Ok, I think I can guess what it could be. I created this folder manually: /storage/emulated/0/Telegram/Telegram Images/.
This directory /storage/emulated/0/Telegram/ may be blocked and only accessible for the Telegram app (at least on devices with Android > 9, API > 28). On my Android 11 test device there is no Telegram app.
However, the directory can be accessed via Companion, since the corresponding storage permission is declared there in the Manifest.
It’s the only remaining possibility why it won’t work for him (that the directory is only accessible to Telegram and he did NOT create this directory himself). My APKs work on all of my 16 test devices (Android 4.x, 5.x, 6, 7, 8.x, 9, 10, 11)
I’m not trying to create this folder, telegram is on my device, and i am trying to share a pic from it…
I am using the “Share to” feature of kodular, and sharing the image from telegram to my app, this is the location that is being reported as where the image came from, I am then wanting to pass the image onto the OCR function, but at the moment I can’t get it to “show/accept” the image in the kodular apk, as it comes up with permission denied, so i try to just “display” the image after i have recieved the shave, but ended up with it not showing…hence “simplifying” what i was doing, so i can see if anyone knows why its not working.
It’s really anything but funny now. Especially since I’ve really tried to track down your problem. But the necessary information (especially about the Telegram app) was missing until the end. The fact is that all my apps work on all devices and Android versions, at least as long as the Telegram app is NOT installed there.
In this respect: Uninstall Telegram and try my APKs again. I bet it will work then.
I will definitely no longer be participating in this thread.
After all that information that shows I wasn’t JUST trying from telegram I find it frustrating that your response was just
As I said earlier, this directory is likely only accessible to the Telegram app.
Even after I have mentioned all the above about different folders, different apps, and like Chandan pointed out, I did try other stuff…but your just talk to me like i’m just doing it wrong, I think i have provided more than enough information/aia/apk to show what is happening.
Your participation hasn’t actaully done anything for me, so not missed.
