Axolotl (Signal) & Github issue status



  • I'm a user of Axolotl (Signal) app on RC and I like it a lot.
    Still, I miss some features, most important ones:

    • delete messages (57)
    • receiving multiple photos at once (58)*
    • sending multiple photos at once (-)
    • backup and restore (165)
      The numbers between brackets refer to Github issues regarding these subjects.
      *this does work when sending party shares photos via iOS Photo app. When the same photos are selected directly from Signal, I receive 1 photo multiple times in one message.

    I noticed some of the Github issues seem closed but not solved for me. Do I have to wait for an update? I noticed there is also a Milestone project. Perhaps I'm not interpreting the Github info correctly, but I would like to know if I should reopen an issue or make a new one?

    Also, I'm wondering if the 3rd issue mentioned is actually an Axolotl thing, or an issue of file choosers, like Gallery app or file manager? The first app does not allow selecting more than one, the second app does, but only one is inserted.

    I tried contacting axolotl-dev on Teleports/ Telegram about it, but I was unable to.



  • Hello @Alter and thank you for your interest about Axolotl!

    Do I have to wait for an update?

    Are you running the 0.8.7 version? Please check using the OpenStore that you are running the last version of Axolotl. If yes then you should have the patches. If you still reproduce issues then please comment on Github.

    Also, I'm wondering if the 3rd issue mentioned is actually an Axolotl thing, or an issue of file choosers, like Gallery app or file manager?

    I think it is an Axolotl thing. Can you please open an issue asking for that feature?

    I tried contacting axolotl-dev on Teleports/ Telegram about it, but I was unable to.

    What was not working there? I am part of that group but I don't remember messages from you. What happened?

    Yes, I'm running 0.8.7.
    I noticed issue 57 is still open, I've added a comment on closed issue 58. Can it be reopened?

    I opened issue 177 for this.

    I tried contacting axolotl-dev on Teleports/ Telegram about it, but I was unable to.

    I clicked the Telegram link on Axolotl.chat. I was asked to allow: tg:resolve?domain=axolotl_dev .Then the Telegram website opened with a button to go directly to axolotl-dev. Nothing happened. I expected to see a group chat screen in Teleports which I already had installed. Also, I registered my number upfront.
    All that happened in Teleports when I pressed the Telegram website button was a little colored line appeared for a moment in the top of the screen which moved. In settings, Teleports said connection was good.



  • @Alter that's a Teleports problem, please search for the group in teleports itself



  • @Fla In Teleports, I don't see a search box where I can search for groups. I can only enter a contact by phone number. Or is the option hidden somewhere? The main screen is blank with a menu in the left top corner, with saved messages, contacts, settings, night mode and about. I could't find a manual for Teleports. I've gone through the menu items, but don't see how?
