I've installed the crosswords game from the Opie feed, but I have no idea where to find crossword files for free.

If someone knows where, please tell me.

If you have some free ones, please host them somewhere.

Thanks everyone,

Can someone please tell me what this error means?

Cannot find font definition file /usr/local/qt-embedded/lib/fonts/fontdir - is $QTDIR set correctly?

I've installed some apps and this is what I get when I try to run them at the command line.

I can't seem to figure out which packages in 3.5.2 are extra fonts. Can someone please tell me which ones to install to get extra fonts?

Right now the only fonts I have are Fixed and Vera and I would like more choices.

Here's the situation:

I have a file called MyZSafe (no extension) that is my ZSafe saved database. I would like it to open up in ZSafe from the Doctab when I tap on it. Of course, when I tap on it (it's icon is a ?) I get a message that OZ does not know what to do with a document of type application/octet-stream.

Fair enough. Obviously there is some connection not made. So after reading posts about mime types and .desktop files I thought I would try something. First, note, that there is currently no .desktop file in the directory with my MyZSafe file.

So here's what I did: I opened /etc/mime.types in vi and added the line: application/zsafe zsafe to the beginning of the file. Then I renamed my MyZSafe file to MyZSafe.zsafe

Sure enough, after restarting Opie I get the MyZSafe icon in the Doctab to have a ZSafe icon and when I tap it it opens in ZSafe. But (and this is what sucks) as soon as I do that I get a second MyZSafe icon in the Doctab and sure enough, a MyZSafe.desktop file has been created in the directory that holds the MyZSafe file.

So, what I would like to know is:

1. How do I fix my scenario? (I would like only one icon for the MyZSafe file in the Doctab and I would like it to open in ZSafe when I tap it.)

2. Where can I read about exactly how these .desktop files and mime.types all work?

3. (And further to #2, I noticed that a .desktop file for an application icon and one for a document icon are structured differently. Is there info on exactly what goes into each type of .desktop file somwhere?)

Thanks everyone.

I've tried to follow the link in the ReleaseNotes message on the feed, but it seems broken.

Where are the release notes for 3.5.2? I want to see what was fixed before I re-flash.
