I tried to install this app, but I faced error:

Status: dep-resolution-failed

Extra details:

nothing provides libQt5Core.so.5(Qt_5) neede by harbour-sailbook-8.4.1.armv7hl

My phone is Intex Aqua Fish, Sailfish version inside of it: Haapajoki version 2.0.5.6

You need to have the lasted sfos 2.1.0.11, or you can compile it yourself with the older SDK.

Thanks for the update. One small issue has reappeared.

When on mobile, the messages and notifications screen doesn't load as the "no internet, try again" screen appears. Works fine on wifi.

Thanks

Sailbook's picture

We have fixed again ;)

swimmingd's picture

please make the older version available? the last one which had the ability to logout?

Sailbook's picture

We have found a solution for the logout we will fix it this weekend.

itdoesntmatt's picture

is there a plan to open source it? just for security reasons since it is a third party client on something quite private

Sailbook's picture

No sorry

swimmingd's picture

i don't see any log out button under settings? how do i log out or change accounts?

Sailbook's picture

Sorry not possible on this moment.

We need to wait for the new QTwebkit when Jolla like to release that.

swimmingd's picture
  • that's quite strange because in the previous version i could log out no problem. any way i can roll back to that version? also when does jolla usually release their webkits?
Sailbook's picture

Yes we know but Facebook has done some changes. That's the resion we can not easy add this like before adding this again.

We are waiting for it we dont know.

swimmingd's picture

can i roll back to the previous version then?

VinodhRajamani's picture

Hi,

Can you please bring back the back button instead of having it in the pulley menu? It was much comfortable that way.

minitreintje's picture

You can change this behavior in Settings :)

skyjumper's picture

I love the new version!

Within the messaging section, can you add the ability to delete messages?

Sailbook's picture

Hi,

For that we need to wait for the new QTwebkit when Jolla like to release that.

Hi, thank you for providing a native facebook solution. the menu bar customization is great. Few small questions/remarks:
  - french translation seems to have been done with google translate :/. Do you plan to use a tool like transifex? You'll have better translations.
  - The notifications on events view are not removed automatically
  - I'd let things like events and fb parameters in the bottom bar by default

Good job otherwise!

Sailbook's picture

Hi,

We dont have done the translation it's done by someone else. We can not use TransFlex becoss Sailbook is not opensource then we have to pay on transflex.

About the event we will take a look on that, thanks for the info.

Finally switched to your app after using facebook lite :) very impressive, beautiful app, in particular inbuilt private messaging and notifications. I also like the ambience and button choice options. What about possibility to add search to pulley menu? imo icons are very sailfish-like :D and I love apps that use sailing/sea orientated names and icons - very unlike :)

Will you maybe add a background deamon for notifications? I think I only get notifications when the app is open (which is no problem btw). either way, i won't go back to another facebook app. many thanks!

Sailbook's picture

Hi,

We will see if we can add a search button into the next version...

About a deamon we are look into that what will be the best option, this will come also into next version's...

Thanks!

skyjumper's picture

wow a daemon would be fantastic! Thanks for that.

Caballlero's picture

thanks for the v.8. The main new icon is pretty. But the new icons into the app NOT look sailfish os style. i prefered v7.3.

Sailbook's picture

Sorry to hear you dont prefered the new icons.

palikao's picture

Some questions:

 

1) where are previous versions? I do prefer v7

 

2) where is the nice and proper previous icon?

 

3) where are previous comments? and previous suggestions..?

Sailbook's picture

Hi,

1) where are previous versions? I do prefer v7

Removed and not possible to download anymore.

2) where is the nice and proper previous icon?

We can not use any icons with the F logo in it, this is not allowed by Facebook itself.

3) where are previous comments? and previous suggestions..?

Simple ones a week i clean up the comments (when fixed).

palikao's picture

1) But.. why??? :(
2) Ok, but.. An "S" instead of the "f"??? It would be more correct!
3) I don't think it's useful, it'a history!

I don't think I will upgrade..
