General Discussion / I Lost The Power Level Icon!
« on: July 04, 2006, 10:54:00 am »
Since a couple of days ago, my C860 (w/ Cacko 1.21) does not display anymore the icon showing the power level. I tried a soft reboot with no result.
Any idea?

Windows Issues / Synchronization (as Usual :-( )
« on: October 24, 2005, 11:42:32 am »
I am trying to set up the USB TCP/IP communication between my C860 (Cacko 1.21) and a PC with XP installed. I installed the NDIS v3 drivers on the PC, and the two machines see one another; on the Z PC link says "USB IP, connection USB -TCP/IP", and I can ping from the PC and from the Zaurus.

However, if I launch Intellisync it asks to connect the Zaurus, but it cannot start the connection, and it asks to change the IP on the Z to If I try to do it (of course after disconnecting) it wants, and so on.

I vaguely remember that there was a trivial thing to do, but I cannot rememeber which it is. Any suggestion?

ciao, .mau.

ps: the PC has no firewall on at the moment, of course.

Windows Issues / XP SP2 --> no connection
« on: November 02, 2004, 10:14:10 am »
I made the error to upgrade my PC to service pack 2. Now it seems that neither Zaurus File Transfer nor Qtopia Desktop work anymore. In the firewall setup I added Zaurus File Transfer and Zaurus Manager to the list of exceptions, and I even tried to shut the firewall, but  without any luck.
PC Link on the Z shows hostname zaurus, USB IP, connection USB/TCP-IP (advanced).
Firewall log contains some lines like these:

2004-11-02 16:02:42 OPEN TCP 1909 4243 - - - - - - - - -
2004-11-02 16:02:47 CLOSE TCP 1909 4243 - - - - - - - -
2004-11-02 16:02:49 OPEN TCP 1910 4243 - - - - - - - - -
2004-11-02 16:02:54 CLOSE TCP 1910 4243 - - - - - - - -

where is my own IP.

If I try to click Sync Start on PC Link, I see for a split second a window "now updating information" and then "communication was aborted".

Any idea?

Software / word wrap in Zeditor
« on: May 03, 2004, 11:15:47 am »
I noticed that if I set word wrap, wrapping is at character level, rather than at word boundary.
I think it\'s a byproduct of Japanese way of handling ideograms, but I would like to know if there is some way to have wrapping only at spaces!

Cxx0 Hardware / flaky SD card
« on: April 06, 2004, 10:14:58 am »
I just noticed that my 128Mb SD card (branded Nytech - I do not know which is the actual manifacturer) has some problem: sometimes it remounts readonly, other times it is not seen at all. I never used it before, this is why I
wasn\'t aware of it. Did anyone have the same behaviour?
I am running Cacko Daniela on a 860.
ciao, .mau.

Sharp ROMs / Retrieving fonts
« on: March 26, 2004, 09:27:54 am »
Besides Helvetica Italics fonts at
what should I download if I want to reinstall all fonts on a C860 w/ Cacko 1.20?

thanks, .mau.

Cxx0 General discussions / reloading fonts
« on: March 24, 2004, 06:28:56 am »
what is the best solution for reloading the system fonts on the Z w/ Cacko?

Sharp ROMs / corrupted fonts?
« on: March 23, 2004, 11:15:39 am »
I noticed that the screen saver which shows the date and time after a while of inactivity (and which I do not know it is set up, BTW) started showing strange images, like shaded triangles. At first I thought it was a nasty byproduct of launching old applications which do not know about the new resolution, but restarting Qtopia and doing nothing but opening Kconsole did nothing (I just rebooted the system to see what happens)
Is it just me? ciao, .mau.

Italy / la "base installata"
« on: March 23, 2004, 04:37:45 am »
Visto che qui in Italia gli Zaurus non li importano  :cry:, mi piacerebbe sapere che modello vi siete scelti e come mai...
ciao, .mau.

Software / sharp addressbook specs?
« on: March 22, 2004, 09:41:27 am »
I am trying to get rid of the Sharp addressbook. I managed to install opie-addressbook, but it does not read my data files in dtm format.
That would not be a problem, if I could manage to find the specs of DTM format. I did a search, and I found out that they were at ; does anybody have a copy of that file?

ciao, .mau.

Cxx0 General discussions / numlock on a C860!
« on: March 20, 2004, 01:47:16 pm »
I just noticed that there is the small N at the right of the taskbar, like I had hit the NumLock key. But I do not know of any suck key on the Series 700!
It does not seem to do much, but I would like to get rid of it. Which combination of keys should I hit?
cioa, .mau.

Windows Issues / 860/cacko: qtopia not synchronizing
« on: March 18, 2004, 06:32:18 am »
I managed to have USB-TCP/IP connection worling (I had to change the IP address to, and Zaurus File Transfer works like a charm.
But Qtopia Desktop (v1.7) still does not see Z. Its settings seem to be correct: USB,
Does anybody see the same problem?
ciao, .mau.

Cxx0 General discussions / function keys not working!
« on: March 17, 2004, 11:34:25 am »
I just noticed that all keys Calendar, Address, Mail and Home send F12, so
they are doing the same thing.
I disabled keyhelper and rebooted, but no result.
what could it be?
ciao, .mau.

Sharp ROMs / iso-8859-1 support
« on: March 17, 2004, 05:41:24 am »
I noticed that both text editor and ZEditor (at least on my C860 w/ cacko 1.20) save text files in UTF-8 (or Japanese encodings, which I do not use).
Do you know if it is possible to add ISO-8859-1 as a file encoding?

Cxx0 General discussions / using old applications on a C860
« on: March 16, 2004, 11:55:56 am »
these are in portrait mode, of course. Even if I cannot use the high resolution, I would like to rotate them, so that I can use the keyboard.
Unfortunately, it seems that qpe-rotation + qt-embedded-rotation do not do anything. What do you use?

ciao, .mau.
