Note: On SFOS 4.5 some user have problems to start or install Kuri. This is related to the deprecation and removal of QtBluetooth. For user which are affected by this issue qtconnectivity-bluetooth from OpenRepos can be installed. A proper fix is not yet available.

Note: This is pre-beta software and intended for early adopters. No loss of workouts is to be expected but the settings might be reset with an update.

  • You need to enable the chum repo to resolve the Mapbox GL Native QML dependency for map display
    • download the chum rpm for your architecture
    • install the rpm, e.g. via the file browser
    • install Kuri (if installation still does not work, perform a `devel-su pkcon refresh`)
  • All strings should now be translatable, so please start translating.
  • HRM devices should work but are untested.
  • Upload to Sports Tracker seems to be broken. I do not have an account or an iOS os Android device, therfore I cannot fix it. Pull Requests welcome.
  • It still uses the Laufhelden folder in the Home directory.
  • Not everyting from the new Record Page is working, yet
  • I don't have much time for Kuri, so don't expect to get it out of alpha soonish. I put it here just to have some motivation to work on it from time to time.

Note: v0.3.6 was removed since it caused problems with older sfos releases. v0.4.0 restored compatibility with sfos 3.0.

Kuri is a sport tracking application for Sailfish OS. Kuri means "run" in Esperanto. Funnily it also means "discipline" in Finnish.

Kuri takes inspirations from MeeRun, but it will take some time until all of MeeRuns features are implemented.

This application is a fork of Laufhelden by jdrescher. The reason for the fork is that it isn't maintained anymore.

Thanks to translators!

- fix cover page recording update


nitrotnt's picture

This test version is successfully installed on my sfos 4.5 and i've a start and save a workout with success

elBoberido's picture

Unfortunately it will take some time for a proper fix but luckily there is a qtconnectivity-bluetooth package available on OpenRepos which provides the missing libraries.

elBoberido's picture

Great. I hope I can fix the Bluetooth issue soonish

nitrotnt's picture

Scuse me i wrong the required isn't libQT4bluetooth but libQT5bluetooth ! Yes i've installed mapbox gl and if install the rpm I've the same error

nitrotnt's picture


i've a problem to install on sfos 4.5 (xperia 10III) for missing library libqt4bluetooth.so. Is possible to solve it?Thank!

elBoberido's picture

I'm not sure what requires 'libqt4bluetooth.so'. It should not be required by Kuri itself. Can you try to install the latest version from the terminal with 'rpm -i harbour-kuri-0.4.5-1.aarch64.rpm'?

Have you installeld the MapboxGL Native QML bindings from the chum repo?

nitrotnt's picture

this is a output:

[defaultuser@Xperia10III Download]$ rpm -i harbour-kuri-0.4.5-1.aarch64.rpm

elBoberido's picture

It seems there is an issue with fresh installs on SFOS 4.5. I'll check if I can provide a quick-fix the next days

elBoberido's picture

Please try https://openrepos.net/content/elboberidotesting/kuri-testing. It has no Bluetooth support but at least offers some limited functionality until a proper fix

Shocker's picture

Hello, thank you for great app, I have some questions:

  1. It is possible to add somehow in application configuration files custom online maps (like in OSM Scout application - more details in this thread)?
  2. During one workout I disconnected HR accidentally and there is no possibility to reconnect - so half of the activity I have without pulse saved. For example in Sports Tracker there is an option "reconnect HR"). Do you have any idea how to do it in Kuri?
  3. It is possible to add "average pulse" and "average speed" option like in Laufhelden to workout main screen?
  4. It is application cover broken in Kuri? I mean that in Laufhelden application cover is working properly during workouts, in Kuri not - see screenshot.

Regards, R.

elBoberido's picture


thanks, always great to have new users :)

1. I have to figure out how to to do it. If you have a link to a QML file from OSM Scout it would help a lot.

2. I know this problem and will fix it but I can't promise when it will be done

3. This will eventually also be available. I'm currently porting the application to Rust and also add tests to make it more robust

4. I'll have a look at it

Shocker's picture

Good to see that Kuri is still developed!

  1. Unfortunately I don't know the QML/QT language, so I can only send you link to QML directory from OSM Scout github. To this file I have to add additional maps providers, and then they appear in the application settings. Fast and easy.
  2. I will wait - we have time, for now bike season will end soon, so next big journeys in 2023 :)
  3. This is also good info, can you write something more - for example if after port will you implement some new features? :)
  4. If you want more info/details let me know. As regular user of your app I want to help somehow :)
elBoberido's picture

The cover page should now be updated with the latest recording data.

