Hi Schturman, .cpp is to do with Sailfish SDK which is why you are not finding it on the phone. I don't profess to know anything about Sailfish SDK, but I'd say it's yet to be compiled/packed an offered on a repo somewhere, just a guess! See this link for a little bit of information on Sailfish SDK and .cpp files(although it doesn't tell you what .cpp stands for!). Regards, []

.cpp-files are the file-ending for source-code written in C++. It is a text-file and can't do anything until it has been compiled. Usually there will be many of these files (and others) that need to be compiled together. Also, the compilation process needs to be configured for your specific device. So the typical install procedure for a source code application (usually a .tgz-archive):

  1. tar -xzf (archive name)
  2. cd (unpacked directory)
  3. ./configure
  4. make
  5. devel-su
  6. make install

Thanks to both of you. I was thinking that I can just replace orig. files on the phone :/

The Jolla gives you great power, but with great power follows great responsibility - to learn! :-) You have a Linux machine, so download putty, ssh into your Jolla (so you can use a compter keyboard instead of fingerterm), and experiment!
