Help with Chum in xz2c


I will like to know better how to install chum in Xperia xz2c.
Btw, is it working in this device?

i just download the gui, but i cant see the packages


Ok. After installing the GUI , seems that takes some time until the package pops up.

Thanks @delocoyo for opening this thread! I have the same problem on a Xperia 10. In the moment I have no idea how to make it running in a ‘shop like’ app.

But, for interim i could download and manually install the .rpm files from:
(this is the armv7 build for the Xperia 10, needed this in my case)

or look here:
(long software list with 154 entries, more choices and clicks necessary)

Thanks very very much to the dev’s for all this!!!

No I did not…

did now download the two .rpm’s and will try…

Thanks very much!!

You have to install sailfishos-chum to enable repositories. To use GUI (mainly POC at this moment), install sailfishos-chum-gui as well.

You can use Chum through zypper command line tool. This has to be done as root. Just search online on how to use it.

you download RPM and install it from After that, follow


Damm I feel so blank. RPM of chum download, but now how to see the app in the software. I download the zip of the GUI, but is just a zip that I dosnt know what to do with it. I extract it and thats it?

Now I have understand that we have to download the 2 rpm and installed the 2 of them. I thought it was just one of them. first install noarch and then arch64

Just now I downloaded both, and answered the questions OS:, and architecture: armv7hl for my Xperia 10.

Is this correct or is aarch64 the better version for my phone ?

Then I installed sailfishos-chum first, using File Browser, and next sailfishos-chum-gui. The Chum icon now appears on app grid and app starts and I can choose and install apps !

But in harbour-advanced-camera the camera selector does only work very buggy.

Did I choose the wrong architecture ?

No, armv7 is correct for all phones except Xperia10-II.
Also, you can’t install packages for the wrong architecture.
