New Version 1.9.2 of KDE-Pim/Pi is now available.
The current Opie-Mail (latest cvs version) is now intregrated in
KDE-Pim/Pi as KMicroMail.
THANK YOU TO THE OPIE DEVELOPERS FOR THAT NICE APPLICATION!
And thank you to the original KDE-Pim Desktop developers as well for the original KOrganizer and KAdressbook code!
KMicroMail (KMM) access is integrated KA/Pi and KO/Pi and KA/Pi access is integrated in KMM.
I had to add some enhancements to KMM to make is useable, e.g. the sorting of the mail in the listview was not implemented.
And I rearranged some icons, added a saving button to the edit dialog, ...
It is really fascinating to me, to see such a powerful PIM environment on such a small device.
Only the actual syncing of contacts is missing. That will follow, of course.
You can download it at
Important other improvements were made,
here is the change log:
********** VERSION 1.9.2 ************
KDE-Pim/Pi has got a new member:
KmicroMail (KM/Pi) is a mail program,
which can handle IMAP and POP mail access.
It is based on Opie-Mail v3.
All dependencies to the Opie libraries ar removed,
such that no additional Opie lib is needed.
It is already integrated in KO/Pi and KA/Pi.
It it now available for the Zaurus,probably it
will be available for other platforms later.
Create your own contact (name + email)
in KA/Pi, select this contact and choose menu:
Settings - Set Who Am I.
Now the settings of this contact are used as
the sender data in KM/Pi.
KDE-Pim/Pi is split up in five different
packages now precompiled for Sharp Zaurus:
The libs are needed for any
of the following programs:
Independ from that, there is the alarm applet
available for KO/Pi, which also offers
quick access for a new mail or
showing the addressbook.:
Independend means, that the alarm applet
does not need any of the libs or programs above to run.
But it would be quite useless without these programs.
If you get a
"This application depends on other programs"
during installation of
you probably do not have to care about that.
kmicrokdelibs_1.9.2 will come with some
resource plugins, which needs additional libraries.
(E.g. libopie1, if you want to use the
opie resource connector in KA/Pi).
If you do not have this libraries installed,
you simply cannot use the resource.
To make it clear:
If the libraries are missing, the applications
using kmicrokdelibs will start,
because the resources are plugins.
KO/Pi and friends are now installable on SD-Card!
It is recommended to install all libs and apps
on the SD card or all in the internal storage.
There may be problems, if this is mixed.
Fixed two bugs in the alarm notification on Windows.
KO/Pi uses now the latest version of libical.
Libical is the library which actually reads
the calendar files and extract the data from it.
With the old version, there were problems
(crashes or program hangs) when licical did read
files, which were not stored from KO/Pi.
I do not know, if the new libical works perfect,
but actually it works much better than
the old version.
There are no problems with compatibility with
old calendar files of KO/Pi, of course!
New in KA/Pi:
Opie addressbook resource connector available!
You will need libopie1 and the opie addressbook,
With the Opie addressbook resource connector,
you can access the Opie addressbook readonly in KA/Pi.
If you want to edit or import the data into KA/Pi,
a) Create an Opie resource.
(Menu: Settings-Configure Resources).
After configuration and restarting KA/Pi you should see
the Opie contacts in KA/Pi.
Select some or all Opie contacts.
To know exactly, what contacts are Opie contacts,
do this: Choose menu:
View-Modify View - TAB Fields.
Select in the above list "Resource" and click
down arrow to add it to the "Selected fields".
Now you have a new column "Resource" in your list,
where you can see, what an Opie resource is.
++++ NOTE end.)
Ok, we do have now some Opie contacts seleted.
(Use SHIFT or CTRL key in order to multiple select).
c) Choose menu: Edit-Copy.
d) Choose menu: Edit-Paste.
e) Select the resource, you want to add the contacts to.
Congrats! Now you have read/write access to the copied
opie contacts as "real" KA/Pi contacts.
