Patch: Quick settings on power menu

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (19 votes)

Finally, SFOS 3 allows you to access quick settings from top menu.

Recommended to remove pre-1.3 versions before installing the newer ones.

Adds Quick Settings to power menu without removing ambience switcher.


This patch features:

  • All your shortcuts, quick actions, and ambiences just a swipe away, everywhere from top edge
  • Settings for shortcuts and quick actions under "Power menu" settings
  • Options for additional buttons on power key menu and top menu separatedly: close, silent, device lock, reboot, home restart
  • Option for number of columns of shortcuts (3~8) – will affect both powermenu and events pulley
  • Events pulley the same as power menu in width
  • Option to remove quick settings from events pulley
  • Remove obsolete button for shortcut settings
  • A minor bug fix in wallpaper positioning (correcting horizontal offset and making it static)
  • Translation support: Chinese (China), Czech, Danish (unfinished), Dutch, Dutch (Belgium), English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Slovenian (unfinished), Swedish.

Help translate into your language!
Huge thanks to the translation team!

Be careful! Will conflict with other power menu and events patches, but not with Tablet UI (Quick Settings Sidebar).
Want to use other events patches? Install the version 0.3.
Requires patchmanager

Known issues:

  • Device Lock button won't work on 2.0.4
  • Close button has problems with Browser and potentially some other apps
  • Changing order of favorite settings in Power menu won't affect Events pulley and vice versa; unless you disable and re-enable the main settings.
  • With no favorite ambiences and a scrollable power menu, it will be opened from its last position.

0.7+ the only versions compatible with patch Voice call quick action 0.2+

Great thanks to @equiem for the super idea in this patch.

Could not apply in SFOS

I have a problem with this patch. I cannot unapply it nor uninstall this patch. Though I cannot update some of my patches. Is there any way to uninstall this patch?

alina's picture

Have you edited any files manually when this patch was applied? If you can revert the changes the problem will probably be fixed.

Anyway, try the command:

devel-su pkcon remove sailfishos-patch-quicksettings-powermenu

Nice!! Thank you for the update!! :)

A must have!

Money beer is coming along!

alina's picture

Thanks for your support. The community's emotional support is much appreciated either.

Is possible to increase size of patch icon? It is smaller than others options in Settings in my Xperia

alina's picture

This problem occurs with icons in different patches of mine. I have no idea about the reason. Can you please contact me via Telegram (@alina_jafi) or email ( to investigate more or try some other icons?

Good job. Thanks for close button. Hovever I like sliders to be between different kind of toggles to divide them.

Dharmendra63's picture

If what you mean is to get the old style where toggles are above sliders then follow the below instructions

  1. Unapply patch.
  2. Download this file
  3. Replace file /usr/share/patchmanager/patches/sailfishos-patch-quicksettings-powermenu/unified_diff.patch with downloaded file
  4. Apply patch

The downloaded file is basically the same file given in patch except that it has the modifications removed which reverse the order of toggles and sliders

flanker's picture

Exactly what I need. Many thanks for Your help. Maybe you should cooperate with Alina on his patch. Maybe it will be good for other users too if they can choose where sliders to be placed. Thanks.

alina's picture

I think it's possible to add an option. I'll try it soon.

Great! Thanks for latest update. At last the close is back. Awesome.

carmenfdezb's picture

Thanks for the update! I'm using close button, but it doesn't work in sailfish browser, it's only me?

alina's picture

No, it's a known issue.

carmenfdezb's picture

Ok, thanks for your answer

Hi alina,

running your patch on Xperia X with SFOS Kymijoki I have an issue.

I`ve set the number of shortcut columns to 5, but after every reboot the 5th shortcut disappears.

Could you fix it please? Thanks in advance.

alina's picture

I don't have an Xperia X to recreate it. :/

silta's picture

Okay, I've got it.

At first I unapplied patch and rebooted. Then gone to settings, events view and added the fifth shortcut. After that applied patch again and rebooted.

From now shortcut doesn't disappear after reboot.

Ingvix's picture

I tested this on my Xperia and my 5th shortcut stays in place after reboot.

Also, do you have a specific reason not to implement the close button hiding on lockscreen which I provided? I haven't seen any issues while using it.

Oh, the option "Wider on landscape" is gone in v0.1.6-1_2.1.1 (was in v0.1.5-1_2.1.0 and earlier versions), as denoted in the changelog above.

Any chance to bring it back?

Well, all functionality is there without it, but it just looks so ugly in landscape orientation.

alina's picture

Since the patch is usable on different devices with different display sizes, it's obsolete. Especially that portrait view is used rather on large screens, and it won't fit the whole width of those screens, it's meaningless to have a wider menu with more space between the buttons.

naytsyrhc's picture

Many thanks for the update. Works well with 2.1.1 now.

Just486's picture

What a relief to see you post here. So should we expect compatibility updates on this patch? Out of many alternatives your app suites me the best

naytsyrhc's picture

Patch can't be applied on worked before like a charm. Any chance to get a fix?

alina's picture

Thank you for your kindness, but this has had some fatal bugs in recent releases and I haven't solved them yet. Plus that my Jolla bricked in the update process, and however I fixed it soon, it still needs more time to get back to the normal state again.

Ingvix's picture

The close button on lockscreen would be solved with what I commented earlier.

Just486's picture

Is this one still maintained? One of my favorites, but needs at least compatibility updates
