The patch modifies Lockscreen.qml and adds the following files: ShowCalEvents.qml, BorderRectangle.qml, LockEventItem.qml and LockTimeLabel.qml. Coderus posted this suggestion on TMO for someone who had a similar issuue:
use this command to remove
patch -R -p 1 -d / -i /var/lib/patchmanager/ausmt/patches//unified_diff.patch

and skip already unapplied entries. Then you can reapply this patch as usual.

patch -R -p 1 -d / -i /var/lib/patchmanager/ausmt/patches/lockscreen-upcoming/unified_diff.patch

instead of

patch -R -p 1 -d / -i /var/lib/patchmanager/ausmt/patches//unified_diff.patch

I had the same problem. I ran the command above, and now I see only a blank lock-screen with the wallpaper (of course rebooted). Can not go to launcher - nothing! Any idea?

where from the file "/usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/lockscreen/BorderRectangle.qml" comes? This should be changed by the patch.

With me this file does not exist.

Thanks Ronny.

It is a new file that is created when the patch is applied.

When I select "Apply patch" patchmanager shows the following error "Failed to install patch". How can I more exactly localize this?



anig's picture

The only file it is modifying is usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/lockscreen/Lockscreen.qml
Have you manually changed anything in it?

General advice from TMO when you have patch issues:

unapply all applied patches which can be unapplied
go to terminal and write following:

pkcon remove ausmt
cd /var/lib
rm -rf patchmanager
pkcon install lipstick-jolla-home-qt5

Then you need to install patchmanager and all patches again from warehouse. It should work.

I have uninstalled everything again, according to your instructions. Then I have also uninstalled all patches which existing then and restart the Jolla.

Then I have installed only the "patchmanager" and your patch. By the call I got the error message again "Failed to install patch".

If I want to deinstall your patch, unfortunately, always with ' rpm-e - noscripts lockscreen-upcoming ', because I get otherwise the following mistake:

zypper remove lockscreen-upcoming
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

The following package is going to be REMOVED:

1 package to remove.
After the operation, 38.2 KiB will be freed.

now, I could solve the problem. In the directory '/usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/lockscreen/' were still files of the old version of the patch.

can you precise which one ? I have the exact same problem, cheers

Good to hear you got it working. I will try to add additional checks to the install/uninstall scripts to make it smoother in the future.

Hi, i cant remove this patch. I get this message from the warehouse app:

Transaction /4487_ecdecbb

Status: cannot-remove-system-package

Extra details:

Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.daGg3G: line1://: is a directory

error: 0x44bdd240reun(lockscreen-upcoming-0.2-1.armv7hl) scriptlet failed, exit status 2

error: lockscreen-upcoming-0.2-1.armv7hl: erase failed


The patch do not work to 100%. I have the settings, but no events at my lockscreen.

Thats why i try to remove it. Mfg sanktus

You need to install patchmanager from here and then apply the patch through there.

If you are still having issues removing try the following:
1) open terminal application
2) enter this command in the window
pkcon remove lockscreen-upcoming

rpm -q --scripts <Package> shows the Script
rpm -e --noscripts <Package> only remove the package

Sorry Anig. Your patch works fine. Problem seems to be in Sailfish OS Calendar patch. Didnt check carefully enough.

hpehto's picture

Very useful patch thanks. But I cannot create a event that lasts more than one day.
