    I've been trying to search for this problem rather than make a new post, but so far I've been unsuccessful.

    Here's the problem: I have a Pre 2 (Verizon) to franken with my current Sprint Pre-. The hardware swap is not going to be a problem - I can do that.

    My concern is the Meta-doctor. I have followed the Wiki instructions up to the point of modifying my Palm Profile. But before I did that, I decided to connect my current Pre- to computer just to make sure that they are recognizing each other.

    Connected via USB, and the phone started charging, but I have no indication of it connecting to Ubuntu. I am an absolute newb to Linux - about 24 hours. I was able to figure out how to get novacom, metadoctor, and palm sdk on, but I have no idea to test to see if they're working. I also don't know how to find them on my computer!

    When I do a search I find everything installed over on the Windows partition, but I don't know if I've done it right on Ubuntu. Are there any videos to show me how?

    Thanks -

    I think where I'm stuck is in downloading the Palm SDK - the Palm website says:

    *********************************
    Installing the SDK on Ubuntu Linux

    A note about PDK development on Linux: The current SDK for Linux includes headers and libraries needed to do PDK development for the device and for the emulator. It also includes an arm-gcc toolchain for compiling applications for the device. If you are running a 32-bit i686 Linux desktop, you should be able to use the standard g++ compiler. (On x64 Linux, the native desktop toolchain will generate x64 code, which will not work in the emulator.)
    Update the Package Repository Information

    Update the Package Repository Information to /etc/apt/sources.list:

    If you are using 10.04 (Lucid Lynx):

    deb Index of /virtualbox/debian/ lucid non-free

    If you are installing on 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope):

    deb Index of /virtualbox/debian/ jaunty non-free

    Download and register the OracleŽ public key for apt-secure:

    wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu...racle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -

    Refresh the package index files:

    sudo apt-get update

    *******************
    I'm not sure what to do here - when I try entering these commands into the Terminal, I get:

    No command 'deb' found, did you mean:
    Command 'debc' from package 'devscripts' (main)
    Command 'derb' from package 'libicu-dev' (main)
    Command 'dab' from package 'bsdgames' (universe)
    Command 'debi' from package 'devscripts' (main)
    Command 'xdeb' from package 'xdeb' (universe)
    deb: command not found


    Any ideas? I'm at the root directory in Linux, as far as I know.

    This is not a command to type into the terminal. This is a line to add to the sources.list file. Open /etc/apt/sources.list - you'll see lines like this: deb something something - just add deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian lucid non-free (if you're on 10.04).

    First how did you install ubuntu? dual boot? I dual booted and didnt even need to install the sdk the guide says you dont all you need is novacom. And the metadoctor should be installed in the linux partition I believe or ubuntu dosent allow shell scripts to run that arent in its environment make sure you have atleast 10 gigs of free space on the ubuntu partition.

    Ubuntu is on dual boot. What I don't know is how to bring up any programs. When I connect my Pre to my computer via USB, there is no indication that there is any connection.

    How do I open WebOS Doctor?

    Thanks -

    Okay - how to I access the /etc/apt/sources.list? Is it through the terminal, or can I find it through the desktop?

    When I do a search, I only find to Etc folders, and neither of them have apt/sources
