I have a Zaurus c700 with a non-working touchscreen, but the LCD works.

So i was wondering is there some kind of utility that helps me using the zaurus? Liko moving the mouse cursor vise curosr keys or using a mouse or probably a bluetooth mouse (i have a CF BT card, but not a USB host CF card)...

I would apreciate any help and consider the fact that i'm a total linux noob and have the zaurus only one day. biggrin.gif

Sorry for my bad english.

You could
a/ use a bluetooth adaptor and a bluetooth mouse and keyboard
b/ use a wifi adaptor and run VNC server on the Z

however, in both cases, it'll be tricky to set up the Z without a working touchscreen in the first place!

Hm, I think the Zaurus recognised that the TS is broken because it doesn't report it in a device manager so the calibration (screen aligment) isn't even needed.

VNC server is out of the question because i want to use it far from my PC, but using a BT mouse seems nice. How about the cursor pad on the Zaurus? Can that bu used to control the cursor?

Of course...as it's been broken accidentally by...maybe...an over excited child standing on it for instance...would you not be eligible for a claim on your home insurance? smile.gif

hmm, sorry, I can't help you there. I do know I connected up a USB keyboard & mouse to my 6000 host and everything just worked, so I would hope that bluetooth would too.

you might have to reboot the zaurus into console mode in order to add some setup scripts to connect to the keyboard/mouse when it starts up. I know *in*theory*how* to do this, but *haven't* done it, so you'll need to find an expert, sorry.
