I would do one release in some day's with the updated languages, i dont know if i would or can fix it then as i'm think to move to Xperia 10 and wait till Jolla has the image for that device, so it would be possible Fileman will go in some development pauze for some time...

very very good app!

Rudi_Timmermans's picture


Thanks! ;)

inta's picture

Yeah sorry, install is broken, update is working anyways.

inta's picture

Really broken? I did the update on 3.1 without any problem. Maybe "devel-su pkcon refresh" in the terminal helps.

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

No it's not sfos that is broke, Storeman app need to be fixed.

treeman's picture

Do you have a clue why i can't install Fileman on Sony XA2 Plus? Storeman says "no version available" (i tried update/cache update/reboot...)

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

Storeman is broke on the lasted sfos version, you need to wait till Petr has fix that in Storeman.

treeman's picture

Oh, didn't recognized that. Thanks a lot.

inta's picture

You are aware that most people probably don't know Chinese here?

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

Cool thanks!

jakecn's picture

“1 entry in clipboard ”is still English that's not translated .

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

Next update i will fix it.

jakecn's picture

Why don't you put this app on the official store so more people will use it. It's a very good app!

Historyscholar's picture


Rudi_Timmermans's picture


It use depencies that are not allow into the store. So not possible to put there.

jakecn's picture

Very good app !Thanks for the new update!

jakecn's picture

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

inta's picture

Ok, I'll have a look when I'm back from my holidays. Github stuff is not really doable without a computer.

inta's picture

Hey Rudi, where can I contribute to the translations? The project seems to be removed from transifex.
