NeoCal for Qtopia Version 1.4.4-1

Released on August 7, 2002


The main distribution file, in .zip or .tgz format, contains this user guide in .pdf format and both the NeoCal application and user guide in .ipk format. The user guide .ipk file can be installed and removed independently of the application itself and is not required for use of the calculator. Due to current technical limitations, the user guide must be installed to RAM, not an expansion card.

To transfer the software to the Zaurus using Qtopia Desktop on the PC,

  1. Click on the Documents icon on the left side of the window.
  2. Choose the File -> Upload File menu option to upload the neocal-qtopia ipk file to the Zaurus. Optionally, upload the neocal-guide-qtopia ipk file to install the HTML user guide.

  1. Tap the Settings tab of the Qtopia home screen.
