Storeman Installer

Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (213 votes)

Installer for the native 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 using Sailfish Secrets for secure storing of credentials
  • Comment, reply to comments, edit and delete own comments for apps

I can try, what is the harbour-storeman --option for debugging mode?

[Edit] No crash this time.

I'm afraid it's quite harder. You need to use SDK. Or enable core dumping and send me a dump. But I don't know much about it myself. There is a how-to in the osmscout-sailfish repository on GitHub.

Kabouik's picture

It still crashes after posting for me, but the message is successfully sent, which is the most important.

osetr's picture

It's really annoying, but I can't spot the place where Storeman crashes because I can't reproduce the bug in debugging mode.

Edit: Posting has been fixed!
Thank U!

P.S. A beer is coming...

Greetings all!
Am I the only one who has his instance crashing after posting a comment?
P.S. It crashed even now, while posting this one. Let's see if editing does it too...
P.S.2 Nope - editing works just fine

Mee too (on Jolla 1), it has been happening for probably a year
Edit: Aaannd it crashed after posting this.

Bug report:
If there are several application updates available and you manually update one app using the pulley menu inside its application page, then this will install ALL available app updates instead of just the intended one.

  • Jolla Version 3.20
  • Sony Xperia XA2 Plus

I just installed Sailfish and the first thing I did was trying to figure out how to get Qwant & Duckduckgo as my search engines on my browser and ended up here.

Is this supposed to be in the Jolla store?

I can't find it.

Install storeman to have an app that makes installing from openrepos easier (will automatically install dependencies if an app requires them, so you don't have to manually dl/install each rpm) and then for ddg and qwant you probably want this:

No option to update OSM Scout Server from 1.14.2 to latest 1.15.5. Is this a bug or is it some kind of protection from Storeman as latest version should not work on older SFOS versions (I'm on

olf's picture


  1. Do read at the right place:
    NB! For SFOS <=3.0.2.x users - do not upgrade here to versions >=1.14.3. Use OBS instead:
  2. Do not upgrade beyond OSM Scout Server 1.14.5 on SailfishOS < 3.0.2 and keep your map files:

Did you try to run `pkcon get-updates`?

Pohli's picture

Just tried: [nemo@Sailfish ~]$ pkcon get-updates
Getting updates
Refreshing software list
There are no updates available at this time.

olf's picture

... which is correct, as there is nothing to update to from OpenRepos with OSM Scout Server 1.14.2 installed on SailfishOS < 3.0.2.

Please do research and read first, before asking (and thereby stealing others' time).

Hi Osetr!

i cant manage to dowload an app from within storeman... storeman says : an error occured, file './drpms/droid-hal-version... was not not found on medium

any idea?

thanks a lot!!

osetr's picture

devel-su pkcon refresh as always after an OS upgrade

sez_'s picture

any chance to be installed on xperia x? aarch64?

All SailfishOS releases for ARM comprise only ARMv7 binaries to date.
Hence SailfishOS on ARMv8 CPUs also uses solely ARMv7 application binaries.

Hey @osetr,
I am unable to log into my Openrepos account using my email because I am unable to write/paste dots/periods.

Just use your login name.

Hello, now that there is an "adult content " section, would it be possible to create a filter that could be activated / deactivated in the settings?

Great !

hi! i did install storeman. then i decided to erase it (mostly cause its a recomanded thing to do before a sailfish update...). But now that the app is erased, i can still find traces of it in the file browser (Such as ssu_openepos-oestr_release... or other files seemingly connected to the zypp file). the file browser refuses to allow me to erase these files even if the app is already erased, writing 'permission denied'.without being a developper and opening the terminal, how could i simply clean my phone from those left over files?thanks a lot.

You don't need to delete Storeman before upgrade. Just disable the openrepos repositories. To clean your phone you need to delete all the third-party repositories.
