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
Install the APK from signal.org instead! This flatpak will fill continuously unnecessarily fill your storage and if you eventually run out, it will 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 to be able to boot back into Linux to delete this version of Signal and other data on my drive (mainly backups). Besides that, Signal is a phenomenal service and if you can, please support them with donations and/or following their social media. :)

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.
Doesn't work at all for me. Im assuming there is something that needs to be done that isn't explain at all online or via the app so that its actually of some use.
While most parts work well, the program can have problems with mounted drives on Mint 19.0 v3.8.9. (issue https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Desktop/issues/2760) Installing the "official" version from the website will remedy this.
Works well however if you hide the 'Menu' from preferences, it's impossible to show the menu again or get back into the preferences to enable it again. Whilst having it enabled it also doesn't respect the 'Dark Theme' option.
Der Messenger funktioniert gut. Er verschlüsselt und funktioniert auch mit dem Phone. Leider braucht er doch recht lange zum syncronisieren und Video/Voice gibt es mit diesem Linux Client nicht.
Signal funktioniert und macht was es soll. Was will man mehr von einem Messengern. Vielen Dank
Works as expected. Thank you :)
I'm not able to get Signal to open up on my computer. This has nothing do with the application as I'm not even able to use it since I can not open. I will revist the review once I'm able to test and use the application.
Едно от добрите приложение.
