Works for me on Björnträsket if I install it with --nodeps. Perhaps lipstick didn't change that much.

Poor coderus :D

Hope you survived this one!

Can you give us a little explanation on why the patch stops working after a system update? Does it happen because Jolla or you implemented a safety measure or does it fail to apply due to actual changes in the files affected?

Looking forward to an update :-) Flattr will be set up soon for you too!

because i activated remote destruction command

Andrey, can you explain it please?
What exactly a command and where in spec file you added this?

MoritzJT's picture

That's definitely cool :P

I saw it got uninstalled. Smooth experience. But I have one issue with it. Now how do I see that it is upgradable without checking manually? Prior I could just refresh the repos and run the process.

I see the advantages with your current way though.

Then do not access it from events view.

The new patch for sailfish seems doesn't works. After installation from warehouse when I apply the patch from patchmanager it says: "install patch failed" and when I uninstall the patch from warehouse it says "uninstall failed" but the package seems correctly uninstall. Thanks for all your work with harmattan and sailfish!!!

Any Idea to clean previously installation file correctly? I have unapplied all patch from patchmanager and reboot before system update.

Are you still supporting the old eventsview patch?

How to get it work in update 11 or it work for this version at all?

coderus's picture

yes, you need to install patchmanager, then istall this patch, then in patchmanager apply this patch, and then use pulldown menu and select "Restart preloaded services" and accept restart.

Is it a possible to get an icon under settings -> system for eventsview control?

It would look more nice.

Thanks in advance.
best regards az2111

lol, you need to install and use patchmanager for jolla settings to have an icon

az2111's picture

Ok, if i use patchmanager on homescreen, there is noch icon for eventview contols under settings?

coderus's picture

yes, just because settings applets using default patchmanager icon which is provided only with patchmanager for jolla settings package

Oh no, just installed blindly the 2nd preview patch for sailfish( without unapplying the PM patches. Now PM thinks the eventsview patch was still installed and im unable to unapply it :~{
Any idea how to switch the applied/unapplied token manually?

coderus's picture

but patch is really unapplied, means you don't see controls on eventsview? then you can try to remove patch folder from /var/lib/patchmanager/ausmt/patches

mgbler's picture

thanks for the advice, i did that but the patch is still marked as installed :-(
there has to be a configuration folder/file for the patchmanager... i'll try to find that an report back if i had success

coderus's picture

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

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

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