A small glitch which occurred just now. Updating a comment has dropped the line breaks I made. Latest Storeman + 2.1.4.14

Vieno's picture

Thanks a lot for this feature rich Openrepos client, which has replaces Warehouse completely on my phone.
I hv to comments:1. A great annoyance is the fact that it not possible to jump directly from the application listed in Installed application to the description of it. It starts a search, which finds sometimes the related app, quite often a dozen apps which includes the name and sometimes nothing at all.2. Why the background task of refreshing the repos is shown in the pulley menu instead of using the notification in the notification area and as flying banner. In the way as F-Droid does?

Storeman crashes every time i choose 'install' after adding a repository. After a restart of storeman the app can be installed. Occurs on Fairphone with 2.1.3.7, does not occur on Xperia with 2.1.3.7

Vieno's picture

Does occur on Jolla as well. 2.1.4.14

It would be nice to have a 'favourites' or 'bookmarks' point in the pulley menu that immediately filters the favourites.

Hi, the store on my Xperia X device does not allow me to add repositories, so I can not install anything. Is adding the repository from the application page or am I doing something wrong?
ABreen's picture

I am not able install WhoGo nor Poor Maps. Initially they would show as installing but never install. I updated Storeman now they show installing for a brief time then show uninstalled. Any idea what's going on. I'm using Sailfish X on a Xperia X. Thanks

Would you like to add 'Remove all repo' and 'Disable all repo' ?

osetr's picture

"Disable all repo" is already here. "Remove all repo" is a good idea. I'll add it.

Such a great Openrepos client :)

Thanks for latest update with support for rating apps. Just great.

Hey @osetr,

with the latest release the App pages are not updated even after refreshing the main page via the pulley menu. And actually I liked it that the app page was updated after going back to main page and reloading the app again.

osetr's picture

For now Storeman caches the 3 last openned app pages. The resfresh button on the first page refreshes only the list of recently updated apps. I thought about adding a refresh button on the app page. May be I'll do it in a next release.

Alex's picture

Yes adding a pulley menu with a refresh option to the app page would be even better. :)

BTW are you planing to publish Storeman also on the Jolla Harbour store to the 'store' category? Or is Storeman not compatible with Harbour?

osetr's picture

It's totally incompatible :( When Storeman will become stable enough I want to ask Jolla if they agree to publish an installer for Storeman. I know that Basil has already tried with the installer for Warehouse but unsuccessfully. So I don't want to start developing an app that wouldn't be published.

Osetr you're one of the best devs here at OpenRepos, i really love how much effort you put on it, well done and polished apps.

Hey,

thanks for storeman.

Some strange thing happening for me regarding dependencies. e.g. harbour-poor-maps-gl requires mimic. I needed to deinstall few apps because of lack of rlsystem space for update.

After successful update I installed harbour-poor-maps-gl via storeman, the dependency seems to be pulled, see:

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ rpm -qs mimic normal        /usr/bin/mimic [nemo@Sailfish ~]$ pkcon remove mimic Resolving Testing changes Finished                                              [                          ] (0%) The following packages have to be removed: harbour-poor-maps-gl-0.34-1.noarch     Maps and navigation mimic-1.2.0.2-10.8.1.jolla.armv7hl     Mycroft's TTS engine, based on CMU's Flite (Festiva l Lite) Proceed with changes? [N/y]  The transaction did not proceed.  Fatal error: user declined simulation

But storeman does not show/reflect correctly.

On first page of mimic it says 'not installed' but when you scroll down it says 'installed version: xxx'.

So quite a bit confusing.

 

As confusing as to write such stuff in a comment section of openrepos. Would you consider ooening a thread about storeman on maemo.org? :)

 

 

--edit

NOW all is fine! :confused:

I have refreshed cache in storeman and also did 'pkcon refresh' but on the mimic page it showed as 'not installed' and a version number.

Now (I did not touch anything ;)) it shows as installed?

osetr's picture

Sorry can you show me what is harbour-poor-maps-gl. I can't find it on OpenRepos and Google leads me to https://openrepos.net/content/rinigus/poor-maps-gl which seems not to exist.

peterleinchen's picture

No need to be sorry.

openmaps-gl was revoked by rinigus as otsaloma published whogo-maps

https://openrepos.net/content/otsaloma/whogo-maps

 

I am sorry for late reply but not following this comment page here on openrepos...

Alex's picture

It has been deleted (TMO link) and I think this caused the issues.

Enabling a new repository causes Storeman to crash back to its cover and won't recover until the cover is tapped on, which returns me back to the mainpage of Storeman, then on the second try, the repo in question gets enabled and everything is okay again.

osetr's picture

These crashes are very sporadic and I haven't managed yet with determination of their reasons.

Markkyboy's picture

EDIT: I updated to the latest release of 0.0.21-2 and now when adding a repo, there is no crashing back to cover!

Agreed, but for me, it only happens when adding a new repo, other than that, the app is fine and is evolving nicely, much appreciated, thanks :)
I'm now wondering if all the other app crashes people are reporting is more to do with the actual OS update?,  Thinking about it now, there are a number of apps reported as crashing on TJC, some with similar outcomes, namely crashing back to cover.

Sorry if tgis is a stupid question - I wanted to log in to openrepos in storeman settings, but no symbols allowed in username. When I registered in openrepos, only an email address was asked for. I don't see any way to change username to something without symbols...

osetr's picture

Sorry but as martonmiklos has mentioned only a username can be used to login.

spangles's picture

Excellent!

Vieno's picture

@osetr After updating to the latest version (0.0.20) I noticed that every commentator has this gear symbol next to his name. Previously this was reserved for the owner of the app. Is it only me or is everyone facing this behaviour? Or is it the favoured one?

osetr's picture

This issue was already fixed in dev branch https://github.com/mentaljam/harbour-storeman/issues/42

Vieno's picture

Ok, sorry didn't check that. Thanks for fixing.

I cannot launch Storeman anymore, not sure if this related to a Storeman update or another change on my system. Here is what I get from terminal:

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ harbour-storeman
[D] unknown:0 - Using Wayland-EGL
harbour-storeman: symbol lookup error: harbour-storeman: undefined symbol: _ZN1
4NetworkManager8instanceEv

I'm running Sailfish 2.1.1.24 at the moment.
