Storeman Installer

Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (212 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
  • 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

Have I missed out on something ?


I'm still running the latest SFOS3 (hoping to get a SFOS4 device soon)

Storeman has stopped workibg completely for me (constantly returns "Network Error")

I've tried to install Storeman Installer but not had any luck with that at all.

Any suggestions ? Thanks.

Not sure about the reason, but you may try to install an appropriate RPM directly from OBS repositories

Storeman is wonderful and mostly runs very fine. But every 4-5 days it forgets the password, despite it is set to 'remember password'. (SFOS @ Xperia 10)
Can I do something to repair this?

osetr's picture

Thanks for the nice feedback:) I'm afraid the secrets storing logic is broken and I need to fix it.

Updated to and Storeman stopped working, could not download app.
Uninstalled Storeman and tried to install it again but with no luck.

osetr's picture

Did you try devel-su pkcon refresh?

elkiaer's picture

Yes ☺
An to be sure I just uninstalled the installer ,run the pkcon refresh and then tried to install the Storeman with no luck.

I've updated the "attention" section of this page where you can find an answer to your issue :)

elkiaer's picture

Through your info I have downloaded "harbour-storeman-0.2.8-2.sdk4_.1.0.24.armv7hl.rpm" and have now a working Storeman ☺

Precisely the same here. It doesn't install anything and dies for no apparent reason.

Where's the last version of Storeman built with th old framework that will still work, because this one won't

I'd send a log if I knew how to generate one

Here the installer simply dies.

XA2 with SFOS 4.2 latest

No installation of storeman possible

I cannot say if it is something wrong with the installer or the phone, anyway thanks it's working now.

elkiaer's picture

Not working on SFOS

osetr's picture

Should be fixed now

elkiaer's picture

The app was still crashing. Then did a pkcon refresh but the app was still crashing. Then did a restart of the homescreen (Jolla app) and that solved the issue ☺

osetr's picture

Oh, I thoungt you was talking about the installer as I have no issues with Storeman on my device with SFOS 4.2.

storeman running lovely, but sometimes I am not offered the 'install' option from pulley menu. I already tried 'devel-su pkcon refresh' to no effect. I removed all repos and added again, I signed out, signed in, uninstalled, reinstalled storeman, am out of ideas! :D
Could it be a problem with an individuals repo?

osetr's picture


What device do you use? Can it be a problem of missing aarch64 rpms?

JThurloe's picture

Hi there, can't install on the xperia 10 II, 
Fatal Error: Nothing provides

Apologies if this has already been solved, I did see someone with a similar issue here:

But I didn't quite understand the fix, new to this!

There is no "official" fix. Currently aarch64 package is broken. I will publish a fixed RPM this week.

Since the update to SFOS from SFOS 3.4 storeman no longer works. i can start the application but storeman has no access to /home/.zypp-cache/... an no network access :

set -x
nemo@Sailfish:~> harbour-storeman
+ harbour-storeman
[D] unknown:0 - Using Wayland-EGL
[W] unknown:0 - Theme dir "/usr/share/themes/jolla/meegotouch/z1.25/" does not exist
[C] unknown:0 - Could not read "/home/.zypp-cache/solv/@System/solv"
[W] unknown:0 - Network is unavailable!

I Think this is a firejail problem. How can i fix this ? Do i need a storeman.profile for firejail ? Can i disable firejail temporally, How can i whitelist everything in firejail for an application ?

Did you try devel-su pkcon refresh?

P.S. Don't launch Storeman from terminal. Use systemctl -f and launch Storeman with desktop entry to get logs.

The .aarchz64 app does not work on Xperia XZ2. Is it caused by aarch64 issues, or is it community port related issue? As far as I understand the encryption services are not present in the port.

Very nice program, thank you very much! but unfortunately Storeman forgets credentials if phone is rebooted.

osetr's picture


Do you mean the system dialogue about access to Storeman secrets?

direc85's picture

There is something wonky about the login and/or saving/retreiving the credentials... I'll create an issue about this with details how to reproduce this.

Edit: Issue created!
