Sorry if it's obvious but I have difficulties installing the warehouse client. Is there a step by step instruction or could someone shed some light on this?

More detailed questions:

  • On the warehouse page it's written "You need to enable application installation from uncertified sources: Select Phone Settings and Applications > Installations, and activate Allow installations from non-Store sources"
    • ??? but I cannot find this setting (german UI), where/what is this?
  • I can download the deb file, but then, how am i supposed to install it? Through terminal with 'dpkg -i ..'? On the site it's written "Just download and tap to install" but - as expected - nothing happens when I tap the file within the 'Files' or 'File Browser' app. Mmh?

Actually, the DEB file is the Harmattan version for the Nokia N9. For the Jolla, follow the links to the SailfishOS version.

Warehouse page info was outdated(related to harmattan version of application), and now updated with general information.

For Jolla Phone you should download Warehouse for SailfishOS, latest RPM package, and install using File manager from Jolla store.

Process described at Jolla Tides (with screenshots)

The Jolla Tides recipe worked perfectly. Many thanks for the quick answer and.. the program!

Please note that openrepos has no QA system in place yet and allows upload of binary packages.

These repos should be refered to as we did previously to maemo's extra-devel.

@chemist as well as jolla store qa cannot verify there is no malware at binary uploaded package. Also, approach is different from extras-devel, and more like ubuntu ppa.

@Basil wanted to use a comparison that fits our history. What Jolla QA does in regard of malware I do not know, but afaik they at least test if the binary bricks devices or not. As far as community goes, I find it highly interesting that a guy being active on tmo has not the same nickname on openrepos but that of a recognized maemo community member. (don't know if he ever thought about it but it is strange)

i'm quite sure you're looking at the wrong version... for sailfish you need rpm-files which, after download, can quite easily installed with file manager (via pulley menu)...

also i think the "enable non-store" option is for harmattan only, you don't need to bother with that one...

yes it was the harmattan version indeed, sorry for the noise...

I did this:

  1. Download RPM of latest version from openrepos.net
  2. Open Terminal
  3. cd to ~/Downloads
  4. install with rpm -iv
