Storeman Installer

Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (213 votes)

Installer for the native 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.


  • 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
  • Install/remove applications
  • All lists are scrollable, data is loaded in the background
  • Search for applications
  • Authorize to using Sailfish Secrets for secure storing of credentials
  • Comment, reply to comments, edit and delete own comments for apps
  • Use button panel to add HTML tags when typing comments (hint: select text and then click a button to wrap it with a tag)
  • Tap on the "Reply to" label on the comments list to navigate to the original comment
  • List categories and apps by categories
  • Hide any categories of applications
  • Show categories on the applications page - tap a category label to show all related applications
  • Initial support for apps bookmarks (offline only)
  • Initial support for backups (offline only)
  • Rate applications
  • Find and manage local RPM files

Seems to be working OK again now. One of the issues was that it was getting stuck updating some of the repos.
Well I'm buggered. It seems to be working fine again.

Storeman works fine on my Xperia 10 SFOS but one bug i have to report: Storeman always forgets it's credentials after logout. New login requires new input of cred's.

Getting error after error when the initial update check is in progress in SF3.4.0 24. Storeman seems very unstable at present, causing reboots when repos are disabled or re~enabled.

Would it be possible for Storeman to prescan the repositories (particularly the non-enabled ones) for apps compatible or not compatible with the current device.E.g., I think it would be helpful to be able to see if an application was available for aarch64 before clicking on it, enabling the repo and wait for the update, and then scrolling down the app description to find "no versions available".

Maybe this could take the form of putting an "X" or a badge or some other indication right on the apps list to show that one needn't bother (yet) checking out an app that's not available on their device.

I only recently thought of this upon getting an Xperia 10 II, and going thru the above process on several apps to get disappointed a few minutes later. (I wasn't so lucky as to score a tablet, so issue never occured to me.)

Just an idea . . . Storeman is pretty much essential for discovering applications on OpenRepos, and I appreciate your work.

The next actions are required for each of repositories to implement this feature:

  1. add the repository to the device
  2. refresh the repository and list all available arhcitectures for all available packages
  3. remove the repository
  4. repeast 1-3 periodically

This would lead to high network usage and high device load. It would be much better to have an appropriate field in the API responce of OpenRepos. You can try to leave a afeature request here

Good idea, I'll do that.

Hello, unfortunately I run into a problem on my Xperia XA2 Plus-DoubleSim with Sailfish OS, device adaptation If I try to install storemanager harbour-storeman-0.2.5-1.sfos4_.0.armv7hl.rpm as follows:

d/l newest armv7hl.rpm file

In file manager go to downloads, select and pulldown install

]# pkcon refresh && pkcon install zypper
]# zypper refresh

Say yes

]# pkcon refresh
]# zypper refresh

Apparently everything went fine, but...

]# harbour-storeman --help
error: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set in the environment.
[C] unknown:0 - Failed to create display (No such file or directory)

Storeman is GUI application, don't start it within the teminal. Especially under root :)

Would it be possible to add an option to automatically remove repositories from apps that are not installed anymore?

In the past, I have tested several apps. Now my repo-list is very huge and deleting the repositories one by one is extremely time-consuming and annoying. :-)

baboo's picture

Yes. Just tested it
Could it be something specific to my phone? If no one has it

baboo's picture

Nothing major just a very litte 'cosmetic' irregularity thought I'd report in case it hasn't been brought to your attention
Since even before your last update, whatever I un/install, it un/installs just fine, then I go back to the previous page/recently updated list. There, the little busy indicator (belonging to the just un/installed app) keeps spinning indefinitely until I exit the app or go back to the 1st page/home. Pretty sure, there's no process pending in the background.
Sorry to bother you with such a minor thing (blame my ocd).
Always and continuously, thank you for your work

osetr's picture

Thank you for response!

Can't create a backup. Have tried Settings backup etc but no backup file is created. Is the backup feature still to be implemented please?

osetr's picture

I can confirm the issue, thank you for the report. Will try to fix

Loging into Openrepos account fails via the app. Do not know when it had happened. After the upgrade to SFOS 4, I wanted to comment in another app page via the Storeman and could not login. So might be it started with SFOS 4.

Xperia X, SFOS 4, encryption never was enabled.

osetr's picture


Is this issue still actual?

Ta_das's picture

Thanks for the update. Logging via Storeman works now.

with sfos 4.0 refreshing many repository lokks like taking ages

storeman  is refreshing coderus repository for over  12 hours now

is that normal? is there a workaround?

storeman + sfos 4 looks like a pain in the neck 

osetr's picture

I don't have any troubles on sfos4. Can you try to refresh the cache with pkcon?

Brummkreisel's picture


will there be a specific build for SFOS4 or can I install the latest one?

osetr's picture


As for me, the latest one works just fine. A specific build would appear later

delocoyo's picture

osetr's picture

delocoyo's picture

Updating from to does not work for me. I have a clean install. My user is no longer nemo but defaultuser. This seems to be the cause of the error messages. Unfortunately I can't upload a screenshot right now.

Thanks for all the work!

For now I cannot imagine how a username can affect Storeman. Waiting for some more information on errors. Thank you for appreciating Storeman:)

harbour-storeman-0.2.3-1.sfos3_.4.armv7hl.rpm doesn't install on Pro1 Alternative version recommended in comments (harbour-storeman-0.2.2-1.armv7hl.rpm) is not available.

osetr's picture

What kind of error do you receive. 0.2.2 was quite buggy, so I have removed it from this repo. However it's still available on GitHub in the releases section.

oenone's picture

The bubble in the top left corner pops up and says "Problem with installing harbour-storeman" Is there a way to try the install using the terminal that might provide more information?
