    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.

    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.

    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 ''

    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 :)

    gembiak's picture

    And where can I download the installation file dbus-python3? I have a developer mode switched on, but I can not install the application.

    eisen's picture

    it is not possible for non-developer to get this package. i don´t know how to get this... the openrepos-app sucks more and more.

    minitreintje's picture

    You can enable developper mode in Jolla settings.
    I can't fix this issue since I use dbus in Python for the notifications and later for the daemon.

    If I remove this as dependency I can't display the notifications anymore.

    hey, i've tried it today for the first time (never been logged in to tinder before either). after login screen there was a white page with the text "success" and a few seconds later the following error. i've tried it a few times now, always the same. can you tell me what's causing the issue?

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

    File "/usr/share/harbour-sailfinder/qml/pages/", line 277, in hintsHandler
    configFile = open("localConfiguration.cfg", 'r')

    FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden: 'localConfiguration.cfg'

    minitreintje's picture

    Hi, The issue is that Sailfinder reads his configuration file before it was created. I fixed the issue already in V0.6 but I wanted to implent notifications with that particular release before I release it. The update is around the corner in a couple of days...

    EDIT: I just pushed the update to Openrepos.

    minitreintje's picture


    Can you give some information about the moment when this error occured? I think it's related to Pynder (the module behind Sailfinder) which is still loading new people while we already try to get the first person.



    eisen's picture

    every time when i succesfully logged in there comes this loading symbol and nothing happens. before the update to 0.4 the loading symbol came not that often.


    minitreintje's picture

    I will push a new build in a couple of hours.
    Let me know then if it works...

    EDIT 1: I just pushed the update to

    EDIT 2: The not-loading issue isn't resolved completely, I get an 503 error which means that the service isn't available ... The OOM-killer wants to kill the app a few times before the error arises.

    You're right the previous version doesn't has the bug... Please stay tuned, I am looking into this.

    EDIT: I found the problem I guess, I can't reproduce the bug anymore. Please update to 0.4-3

    Can't install because of gpg-failure

    minitreintje's picture

    Works fine over here. I completly resetted my Jolla Phone to try this out and it installs without any problems.

    page "matches" doesn't work to me

    minitreintje's picture

    Have you already matched some people? Otherwise it won't work.
