Thumbs down kontact, kpilot, sony clie


i am trying to figure out how to configure my sony clie sj-22 with my mandrake linux 10.1 community laptop.

i have found that i should use kpilot with kontact, but unsure how to set these up together. through the console i have found that kpilot is install on my computer, or at least some kpilot files are. in the directory /usr/include/kpilot i found 8 *.h files. i do not know if there are more files or what to do. should i download and compile the newest version of kpilot?

i cannot run kpilot or find any reference to it anywhere else on my computer.


what should i do? if you have any resources or tips that could help me along the way they would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance for your help.

You will need kpilot (the version on your CDs should be sufficient). Make sure it is installed. Go to the Mandrake Control Center/Software Management window (rpmdrake), click on the "install" button, and search for kpilot.

You also need pilot-link, version 0.11.8. That should also be on your installation CDs.

When everything is installed, kpilot should be in your menues. IIRC, it is kind of hidden; somewhere under office applications.

If all else fails, try running "kpilot" from the command line. I believe it lives under /usr/bin, when properly installed. (I am at work, and unable to check right now.)

I could not install the version off my CDs because it asks for CD4 for the install. I do not have CD4 and was only used three to install my system. ??

Therefore, I downloaded the tarball from the kpilot site and have been trying to work with the configure for some time. I had a great deal of problem with qt checking because the install was looking for qt 3.3 and I had 3.2. I read a great deal about people's problem's similar to mine, but thought the configure was looking in the wrong place. This was my own stupid error.

Now I run into the following error message when trying to configure.

checking for makekdewidgets... not found
configure: error: The important program makekdewidgets was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

I have done many searches on the google and cannot find any resources for this problem.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Follow the link in my sig to EasyUrpmi, and set up your repository mirrors. Us the 10.1 *Official* sources, not 10.1 Community. Set up "main", "updates", "contrib", and "plf" both free and non-free. Then go back to rpmdrake (the software installation gui) and try again. (You will probably have to "uncheck" your CDs from the Media Management panel, first.)
