LibreSignal

Added by Mzee Mzee over 1 year ago

Hello guys,

Just one quick question: Did anybody manage to get LibreSignal (https://fdroid.eutopia.cz/) to work on Replicant? I would love to use it but unfortunately I can't install it using the F-Droid app. Thanks a lot for any hints.

Cheers,
Mzee

I'm sorry, but I think that project doesn't exist anymore: https://github.com/LibreSignal/LibreSignal#the-project-was-abandoned-because-of-httpsgithubcomlibresignallibresignalissues37issuecomment-217211165

You could give Kontalk or other alternatives a try...

Hello MySelf,

Thank you very much for your reply. I think it's a real shame that things turned out the way they did. My dream would be to use an app for communicating, which is as easy as WhatsApp and free software on all levels at the same time.
I will try to give Kontalk a try but the most recent version I can find on F-Droid is Version 3.0 (beta 3) from 2014; even after updating the F-Droid repos. Did you manage to install it on your device? If yes, please let us know how...

Also, please let us know about any other usable apps for communicating freely and secure.

Hmm, seems there is something wrong inside your F-Droid settings. If I start my F-Droid (v0.99.2 stable) and search for Kontalk I could install the current v3.1.10 (from 5/17/2016), which requires Android 2.3 or newer - so this shouldn't be a problem, too.

In my "Repositories" only the F-Droid repo is checked, nothing else. What are your settings here?

Also, please let us know about any other usable apps for communicating freely and secure.

It depends on what you're searching for, exactly. I never used WhatsApp and/or Signal and so I'm not the best person for a question like this. AFAIK Kontalk should be a WhatsApp alternative (in look & feel), some people said...

I personally prefer a simple XMPP client, like the Conversations app with its OMEMO encryption, for example.
But just ask the F-Droid store for more alternatives like:

Happy testing シ

Thanks a lot for your reply again. Apparently, my F-Droid app was just heavily outdated. I updated it by deleting the cache and now I also managed to install Kontalk. I'll give it a try tomorrow.
