Not sure if it was my daughter playing with the TouchPad or what, but my HP App Catalog has been deleted. I have searched and searched and was not able to locate an IPK file for it. Does anyone have a solution that would work without completely wiping my device?

Rebooted the device since?

Can you find it through the just type bar?

Can you see it in the software manager?

Using the app Internals Pro or novaterm, is there a folder "com.palm.app.enyo-findapps" ? If so open that folder and look for a file labeled "appinfo.json" and open it through internals. Does it have a line "visible": false ? If so, change it to true, save the file, and reboot the device. I know where the ipk file for the app catalog is but its located in place that I dont think it is appropriate to give in public.

Keep us posted...

Rebooted several times

It is not in the software manager, or anywhere that I could locate.

I tried checking those options as well, and it just seems as though it was deleted from the TouchPad. I know it was there after the update, but not after my daughter was on it.

Dang, usually after a restart webOS will reinstall core apps that were deleted from its archives ipk files. Try a partial erase to see if that clears things up before going doctor. Do you know what you're daughter was doing with the device?

I wonder if going to the "Accounts" app and logging into your webOS account will invoke a download. Or the System Updates app.... Just a thought.

App catalog is managed from the software manager app. System updates only deals with updated webOS itself. Accounts app is for your online data accounts. The hope was that it was still in software manager or restart to provoke a resinstall of the stored IPK file already in the device.

use internalz pro (from preware), browse to /usr/palm/ipkgs you will find com.palm.app.enyo-findapps_5.0.2900.ipk click it, if internalz pro is ipk installer it will install, otherwise it will launch preware to install...

Isn't there a webos Repair Utility for the TP? Just run that and it should reinstall the missing files. Works for the phones, but I don't have a TP so I can't be certain there.

For reference. My app catalog was messed up earlier so I figured I'd give it a shot. Using Preware to remove it, and then doing the above worked just fine as a method for reinstalling the app catalog application.

Fantastic!!!
I'm in the middle of deleting and installing all my apps using the nodeleteipk patch, and by a mistake I removed the HP catalog. DUH!
I followed above advise and I now have the catalog back on my TP.
Thank you.

Martin :-)
