I got busy with RL things, the developper (zautrix) for the app I was helping on (kdepim suite) disappeared from the face of the earth (althought he's now posted a new kdepimpi a week ago apparently), and I realized gcalendar works from everywhere.
I'll buy an iphone 2.0 or something, because it works for the intended purpose.

greetings to your moms.

If you cant buy the games let alone the system, it's fine by me.
Practicing and encouraging piracy is *not* something OESF will condone, so watch your step, Aardvark.
If you want to make public the fact that you do not want to pay for games on current systems, noone's stopping you, but OESF will not be the platform for it.

Edit your posts, or I will.

do you have pics inlined in your contacts? My S/E phone doesn't like those at all (2 megs of user ram, ugh).
Otherwise, export a trimmed list to your Z's filesystem and use the beam command to send it over.
No 100% solutions, but us know, ok?

- Don't bother with the standard ROM, or PIM apps. As an extension of that, I wish I'd have been aware of just how shitty they were before I bought the Z.

QUOTE(gdog @ Nov 29 2005, 03:07 PM)
Hmmm. I do have the pim apps running from flash, but I also have them configured to save to my CF card. And unless I'm mistaken, the automatic backups are saving the data to the std.vcf file. Where that file is should not be an issue, or so I would assume. But then, what I know about these Apps and what I assume may just be at opposite ends of reality.
The advantage of setting auto backups on your CF card is that you have 2 places to wipe before you start losing data.

QUOTE(Papadon @ Nov 6 2005, 06:54 AM)
With, or without the alarm applet installed...if I create an appointment/to do with an alarm set and then go to check the entry, it's flagged with the alarm correctly. EX. "30 Minutes Before". However, if I exit the program (with saving first), and go back into KO/PI, and check the entry the alarm says "!30(Disabled) Minutes Before". The alarms will not work at this point. I've tested everything! If I create the apts. in KO/PI on the Zaurus without exiting, it's OK. But if I sync from my Windows machine, which I usually do because of convenience, it comes across with the "(disabled)" stuff. This is happening in EVERY VERSION, with/without the alarm applet installed. Has anyone seen this and does anyone know the solution?

The big problem is that we don't have a 3100 to test on. I honestly have no idea what could be the problem. What do you use on your wintel machine? Kdepim as well?

QUOTE(maystorm @ Nov 21 2005, 07:14 AM)
Sorry in advance for my newbie question...

I bought my CL3000 from Trisoft and it got Version 2.0.14 pre-installed. What would be the correct procedure for updating to the latest version? Would I just need to install the new *.ipk via the package manager ("Add/Remove software") and it'll replace all the old files with the the ones? Do I need to make a backup of my data files first?

Always make a backup (preferably to a card or over the network).
Always uninstall the previous version using your package manager.

QUOTE(maystorm)
Anything else I must observe? Additional dependicies?
Sorry, but I'm relatively new to the Zaurus world and how software is installed (and especially updated!) here...

No.
Don't be sorry, keep learning smile.gif

QUOTE(gdog @ Nov 25 2005, 11:46 AM)
I inadvertently (aka stupidly), deleted my kabc directory from my CF card.
*

I'd run kdepim from the flash and backup automatically to your card (that's what the auto backup function is for). Configure it in the global options.

QUOTE(gdog)
Then when trying to import both the xml and csv exports I had previously created as backups, the process would recreate my categories, but even with No Filters selected I could not actually see any of my 300+ contacts.

That sucks.

QUOTE(gdog)
So I found an old copy of the std.vcf file and put it into place in the kabc/apps/kabc directory. This gave me a starting point, but in further attempts to import the backups it seemed to bring in all but a few entries, most of which were in one category.

That's weird. I've never used the xml/csv exports, so I don't know what's wrong.

QUOTE(gdog)
I believe that I've learned the std.vcf file is the "right" way to save a backup copy (so long as you're not intending to import the data into a different PIM). But does anyone have any idea why the xml and/or csv file would not import properly?

The correct way is to export all as a vcard manually, or use the automatic backups.

QUOTE(gdog)
One further thing to note is that I had recently upgraded from 2.0.14 to 2.2.5, and the backups were created with the earlier version. Was there a change to the internal structure of the core app that would make the later version unable to read some of the data in the backup files that were created with an earlier version?

The change in data structure happened in 2.2.6, so no.

Yes, it's an actual sync, though not a very sophisticated one (can't deal with multiple changes on a single item without data loss). You can sync to a remote FS using something an SSH pipe, for example, and do anything to the remote file from there to get the info into your groupware app.

The groupware of choice for KDE seems to be kolab, but it's a massive package, it's quite buggy, and when Matt Douhan implemented PDA for one project, he used TS'ed outlooks and Activesync with Windows Mobile PDA's

The major problem the Z's have is that they have no permanent over-the-air capability without getting dirty (CF cards stickingout, etc).

Maybe you can try with a 6000 (the only one with built-in 802.11) but you'd need to trigger the sync from the device because the radio will gun down your battery in just over an hour.

Also, KdePim/PI is not integrated with the distro's connection managers, so you'll have to turn it on manually or write a script.

Good luck trying to sync with all 3 platforms, let us know if you achieve anything interesting.

What is the easiest way to do this, considering, that
- I do not sync my Palm with Outlook ( I use the Palm desktop)
- I have only Windows PC's easily accessible.

Try just beaming everything from the palm to your zaurus.
From there you can just import the received files into pimpi.

When syncing between multiple (old) packages, there's a decent chance your data is going to get mangled somewhere.

I have switched to pdaXrom, and I have noticed that we don't get regulary releases for pdaXrom.
Or am I just not looking in the right place?

Windows and PDAX versions are not released because Z test on Linux and I do on Cacko, which takes standard Sharp rom binaries.
If I want a particular version for Windows I usually just ask with positive results. Z is in the US right now, so you might get answers as quickly as usual.
But yes, I'd be a good thing to see all version compiled for all targets as a rule.

You can most likely cancel the charges on your visa if SP hasn't delivered the goods. Cancel the order, then cancel the charge. Then order from a decent retailer.

There are two things that puzzle me about this device, one software and the other hardware. On the software side why did Nokia avoid QT, especially since Trolltech is also a Norwegian company.  Could it have been cost issues, or being that this is a multimedia device were there performance issues with QT.

QT is FOSS, Qtopia isn't.
Making your devices dependent on someone else's software isn't really the smartest strategy. Ask IBM.
