I finaly got my Zaurus C760 working!! Now I would like to get some software from this site: http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/ but the problem is, when I try to download file, konqueror doesn't offer me to download it, instead it opens it, so I get just tons of symbols displayed in the konqueror. I can't even get a different browser, like opera.
I ordered USB cable, but I will get it only after a week. Is there any way to download these files and install them or it can be only done by cable?

If I want to install for example E17 or different GUI, it installs just as regular software, or it has to do something with reinstalling everything on rom..?

and what do I need to do to install pdaXrom?

Sorry for the stupid questions, this is the first time I own a PDA, so it's all confusing for me! unsure.gif

to install an IPK if you can't do it locally, do it on your desktop PC and save it to an SD card.

then on the Z start a console, become root with "su", find the file and "ipkg install xxx.ipk".

or, if you know the URL, on the Z do this:
wget http://somehost/somedir/file.ipk
ipkg install file.ipk
