Whisperfish - The unofficial SailfishOS Signal client

Ah okay, now I understand. Thanks for the explanation!

I made an issue on Gitlab for Sender Keys. Gabriel has mostly finished the back end work. This will also imply that we need unidentified sending/sealed sending in Whisperfish, which greatly reduces the metadata that Signal gets from the Whisperfish client. More privacy, yay!

@direc85 and I are working very hard to get beta.13 out. A long while ago, I opened submissions for a new application icon. Whisperfish has evolved far beyond what was given to us as Whisperfish 0.5 by Andrew, and I think the time is right to pick a winner.

I have picked my four favourite proposals, out of very many submitted.
I think you will appreciate how well they convey “Signal” and Sailfish, without implicating either brand.
You can vote for your favourite here below.

To further help you decide, you can have a look at @gamag’s post on Gitlab, which shows these icons in their context on the home screen.

I will close the poll when our glorious 0.6.0-beta.13 hits, or when it becomes obvious on which one the community votes. We’ll need some extra time to get the icon packaged and ready, and you will see it hit the Storeman soon™.

May it be possible to add this choice to the list?

Apparently not after the first five minutes of posting a poll. Let’s have the likes on your post count towards the voting, then, @pherjung.

Yessss ! (^_^) b

Maybe security-dashes should surround the entire fish - as it continues the essential idea of Signal.

The three dots are awesome ! I even prefer them placed just above the centerline of the fish - as drawn on your sketch … the fish also looks a bit more streamlined on the sketch.

Thanks for your contribution ! :slight_smile:

Let’s maybe consider the current voting as a round for the concept, and we can have a second round for the exact variant :wink:

The picture that @pherjung posts is also one by @baxyz, FYI.

If I might add a sarcastic comment: given that Whisperfish is probably a bit more leaky compared to Signal itself, we might want to cut the dashed line at some place :smiley:

With so many dashed is looks like the fish is imprisoned (in a fish farm)

If I may chip in with one thought:

I would prefer if the background color remained cyan-like rather than the royal blue.

Reasoning:

  1. Traditionally, WF has used a cyan-ish icon
  2. many messaging icons on SFOS are cyan-ish (“Messages”, “Browser”)
  3. Royal blue-ish is used by Twitter, Microsoft, Facebook (and yes, Signal), for some reason everyone thinks blue is the only color in the world.

Let’s stay “unlike”.

I’ve heard the same thought from a friend. Let’s consider this voting as a first round on the concept, and then propose a few variants and maybe vote again :slight_smile:

Yes, we could try new variants and backgrounds after the vote.

FYI, about the blue color, that’s because humanity is not only one culture and colors definitively depend on the culture; however, the blue color seems to be the most universal.
Just an example: check loyalty #54 in Colours in Cultures — Information is Beautiful

This is a really cool chart, @baxyz, thanks for sharing. Very much appreciated.

Hi,

My friend bought a new phone and installed Signal on that. But I can’t receive nor send messages to her anymore on my Whisperfish. On Signal desktop everything works fine and messages that I send show up on Whisperfish. What can I do to fix this?

Here are some logs

Go into Settings, enable developer mode. Then go to your friends session, swipe right, pull down to Reset identity key, let it be reset. Then pull down again to reset secure session. That should fix it in theory, but I’m not sure what the rate limit exceeded error means in this case.

That did the trick. Thanks for the help.

Since a few days back I can only send send messages from whisperfish when connected to wifi. When starting whisperfish while connected to 4G (and not wifi) the whisperfish log say:

QConnmanTechnologyInterface::scanReply() "No carrier"

I can however still receive whisperfish messages and other services like browsing, mail and phone calls works without problems.

I have not done any changes to whisperfish or SFOS installation lately. Running beta 12 on SFOS 4.4.0.72.

Anyone else who has seen this problem?

That’s interesting. In principle, Qt has no business with the network logic. Could you run Whisperfish in verbose mode, and get me the logs?

Thanks! I didn’t find a way to attach logs in PM so I created an issue:
