Due to my Z crashing (file system went corrupt) I had an opportunity to reflash, and decided to try pdaXrom. I love it!

I am using RC11 on a 760.

A couple of newbie questions:

1. How do I set the time zone?

2. Is there a way to set the clock display to AM/PM format, instead of 24hr format?

3. Is it just me, or does right clicking (FN+tap) not work?

4. How do I cut and paste? (I think question 3 is the answer to my problem, but since I can't try it, I'm not sure.)

Thanks in advance for any help!

Great - remeber to change your signature :-)

1. Basically its posible but you need to do it by hand - what do you need it for?

2. Not at the momenet

3. Works fine on my 760 ;-) Try setting it and restart x

4. Correct :-) Right click will insert.

Thanks, yeah, I will fix my sig soon, too busy playing with the Z now though

1. Well, right now when I run "date" it tells me I am in UTC. If I use "ntpdate" to set my clock, it sets it to the correct UTC time. I would rather it show me my local time though at the prompt, on the screen, and in my calendar program. Is there something I don't understand here?

2. Ok, I know, we silly American's like to use AM/PM instead of 24hr time like most of you do, but it will be a nice feature sometime. I don't wear a watch because everything has the time (cell phone, pc, Z), but I'm not good at converting 22:00 into something meaningful to myself. I'll be patient though.

3. Cool that did it. Thanks. Sometimes it just takes being told that it really does work.

4. Oh, in aterm it is middle click to paste. =)

Thanks!

If you use xfce, you can change to "12hrs" and add "AM" or "PM"

I figured out the timezone thing:

ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Chicago /etc/localtime

I was just a bit confused by the fact that /etc/localtime didn't already exist.
