Hi V-Man, thanks, I installed the libqtopia 1.6.0 arm ipk and after the version qtjournal 1.0.3, I trie to install in the CF card discarding some advise that the program perhaps would not function. Apparently it installed, the icon appears in the tab, but when actioned, it seems to work, but nothing more, I tried other version, the samething....that´s all that I can say. Wait your help and Season´s Greetings

V-Man, HI V-man, I`m waiting your help.....


can you provide more details about your setup? what model Z, what ROM are you using...

you also should un-install it from the CF and try installing it to ram... I have no troubles with this app on my 760 (with the qt cacko rom).

Thanks offroadgeek, I´m working with a Z SL 5500, and as I said in my first post version 3.13. After your post I installed the package in the main memory, and happens the samething: The icon appears, seems to work but remain so, don´t open the program. Tia for the help

can you try to launch qtjournal from the terminal and see what errors come up? you're probably just missing a lib or something. I don't have my 5500 with me, otherwise I'd try it. I can do that later tonight.

Sorry for the delay in replying (work sucks). . .
I have it working on the 3.10 rom. All I did was install the two ipk's to main ram and it worked. I tried installing just qt journal alone first. It did just what you described, would not stay open. I then installed the other ipk and it worked without a problem. You might try installing the lib ipk to ram and the journal to your card if memory is tight. It sounds like something has gone wrong with the lib install and qtjournal can't find the lib files it requires. Let me know if this helps any.

Good Luck

Excuse me V-man for the insistence...and thanks to offroadgeek.I tried to launch the program from the terminal and the response was: error while loading shared libraries: libqtopia.so.1 : cannot load objet file: No such file or directory. Now I can understand a little more but not the suficient. What to do now? I think that both ipk where correctly installed...
Thanks very much for your sugestions
offroadgeek
baptista - did you install qpe-libqtopia_1.6.0-13_arm.ipk? you can get it from here
baptista
Hi offroadgeek, yes I installed the library taken from the same site of qtjournal and installed it in RAM, and I saw the two packages (qtj and library in the filesystem)...I don´t know linux...I´m trying but I wait for your new help... and thanks very, very much
V-Man
bpatista: It sounds like the qpe-libqtopia ipk did not install correctly.

One thing to try is to uninstall it and then reinstall it. If it broke on the first install, this may correct the problem.
baptista
Thanks V-Man for the help, I uploaded newly the two programs for correcting eventuals corruptions. Installed first the qpe-libqtopia in Ram and after the QTJournal also in Ram.The things are the same.....well, I suppose that QTJournal don´t functions in my machine due to some kind of setup that I´m no prepared for correct.(when I launch from the terminal I have the same response that you know} I´ll work with other type of programs like Notezaurus or Portabase and ok. I can´t take more time from you and from offoadkeek....I beg your pardon and thanks to you for the dedication. I am learning very much in this forum, I feel at home here...thanks

After upgrading my Z (5500) a few weeks ago to the new ROM (3.10), I experienced the same silly problem.

Sadly, I forgot about running the app from the console, to see any error messages. rolleyes.gif Thanks for the 'reminder' offroadgeek. wink.gif

Anyway, after doing that, I ended getting the same error message. The reason for the error message is that LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not explicity defined (rather it's not defined at all) for user 'zaurus'. sad.gif

To fix, I had to create a shell script to export this variable and then execute the binary. I haven't dug much deeper to find out why my library path wouldn't be/isn't set. But will look more closely when I have some time. However, this work-around seems to fix the problem we're having. I suspect that the people not having any problems, have the library path set. My only change was modifying my 'zaurus' .profile (well there wasn't one initially) to export LC_ALL for Perl. So maybe by setting this (shouldn't matter) is somehow 'stomping' on default settings(?).

Here's my script I created:
**********
#!/bin/sh
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/QtPalmtop/lib
qtjournal
**********
Nothing fancy or elegant. I named it 'qtjournal.sh', under /home/QtPalmtop/bin (you can name it whatever you want, I just wanted to remember what this shell script was for). Ensure that it has proper execute permissions and that group ownership is 'qpe'.
For example:
******
# ls -la qtjour*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root qpe 196367 Aug 21 2003 qtjournal
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root qpe 63 Aug 16 20:33 qtjournal.sh
******
At this point, go into your tab manager under settings, hi-lite QtJournal, then click the edit button (it's the one with the pencil). The one you want to update is "Program". Just add ".sh" (dot sh) to the end of qtjournal (or whatever name you chose for your shell script). This tells it to run your shell script instead of the binary directly. So for example, if you named your shell script, "MyQtJournal.sh", then you'll need to replace qtjournal with MyQtJournal.sh.

After that, everything should be "right with the world". smile.gif

Hope that helps.

A little while ago I started using

qcop QPE/System 'restart()'

instead of doing a full rebooting on certain tasks. Each time that I did so, I found that certain programs (Abook for one example) would no longer launch from the icon. From konsole, I got the

"error while loading shared libraries: libqtopia.so.1 : cannot load objet file: No such file or directory "

error message.

Even though the library WAS obviously THERE. Path, sez I.

Today I compared "set" dumps from before & after restarting Qtopia via qcop.

The "before" has

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/hom/QtPalmtop/lib

and

RES_OPTION=insecure1

while the "after" does NOT.

The "after" has

PIPESTATUS=([0]="127")

while the "before" does NOT.


Obviously using qcop to restart Qtopia is NOT giving the same results as a full reboot. And may explain your problem.
