Gnome Pilot Setup Wizard Won't Go Away

  Date: Dec 06    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 476

On a lark, I tried to synch my wife's Palm Pilot Tungsten E2 on Ubuntu Jaunty
Jackelope. I could not get it to synch, but that is not a problem as she synchs
with Vista on her laptop. The issue is that I now have two instances of gnome
pilot setup wizard that appear whenever I boot up.

Googling, I found another user with the exact same problem. That user was able
to correct the problem by deleting a gnome pilot hidden file in the home
directory. I don't remember what the file name was and I cannot find the web
page again. In my home directory, I found and deleted an empty folder named
.gpilotd, and a 4-byte text file .gpilotd.pid, but that did not fix the problem.

Can anyone suggest how to make these two wizard instances go away?

From a terminal type top and see what pid seems to relate to the palmpilot.
The other thing to check is services, to make sure some auto dohickey is not
running and still trying to find the palm. I'm in kde atm and assume that you
are running gnome since you said ubuntu, check that nothing is in your startup
folder that might be autostarting.

Per your instructions, I found the pid and killed it. After
rebooting, the annoying wizard was gone.
