    Try again later...
    The servers are overloaded, again... My account works but very slowly now (couple of hours ago it was bloody fast)

    I made the age range as wide as possible and the radius as long as possible. No matches any time of day I try it.

    Tinder is weird place sometimes... 

    Some days I get more then 1 match and then for weeks nothing.

    Seems to work very well, but based on what does the application decide to show which of my profile pictures to display in the corresponding pulley menu entry? I have 2 that are available in Facebook's profile picture album, but won't show up in the profile menu.

    minitreintje's picture

    Which pulley menu entry?

    Your profile picture can be set yet in Sailfinder, you need to do that with the official Tinder app.

    I can only download them from Tinder.

    kihi's picture

    Ah, ok, I figured the profile pulley menu entry where you can swipe through your pictures also offered some kind of selection mechanism, but I understand it just displays them.

    I'm still unsure based on what parameters it's decided which images are displayed (and which are not) but that might have more to do with the api than whith Sailfinder. I'll try later with the official app.

    minitreintje's picture

    Sailfinder doesn't decides anything.

    It just download the profile pictures as an array from Tinder and displays them in order (0 = 1st picture, 1= 2nd picture, ...). Pynder (the library behind Sailfinder) doesn't support at the moment the API to change & upload your profile pictures.

    kihi's picture

    ok, very clear. Thanks for the clarification!

    Does not work for me, it stack on loading people and does nothing more :(

    minitreintje's picture

    Make sure that your ranges in settings are big enough and don't use a pseudo account for Facebook since it search for people on Facebook.

    If that doesn't work, post the session.log from /home/nemo/.config/harbour-sailfinder/session.log.
    The log clears itself everytime you login.

    Everytime I need to login facebook when launch the app

    minitreintje's picture

    It doesn't remembers your login data? Then Facebook can't save cookies on your device for some reason.

    But you have to login everytime since I don't have the SECRET_APP_KEY from Tinder to request a long live token.

    Hello
    How do I install the latest version 0.7-1 of the application? The last update is not removed my earlier problem.
    Thank you.

    eisen's picture

    you can download the file on openrepos.net and copy it to your phone, i couldn´t install 0.7-1 from the store too. how ever here is the next report but the app worx most time. sometimes there comes an error when i click on more infos about a person:

    Return value of PyObject call is NULL: Traceback (most recent call last):

      File "/usr/share/harbour-sailfinder/qml/pages/tinder.py", line 423, in loadAbout
        pyotherside.send('getPersonsCommonInterests', persons[personsCounterNumberPersons].common_interests)

      File "/usr/share/harbour-sailfinder/qml/pages/pynder/models/user.py", line 49, in common_interests
        return [p for p in self._data['common_interests']]

    KeyError: 'common_interests'

    This is fixed in the V0.8 see Github

    eisen's picture

    thanks for your fast support, but for the new version 0.8-1 the warehouse app noticed an error again. it couldn´t find your repository... other devs are working.

    minitreintje's picture

    I can't reproduce that issue... Can you describe the exact error?

    Try this:
    1.remove Sailfinder
    2. disable my repo
    3. reboot
    4. enable my repo
    5. install Sailfinder

    If that doesn't work I need to contact Basil...

    eisen's picture

    to update to 0.9 there is the same problem, i did a new installation of sailfinder and the warehouse-store. it only says: couldn't find the repository...

    minitreintje's picture

    I emailed Basil to fix this problem but I haven't heard from him.

    I just upload the RPM packages to Openrepos.net from there I can't do anything anymore.

    Hello
    Thank you helped. Earlier in this way I tried to install version 0.6-2, but it appeared the error.

    SKD's picture

    I now updated to 0.7-1. Unfortunately it still doesn't work for me. The GPS icon is showing up now. I can also see the coordinates in the settings updating. But it still says "no match nearby". I put distance to max, and maximum age range. Still doesn't find anything.

    minitreintje's picture

    That's weird... The code behind no users nearby detects this when you can like people but the tinder servers don't send new people. I can't do much more from here. Have you tried the Android version?

    SKD's picture

    I tried but unfortunately it needs google play services in order to work but I didn't want to install google play.

    minitreintje's picture

    You can download Amazon Underground and use that one. I also don't want to install Google Play Services. The version from the Amazon App store is old but does the job to test your issue.

    SKD's picture

    Thanks for the update!

    The login is working now for me but it just says "no users nearby...". I also noticed that the gps icon doesn't show up even though it's activated in the setting. So if tinder searching on the basis of the gps location it might be because it doesn't get a gps signal for some reason...?! It's version 0.6-3 that I'm using.

    minitreintje's picture

    The GPS updater is only working for now when you are on the settings page.
    Also make sure that your range and age parameters are big enough

    Please go to the settings page and wait until the position has been updated (a few minutes) and accept the dialog.

    Hello
    I have the following problem with installing the latest version 0.6-2. :

    Transaction /1563_badeedea

    Status: repo-not-avaible

    Extra details:

    File './mw/armv7hl/dbus-python3-1.2.0-1.1.7.armv7hl.rpm' not found on medium 'https://releases.jolla.com/releases/latest/jolla/armv7hl/'

    minitreintje's picture

    You need dbus-python3 on your Jolla to install the latest release since I use it to display the notifications. I didn't saw that error on my Jolla when I installed Sailfinder.

    I will investigate if I can move the notifications to QML. But before that, have you tried to enable developper mode? The package is available in the developper repos from Jolla.

    Please let me know :)
