I used the official version of TextSecure from Google Play for some time. Now I uninstalled it (via Google Play) and tried to install TextSecure Jolla Edition from Jolla Store. But the installation doesn't work (tried several times):

  • opened Jolla Store and went to TextSecure Jolla Edition
  • selected install
  • after some seconds Jolla Store suddenly closed and I was on home screen (this should not happen!). Jolla Store was on home screen as an active cover. When I opened it again (started really fast, so doesn't seem to have been unloaded), it showed TextSecure Jolla Edition as being installed.
  • but: launcher shows no icon for TextSecure Jolla Edition!

I still can install other apps from Jolla Store, including Android apps. My Jolla has several gigs of free memory.

Any ideas?

Do you still have some temporary or data files left over from the PlayStore TextSecure version ? Did you only remove the App oder did you also cleared its cache and data beforehand ?

You can manually remove the stored TextSecure data with root rights by removing the /data/data/org.thoughtcrime.securesms folder.

This will remove all stored conversations aswell as the encryption key.

This means you need to reregister your device upon new installing.

I just removed the Google Play version without clearing cache and data. The directory /data/data/org.thoughtcrime.securesms does not exist; a find from / for 'org.thoughtcrime.securesms' didn't show any occurrences. Is there any other directory I should clean?

Not that I know of. Hmm... is there anything in the logs ? journalctl command can show you the logs. I would filter out everything with apk (so | grep apk). Maybe you can find an error message somewhere that can tell you what is going on.

I uninstalled Google service by going through the install steps, just the opposit direction. You could also try installing the apk through terminal which might sometimes work. You might want to make some space and clean up your btrfs as well.

@leszek: journalctl indeed shows a suspicious line:

Okt 05 22:44:58 Jolla systemd[1]: Started Myriad Alien Dalvik.
Okt 05 22:44:58 Jolla apkd[607]: Asking ACL to install (inside chroot): /data/app//incoming/org.thoughtcrime.securesms.apk
**Okt 05 22:44:59 Jolla[1300]: 10-05 22:44:59.302  1565  1760 E ActivityManager: Failed to match the Native-Call request type.**

@inte: I tried apkd-install:

root@Jolla:/home/nemo> apkd-install org.thoughtcrime.securesms.apk
method return sender=:1.5 -> dest=:1.309 reply_serial=2
   boolean true

..but this leads to the same error message in journal.

There are a few questions on tjc regarding this error message, for instance [BUG] Can't install apk files after update But this doesn't help either. :-/
