Installer for the native OpenRepos.net client for Sailfish OS

Starting from version 0.2.9 Storeman is buit with the help of Sailfish OS OBS and Storeman Installer is used for its installation. To update Storeman prior to 2.9, one need to remove the existing RPM and use the installer or use an appropriate repository for manual update. Further updates will be done automatically. All old RPMs from this repository were archived here.


  • Every SFOS release requires a configured OBS repository. Therefore Storeman installation may not be available for some time after a new SFOS release until maintainers configure a new repository. This is especially true for EA releases
  • If you have any troubles with installing, removing or updating packages after the system upgrade try to run "devel-su pkcon refresh" in the terminal app
  • Storeman can still be unstable! Application name does not affiliated to any other software

Installation instructions:

  • Enable "System → Security → Untrusted software → Allow untrusted software" in the device settings
  • Visit this page using the device’s browser, and tap the harbour-storeman-installer-$version.jolla_.noarch.rpm link further down the page or download the RPM with your computer and transfer it to the device somehow
  • Tap the downloaded or transfered RPM in the device's "File downloaded" notification or in the file browser and confirm the installation
  • Optionally disable back the "Allow untrusted software"
  • Find the "Storeman Installer" icon in the device's app grid, tap it and wait for Storeman installation finishes - the "Storeman Installer" icon should be replaced by Storeman itself
  • The installer itself is removed automatically

Current features:

  • List recently updated applications
  • List installed applications
  • List, add/remove, enable/disable repositories
  • Show applications info similar to the official Jolla store client
  • Install/remove applications
  • All lists are scrollable, data is loaded in the background
  • Search for applications
  • Authorize to OpenRepos.net using Sailfish Secrets for secure storing of credentials
  • Comment, reply to comments, edit and delete own comments for apps
  • Use button panel to add HTML tags when typing comments (hint: select text and then click a button to wrap it with a tag)
  • Tap on the "Reply to" label on the comments list to navigate to the original comment
  • List categories and apps by categories
  • Hide any categories of applications
  • Show categories on the applications page - tap a category label to show all related applications
  • Initial support for apps bookmarks (offline only)

Baffled. My other Jolla Mk1 is giving me a 'Network Error' when starting Storeman.

Quick update on my last post.
Just tried an update of Dyncal and it worked this time around. Will now try my other Jolla Mk1 handset.

Can't update or download/install apps on Jolla 1 running Sailfish 3.XX.
I have two Jolla 1's both running SF 3.XX and they are both displaying the same error. My Sony Xperia is fine when using Storeman.

Can you please provide some additional info? Do you speak about updating apps from the "Installed apps" page or from a particular app page?

New commentaries sending failed.

Try to re-login to Openrepos.

I've noticed this too. Edit: The updating apps bug. Commenting works now after latest release.

Very Good!Thanks!

Network Error notification keeps popping up when the app is started on SailfishX
Any ideas?

the app preview pictures can't be enlarged on my intex since version 0.0.28

osetr's picture

Could they have been enlarged before? I use standard Silica components for apps' pictures and rely on its behaviour.

Thanks for Your time and hard work, best regards

Hi osetr, for some reason, I do not get offered 'Install' from top pulley menu, this is rather frutrating while trying to upload/check my own apps - all I get offered on the pulley menu is Reload and Refresh cache, these options do not change. I have uninstalled Storeman and reinstalled, but it makes no difference; any ideas?, thanks.

osetr's picture

It's strange. I've just checked some of your packages and everything seems to be ok. Have you tried to remove and re-add your repo?

Markkyboy's picture

I don't know what I did, but now it is all working again. A glitch in the matrix I guess ;)
Thanks for your time osetr :)

Markkyboy's picture

Oddly, I am offered the option to 'Install' from other repos, just not my own, ...the plot thickens!

osetr's picture

Can you try to install your package through the Terminal app?

Markkyboy's picture

Doing that right now :)
Here's the output:

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ devel-su pkcon refresh
Refreshing cache
Refreshing software list
[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ devel-su pkcon install shortcut-screenshots
Resolving                                                    [                             ] (0%)  Package not found: shortcut-screenshots
Command failed: This tool could not find any available package: No packages were found
[nemo@Sailfish ~]$

Yes, I've just tried removing my repo and adding again, it took a long time to add and I still only have Reload and Refresh cache from top pulley menu. It must be a problem with my device, as I can see that one user has successfully download and left feedback on a new app. Strange indeed. 
No amount of removal, restarting, refreshing, turnning device off/on, reset connection.....I always try everything I can before making contact with devs, unless I am lost.........this time, I am lost.

Storeman have not Chinese currently. Please add Chinese.Thanks.

osetr's picture

Storeman currently has zh_CN (Chinese, China) locale. All available locales are listed at Transifex.

Hi. storeman seems rather unusable here on Trying to install several apps like Laufhelden or Pure Maps results in a fail due to "Aborted by user". pkcon refresh did not help. Downloading the files directly from openrepos and installing them with file manager works. So this looks like some sort of "download problem". However, irritating error message. Is there some log file to look into?

osetr's picture


Here is the debug version. But since Storeman is launched through the invoker it's a bit complicated to obtain its logs. To do it note the time of launching Storeman and after closing it type in Terminal

devel-su journalctl --since "2018-11-17 22:30" > /home/nemo/harbour-storeman.log

where the "--since" value is the time you've noted. Then send me please the resulting "harbour-storeman.log" file.

Remove from the pulley doesn't work if an update is available.

Hi osetr,

Thank you for creating Storeman, works so much faster than Warehouse did. Pity I have to renew my login so frequently, but I guess there are security reasons for this.

I noticed a few times that writing a comment did not result in actually placing a comment in openrepos. I just tested (you probably saw that), and it works now ;)

Giving a rating from the app would be a nice feature. Tapping the star results in a bookmark now.

Cheers, Rob

Dissapearing comments is a known issue.
You can rate apps by tapping the "Thumb up" icon.

Hola osetr,

'An error occured' when trying to update storeman 'armv7hl/geoclue-provider-here-0.0.17-1.2.4.jolla.armv7hl.rpm not found......'
What has this got to do with maps?, I don't have any mapping system on the device, any ideas?, thanks

Hi, Look at my previous reply to PawelSpoon

Markkyboy's picture

Doh!, of course, how could I forget pkcon refresh!, problem fixed, thanks osetr! :)
