Fonctionne parfaitement, sans aucun bug ou crash, et de façon fluide, tout en préservant ma vie privée.(Works perfectly, without any bugs or crashes, and smoothly, while preserving my privacy). Signal #1 !
After using if for months I didn't had once an issue. frequently updated and maintained.
I confirm @meir's answer. "The version in Software Manager is expired -- do NOT install it! Install from signal.org"
Awesome App. Awful Mint Software Manager! The version in Software Manager is expired -- do NOT install it! Install from signal.org using Synaptic Package Manager (or apt from the CLI)!
It is awesome app. Speaking freely is priceless! - https://signal.org/download/
It works well, but the version is not kept sufficiently up to date and Signal does not allow you to send messages, once it is outdated. I had to go on signal.org to get the latest version by adding their ppa and you have to couple the desktop client again, so all the chats will be gone. It is highly recommended to use the Signal ppa from the start.
i installed signal on a many destibutions and it work absolutely fine. unfortunatly you'll miss your last post. Everything else will show up as soon as it will be posted.
Out of date - I'm getting a message that this version of Signal has expired when I try to run it
I have been using Signal on the desktop for a few years now. No major issues and they update often. I like the ability to have a bigger screen for reading and a full keyboard for typing. It works without issue for text, multi-media, voice and web conference (one to one and group). Signal has become the tool of choice with work and others and the desktop edition makes it very useful and easy.
* Warning* Install the APK from signal.org instead! This flatpak will fill continuously fill your storage with unnecessarily data and when you run out, it'll be a pain trying to sign back in to Linux (especially if your drive is encrypted). This happened to me and I ended up needing to boot into Windows, set up a Linux Mint ISO file on a USB, boot from it and then delete enough items in my trash bin (which fortunately wasn't encrypted) to be able to free up space and boot back into Linux. Then on to delete this version of Signal and other data filling up the drive (mainly backups) and then download the Signal APK from their website. Besides that, Signal is a phenomenal service. If you can, please support them with donations and/or following their social media :)
Works fine until you want to save an image to your home directory. It saves, then you go over and look for the file and it's not there. Apparently this is intentional by the maintainer (see https://github.com/flathub/org.signal.Signal/issues/181#issuecomment-808886070 ) Get the original from signal.org instead.
This is a great app and service, but installing the deb pkg will save alot of disk space: #1. add repo and key: wget -O- https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt/keys.asc | gpg --dearmor > signal-desktop-keyring.gpg sudo mv signal-desktop-keyring.gpg /usr/share/keyrings/ 2#. Add our repository to your list of repositories echo 'deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/signal-desktop-keyring.gpg] https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt xenial main' |\ sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list # 3. Update your package database and install signal sudo apt update && sudo apt install signal-desktop
Ao usar o signal desktop algumas mensagens não são enviadas. Precisa solucionar esse bug.
Love Signal & Like Signal Desktop. Keep up the good work!
until now it works like a dream
23/06/2020 installed from software centre on mint 19.3, works flawlessly. 5*
As mentionned by lnxmntadol the one from "software Manager" is not working (3.7) with Linux Mint 19.3 Cinamon, blocked in the middle of the installation. I installed the one from Signal from the website and it does work like a charm.
I give 5 for the version from the Signal original website repository. It works flawlesly on Linux Mint 19.x. The one from "Software Manager" seems to be a Flatpack type distribution package, wich I am uninstalling it.
Once the UI loads it's usable, but it takes so long to boot I rarely use it on desktop. I attempted to boot the app literally 12 minutes ago and it's still loading.