Regarding help. Are you able to build kuri from source? Once the port to Rust is finished it would be nice to have another tester before the release is done.

ABreen's picture

I've been using SportsTracker for so kong now I don't want to change plus it also means a change for those people I share SportsTracker with.

Is it not just a matter of setting up Kuri to be able to log into the SportTracker account to upload the data.

elBoberido's picture

I don't know. I did not find any developer documentation for SportsTracker, contrary to strava which has a public API.

I cannot really tell that much about the SportsTracker code and since it is not possible to create an accout via their website I also cannot test anything. Therefore this feature needs someone who has this itch and likes to scratch it.

ABreen's picture

I have a SportsTracker account which I'd like to use with Kuri. Is there anyway I might be able to help you fix the SportSTracker link?

elBoberido's picture

I'm not really familiar with the SportsTracker code. It seems to be mostly JavaScript. So if you have experience with JavaScript I would welcome some code contributions.

Since I don't have a SportsTracker account, I cannot really test anything and most probably will disable SportsTracker with the next release if there is nobody taking care of it.

Although I also don't use strava, at least it's easy to create an account and they have a documented API so it is more feasible to keep supporting it. Would it be an opion for you to switch to strava?

SKD's picture

Hello elBoberido,

First off all thank very much for your work! Unfortunately I never could get this app to work on my XA2 (the last ~1,5 years...). Laufhelden is still working. Whenever I want to start the app the icon appears for some time and then goes again. It NEVER starts. I did install the Chum repo as mentioned in your description. I would really appreciate getting this to work. Is there any possibility to see what actually causes the problem?

elBoberido's picture

Could you try to start the from the terminal and check the output?

From the top of my head, this is a list of things that might cause the issue

- corrupt config file -> check `~/.config/harbour-kuri/harbour-kuri.conf` and rename it

- missing dependencies, even with Chum repo enabled

- something corrupt in `~/Laufhelden` -> try to rename it

What SFOS version are you using?

SKD's picture

My current sailfish version is I just tried starting from terminal, here's the output (the 2 lines actually loop for quite some time at the "..."):

[nemo@XperiaXA2 ~]$ harbour-kuri

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Does this tell you anything? :)

elBoberido's picture

The good news is that kuri 0.5 will use Amber Web Authorization instead of O2, which should fix this. The bad news is that I don't know when it's ready.
I'll have a closer look at this later.

Do you use strava with Laufhelden? If yes, could you log out before starting kuri?
Did you try to rename `~/.config/harbour-kuri/harbour-kuri.conf`? Please don't delete it. If it fixes the problem it will help to fix the bug.

SKD's picture

Thank you for looking into it! I tried disabling strava in Laufhelden --> no effect. I tried to rename ~/Laufhelden --> no effect.

But the thing with the config actually worked and Kuri did start up :). This is the content of the config file:


thresholds="Schwellwerte Aus,true,false,0,false,0,false,0,false,0|Wettkampf 10km,false,true,183,false,133,true,5,true,4.5|Training GA 1,false,true,141,true,130,false,6.2,false,3.2"


elBoberido's picture

Was that the only content?
Unfortunately I cannot reproduce the issue but I'm already on 4.4.

Glad it works for you now

silta's picture

Hi @elBoberido,


unfortunately Kuri doesn't work under SFOS EA. Maybe because of the Sailjail limitations.

It would be nice if you could provide an update.


Thanks in advance.


elBoberido's picture

Will publish an quick fix soon. If you have similar problems with other apps, you can disable the sandboxing by editing the destop file under /usr/share/applications and add

silta's picture

Thank you for the update. Kuri is working now.

Have a nice day.

Hi @elBoberido ,

Do you know if  Garmin HRM-Pro (https://www.garmin.com/en-US/p/682155) which has bluetooth can work with Kuri?


elBoberido's picture

Sorry, I can't tell you if that device works. Maybe you can ask in https://forum.sailfish.org whether someone uses that device

Alex's picture

Hey @elBoberido,
upgrading SailfishOS to 4.3.0.xx will remove Kuri because it has a dependency to a mapboxgl-qml version that requires OpenSSL 1.0. Could you please provide an updated version of Kuri (that uses the latest version of mapboxgl-qml)? :)

elBoberido's picture

That's weird. I also updated to the 4.3 EA release but did not have the problem you described. Do you have the latest mapboxgl-qml installed? It is not directly provided by Kuri but must be installed and updated manually from rinigus repo.
