You need to look for a comic book reader that runs on ARM processors. Your smartq v7 has an ARM processor. You tried installing a program intended for the x86 architecture. cbrPager is a good comic book reader for ARM. I use it on my N900.

I have a WinCE completely english version of MangaMeeya Comic Reader you can download. You can download it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/281610555/MMCE_July20.zip

To install it, just create a folder on your device and unzip the files to that folder (or unzip the files on your PC and then copy the files to that folder on your device).

I thought you were running linux

On another note, I'm seriously considering this device as a comic reader gift option.

I stand to be corrected (unless I'm paying for it ) but I reckon the Q7 handles comics pretty well. The V7 may be overkill if comics are your main priority.

Just a thought

I was actually running linux but I couldn't get any other device to work so when the option for Windows CE came and work I wasn't really that fussed anymore. If I find a linux one down the track that works fine then I'll use that but for now I'm really happy with MMCE. Also like previous comment if you just getting as a comic reader gift you can save some cash by just getting the standard Q7 but of course all up to you.

That does nothing on my smartq.

I guess a good working knowledge of Linux is a must for this devise.

you might want to look at ColdSuns help, I did it with this on the Linux and it works flawlessly, Im still using firmware on the q7 as I didnt like the taskbar in v 5.0

http://www.mobileread.mobi/forums/sh...ad.php?t=48655

but go down to post #19 theres a newer version which I use.

Thanks

I figured out that my repository listing isn't correct so I updated it with this



deb http://repository.handhelds.org/hasty-armv6el-vfp/ hasty main universe restricted multiverse
deb-src http://repository.handhelds.org/hasty-armv6el-vfp/ hasty main universe restricted multiverse
deb-src http://repository.handhelds.org/hasty-source/ hasty main universe restricted multiverse
deb-src http://repository.handhelds.org/ubuntu/ hardy main universe restricted multiverse


So I then ran the following command lines in evilvte and get these results

ran-> sudo apt-get install comix
Got-> Coundn't find pacakge comix

ran-> sudo apt-get install mirage
Got-> Coundn't find pacakge comix

So then I tried a different repository

deb http://ports.ubuntu.com jaunty main universe restricted multiverse


Any help?

Also is Hasty, Jaunty and Karmic Kola ubuntu release names?
If so does that mean I need to find a repository for Kola apps?

What ver of firmware are you running?
Hasty, Jaunty and Karmic are ubuntu release names, Karmic being the latest stable version.
