I'm wondering what most c3x00 owners out there are doing for calender programs either under pdaXii13 or cacko? Does anyone here use gpe-calendar under pdaXii13 on c3000 and have used it reliably for any considerable length of time? I've not tried the last few releases of pdaXii13 so maybe it works now?

Maybe its a problem just with pdaXii13? Does gpe-calendaer work properly under Angstrom or the latest pdaXrom version?

Are all Cacko users just using the Sharp default calendar app? Are there any other good calendar apps for cacko, pdaXii13 or Angstrom?

I'm presuming from the lack of responses that nobody is using gpe-calendar then so I'm presuming it is still broke.

I don't need anything amazingly powerful and it doesn't need to sync with anything either but

a) It must work reliably
b ) It must support alarms and waking the Z up from suspend if necessary
c) Must be able to backup and restore the calendar

I originally asked for possible solutions running under Angstrom, pdaXii13 or cacko but it sounds like Angstrom isn't quite ready to replace pdaXii13 for me yet so I'm just looking for a working calendar app for pdaXii13 now.

I tried gpe-calendar. But the version available for Angstrom (which I was using at the time) was not the same as that on my desktop (debian), and the file formats were incompatible. So, I could not propagate calendar entries from one machine to another. Then, with the next update of Angsstrom, the new version of gpe-calendar would not read the calendar files from the previous version. That ended my experiment with gpe-calendar. Changing formats -- and not even providing upward compatibility, makes the damn thing unusable.

If you switch to xfce4 for your window-manager, you can use orage, which is what I am now doing (using titchy/debian on the Z).

kdepimpi alarm solution for pdaXrom.

The link above leads to a thread with a working alarm solution of beta1/beta3 or pdaXii3. I've been using it for 6 months without troubles.

I have another question :
Does wakeup work on debian ?
How do you suspend in xfce4 ? I'm using apm -s to suspend, but the Z gives a blank screen when resuming. I don't have the issue when suspending from console.

I use the button on the Z to suspend, and to wake up. With debian (titchy), I don't have --- though it may be possible to arrange --- any suspend-after-idle or the like. But the button works, and it wakes up properly. I have not had a black screen on wakeup since ---- one of the Angstrom releases I think.

to return somewhat to the OT, certainly this does not wake up from suspend on an alarm. I don't know of any rom/distro which would do that.
