UPDATE: I'm lowering the price to $350.


I'm selling my C860 because I just don't really use it. I find that most of my time I have my powerbook with me. Consequently, it looks nearly new. I am including:

* C860 with all original packaging, manuals, etc. (US charger)
* 256MB SD card
* Sharp CE-AG06 digital camera card
* Senao SL 2011 WiFi card
* Sharp CE-RH1 remote & headphones
* pockettop keyboard
* retractable sync/charging cable
* additional small battery
* nylon case

It is flashed with the latest Cacko rom.

I am asking $400 for the whole lot, but will consider other offers. If I don't sell the package, I will consider selling items separately. The buyer pays actual shipping costs.

PM me or email d.maddock1@gmail.com if you are interested.

I've been trying to get the Zaurus-X-gcc cross-compiler to work with the Qtopia libs. Has anyone successfully done this?

Zaurus-X-gcc was put together using these instructions:
http://www.lucid-cake.net/osx_qpe/index_en.html

But, this doesn't seem to be helping me. I'd like to avoid the last resort of removing Zaurus-X-gcc and walking through the myriad of steps in the above link exactly as he does. In particular, what <arc-dir>, <work-dir>, and <src-dir> were used to set up Zaurus-X-gcc?

Thanks.

Dave.

While I use ZMacSync to get my PIM data on my Zaurus, I decided to write some scripts that automate some of my other common syncing tasks like copying plucker-ed news and other files, iTunes playlists, crossword puzzles, etc. This is a work in progress, but it is already at a usable state for me; hopefully, this information will make it much easier for others to do the same. Some of this can be used on linux as well.

First, I had to tackle the problem of automating ssh/scp actions because I have a password on my zaurus. I use some expect scripts to copy to/from the zaurus:

CODE
zcopyto:

#!/usr/bin/expect -f
set user [lindex $argv 0]
set host [lindex $argv 1]
set pass [lindex $argv 2]
set source [lindex $argv 3]
set dest [lindex $argv 4]
spawn sh -c "scp '$source' $user@$host:$dest"
expect "assword:" {send $pass\r}
expect eof


This script takes command line arguments and feeds them to an scp command. Note that you should escape spaces and wildcards in filenames, if used.

CODE
zcopyfrom:

#!/usr/bin/expect -f
set user [lindex $argv 0]
set host [lindex $argv 1]
set pass [lindex $argv 2]
set source [lindex $argv 3]
set dest [lindex $argv 4]
spawn sh -c "scp $user@$host:$source '$dest'"
expect "assword:" {send $pass\r}
expect eof


Likewise, this script copies from the zaurus to my computer.

CODE
zremovefrom:

#!/usr/bin/expect -f
set user [lindex $argv 0]
set host [lindex $argv 1]
set pass [lindex $argv 2]
set file [lindex $argv 3]
spawn ssh $user@$host
expect "assword:" {send $pass\r}
send "rm $file\r"
send "exit\r"
expect eof  


Deletes the given file from the zaurus.

CODE
zclearinbox:

#!/usr/bin/expect -f
set user [lindex $argv 0]
set host [lindex $argv 1]
set pass [lindex $argv 2]
spawn -noecho ssh $user@$host
expect "assword:" {send $pass\r}
send "cat /dev/null > /home/zaurus/Documents/Text_Files/inbox.txt\r"
send "exit\r"
expect eof


Finally, this expect script simply empties out a text file on the zaurus I use as an idea scratchpad. I call this script after another script that imports the data into my todo list on my mac.


I use these scripts as glue in this large applescript that does all the syncing:

CODE

set the_user to "zaurus"
set the_pass to "<yourpass>"
set the_iP to "<yourip>"

set toZDirectory to "Macintosh HD:Users:dave:Desktop:ToZ"

set cmd to ("cd /tmp; smbget -n -q -u " & the_user & " -p " & the_pass & " smb://" & the_iP & zInboxFile & "; echo 0" as Unicode text)
do shell script cmd

-- Read through the inbox file
tell application "Finder"
    set InboxFile to paragraphs of (read file localInboxFile)
    repeat with nextLine in InboxFile

    end repeat
    
    -- Erase temp file
    move file localInboxFile to trash
    
end tell

 set cmd to ("/Users/dave/bin/zcopyto " & the_user & " " & the_iP & " " & the_pass & " " & a & " " & "/mnt/card/Documents")
 do shell script (cmd)
 
 move file (toZDirectory & ":BBC News.pdb") to trash
    end if
    
    -- TODO: copy all files here into appropriate zaurus folders according to type
end tell

tell application "iTunes"
    set myPlaylist to playlist "ToZaurus"
    repeat with aTrack in (get every track of myPlaylist)
 set fileName to location of aTrack

 set cmd to ("/Users/dave/bin/zcopyto " & the_user & " " & the_iP & " " & the_pass & " " & a & " " & "/mnt/card/Documents/Music_Files/")
 do shell script (cmd)
 
 --TODO: remove track from the playlist
    end repeat
end tell


--
--
-- Done
--
--

display dialog ("Sync Done.")



The first section in the applescript is obvious settings. The toZDirectory variable is a directory I use as a Mac->Zaurus outbox. The idea is to move these files to the Zaurus; later, I intend to implement a Z->Mac one too.

The second section grabs the data from my Zaurus inbox.txt file and imports it into my task list system that uses OmniOutliner, called KGTD. Each line in the inbox is an item in the outline. Then, it clears out inbox.txt.

The next section runs a script that downloads Across Lite puzzles and copies them to the Z. I haven't posted that one, but I can if anyone is interested.

The next section handles my Mac->Z outbox directory. I haven't finished this section yet. Right now, it only moves my daily BBC news file for Opie Reader. This is generated every day via JPluck and a cron job. If anyone is interested in a JPluck.app bundle, the data file for the BBC news, and details on setting this part up, let me know. Ultimately, I want to move every file put in this directory to the Z, filtered into different places based on file type (Text_Files, Photo_Files, etc.).

The final section copies mp3s from an iTunes playlist to the Z. Ultimately, it should then remove the file from the playlist.


Has anyone else attempted to put together a similar system?

aI've been playing around with IRK's fantastic customizability. I'm curious about what changes people have made to the default configuration, handy macros, etc.

Here's what I've done with my pockettop:

Quick network disconnect:
CMD+d -- :QPE/Network:disconnectRequest(int):1

Netwok connect:
CMD+U -- :QPE/Network:connectRequest()

Emulate FN+n:
CMD+n -- #8217
A lot of apps use this combo as a shortcut for a new item, etc. I might change this to CMD+a because this key has 'new' printed on it.

Also had to change CMD+ADDRESS to #4154 to get the menu button emulation to work.

I've been playing around with the c3000 1.11 rom mentioned in this post:

http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=10992

with the intent to see what newer software I can get running on my c860 with cacko.

So far, I've packaged the Netfront 3.1, 1.5.4 update, which you can download below if you're interested.

http://dave.maddockfamily.com/zaurus/netfr...-lite-2_arm.ipk

I've been working on the music player now. I have it working, but the wma plugin doesn't want to load for some reason.

Anyway, I'm curious to know if anyone else was doing the same. Also, what differences (if any) are there in some of the other software that might make this effort worthwhile.

Dave.
