Installer for the native OpenRepos.net 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.

ATTENTION!

  • 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

Yes, it's a known issue for me. It's so because of using invoker for launching Storeman. I will fix it in next releases. Thank you!

Thank you :)

Could you please provide an option to disable auto updates or at least have the option to update during a certain day of the week or something. It's rather annoying to open the app trying to install/uninstall something and while the app starts auto update check. Thanks

osetr's picture

Done :)

Hmm, first install of apps after installation of storeman was working. After upgrading storeman it's not working any more because looks like all connections are dropping (Errormessages). After starting storeman the apps screens and the details of apps are ever empty.
I think it's a cache problem or however. How can I clean all files for storeman after removing it?

osetr's picture

You have to remove the next directories:

  • ~/.config/harbour-storeman
  • ~/.cache/harbour-storeman
  • ~/.local/share/harbour-storeman

... or just use another my app Mashka (:

But I don't think your issue is about cache files. A simple reinstallation can help.

Neighter reinstall nor removing of directories was more than helpful. Now installed ...25 but problem still exists. Now it searches endless and never shows packages after startup or is search function is used.
It can find updated packages so if I click the notice on the message screen it opens in storeman the insalled app screen with the ones who can be updated. But clicking on one and "search on openrepos.net" then will again open endless searching circle so I cannot check the content/details of the package. I will check the log and open a case on github. Better than discuss it here. It's a good idea to put your cleanup hint to the description ;-)

Hi @osetr and thanks a million for this amazing version of openrepos.
This new version of this app 0.23-1 won't let me connect my openrepos.net account to it.
An error occured, do check your credentials and try again. To be sure I opened a browser window and logged in my openrepos.net account before posting this bug

osetr's picture

Have you tried to log in with your username or your email?

DameCENO's picture

Yes both, it works with my username only but fails with my email. Thanks anyway

osetr's picture

For now API allows to log in only with username. I thought that email is also acceptable but it isn't, so Storeman confuses users. To be honest, I forgot to fix this part...

Where are the older version of Storeman? I need to install it on Sailfish 2.0.4.13

Sailbook's picture

Hi,

I have a older version here if you like send me a message here so i can share it with you ;)

osetr's picture

I'm afraid there are no older versions available. I think Storeman is still unstable and every version has its bugs. But as I have already received some requests of older versions I plan to create a compability branch of Storeman for older Sailfish OS versions. Stay in touch!

Hi,

I am not getting download option and how to add repos (options not highlighted). I am using Redmi 1S with 2.1.4.14

osetr's picture

I've found and fixed a bug with an infinite cache refreshing for a fresh install of Storeman. I think it's right about your issue.

DarkTuring's picture

Crashes often when trying to upgrade, refresh takes too long.

Vieno's picture

A small glitch which occurred just now. Updating a comment has dropped the line breaks I made. Latest Storeman + 2.1.4.14

osetr's picture

Please tell what exactly happened.

Vieno's picture

It happened at the long comment on 18th of April with 'feature rich' in the first line. The numbering 1 and 2 has started with a new line will writing it. After sending it was shown with this new lines for the numbering. (just like 2 paragraphs)) After editing the comment ( some wording at the end) and sending again the new lines went missing. Hope this explanation helps to identify the problem.

osetr's picture

Ok, it's a feature of OpenRepos, not Storeman. Storeman just sends a comment to OpenRepos where it is parsed. Here you can read more about it: If paragraphs are not recognized simply add a couple blank lines.

Vieno's picture

Thanks a lot for this feature rich Openrepos client, which has replaces Warehouse completely on my phone.
I hv to comments:1. A great annoyance is the fact that it not possible to jump directly from the application listed in Installed application to the description of it. It starts a search, which finds sometimes the related app, quite often a dozen apps which includes the name and sometimes nothing at all.2. Why the background task of refreshing the repos is shown in the pulley menu instead of using the notification in the notification area and as flying banner. In the way as F-Droid does?
