Pix-Art Messenger becomes blabber.im

The cooperation of the two projects blabber.im and Pix-Art Messenger will be further expanded in November 2020.

Until now, blabber.im was only the default server in Pix-Art Messenger. In the future, the Android app Pix-Art Messenger will be continued under the name blabber.im.

What you can expect:

  • Range of functions remains the same
  • Support chat rooms are merged
  • Colors and logos are adapted to blabber.im
  • App is still available for free in Google Play Store and F-Droid Store

If we can't fix your problem there, you can open an issue here, detailing your problem, how to reproduce it and provide logs. See instructions below on how to create log files.

How to create debug logs? (adb)

GNU/Linux, OSX and other Unix-like systems:

  1. First install The Android Debugging Bridge, if not already present.

    Debian and derivates like Ubuntu / Linux Mint
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get update adb
    # Debian Jessie or older:
    # sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb
    openSUSE 42.2 and 42.3
    sudo zypper ref
    sudo zypper install android-tools
    openSUSE Tumbleweed

    here you need to add the following repo (e.g. via Yast): http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/hardware/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/

    alternatively you have the option to use the 1 Click installer https://software.opensuse.org/package/android-tools

    other systems

    install adb using a method appropriate for your system

  2. Now open a terminal in a directory of you're choice, or navigate to the directory using cd.

  3. Follow steps [6] to [10] of the Windows instructions.

  4. Start outputting your log to a file on your computer. We will be using logcat.txt. Enter:

    $ adb -d logcat -v time | grep -i blabber.im > logcat.txt
  5. Follow the remaining steps [12] and [13] of the Windows instructions.


  1. Download Google's SDK-platform tools for your operating system:


  2. In case they were not included: You also need the ADB_drivers for your version of Microsoft Windows:


  3. Extract the zip-archive (e.g. to C:\ADB\)

  4. Open the command line (CMD) using the start menu: Start > Execute: cmd

  5. Navigate to the directory you extracted the zip to as following. We will be using C:\ADB\

    cd ADB
  6. On your smartphone open the settings and search for the item Developer Options. If this option is not already present on your phone you will need to unlock it beforehand. To do this navigate to Settings > About phone, there locate Build number (or similar) and tap it 7-times in succession. You should now see a notification, that you are now a developer. Congrats, Developer Options are now available in your settings menu.

  7. Inside Developer Options search activate the setting USB-Debugging (sometimes just called Android Debugging).

  8. Connect your phone to your computer via USB cable. The necessary drivers should now be downloaded and installed if not already present. On Windows all necessary drivers should be downloaded automatically if you followed step [2] beforehand. On most GNU/Linux systems no additional action is required.

  9. If everything worked out, you can now return to the command line and test if your device is being recognised. Enter adb devices -l; you should see output similar to:

    > adb devices -l
    List of devices attached
    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *
    042111560169500303f4   unauthorized
  10. If your devices is labelled as unautorized, you must first accept a prompt on your phone asking if debugging over USB should be allowed. When rerunning adb devices you should now see:

    > adb devices
    List of devices attached 
    042111560169500303f4    device
  11. Start outputting your log to a file on your computer. We will be using logcat.txt in C:\ADB\. Just enter the following (without > into the command line):

    > adb -d logcat -v time | FINDSTR blabber.im > logcat.txt
  12. Now reproduce the issue encountered.

  13. Stop logging (Ctrl+C). Now take a close look at your log file and remove any personal and private information you may find before sending it together with a detailed description of your issue, instructions on how to reproduce to me. You can use GitHub's issue tracker: Issues
