    hi,

    Just picked up a 650 because of it's great support for my beloved linux (everything worked outta the box with Kubuntu, Kontakt and Kpilot! I have never come across anything so compatible with Linux before!!)

    My beef now is this: i just bought 3 apps online, installed them via Kpilot. The Treo created launcher icons for only 2 of them. The other one (English-Hebrew dictionary) did install, as it's listed in the list of things I can remove), but I have no way of starting it. Is there a way of creating shortcuts in PalmOS? How can I start it?

    The dictionary is probably a database, not an app; you'll need to launch the app for which it was intended. Where'd you get it?

    thanks for your response.

    I bought all 3 apps from mytreo.net. The 2 that worked were .prc. The "English to Hebrew Dictionary for Palm OS" is a .pdb file. Does that mean I need to fork out for a dictionary program and Hebrew support too? (I'm used to being a spoilt FOSS user...)

    As a rule, a pdb file is data for an app (prc). Going by your description, I wasn't able to find that download on MTDN, but if you review the page from which you downloaded it, it should indicate which dictionary app can use the data.

    Bill, you're a gentleman!

    I needed the Beiks dictionary reader. I'll get the hang of it, I am sure it can't be as confusing as my early forays into *nix...
