This is an opensource database very equavalent to HanDBase. Since it is opensource it can be compiled to run on +/- any linux distribution. I have used Portabase initially on my Zaurus and then on my Netwalker. I found it very handy to have a database on a mobile device as well as my desktop PCs (home & work). Particularly if the database files are stored in a Dropbox folder for instant synchronization.


PS I am in not associated with the project in any way, I just found this a very useful program.

I use Dropbox since it simplifies syncing files across the various real & real Windows & Linux computers I have between home & work. They have free storage of 2Gb. Unfortunately they do not have an arm binary yet. Apparently it may be in the works. If any of you use Dropbox, please add a vote on their forums.
Dropbox proprietary arm binary

I anyone is interested, I am using rsync to upload files from my Netwalker to my "always on" server at home over ssh:
rsync -ave 'ssh' ~/files/ user@homeserver.net:~/Dropbox/

This works but it is not ideal & I need to have a server always running to make it useful.

I thought I would upload the binary & resources - one day I will try my hand at making a real debian package however I have a few to many other things taking up my time. This needs to be uncompressed in root:
cd /
sudo tar xzvf iqnotes-2.0.4-armel.tar.gz

I needed a replacement for the closed source tkcCard database. The best replacement so far seems to be Portabase. I have recompiled it for the Netwalker. If anyone is interested, I have added the debian archive. I do not know much about creating archives but this should not do to much damage. I used the original archive and substituted the armel binaries. The other program that I have used on my Zaurus was IqNotes which I have compiled from the desktop source code. If anyone is interested, I can upload it to the forum.

I have been very keen on getting this functional on my Netwalker and it seems to be working. It does require mixing packages which may potentially cause problems. This was scraped together from various sources.

(From http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/kapper1224/diary/201003120000/)

Add lucid to /etc/apt/sources.list:
 #deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty main universe multiverse restricted
 deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ lucid main universe multiverse restricted

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install firefox
sudo aptitude install openoffice.org
sudo aptitude install netbook-remix-efl

Note: It is probably better to remove lucid from apt sources.list file or alternatively to have both jaunty & lucid available use apt pinning described below.

This is required before betbook-launcher-efl will run:
(From http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/sear...clnk&gl=us)

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libembryo-ver-svn-02.so.0 /usr/lib/embryo.so.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libembryo-ver-svn-02.so.0 /usr/lib/embryo.so

Auto launch:
Add netbook-launcher-efl to
Preferences -> Startup Applications

To get the remix theme without requiring Ctrl-Alt-Esc:
In System tools/Configuration editor -> set apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop to false,


(From http://www.mybookmarks.ro/linux/how-to-add...el-locked-fix/)

Ubuntu Netbook Edition 2D:
sudo ln -s /etc/xdg/xdg-une/autostart/maximus-autostart.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/ #this makes Maximus run at login
sudo ln -s /etc/xdg/xdg-une-efl/autostart/netbook-launcher-efl.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/ #this launches the UNE interface at login
sudo ln -s /usr/share/gconf/une/default/20_une-gconf-default /usr/share/gconf/defaults/
sudo ln -s /usr/share/gconf/une/mandatory/20_une-gconf-mandatory /usr/share/gconf/defaults/
sudo update-gconf-defaults

Then log out and in the the GDM login screen, chose "GNOME" instead of "Ubuntu Netbook Edition" or "Ubuntu Netbook Edition 2D"

For those living on the edge (i.e. make a recovery disk first): you could try Apt Pinning:
Add lucid & jaunty to /etc/apt/sources.list:
 deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ jaunty main universe multiverse restricted
 deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ lucid main universe multiverse restricted

sudo vi /etc/apt/preferences
Package: *
Pin: release a=jaunty
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release a=lucid
Pin-Priority: 600

Then do:
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude safe-upgrade -> this may take a while to sort out conflicts

Notes on pinning:

Install package from specific version:
apt-get install -t lucid package
aptitude -t lucid install package

Check what versions of "package" are available:
apt-cache policy package

Keep a package from being updated:
echo package hold | dpkg --set-selections

echo package install | dpkg --set-selections

Alternatives to pinning -> compile source from a development version:

Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu intrepid main restricted universe multiverse
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get build-dep package
sudo apt-get -b source -t lucid package
