How to find out why a program doesn't start in Opie/QPE
Ever wonder why a program doesn't start in Opie/QPE? Heres how to find out what the error is:
I will use gaim as an example in this case.
1. Start the terminal or konsole
2. type cd /home/!QtPalmtop/bin/
3. do an ls to make sure that game is in there:

gaim is there so now we type "gaim" and see what the error is.
gaim: No such file or directory
- Actually you might need to type ./gaim as /opt/!QtPalmtop/bin is often not in the PATH. The No such file or directory could be caused by this too. - lardman
Ah! there's my problem. My SD card isn't mounted.
Now your error message will most likely be differnt. I did this on the OZ rom so the path might not be the same on the Sharp Rom. The reason it gave me that error is becouse the SD card had for some reason became unmounted.
