    First run Automator. Then add "Run shell script" action.

    Enter the following into the box where it has the default "cat" command:
    Code:
    /opt/PalmSDK/0.1/bin/palm-install -d usb "$*"
    Thats basically it for a Finder plugin. Go to the File menu, Save as Plugin, Write up a description. I used "Install to Palm Pre"

    Then just control-click or right mouse click your .ipk files and select the automator plugin to install them. It should also work if you select more than one file.

    Thanks for this. I have never used automator but I will now.
    Batch install with this script does not seem to work.

    Any ideas?
    This happened to me once. Just reinstall the SDK and it should work fine.

    When I close the sdk (because it was open last night) it tells me the device is not found. Any ideas?
    I think it changed the default location to the Emulator try:

    Code:
    palm-install -d usb
    Then drag and drop the app. The "-d usb" just tell the terminal to use the USB device rather than the TCP (emulator)

    I had the same issue. Open up Terminal and enter:
    palm-install -d usb -l

    You should then get a list of apps on your pre.
    then enter:
    palm-install ~/projects/packages/com.example.app_1.0_all.ipk

    Let me know how it goes

    Didnt help. After reinstalling I tried 'palm-install' with the emulator both open and closed and got the same result I posted above.

    I never had any novacom software install when I did mine either, I think that is a windows thing. Try typing "novaterm" without the quotes into the terminal while your Pre is attached with the Emulator closed. It should log you into your Pre as root. Just see if it does that to see if you can even get into your Pre. If not you may have other issues. Let me know what happens and I'll see if I can troubleshoot from there.

    Well the fact that the list of apps came up tells me you have the SDK installed correctly and it is seeing your Pre, it is just odd that installing an app isn't working. Try doing what I said above with novaterm to see if you can even get into your Pre.

    Hmm... I really don't know what to tell you. I had this issue and all I did was reinstall the SDK. Take my Pre out of dev mode and put it back into it and it worked. I think it may have just been some sort of bug.

    I have written up a FULL guide on how to install app on the Pre using Mac at the following link: Palm Pre Forum - How to install Homebrew apps on your Pre. (without rooting). Check that out just to be clear. This write up was just a rough draft I did as I referenced the windows method. The method at that link is specifically for Mac.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Related question:
    Can this palm-install/automator method be used to transfer files without having to put the pre into "USB" mode
  12. #32  
    Ok, how do you go about root access with a Mac, I've done it with my PC, but not sure how to do it with the Pre... For example, getting to the "Rootcastle" command

    With the PC I know you do the Noavacom, and then Putty, but not sure what to do with the Mac.... Thanks.
    Remember, this is my opinion ! We all have a right to our own.....

    Treo's 650-800..NOW,
    Palm Pre
  13. #33  
    Simple. Plug in your Pre open terminal. Type Novaterm. You're in! Of course your Pre needs to be in dev mode and you need to have the SDK installed.

    Yes, I am a total noob. Just followed the instructions and received
    connection refused
    tried to do sudo palm-install and also got connection refused.

    Any ideas? I really appreciate the help.
    Thanks

    Oh, also tried to type novaterm in the terminal (correct?) and no go.

    I am also a total noob.

    I am getting a prompt for a password when I type sudo palm-install.... but I cant figure out which password it needs.

    Is it for my palm profile?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    OK, I finally figured it out. Maybe I just needed tiny, baby steps. For anyone else who might, this is what I had to do:
    I installed vbox
    I installed Mac SDK- it never told me the destination on my mac
    Since I kept getting connection refused or not found, and novaterm did nothing in terminal I searched for novacom on my mac. Also when i tried to open the emulator, it said that novacom was not running.
    Found a novacomd terminal and double clicked it. This seemed to allow the emulator to run, but couldn't open new terminal to use palm commands.
    Closed novacomd, opened terminal, opened novacomd and viola! palm commands ran, my device was connected! Yipee!

    Seems like a pain in the arse to do everytime, but I am loving these homebrew apps!
    Thanks to all you for your hard work!

    Sorry if this is a "NO DUH" post, but I guess I need the basics.

    That's what I used. It will let you know if it is the wrong password.

    I had the exact same problem... but now when I want to install a app I have to open

    Code:
    /opt/nova/bin/novacmd
    then I have to open a new terminal window and I can use the palm-install, etc...

    Is there a way to get novacmd running at boot without having terminal running?
