It used to work before.
odd, what version of Java do you have. You could try loading the program via command prompt by "java -jar C:/path/to/ipk-packager.jar" and see if an error gets outputted to the commandline when you press the "..." button.

I am running Java 6 Update 20.
There's Update 21 out, could that be the problem?

And I couldn't get the command to work, kept saying unable to access jarfile.

I've been wanting to add a dependency for the filemgr service for a while so I just tried out this ipk packager. When I create the package for my app with a dependency and try to install through Preware, I get this error:

Code:
-1: Unable to run command: /usr/bin/luna-send -n 6 luna://com.palm.appinstaller/installNoVerify '{"subscribe":true, "targer: "/media/internal/.developer/com.omastudios.pretext_0.1.1_all.ipk", "uncompressedSize": 0}' 2>&1
I've checked the control file for the app and it has the correct depends line in it:

Code:
Package: com.omastudios.pretext
Version: 0.1.1
Section: misc
Priority: optional
Architecture: all
Depends: ca.canucksoftware.filemgr
Maintainer: OMA Studios
Description: Pretext
Source:
Currently, people have to download filemgr separately from my app if they don't already have it installed, so I'd love to get this working properly but can't figure it out.

Are there any rules regarding cross-feed dependencies that I should know about? I'm currently doing all this from a private feed I've set up on my server and I've tried it with filemgr on my feed and the internalz feed with no luck.

Hi Jason, could this just as easily make an ipk to be downloaded from a website, then installed using preware or internals? Or do you have to use WOSQI to install it?

Ipk Packager follows standard ipkg format, with extended homebrew support.

It'll be fully installable/uninstallable with the Palm SDK's palm-install command, WOSQI, Internalz, and Preware.

EDIT: I'd also like to add that I've released an updated Ipk Packager with the Location field now present.

Hey Jason, one more quick question. I made a little website for my friends and uploaded a test .ipk However when I try to click on it, it just opens the .ipk like its a website and shows all the code for the app in the browser. it doesnt download or evan prompt internals or preware to handle it :-(

So my question is, do you know away around this? I tried to put in the link with ftp settings, (ftp://) but preware or internals dont have a way to put in a user name and password so it comes back access denied all the time. if I go (http://) it opens it as a web page???

anyway I just thought i'd ask because your one of the most informed WebOS users around.

Thanks :-)

hmm, not sure. Sounds like a server mimetype issue. Though for webos, make sure the ".ipk" file extension is there.



Also, new release is out

v1.5 - January 3, 2011
- Re-added Source field for json
- Added MinWebOSVersion and MaxWebOSVersion json fields
- Added custom support for pmPostInstall and pmPreRemove scripts

Hi Jason,
Just wondering if you'll eventually create a packager for hybrid apps. I'm starting to get my feet wet with hybrid apps, and just trying to package them and run them on the Pre is learning curve.

Trying to run IPK Packager program on Ubuntu 10.10. Double click on "Ipk Packager.jar" file yields read only file-folder. Right click on "Ipk Packager.jar" and select "Open with JDK Java 6 Runtime" yields:

"The file '/home/kgun/Desktop/Ipk Packager.jar' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit."

Experiencing the exact same issue when trying to launch "WebOSQuickinstall-4.04.jar".
All of this is in an attempt to install flash on VZW Pre Plus, post 2.1 meta-doctor, following webosinternals.org, and Mr. Robitaille's "Flash on Legacy Devices" forum post.
Some sort of java issue? I'm not great with these things. Any assistance appreciated.

EDIT: Ok, i am seeing on a treocentral forum that I may need SunJava instead of OpenJava, will give that a try.

By default Ubuntu now marks jar files as non-executable.

Do Right-click, Properties, Permissions. Where it says Owner, next to it, check the Execute box and Close.

I would like to use this "IPK Packager" program to package up a .patch file and then use "Ipkg Feed generator" to create a feed for me to apply this patch using preware. I can't seem to create the ipk from a .patch. Is there a post/wiki/instructions somewhere on how to do this step by step?

hey Jason/anyone
Help please

I have a game installed on my pre- that I rarely use. I'm not sure how I bought it since I didnt get charged, but whenever I doctor, it downloads, so my palm profile has it stored.

I want to save the file for future install if necessary, and thus take the game off my phone.

I was told that I can use ipk packager to extract the contents of the media/cryptos/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.gameloft..... directory and bundle them into an ipk file that I can use to install later.
I found this post, but I dont see any instructions.

Would you be kind enough to guide me as to how I can do what I am trying to do?
WHen you run this, does the phone have to be connected via usb? Or do you run this on the phone? (doubtful since it's a jar file).

I thank

What I did was to copy the whole directory structure off my Touchpad (via USB) onto my PC. Then used the IPK packager to package it up. Seemed to work OK.
