Encryption problem for me as well. Did I miss to install sth?

Thanks for the app Thaodan!!

I could add both of my skype accounts. Contact Sync work, but when i try to send a message i get an Error:

Could not connect to (account name) due to a problem with encryption.

After this skype account go offline. Any ideas?

Similar issue here, without the encryption message. No idea if it's related to my configuration, to my provider, or to Skype, or to this app.

do you have a live/msn account using skype?

Do you can look at journalctl whats happening?

If this doesn't help the best why would be to run telepathy-haze like this:

  HAZE_DEBUG=all  HAZE_PERSIST=1 HAZE_LOGFILE=/tmp/haze.log telepathy-haze

Do you have libpurple-nss installed?


BTW: I Can't view your embed pic.

Hi. libpurple-nss is installed, but the same error.

I corrected the image link.

Simple conversation works perfect, but chats with more then one use doesn't work.

don't now whats happened with the jolla servers, if its no longer aviable I'll add a replacement.


EDIT: please do pkcon refresh, there's just a new release for telepathy-haze this why you can't download the old one.

No problem with the installation here. Also on

I haven't tested the actual chat (it's hard to find someone on Skype these days),  but thanks for the effort, Thaodan.
