See the Palm applications section.


pdb2jpg(http://unixbigots.mommie.org/files/) is a simple script to convert the PDB files created by Sony Clie Palm PDAs that have a camera.

Tips and Tricks

You can access the memory stick on the Clie by hitting the "MS Import" icon on the Clie, when it is in the cradle and then typing in modprobe usb-storage and then mounting the VFAT filesystem (it will be assigned to device /dev/sda1 if you have no other SCSI devices on your system).
