Qtopia-addressbook_1.23_arm.ipk
« on: July 31, 2006, 08:23:04 pm »
Hi,

I would like to run an address book manager which uses the sharp format (I'm sure the K stuff is nice but no way am I synchronising twice when I do it several times a day!)

Meanie suggests qtopia-addressbook_1.23_arm.ipk as a good replacement however it won't run on my 3200.  I installed it from the command line - no errors.

I rebooted and then tried to run it - it tries to start but does nothing - I run it from the command line and it tries to start but does nothing (no errors in command line, nothing at all).  I checked but it reports no dependancies.

Am I missing something - has anyone out there got this working?

Thanks

Stephen

Had the same problem on my c3200 (terrier).  One thing I did notice was that it re-used the same icon as the existing sharp address book.  When I uninstalled it, the icon returned to loading the sharp address book.  

I'm guessing that the old address book will need to be removed before qtopia-addressbook_1.23_arm.ipk can be installed. I believe a package exists to create the sharp address book package which can then be installed and uninstalled prior to installing qtopia-addressbook_1.23_arm.ipk.  

I haven't tried any of this.  Just a guess as to the cause of the problem.

Anyone else out there got a 3200 - there must be more than two of us!

Is there another replacement address book option that uses the sharp format?

Thanks

I installed KO/PA in the end.  Appears to be a very capable address book.

Hi,

Absolutely - I've checked all that suite out and they look good.

Unfortunately they don't sync directly with outlook so they are pretty much useless to me.  I use outlook on my work PC and I have to sync the address book (and other) information with my Zaurus.  I am aware that I can run intellisync to the zaurus then another sync to KO/PA but that sounds like a pain the ass.

Has anyone found an automatic way to do the second sync on the first one?

Thanks for letting me know anyway.

Anyone else got a 3200 and need outlook sync?
