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

Please tell what exactly happened.

It happened at the long comment on 18th of April with 'feature rich' in the first line. The numbering 1 and 2 has started with a new line will writing it. After sending it was shown with this new lines for the numbering. (just like 2 paragraphs)) After editing the comment ( some wording at the end) and sending again the new lines went missing. Hope this explanation helps to identify the problem.

Ok, it's a feature of OpenRepos, not Storeman. Storeman just sends a comment to OpenRepos where it is parsed. Here you can read more about it: If paragraphs are not recognized simply add a couple blank lines.

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?

Hi,
Concerning #1 read here.
Concerning #2: there are several PackageKit operations that Storeman runs in background. Their status is shown in the pulley menu to show the user that Storeman is busy. Notifications are used on finish (for example when an app was installed/removed/updated or when updates are available and so on).

Is #1 the reason why the search results never really work? I tried searching for LinksBag by searching for "links" but linksbag is nowhere to be found.

osetr's picture

No, the search is done by OpenRepos. If I remember it right, OpenRepos uses a title and description for the search, and if there is no a "links" word in the LinksBag description, no appropriate results will be shown.

Thank for your reply.
Ok, point #1 is understood. Sorry didn't see the thread at Github.
#2 is good as it is. Maybe I'm a bit too nerdish. No need to change for me; I was just wondering about this method to bring information to the user, which I hv'nt see before(not the pulsing, but then text above it).

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

osetr's picture

It's a known issue but I still have not been able to find out the reason.

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.

osetr's picture

Current implementation of bookmarks doesn't filter apps but show a list of bookmarked apps. Implementing bookmarks as a filter sounds quite laborious for me.

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?
osetr's picture

Hi,
Is the issue is still actual?

tkoham's picture

seconded, this problem affects my new Xperia X

Jarod976's picture

yes, even updating to version 0.22, I can not add repositories in any way.

osetr's picture

Have you used Storeman before on your Xperia? I mean, was this error from the first Storeman installation or appeared during its usage?

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?
