Alex's picture

Btw the embedded video player is again broken since the update to :/

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

Thanks for the report, i know and i dont have touch this code so i need to found out what is wrong...

nazzareno's picture

Please, make possible to view files in a grid ;-)

jakecn's picture

I uninstalled the app, and reinstall it, it stays the same.

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

I dont know not what the problem is as i said i have running it myself and no one report it except you... sorry

jakecn's picture

Okay, I rebooted my phone, it's working!

jakecn's picture

Can't start up the app, once click the app icon, can't into the app interface, the app is always in the phone background interface with a circle turning.and a few minutes later it disapper in the phone background interface.

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

That's wierd here it works perfect, try remove it complete and reinstall, reboot your device.... What device you have ?

jakecn's picture

I can't open the app with the 1.1-6 version.

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

What you mean you can not open it ?

Nice work, keep up the good work Rudi.
Have some bugs to report.
1- the share function doesn't work, sending files just stops after pairing with the other device, tried with documents and apk files
2- Creating folders in the process of copying files doesn't work, touching the create new dir has no effect
3- The options for copy cut delete rename and share appearing on the topmost of the screen upon selection is really stressful and setback for FileTug, if it could just appear on the foot of the current screen much like FileCase it would be awesome.
Would have commented on the video playing but already implemented kudos man!

Rudi_Timmermans's picture


Share works on my device that i have been tested, but i check again ...

Ok i found the bug will fix it, and see if i can change menu also.

EDIT: I just fix the bug with add new dir and file the other thing i need to have more time for.


DameCENO's picture

Thanks Rudi, your efforts are really appreciated, looking forward to the next update of the app to see the changes. Thanks again

Ignore this, restarted Storeman and problem solved

Fileman should work on Jolla Phone, as far i think....

Markkyboy's picture

FYI - Jolla1 user here, yes Fileman works nicely on Jolla1 (Jolla phone aka JP1301)

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

Hi Mark,


nazzareno's picture

Does it has a native video player inside?

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

I'm working on that to bring it back.

jakecn's picture

verygood update !

DameCENO's picture

Hi Rudi, and great work the app, a real upgrade from Filetug, kudos for the share function, really handy. The app still lacks the integrated video player found in Filetug, that would just make it awesome. Also, the picture preview fails to load my camera pictures, those I took with my Jolla phone, that should be a bug a guess.

Hi Rudi. I want translate to Portuguese Brazilian. Can You open option to translater?

levone1's picture

Request - the 'global search' from Places page is great, and works smooth and fast, but in Filecase, the search function is available from any directory, to search recursively down the tree. It comes in handy sometimes... Thanks
Also, it's probably just me, but I think the transparent, 'glass' look is bad for file managers, it kind of confuses the information or something. .. I modded mine to be solid bg, and feels more comfortable. Maybe think about it.. Screenshot -!gwtHWKgR!1a-t25-7ha_LWu-gupsvHzvl3BdfwWTWwSUguRUidiE

Rudi_Timmermans's picture


I know the search function is not complete yet.....

About the glass look nice feel free to make a PR into the source code ;)


Markkyboy's picture

Hi Rudi,
a problem I noticed a while a go, then promptly forgot about it, it is not possible to install RPM packages with Fileman, I get "Installation failed" and it comes quickly. I have tried lost of RPM's and all end the same way. I had this problem with Filetug also. It would be nice if it worked, I could then actually remove File Browser from my launcher and just use Fileman.

Rudi_Timmermans's picture

Hi Mark,

It should be fixed now ;)
