Software / Converting Back To The Sharp Addressbook
« on: January 12, 2005, 07:26:24 pm »
Can't you sync the xml data with the DTM? TKC apps only do import?

I just about have the conversion done.  I ended up writing something in Python to do it.

Thanks for the help though.


Software / Converting Back To The Sharp Addressbook
« on: January 12, 2005, 03:21:01 pm »
Since I first got a Zaurus -- 5500 I have used the TKC Addressbook.  (I have a 760 now) For various reasons I find myself thinking about switching back to the Sharp Addressbook.  The problem now is that the Applications now use two separate files to store their data.  One is dtm and the other is XML..

Does anyone know any easy what to convert the data for the TKC Addressbook into DTM?  Note that the Calendar will be my next problem.

Sharp ROMs / Installing The New Cacko Rom

What are people doing about backup and restoring their data around installing the new ROM?  All I really care about is my contacts, my calendar and my data in the notes section of the text editor?  I am happy to reinstall my applications.

Last time I saved it manually.  I just wondering what others are doing?

C1000/3x00 General discussions / Cacko on the C3000
« on: November 18, 2004, 01:07:53 pm »
I am not sure that Maslovsky committed to buying a C3000 if we raised the money... did he?

Personally, I sent him 50 bucks a few days ago for his great work on the upcoming Mplayer and the new Cacko ROM.  I encourage you to support him, but unless you get a firm commitment from him to buy a c3000, I think you are better off raising the money yourself and shipping him a C3000.

my 2 cents,


C1000/3x00 General discussions / English conversion?
« on: November 16, 2004, 05:13:54 pm »
and change to
Language = en_US
then from the terminal,

OK, this part went OK....rebooted and got English....

run the command
qcop 'QPE/System' 'language(QString)' 'en_US'

Just tried this part but got error message:

"Qt/Embedded data directory is not owned by user 0"

I did start all of this by typing "su" first....

Any suggestions??



I think you need to su - root in order to execute that command... it's possible you can just 'sudo ' in front of the command.

Sharp ROMs / What would you like to see in Cacko 1.22 ROM?
« on: September 16, 2004, 07:24:38 am »
The only problem I have is writing to my 1GIG sd (msdos format) card.  Large writes like MP3 files cause the file system to go "read only".

I am happy to see the Cacko ROM continue.

My experience doesn\'t fit neatly into your poll.  I have been running ext2 on my 512 SD card for about a year.  For the most part it works fine.  Once in awhile, generally after doing a lot of file copying -- ie untaring a build, the file system gets corrupted and I have to run e2fsck to fix it.

I\'m wondering if another file system would work better.

Accessories / SD microdrive when?

I think your Zaurus will be long dead by the time anyone ships a SD sized hard drive.  You should make other plans.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / pda-ish applications?
« on: May 12, 2004, 12:38:25 pm »
I am considering trying the pdaXrom and I want to prepare by starting to use applications on my desktop that I will be using on pdaXrom.  ie.  What applications do you use for a Calendar and an Addressbook?

It looks like WiFI is working, but not Bluetooth.  I may have to wait because i use bluetooth to connect to the internet from my cell phone.

Thanks for any information.

Sharp ROMs / cacko rom to pdaxrom... and back again???
« on: May 07, 2004, 01:53:11 pm »
Has anyone done this?  Is it straight forward?  I would like to try the pdaxrom, but I fear it won\'t yet standup to heavy daily use as a handheld.

Sharp ROMs / tkc for C760
« on: February 16, 2004, 05:35:26 pm »
I\'ve been away awhile and I would like to know the state of the tkcROM for the 760.  Also, is there a web page that documents the whole upgrade process?

ei backing up and restoring your data across the ROM upgrade as well as all the little details required to do this without messing up your device.
