ha, too late to uninstall I already did, manually
Grrrr and the ipk file I'm using is just fine. The interesting thing about all of this is that I deleted as root all of the files in /usr/QtPalmtop/plugins/applets after shutting down the applet -- and it magically reappears upon startup. I've done everything as root, I just don't understand ... all I can think of is maybe it would work if I mounted the rom dir as rw but I don't know how to unmount it first so..............
cmisip, I tried that -- it tells me socket not open repeatedly and then tells me to add -qws to the command line which was odd as I was just doing it from a terminal inside qtopia
