Quick solution

devel-su
vi /usr/share/applications/jolla-messages.desktop
at the end of line  Permissions=Contacts;Messages;CommunicationHistory;Privileged;Ambience;Sharing;RemovableMedia add ;Pictures
it should looks like this Permissions=Contacts;Messages;CommunicationHistory;Privileged;Ambience;Sharing;RemovableMedia;Pictures
Save file

After relaunch Messages app it will be possible to save images from MMS

Thanks for reporting. Internal bug created.

Thanks for finding the reason. Indeed, “Pictures” is missing from the permissions of Messages app.

To be fixed on 4.4.0.

Thank, work great.
my last problem is that I can’t send an MMS

Sorry but I can’t help with this issue. My Jolla C can send MMS without problem.
So it looks like there is difference in MMS implementation in SailfishOS X and SailfishOS on Jolla C.

Hi
I don’t find a file called jolla-message.desktop but just a file called messages in /usr/share/applications
(and i have the same thing on my x10ii ir in the XA2 of my wife)

When i open it with gedit, i saw that:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Messages
X-MeeGo-Logical-Id=messages-ap-name
X-MeeGo-Translation-Catalog=messages
Icon=icon-launcher-messaging
Exec=/usr/bin/sailjail – /usr/bin/jolla-messages
Comment=Jolla messaging
MimeType=x-scheme-handler/sms;
X-Maemo-Service=org.sailfishos.Messages
X-Maemo-Method=org.sailfishos.Messages.openUrl

[X-Sailjail]
Permissions=Contacts;Messages;CommunicationHistory;Privileged;Ambience;Sharing;RemovableMedia
OrganizationName=org.sailfishos
ApplicationName=Messages

So something has changed between SailfishOS for Jolla C and SailfishOS X.
But it looks like the same file but without “jolla-” in name.

Just add Pictures to Permissions and it should work.

In fact, to begin smoothly (i’m not a dev or a computer scientist at all) i tried to find the file with nautilus via the gui of my debian.
But when i use the command line, i find the file !!!

@delocoyo can you show output of:

cat /usr/share/applications/jolla-messages.desktop

cat /usr/share/applications/jolla-messages.d
esktop
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Messages
X-MeeGo-Logical-Id=messages-ap-name
X-MeeGo-Translation-Catalog=messages
Icon=icon-launcher-messaging
Exec=/usr/bin/sailjail – /usr/bin/jolla-messages
Comment=Jolla messaging
MimeType=x-scheme-handler/sms;
X-Maemo-Service=org.sailfishos.Messages
X-Maemo-Method=org.sailfishos.Messages.openUrl

[X-Sailjail]
Permissions=Contacts;Messages;CommunicationHistory;Privileged;Ambience;Sharing;RemovableMedia;Pictures
OrganizationName=org.sailfishos
ApplicationName=Messages

@delocoyo you made mistake, this file should looks like this

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Messages
X-MeeGo-Logical-Id=messages-ap-name
X-MeeGo-Translation-Catalog=messages
Icon=icon-launcher-messaging
Exec=/usr/bin/sailjail – /usr/bin/jolla-messages
Comment=Jolla messaging
MimeType=x-scheme-handler/sms;
X-Maemo-Service=org.sailfishos.Messages

[X-Sailjail]
Permissions=Contacts;Messages;CommunicationHistory;Privileged;Ambience;Sharing;RemovableMedia;Pictures
OrganizationName=org.sailfishos
ApplicationName=Messages

You have added Pictures after RemovableMedia so in wrong line.

ok thanks, I dont know why I got it like has to be added Pictures at the end. I give it a try now.

Sorry I made small mistake, now it’s fixed
