Hi there,

I'm trying to install qpdf2_freetype-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk on my C3000. (read about it on meanie's site)
when using the GUI installer, there is no package inside to be found, using terminal


#ipkg install qpdf2_freetype-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk

zcat: qpdf2_freetype-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk: nog in gzip format
zcat: stdin: unexpected end of file
ipkg_install_file: ERROR unpacking control.tar.tgz from qpdf2_freetype-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk


I already tried about 10 versions found on the net, I can not install one. Could somebody point me to a version that installs OK, or tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I installed the version from here with no problems.
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/
It's the Cacko feed.
These are the files I used:

hi huys,
generally speaking, are cacko feed ipks running on a standard slc3000 sharp rom ???
Jon_J
jpmatrix,
I don't know if it runs on standard Sharp rom. Try it and see.
You'll have to remember to get the depends mentioned also.
(libfreetype) and (libt1)

Thanks Mac for the info about the newer version.
It's about ½ size in bytes.
qpdf 2.2.1 - 856kb
qpdf 2.3.0 - 428kb

It still won't open my Illinois map PDF designed in Illustrator.
I'm hoping Picsel browser will, when I get it.
Picsel on my Palm opens this map in 3-4 seconds.

maybe it has something to do with the extra's illustrator puts in a pdf ?

Google should find this version:
qpdf2_render-freetype-2.3.0-070505a-1_arm.ipk
I haven't tried it. I have Picsel Browser now and *.PDF is no problem anymore smile.gif

No, I didn't need to. What do you mean by "illustrator garbage"?
EDIT: I used CorelDraw to edit it when I first removed the railroads from it. (Windoze)
I don't have a Mac, so I cannot use PDFshrink.
Picsel Browser opens that file with no problems.
