    Do you have webOS Quick Install set up on your computer? If so let us know and I, or someone else, can help you.

    EDIT: Hey Shada, for some reason your responses weren't showing when I posted. Ummm, nevermind. :blush:

    I'd also like to know if there's a way to copy .ipk files.

    I want to copy them from my Pre to my computer so I can have a backup of all the apps I have in case something goes wrong with my Pre.

    Please let me know.

    if you go to precentral with computer you can download the ipk to your computer and instead of loading to your phone just save the file on computer( go to homebrew apps whichever app you want and go to the bottom of page and look for the download here link and load it up to computer and save )

    if your not signed in it wont let you download anything. well those are now for sale apps thats probably why. i know i know they are free but they are in the catalog now and distribution is from palm now not homebrew.

    I'm still interested in copying my apps back to my computer. I have custom apps that aren't on the homebrew site...

    I've done this before and I can't for the life of me remember how I did it.

    If someone knows the unix terminal command to use I'm happy to do it that way. Thanks!

    There should be a way you could do it using the Internalz app, I would imagine.

    There is no way, unfortunately. You need to have the original .ipk installer.
    Is like you would try to build an RPM from already installed files on your box. You don't have a tarball and you don't know nothing about the package.

    Here it is the ipkg list of commands:
    Code:
    ipkg version 0.99.163
    usage: ipkg [options...] sub-command [arguments...]
    where sub-command is one of:
    
    Package Manipulation:
            update                  Update list of available packages
            upgrade                 Upgrade all installed packages to latest version
            install <pkg>           Download and install <pkg> (and dependencies)
            install <file.ipk>      Install package <file.ipk>
            configure [<pkg>]       Configure unpacked packages
            remove <pkg|regexp>     Remove package <pkg|packages following regexp>
            flag <flag> <pkg> ...   Flag package(s) <pkg>
            <flag>=hold|noprune|user|ok|installed|unpacked (one per invocation)
    
    Informational Commands:
            list                    List available packages and descriptions
            list_installed          List all and only the installed packages and description
            files <pkg>             List all files belonging to <pkg>
            search <file|regexp>    Search for a package providing <file>
            info [pkg|regexp]       Display all info for <pkg>
            status [pkg|regexp]     Display all status for <pkg>
            download <pkg>          Download <pkg> to current directory.
            compare_versions <v1> <op> <v2>
                                    compare versions using <= < > >= = << >>
            print_architecture      prints the architecture.
            print_installation_architecture
            whatdepends [-A] [pkgname|pat]+
            whatdependsrec [-A] [pkgname|pat]+
            whatprovides [-A] [pkgname|pat]+
            whatconflicts [-A] [pkgname|pat]+
            whatreplaces [-A] [pkgname|pat]+
                                    prints the installation architecture.
    
    Options:
            -A                      Query all packages with whatdepends, whatprovides, whatreplaces, whatconflicts
            -V <level>              Set verbosity level to <level>. If no value is
            --verbosity <level>     provided increase verbosity by one. Verbosity levels:
                                    0 errors only
                                    1 normal messages (default)
                                    2 informative messages
                                    3 debug output
            -f <conf_file>          Use <conf_file> as the ipkg configuration file
            -conf <conf_file>       Default configuration file location
                                    is /etc/ipkg.conf
            -d <dest_name>          Use <dest_name> as the the root directory for
            -dest <dest_name>       package installation, removal, upgrading.
                                    <dest_name> should be a defined dest name from
                                    the configuration file, (but can also be a
                                    directory name in a pinch).
            -o <offline_root>       Use <offline_root> as the root directory for
            -offline <offline_root> offline installation of packages.
            -verbose_wget           more wget messages
            Force Options (use when ipkg is too smart for its own good):
            -force-depends          Make dependency checks warnings instead of errors
                                    Install/remove package in spite of failed dependences
            -force-defaults         Use default options for questions asked by ipkg.
                                    (no prompts). Note that this will not prevent
                                    package installation scripts from prompting.
            -force-reinstall        Allow ipkg to reinstall a package.
            -force-overwrite        Allow ipkg to overwrite files from another package during an install.
            -force-downgrade        Allow ipkg to downgrade packages.
            -force_space            Install even if there does not seem to be enough space.
            -noaction               No action -- test only
            -nodeps                 Do not follow dependences
            -force-removal-of-dependent-packages
            -recursive              Allow ipkg to remove package and all that depend on it.
            -test                   No action -- test only
            -t                      Specify tmp-dir.
            --tmp-dir               Specify tmp-dir.
    
            regexp could be something like 'pkgname*' '*file*' or similar
            eg: ipkg info 'libstd*'  or ipkg search '*libop*' or ipkg remove 'libncur*'
