I've just finished installing Cacko Rom 1.23 on my C1000 and converting it back to full Japanese.
You may ask, why bother when the original ROM is already Japanese ?
Well naturally like the rest of the folks here, I wanted the speed improvements in video playback plus the many other drivers and kernel tweaks. Furthermore, it was the only way to get my Sony Clie PEGA-WL100 wifi CF card (actually a rebadged Intel PRO/Wireless 2011B ) to work on the C1000. And lastly, it gave me the opportunity to free up the 33MB of internal memory taken up by the SLJisho dictionary which I`ve outgrown.

For those still unfamiliar with the Zaurus, the language conversion process involves putting back the .qm and lib files from the original Sharp ROM, which can be done by simply installing the Japanese support packages. However, the packages are missing a few files.
This brief guide will go through the installation steps and explain how to "manually" add the missing files. It's a straightforward exercise (though admittedly I spent an entire week searching for the solution to the keyboard error) considering the amount of work already done by the Cacko team in compiling the support packages smile.gif

It goes without saying that you should first backup your PIM data (from /home/zaurus/Applications/dtm )and other personal settings before proceeding. I would also recommend doing a NAND backup (since you NEED to restore to the original Japanese ROM for your Zaurus warranty to remain valid)

(Updated 18-5-2006 to include the C860 guide and optional and previously missing items)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A) Installation steps for SL-C1000:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


1) Flash with Full Cacko ROM 1.23 by following the guide in Maslovsky's site.
Be sure to get the right package for the C1000.
http://cacko.oesf.org/downloads/rom/1.23/S...-1029311005.zip

2) Install the Japanese support packages:
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/japanese-help_1.23_arm.ipk , and then
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/japanese-su...1k_1.23_arm.ipk
Qtopia will be restart automatically.
You will now get the Japanese keyboard and handwriting input, but everything else is still in English.

3) Install ZEditor:
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/zeditor_2.2...glish-1_arm.ipk
Assign root privilege to ZEditor, then go to /home/zaurus/Settings/locale.conf.
Open the file and change the language to Japanese:
Language = ja
Save and reboot.
You will now be greeted by the familiar Japanese system messages and menus, and most of the applications are now in Japanese.

4) The remaining few applications that are still in English will have to be manually converted.
So you will need the files from the original Japanese ROM, which I've consolidated and uploaded here:
japanese-support-c1k_&_c860_1.23_supplementary.zip
(unzip it on your PC then transfer to Zaurus)

Install TreeExplorerQT:
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/treeexplorer_1.7.5-1_arm.ipk
and use it to copy the unzipped supplementary files into the appropriate directories as follows:
(Note: you will also need to set the file permissions manually once they're in place; take reference from the existing files in each directory )

5) HancomWord -- still in English.
Replace /opt/QtPalmtop/binlib/HandcomeMobileWord.so

6) Text Editor -- In the character code setup menu (文字コード設定) , SHIFT-JIS, JIS and EUC options are missing.
Replace /opt/QtPalmtop/binlib/textedit.so

7) User Dictionary -- missing.
Add these 2 files:
/opt/QtPalmtop/apps/Applications/userdic.desktop
/opt/QtPalmtop/bin/userdic

8) Opera 7.25 -- mojibake when viewing Japanese sites.
Replace /opt/QtPalmtop/opera/chartables.bin

9) Japanese handwriting input (CRIM) panel-- input method icons are missing
Add the ten *.png files into /opt/QtPalmtop/pics144

10) Perform a backup now!
Then proceed to the final step.

11) Keyboard -- In Japanese input mode, pressing Shift+0 produces mojibake instead of the expected full-width tilde.
===================================================================
Caution: take special care when editing qpe.sh, as it controls the Qtopia user interface
===================================================================
Use Zeditor to edit /home/QtPalmtop/qpe.sh as follows:
delete the line:
export UNICODEMAP="cp866"
and replace it with:
export UNICODEMAP_JP="open-19970715-ms,cp932,nec-vdc,ibm-vdc,udc"
(just copy and paste the line using the included .txt version of this guide)

12) save and exit, then Reboot.
Congratulations, you now have full Japanese support on your C1000.
note: If your Zaurus starts acting strange, it probably means you've messed up qpe.sh.
Simplest way to fix this is to reformat and use the backup from step 10.

