This is a simple app to manage and run often used shell commands without using the terminal. It comes with some ready to use presets to show all features.

These include using mcetool to toggle display always on, a workaround to the missing jack detection on XA2 devices, find files, output various system status and connect to an SSH server using "fingerterm".


  • Search
  • Basic bash completion
  • Templates (commands that can be edited before execution)
  • Interactive mode using "fingerterm"
  • Output handling (copy lines and open files)
  • Error notifications
  • Cover actions


  • en
  • de
  • sv (by eson57)
  • zn_CH (by dashinfantry)
  • fr (by¬†Quenty31 and Google Translate, sorry)


With SFOS 4 the gnu-bash is currently replaced by busybox. This prevents the bash completion (compgen) to work. Also some commands may not run as intended anymore.

A workaround without warranty from https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/4659:

pkcon remove busybox-symlinks-bash


All features of the current roadmap are implemented. If you have reasonable use cases for later extension, tell me or fork: https://github.com/dscheinah/qcommand
