I also have luck with Jpilot, that is what is so confusing. I want to use
the Kapps, Jpilot is fine, it is kind of a workhorse, sort of like Palm
Desktop in Windows, ugly but functional. I want the  advanced functionality
of the KApps. There has got to be someone on this list who understands the

Will resolve the issue.
I have no idea how to get this version or install it. Is there anyone who
can help? Sorry, I am so new to Linux that I still am not up on alternative
repositories or installing such software. Is there a simple command(s) I can
use in the terminal to get the codeyard version and install it?
