Package Browsing and Installation

Package Browsing

The user may connect to a remote HTTP server and be presented with a list of downloadable packages. The details of these packages may be perused so the user can make an informed decision on whether to download a package.

Packages which are not compatible with the version of Qt Extended running on the device and the device type are filtered out during package browsing and are not installable.

Install package

A selected package may be downloaded and installed onto the device.

Re-enable Packages (SXE only)

If packages are disabled by SXE they may be re-enabled, which allows them to be run again.

SXE Package Processing

When SXE is enabled, the packagemanager will perform extra security related tasks during the installation and uninstallation of packages including:

Uninstall Packages

Packages may be uninstalled, which removes them from the file system and from the launcher

Web Browser Integration

With minimal modification, web browsers can be integrated with Package Manager so that when a link is selected, the Package Manager's installation functionality is invoked. This allows package browsing and installation via a content provider's website.
