Install an Application
 Make sure you are connected to the internet and launch Installer.
 At launch, Installer will initially refresh a list of installable programs. After refresh is complete, press the INSTALL button from the bottom bar to view a list of Categories. This is also the default page of the Installer application.
 Select a Category from the category list, then select a package to install.

- To update or uninstall packages, simply replace step  with the desired function UPDATE or UNINSTALL and repeat steps  through .
Sharing applications is done by uploading packages to the Community Repository, which is a similar concept to the Multiverse repository in Ubuntu. Anyone can upload applications. You can also maintain your own repository independently from Openmoko.
- Installer is a specialized GUI front-end of Packagekit over DBus interface.
- Please run Installer under stable network conditions and enough power supply. Once Installer is launched, it will actually try to detect repositories you installed. This will take some time if your network condition is not stable.
- If you do not have access to WiFi, a USB connection is recommended.
- The default Packagekit backend on Neo is opkg, but is not restricted to opkg.
- Installer refreshes the package meta-data every 2 days.
- While running Installer, it will also launch packagekitd automatically, in which it will lock the libopkg for synchronization issues. If you want to use opkg, you may terminate Installer and killall packagekitd.
- You can also talk with Packagekit through DBus.
