I could not fine any reference to this with search. KDE Korganizer has been ported to the Zaurus for some time. http://korganizer.kde.org/korganizer/download.html

There is another version named KO/Pi for Platform Independent. It is shown on the above page and the developer has a page here. http://www.pi-sync.net/html/latest.html There are newer versions than shown on the page: http://www.pi-sync.net/daunlood/latest/kor..._1.6.0e_arm.ipk http://www.pi-sync.net/daunlood/latest/kor..._1.6.0e_arm.ipk

I have been using this for a couple days and it is great. Others and the author have been on DevNet with some nice feedback. I don't know if anyone else saw that DevNet is offline, hopefully temporarily. I'll e-mail the author about ZUG.

If you are looking for a PIM that works, with alarms for appointments and todos take a good look at OK/Pi.

I saw this at DevNet... Looks very promising, and those talking about it seemed to give it very positive reviews (save not being able to import Sharp/Zaurus data). I'd be interested in hearing more in depth reviews.

It can import from the xml format (Old Sharp ROMs and OZ ROMs), it can also export vCalendar and vCards which Outlook can import. There's a plugin for Outlook which allows you to export vCards and vCalendar files (I've not got the link on me, it's at home). So although it's not syncing, it's possible to get data back and forth. I also believe that the Linux situation is better than the Windows situation.

After seeing the raves on Zaurus devnet, even I gave it a try. Imported my tkcCalendar data just fine. The tkcTodo data wont be imported since tc broke the older Sharp's XML format with todo.

But that was a minor pain for me since I my todo is mostly sparce (lazy me that is :wink: )
And in fact after trying KO/PI (i had loaded the KO/E initially) I am seriously thinking of giving up using the tkcPIM apps for now. One integrated environment for the PIM's is what I have been looking for for a long time.

Just a question about the sync options.... Is there any sync solution for Evolution on Linux ?

I don't use Evolution, but does it use the *.ics file format? And can you tell it the file name to use? If so, you are in luck.

I use KOrganizer and it uses as default either calendar.ics or std.ics; KO/Pi uses mycalendar.ics. I used unison to copy mycalendar.ics to my Linux box, setup KO to use mycalendar.ics, and I have my appointments and todos on both! With unison, I can move the file from desktop to Z and and have a type of sync.

What would be the easiest way to migrate my Sharp 3.3 PIM data over to Korganizer. I intellisync with palm desktop on xp but would like to get the data to suse linux deskop korg. Eventually i'll try unison for syncing but being a relative linux newbe i wanted to start with something easy (somebody needs to write a zaurus for dummies). I assume korg on the zaurus stores the file somewhere where i could copy and move it to wherever it needs to be for the desktop korg. Thanks

I've just found the ZiCal tool on the web: http://noir.s7.xrea.com/archives/000059.html

You can use either Exicte (http://www.excite.co.jp/world/url/, use the right checkbox)
or Bable Fish (http://world.altavista.com/) to translate it. (exicte translates better)

What I understood from the translation is that ZiCal can read ShrapROM’s PIM data
(both the old XML and the new 3.X format) and export it in iCalendar format
(i.e the Korganizer’s native format)

Hope this helps

Okay - this is just straight out of my head after playing and setting up a PocketPC - phew :-)

But a small thought emerged in my head - their sync tool (Active Sync) is great, and i was wondering if it would be possible to code(or is it just stupid) a Zaurus program that can communicate with Active Sync and that way fake being a Pocket PC. Thereby one shouldn't program anything that talks/works with Outlook and such. I know it might be stupid but just a thought. I must be easier to send and receive using the Active Sync protocol.

Interesting idea.

Now we just need some linux enthusiasts that want to write code to sync. with Microsoft ActiveSink smile.gif

You do realise the next release would be guarnateed not to work.

I had previously tried korganizer but it was too slow to use.

Trying 1.5.0 of KO/Pi now, having just exported my DTM calendar+ToDo with zical 0.1.1 (talk about easy, you start the server, telnet to your zaurus, do a wget http://127.0.0.1:8990 zaurus.ics and then in KO/Pi do a Load/Save import (*.ics) of zaurus.ics).

...

It does seem worth using, so I'll download 1.6.0e and try that out, together with the alarm daemon. To me syncing is not a big must, worst case scenario I backup my zaurus every few days anyway, so I should be able to use the backup mycalendar.ics file in any other program which supports icalendar format.

In terms of speed to load, I've added the fast load option by adding the line to the korganizer.desktop ->
CODE
CanFastload=1
It consumes about 4 megs of "free" memory. The 32 megs of cached stays the same. So far the smaller amount of memory has not been an issue. Since Linux does a better job of memory management hopefully there won't be an issue. Best part, no more pregnant pauses when I open my Z in a meeting to check my availability :oops: Don't want to take away from the oohs & aahs when I show off the clamshell design! laugh.gif

Will this only work on a C7xx? I tried it on my SL-5500, /home/QTPalmtop/apps/PIM/korganizer.desktop and the option does not appear even after a Qtopia restart or a reboot. Only run as root appears.
I have an 8 mb swapfile in RAM that helps, and will absorb FastLoad penaltiy as well.

Wierd, I'm a relative Linux newbie but I see no reason why it wouldn't work on a 5500. However, I am currently running the Cacko Qtopia ROM, but tKc & Cacko have more in common than differences :wink:

Anyway, the checkbox for fast load appeared after editing the .desktop file, no Qtopia restart required. Check your text editor, perhaps it left some symbol behind Qtopia doesn't like.

Cheers,

It is Opie Edit and is supposed to be clean. <shrug> Ok, where we go with vi, ugh!
I don't mind vi, it is those obtuse commands on that teensy keyboard, ugh!

That was it, I love vi / I hate vi /I love ..... :wink:

Sweet! thanks.

1st xarope -> forget 1.50 and download the 1.6.0e version, much better biggrin.gif

Ok, anybody willing to translate the above for a newbie? I've installed ZiCal and know that I've got to connect to it for it to extract the DTM data. I'm assuming this will be difficult to do on a winblows box (at work my only option). Can I use PuTTy to wget from the Z from winblows? Is there anyway to extract the data and keep it locally on the Z for import?

Any guidance would be great.
