I have done some thinking after posting this. As far I know Linux does not give you a choice of where to install an application using regular package managers.
So the answer may be no.

Technically speaking, unless application has hardcoded paths there should be no problem installing it whereever you want it on Linux, you'll just need to either add path to it's executable to PATH variable or explicitly specify full path when starting it.

I was speaking out of ignorance.

So it is technically possible. Does the default setup of Jolla give an option of installing to SD card?

That I don't know as I don't own the Jolla phone yet (I'm oustide of EU), I'm not aware of any freely available existing ports to other devices, and I don't have enough time/skills to attempt to port it myself.
