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)
  • Initial support for backups (offline only)
  • Rate applications
  • Find and manage local RPM files

Full changelog

Now there is :)

Mick's picture

Yeah. Just saw it. LOL I think we need a new store for that called "Fapman".

Currently there are no categories on OpenRepos like adult or something similar to add filters. Try to write to the administration first.

glanternier's picture

Hello, the Adult category has been created on Openrepos

osetr's picture

Yes I know. No time to add it to Storeman

glanternier's picture

Ok thanks for the feedback. The administration is managing the implementation of new functionalities like categories or filters?

osetr's picture

Categories are managed by OpenRepos. Storeman is a client application for OpenRepos and it is developed separately of OpenRepos (by different developers). I can add a filter to Storeman to hide applications of certain categories or by certain tags. I think that filtering by categories is more prefferable due several reasons. So there are two ways to add filtering: 1) convince the administration to add the "Adult" category to OpenRepos; 2) convince me to add filtering by tags :)

glanternier's picture

Openrepos has confirmed that they implemented an "Adult content" category

osetr's picture

Yes, I was informed too. I'll implement filtering.

glanternier's picture

I just sent a request for an "Adult content" category in OpenRepos. I am thinking that filtering will be easier to implement if based on a category rather than on tags.

No chance to update it even if refresh on terminal :-(

Dude259's picture

It worked, thanks!
But do you perhaps know why this was necessary in the first place?

osetr's picture

Letter E - experience. I've even written about it in the description section.

Installing apps is failing on:

File './noarch/factory-session-0.1.2-10.4.1.jolla.noarch.rpm' not found on medium 'https://store-repository.jolla.com/releases/'

Any idea what the problem might be?

I'm on Sailfish version

Storeman version: 0.1.2-1

osetr's picture

Have you tried devel-su pkcon refresh?

Mick's picture

All sorted now thanks. I did actually forget about looking in the web catalogue. :)

Mick's picture

Since updating to Oulanka I performed a "pkcon refresh" to bring Storeman up to date, but have now lost one of my enabled repositories. I used Ancelad's Analogue Lock Screen Clock but was told it was now incompatible with Oulanka, but his repository and apps have now completely disappeared from Storeman. Has he pulled everything or is there an issue with Openrepos?

osetr's picture


Try to search in the web-catalogue https://coderus.openrepos.net/pm2/projects/

Malakay's picture

Hi, if you want, I can translate storeman into czech language if you are interested ☺

osetr's picture

Hi, I'm interested in better user experience for Storeman :) You can request Czech at Transifex or create a PR at GitHub.

osetr's picture

Ok, I will check the code. May be there is some regression.

accumulator's picture

I see the same thing. I tell storeman to update only one app and it then just updates all.

didilalalagon9's picture

How come , even if I unchecked the ''available update notification'' and the ''automatic'' update check , apps still do update themself without my action? There is at least one app that I wish to kee to a lower rev deliberately for specific reason but it still end up updated after a few day.

osetr's picture

Storeman doesn't install or update apps automatically. Try to uninstall Storeman and install the version of the app you don't want to update and see what will happen. May be there is something with dependencies resolution that forces the app to be upgraded.

mase's picture

Can the app start and run in background to do automatic updates?

osetr's picture

For now it can't.

Liking the new UI.

247's picture

What about moving the search to a left swipe?dunno why but it's seems more natural to me

Kabouik's picture

The new UI is very nice! However, wouldn't it be more convenient to align categories to the bottom and invert the order? This way, the categories most often used would be easily reachable one-handed with the thumb.

It might need some adjustments to use the space optimally and not make it too akward, not sure. Also, the logic would differ from that of the UI of the Jolla Store, which is not good. But in the Jolla Store, the screen estate is not used in the sane way because of the featured banner at the top, pushing the recent updatea downwards, easy to reach with the thumb.
