A running signald instance is needed and the user running slidge must have the permission to access its socket.


If you installed slidge and signald with apt/dpkg, add the slidge user to the signald group to ensure proper permissions.

Setting up a slidge component#

Refer to the slidge admin docs for generic instructions on how to set up a slidge component, and for slidge core configuration options.

slidgnal-specific config#

PREFER_PROFILE_NAME Signal contacts have both a profile name that they choose, and a local contact name that you set for them. Set this to true to favor the profile name they choose for their XMPP puppets. Useful if you have wrong contact names possibly caused by a signald bug.
