type :-)

SimoneDC's picture

i'm really enjoyin this client and it deserve all the 5 stars i rated it. But i thi.k that since you added bubbles (that IMHO are really far from SF style) other people names become too big and it looks like something is wrong in the app. If i can give you a tip, make that when you disable bubbles everything become as it was before, because I think it looked better. Thank you for developing that and cheers from a fellow italian sailor ;)

Dax's picture

It will be fixed in the next version :)

Ciao :P

foufoutos's picture

thank you for good job bro..only 2 big thinks.. notification light +ring when phone locked and still running the app when i swype to close from top

Dax's picture

The background service is in beta testing atm.

So everything like LED, clickable notifications and receive messages in the background (even when SailorGram is not running) will be available in the next version

Ingvix's picture

The different colours don't work for the face emojis with skin colour option. In the app it shows the default colour emoji and the selected colour after it as shown below.

Dax's picture

I have noticed that, too, I didn't know that there was emojis for different skin colors, I will fix it in the next version!

Thanks for reporting btw :)

tvicol's picture

Thank you for update.


Application is crashing after each attept to delete an encypted chat.

Also, starting an encryption chat seems to affect phone security code, as my security code is no longer recognised and I need to power cycle the phone.