13) Optional items:
a ) SLJisho (the built-in dictionary software)
Add these 2 files:
/opt/QtPalmtop/bin/sljisho
/opt/QtPalmtop/apps/Applications/sljisho.desktop
and restart Qtopia.
Then install the dictionary data files : http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/japanese-dict_1.0-2_arm.ipk

b ) J/E Translator
Application files: http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/translator_1.0.0-1_arm.ipk
The two sets of translator data files are found in the Installation CD-ROM.
Or you can download from the Cacko feed:
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/translator-...1.0.0-1_arm.ipk
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/translator-...1.0.0-1_arm.ipk


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
B ) Installation steps for SL-C860:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


1) Flash with Full Cacko ROM 1.23 by following the guide in Maslovsky's site.
Be sure to get the right package for the C860.
http://cacko.oesf.org/downloads/rom/1.23/S...-1029311005.zip

2)The カナひら and 全/半 keys are currently mapped as Ctrl and Alt keys respectively.
So you need to flash the latest Japanese kernel patch to release these two keys (not required for C1000 and later models).
http://cacko.oesf.org/downloads/rom/1.23/C...-1132170506.zip

3) Install the Japanese support package:
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/japanese-support_1.1_arm.ipk
(this package already includes the japanese helpfiles)
Qtopia will be restart automatically.
You will now get the Japanese keyboard and handwriting input, but everything else is still in English.

4) Install ZEditor:
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/zeditor_2.2...glish-1_arm.ipk
Assign root privilege to ZEditor, then go to /home/zaurus/Settings/locale.conf.
Open the file and change the language to Japanese:
Language = ja
Save and reboot.
You will now be greeted by the familiar Japanese system messages and menus, and most of the applications are now in Japanese.

http://www.aonorokugo.net/rokugo/misc/zaur...pplementary.zip
(unzip it on your PC then transfer to Zaurus)

That'll be great. Better still if the Japanese Support ipks can be updated to include my supplementary files and keyboard fix.

Great howto! Thank you. There is just one problem. Now this might be because I'm on a c3100 and not a 1000, I don't know. But there are no japanese fonts installed. Applications like tree explorer show blocks.

And upon a reboot everything is still in english. I'm looking right now for the fonts, maybe they are in the feed.

Dang, ok I figured out I installed the japanese support package for the c1k instead of the one for the 3100. I reformatted to start fresh and installed the c3100 support package from the cacko feed. Now qtopia wont start any more.....what is wrong?

If you boot into the console using D+B boot, then you can mount /dev/mtdbock3 and delete libCRIM.* and it will let you boot into qtopia again. the package is also missing the icons for the inputmethods sad.gif

Thanks, hey isn't CRIM the character recognition? Does that mean cacko rom on the 3100 doesn't have this?

I think you should reflash cacko, and retry from square one.
Like I mentioned, my guide is strictly for the C1000, so obviously in steps 1 and 2 you need to get the 3100 version of the support files since some of the lib files are specific to each model.

And similarly in steps 5 to 7 its safer to get the files from your own C3100.

-Japanese Fonts-
you don't need to install any. All the japanese fonts are handled by the LCfonts (just like in the original japanese ROM) which are already in the Cacko ROM. LCfonts will automatically become the system font when you set the language to "ja".

-CRIM-
yes it handles the japanese handwriting system and IME (and therefore omitted from Cacko ROM).
It gets (re)installed into your Zaurus in step 2 of my guide.
The few missing icons (eg when you switch to the 'gojuon' input and the 50音 icon appears) mentioned by Meanie are purely cosmetic so I didn't bother with them. You can still get them from /opt/QtPalmtop/pics144/padselect*
(10 small png files) from the original Japanese ROM.
Maybe I'll include them in a later update for the sake of completeness.

Ok reflashed to the sharp rom and now I'm back in cacko with some usefull things.

First of all, for any c3100 users out there who are doing this the "japanese-support-c3100_1.23_arm.ipk" is somewhat broken. For some reason after it is installed qtopia will crash. Thanks to meanie I learned that it is something to do with libCRIM that it installs. I fixed it by deleting those libCRIM files that the support package installs and replacing them with the libCRIM files from my japanese sharp rom. libCRIM is located in
/opt/QtPalmtop/plugins/inputmethods/

I attached libCRIM.tar so you c3100 users can just untar the libs and copy them to the above location. "tar -xvf libCRIM.tar" should do it.


Second, the input method icons seem to be missing. I don't know if this is a c3100 cacko problem or a universal one. Anyway just untar the input_icons.tar package and copy the png files into /opt/QtPalmtop/pics144/ and then you have them. biggrin.gif
Attached File(s)
Attached File  libCRIM.tar ( 1.02MB ) Number of downloads: 113
Attached File  input_icons.tar ( 19.5K ) Number of downloads: 111

According to this thread: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=15826
you don't need a separate kernel.
And you'll probably have an easier time with setting up a full japanese environment than if you were to make it dual-language like in the thread.

I can't extract zip files with treeexplorer!
So I did it on another computer and made a tar. Now I have the files but I can't overwrite the files from /opt/QtPalmtop/binlib/ for example because it says it's read-only sad.gif
