I missed some new strings as I were on holiday for 2 weeks, but I added the missing translations on saturday morning.

Funny thing all is German except the status message. I didnt find any thing in transifex. So i cant tranlated.

Here is the last version with updated translations. It's built with the beta SDK so I don't want to release it here on OpenRepos.

You have to relogin. Sometimes Storeman thinks you're still logged in allthough you are not.

Looks like it's a bug though Storeman should detect issues with authorization. I've tried to reproduce it but with no result.

Hmmm weird, because Warehouse do exactly what wrote in spec file for preupdate/preinstall etc... Same as installation from filemanager or from terminal..

osetr's picture

Is this issue actual for all your patches?

Schturman's picture

I tested only once... All my putches was installed via terminal, don't remember why and which patch I decided to uninstall via Storeman app. App said it uninstalled, but when I checked via terminal (rpm -qv) the package was still there...
Another user asked me for help with my patch it mess some stuff and not worked (it was very strange for me). When we investigated what happened he said that he installed another weather patch over previous via Storeman. But the spec file shouldn't be allow this... Like example, this user have been installed:
sailfishos-datetext-size-meecast
It have in spec:
Obsoletes: sailfishos-datetext-size, sailfishos-datetext-size-weather
Now by mistake he installed the second patch:
sailfishos-datetext-size-weather
that have in spec:
Obsoletes: sailfishos-datetext-size, sailfishos-datetext-size-meecast
Conflicts: harbour-meecast-event
That mean the previous one should be unapplied and uninstalled automatically, and in the first place it shouldn't be allowed to install at all, because of "Conflicts" option (meecast users have also harbour-meecast-event package).
For some reasons Storeman skipped all this stuff and installed the second package for this user.
P.S. I forgot to say, I don't have my repo enabled, all my packages installed via terminal. Maybe this is a reason that Storeman physically not unapplied and not uninstalled my patch even it show Uninstalled...

but when I checked via terminal (rpm -qv) the package was still there...

And what does the 'pkcon search name' or 'pkcon get-details' show?

For some reasons Storeman skipped all this stuff and installed the second package for this user.

Storeman works with packages through the PackageKit API. So spec files should be handled by PackageKit. I tried to reproduce your example with the meecast packages but I had had errors for unresolved dependencies. Did you try to reproduce it with the pkcon command?

Schturman's picture

P.S. Just now tested with meecast too, same result (about what I wrote you in PM).

Schturman's picture

Hi. I sent you PM.

Wow, commenting from the app works! This rocks!!! :D

Hear hear!

It's already so much better than the Warehouse app ever was. Even though it's an early alpha, it has already replaced Warehouse, which I have removed. In Osetr I trust! :D

Thank you for your great work and the effort you placed into it. Only thing that I think is missing curently is to show which version of the software is currently installed when you click on the app. Apart that keep up the great work :)

osetr's picture

Hi, currently installed version is available as in the official store client at the end of the app description. Just tap it to expand and you'll see it.

Mariusmssj's picture

Lovely thank you :)

ferlanero's picture

Thank you! We need to take osetr as development example. Storeman works really well and is a good example that Sailfish can have very good apps.

minitreintje's picture

Great update! Thanks a lot :)
Your enthousiasm drove me to improve the backend of my apps :D

Kabouik's picture

Wow, great update. Thanks.

Schturman's picture

For some reasons I can't send comments/reply/edit via Storeman anymore.

osetr's picture

Try to reauthorize to OpenRepos

Schturman's picture

Thanks, working now :)But my installed apps detected as Not installed...

olf's picture

I had the same impression, but when I *do* "Wait while repository data is fetched", until "Repository data was fetched" appears, everything works fine (for me with Storeman 0.0.13, e.g. "This device" --> "Repositories" and --> "Installed applications" are not "grayed out").

osetr's picture

Thank you all for your replies. Current implementation of detecting of new versions is not very good and should be rewritten.

Skillmon's picture

Sometimes it doesn't get the latest version of apps. For example MangaSailor. Latest is 1.0.1, 0.4.4 is installed and considered up to date.

MoritzJT's picture

Well as soon as infraview updated to latest, storeman showed me the prior version, which was still more uptodate

Kabouik's picture

I do see an update for Infraview just now, using latest version of Storeman.
