Hi, me again...

For some reason when it comes to installing packages, I become suddenly, inexplicably feeble-minded (been around windows too long, i guess). My client has asked me to find a good HTML editor, so I did some searching and found one called Darkstar. So i downloaded the package, which is called:


Now what do I do? I dumped the file on the SD card, inserted it back in the Zaurus, found the Add/Remove software function in Cacko, chose the "install packages" button, and after that I'm lost. There doesn't seem to be any kind of navigation to point at the package on the SD card, and the list screen stares defiantly back at me, quite empty.

Please, what am I doing wrong?

Well, I've updated my darkStar page with a URL to the ipk.

I am curious what makes you conclude it doesn't work. Did you follow all the debugging steps in my IPK installation guide? It's pretty hard to help when not knowing exactly what the last step you took, on which model/ROM, and seeing output from command line. Here's my long-winded suggestions: wink.gif


I hope some of this helps someone, but I'm not sure any zaurus html editor will give you what you want. Why does your client want an html editor, what characteristics is he looking for?
