Hey, I'm running Cacko 1.23 with a C1000 and just bought a Fellowes Stowaway USB Keyboard.  I read in Meanie's book that one could write a script to automatically map the keys correctly when the USB keyboard is plugged in and then switch it back to the default when it isn't. 

I'm pretty new to the Zaurus, can anyone just copy me their script and tell me where I need to key it in?

It would be much appreciated!

Hmm, let me put my question another way...

I get that Keyhelper is supposed to allow me to get the USB keyboard's keys mapped correctly. But, for example, it won't let me key in "?" either on the Zaurus's built-in keyboard or the usb keyboard. In fact, when I type the ? key on the USB keyboard, nothing happens. So, how do I get this keyboard working correctly?

If it helps you decide, as far as I know, C1000 will not work with SD cards greater than 1GB.


QUOTE(x86Daddy @ May 8 2006, 02:24 PM)
I'm considering an upgrade to one of the SL-Cxxx units from my SL-5500.  I've been using a 256MB SD card as my "Hard Drive," and I could happily continue a similar tradition.

So, what I'm trying to decide between is this:

An SL-C1000 with a 4GB high-speed SD card almost always installed as the "Hard Drive."  (here's such a card: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetai...tCode=82502-19)

--or--

An SL-C3x00

What I've ID'ed as pro's and cons already are:
-SL-C1000 + 4GB card is still about $100 US lower than a SL-C3200
-SL-C3200 has 2 more GB
-I lose/use my SL-C1000 SD port, and use the power supplied to it full time

What I have little clue about though, is the following:
Does the SL-C1000 + SD card route end up with lower energy consumption?
Does the SL-C1000 + SD card route end up with higher speed?

If yes to both, I really think I'd prefer that path, despite it not being "the best" I can get right now.  Does anyone have other factors they can think of that I should include in my evaluation?

And here's a crazy idea, that seems a bit more readily useable than the current efforts to solder in USB accessories:
Is it possible to treat a SL-C3200 like a SL-C1000 by removing the microdrive, and if so, could I then use the other slot for misc peripherals like a Bluetooth card?  I could possibly splurge for something like that.

I'm in the U.S. looking to buy a Piel Frama case, any color but red. I just wanted to check the list to see if anyone was thinking about selling theirs before I bought new.

Let me know!

I just received my Akita from pricejapan two days ago. I did a lot of pricing, looking around, checking e-bay and settled on pricejapan. They have the lowest price for brand new product, and ship very, very fast. I had my order in five days, two of which were saturday and sunday.

You get the unopened retail box, proof of purchase (for warranty purposes), the driver CD (for usb connection to windows XP computer), some peace of mind of knowing the product is covered against defects for the next year, even though you have to pay for all shipping costs to and from pricejapan (I believe they will serve as your agent in the warranty process dealing with Sharp Japan). You also get a USB (not host) cable and EA-72 adapter that is very slick and compact and works fine in the U.S. The manuals are useless unless you know Japanese. I like the idea of being able to have and keep EVERYTHING that came in the box, including the box, to preserve resale value.

E-bay is too shady unless you either know the seller from these forums or they are able to satisfactorily answer all of your questions.

That being said, if you don't want to pay shipping costs for possible warranty services, go with one of the other vendors that offer that support. Some of the other vendors have staff tech people that can fix some problems for free without shipping it off to Japan.

For me, I try to take extremely good care of my electronics and have very rarely needed warranty support for something that I didn't screw up on my own. I don't think Sharp Japan is going to be very willing to go the extra mile for foreigners. In the end, you pays your money, you takes your chances.

Try Zeditor to edit .conf files.
You can find Zeditor at most of the feeds and ELSI (link at top of this page)
Click and hold the icon, then select Execute with root privilage

Ok. Zeditor is totally easy to use. Thanks! I edited the file, taking out all other card entries except for the WCF12, but I still have the same problem.


When I plug in the card, the light blinks for a second or two and then goes blank. The Z recognizes the card fine.

It can't be the card, because it was working in pdaXrom.

Any ideas?

Edit: Ok, I figured it out. I unchecked auto-connect and it fixed the problem. Thanks!

Ok, so here is my problem...

When I plug in the WCF12, I get a message "New Card: WCF12 Linksys blah blah"  The little Link light on the card blinks off and on for about two seconds, then goes completely blank. 

I then open up NetFront and it asks me if I want to connect.  I say yes.  Then I get a Connection Setup Error, "Cannot find the device card for communication."

I tested in the card in pdaXrom and it worked just fine.

How do I get it working in Cacko?

Any help is much appreciated!

Ok. I feel really bad asking this, but I've honestly tried doing searches of forums and google to figure this out on my own and come up with nothing. I even followed the instructions on using vi in the How-to and it didn't work. No one is answering in #cacko, so here goes...

I want to edit /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf. So, I fired up QKonsole. At the $ prompt I type:

CODE
$ su
# vi /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf


Then the file comes up. From there, when I delete something and then press shift+ to save, nothing really happens. I hit cancel. Nothing really happens. I close the window and open up QKonsole to see if the changes had any effect. Nope. Nothing changed.

What gives?

I also tried typing:

CODE
$ su
# login

zaurus login: root
Login incorrect


Huh?

I also tried editing the file in Midnight Commander. I find the file ok, but then I have no idea of how I'm supposed to actually edit the file from the program.

What am I doing wrong? I'm sorry if this post irritates anyone.

Many thanks in advance!

I think it would be interesting and informative to see a poll of how many people use which of the different ROMS that are available.

It might help newbies like me decide on one!

Is this something I can set up?

Thanks!

Ok, so I know in the olden days, you didn't want to charge batteries unless they were nearly depleted first. But apparently li-on batteries work differently... What is the best habit to get into with charging the Z to prolong battery life?

I anticipate using the Z for long stretches of time during the work day at my desk. Is it ok to leave the Z plugged in to AC power for 9 or 10 hours at a time during the workday?

OR

Is it better to completely charge the Z, unplug from AC power, and let it run on the battery until it is almost depleted, then plug it in, rinse, repeat?

Thanks!

Yep, I was referring to the very old Librettos. 6 year old hardware is too prone to failure and the data it would have on it is too important. I'm convinced that a C1000 is what I want. I'm currently eyeing pricejapan...

Thanks to all who replied!

Right, but by the time you lug a usb keyboard around, you might as well have brought your laptop. Right?

Anyone know anything about the seller, toolsorjewels? Seems to have ok ebay feedback. However, she/he won't respond to my questions about the item.

Here is the link:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Sharp-Zaurus-SL-C1000-...1QQcmdZViewItem

I'm also considering pricejapan, but it is kind of a hassle...

I'd love to spend $300 shipped, particularly because I anticipate spending another $100 on necessities, like wi-fi card, usb cable kit, case.

I'm just nervous about getting a used Z that doesn't retain a charge or has been bricked.

Another question:

The worst of it all is that Dell is selling cheap notebooks for $400. I want to use the Z as a very portable computer. Is it possible to get used to touch typing on the device such that you type on it just about as fast and accurately as you'd type on a standard-sized keyboard?

Opinions greatly appreciated!

I'd like to hear your opinions on whether a Cx000 is worth the extra cost and effort when one can purchase a Toshiba Libretto and run linux on it.

Librettos can be had on E-bay for well under $300.

C1000 can be had from Pricejapan.com for $340, then add the cost of an appropriate AC adapter, cf wi-fi card, and USB host cable and you are already well over $400.

Is the marginal size and hipness factor of the Cx000 really worth the extra cost?
