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

  • 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

Since updating to Oulanka I performed a "pkcon refresh" to bring Storeman up to date, but have now lost one of my enabled repositories. I used Ancelad's Analogue Lock Screen Clock but was told it was now incompatible with Oulanka, but his repository and apps have now completely disappeared from Storeman. Has he pulled everything or is there an issue with Openrepos?

Try to search in the web-catalogue

Hi, if you want, I can translate storeman into czech language if you are interested ☺

Hi, I'm interested in better user experience for Storeman :) You can request Czech at Transifex or create a PR at GitHub.

osetr's picture

Ok, I will check the code. May be there is some regression.

I see the same thing. I tell storeman to update only one app and it then just updates all.

didilalalagon9's picture

How come , even if I unchecked the ''available update notification'' and the ''automatic'' update check , apps still do update themself without my action? There is at least one app that I wish to kee to a lower rev deliberately for specific reason but it still end up updated after a few day.

osetr's picture

Storeman doesn't install or update apps automatically. Try to uninstall Storeman and install the version of the app you don't want to update and see what will happen. May be there is something with dependencies resolution that forces the app to be upgraded.

Can the app start and run in background to do automatic updates?

osetr's picture

For now it can't.

Liking the new UI.

What about moving the search to a left swipe?dunno why but it's seems more natural to me

Kabouik's picture

The new UI is very nice! However, wouldn't it be more convenient to align categories to the bottom and invert the order? This way, the categories most often used would be easily reachable one-handed with the thumb.

It might need some adjustments to use the space optimally and not make it too akward, not sure. Also, the logic would differ from that of the UI of the Jolla Store, which is not good. But in the Jolla Store, the screen estate is not used in the sane way because of the featured banner at the top, pushing the recent updatea downwards, easy to reach with the thumb.

You can now reorder the items of the main page as you wish :)

Greeaat!! Good job! Congratulations and thank you so much!

Ok. Thanks

osetr - could you take a look at most recent comments here - There's an issue with a package being automatically overwritten by another on Storeman refresh. Coderus says it's nothing to do with Patchmanager, and Schturman says he doesn't understand why it's happening... Maybe an issue with Storeman?

osetr's picture

It's really strange. Storeman in this case is nothing more than an interface for PackageKit. As a strat point I can recommend you to run devel-su pkcon update in the terminal app and see what will happen.

Small but anoying bug: the app crash when commenting. It successfully send the commeny tho. But crash right after. Anyway: Good app. Without it sailfish OS wouldn't be the same.

Feature request
The linked page of a changelog is parsed and partly displayed within storeman's changelog page. Maybe just for one or two common pages (github) in the beginning.

osetr's picture

Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand your request :( Do you want Storeman to parse an package description to find links to a changelog file on GitHub to show its content?

southerndust's picture

Can u add local-base bookmark save feature? So that we can export then import ourselves bookmark though openrepo doesn't support cloud-base bookmark save now.
Other feature could work with this as well.

osetr's picture

It is already implemented in the backup feature. May be I should add an option to select what to backup to allow to backup only bookmatks.

Alex's picture

Would it be possible to fetch the bookmarks/favorites on a fresh login? It would make sense since the bookmarks are bound to the account. Currently if you login on another new device there are two minor issues:
1. Opening the bookmarks in settings will show the busy spinner permanently
2. The bookmarks are not fetched from your openrepos account

osetr's picture

Sorry but bookmarks are local-only as OpenRepos doesn't have such an ability. To transfer your bookamrks to another device currently you can copy the ~/.local/share/harbour-storeman directory manually.

southerndust's picture

Sorry, thanks for notify me.
Another question it could lose bookmarks sometime.
I don't replay it yet, but there actually be.

After sending the comment storeman crashed..
