Hi everyone, I am new to this PDA thing! I have a Zaurus SL-C760, and every thing is in Japanese. My question is how do I change the language from Japanes, to English?
Also, I don't have the software to install on my computer so that I can plug it in to my zaurus, is there a website that can get the driver software for my computer from, so I can install the program?
Thanks to all help!!
Welcome to OESF and the world of Zaurus!
There are several options available to change from Japanese to English (depending on whether you want to keep Japanese abiltiy):
1. Install an alternative ROM - ie Cacko - has the option to add Japanese support
2. Change /home/zaurus/Settings/locale.conf to read 'en' or 'zh_TW' instead of 'ja' for the language setting.
3. Remove the qm translation files in /home/QtPalmtop/i18n/ja and comment out the various lines in .desktop files that have the japanese names of programs. I wrote a script that does this and it basically follows the info here http://mspencer.net/stuff/c700conv.html
I would suggest option 1. especially if you are not interested in using Japanese, but WARNING it means flashing a new ROM. Something that could stop your zaurus working correctly (although it is something that many people have successfully done many times - myself included)
