#title How to make your Nomad II work on Ubuntu

Ubuntu 7.04

Instructions for Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn

Steps

  1. Download nomadII-utils from: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/nomadii/nomadII-utils-0.8-2.i386.rpm

  2. You will need alien to convert the .rpm package into a .deb one

    sudo apt-get install alien
    sudo alien nomadII-utils-0.8-2.i386.rpm
  3. Install nomadII-utils:

    sudo dpkg -i nomadii-utils_0.8-3_i386.deb
  4. You must create a symbolic link in order to help nomadii-utils find the libreadline library:

    sudo ln -s /lib/libreadline.so.5 /lib/libreadline.so.4
  5. Nomadii-utils needs termcap compatibility. Download the following packages and place them in the same folder: termcap-compat libc5 ldso

  6. Install termcap-compat:

    sudo dpkg -i ldso_1.9.11-15_i386.deb 
    sudo dpkg -i libc5_5.4.46-15_i386.deb 
    sudo dpkg -i termcap-compat_1.2.3_i386.deb
  7. Connect your Nomad II device.
  8. Run nomadii-utils executable (not as root):

    nomadii
  9. Type help at the nomad prompt to get a list of useful commands.

Ubuntu 7.10

Instructions for Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon

usbfs is not activated by default in Gutsy. After the instructions above, follow these extra steps:

sudo nano -w /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh

Find the following lines:

     #mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs
    #domount usbfs "" /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644
    #ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices
    #mount --rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb

Uncomment them so that look like this:

    mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs
    domount usbfs "" /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644
    ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices
    mount --rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb

Press Ctrl+X to exit and save the changes.

Start mountdevsubfs:

sudo /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh start

Done. You can run nomadii now.
