*Requires free download and install of "Plucker" offline Web and e-book viewer for PalmOS®. You can download latest version from: http://www.plkr.org . Choose the appropriate Plucker Viewer for your handheld. The optional distiller components are not required to view PocketGardener.
(This in no way serves as an endorsement of the plucker software over other products. It works well, and is free.)



STEP 2- Install the software

PocketPC INSTALLATION - You are downloading a compressed ZIP file.  When you run this file, the operating system will extract all necessary files. I suggest using the My Documents folder for the extraction destination.  To start using the program, click on File Open in your browser's Menu Bar. Then browse to Index in the PocketGardener folder. (See Below)

IMPORTANT: If you like, you can now copy the PocketGardener folder to your handheld. Remember, PocketGardener is not a program, it is simply a collection of html files. So, it installs and uninstalls very easily.  Feel free to create any folder you want on your handheld (Yes, you can also put this on a removable memory card).  Copy the contents of the PocketGardener folder to the handheld folder you created.  That's it!  To run PocketGardener, just launch index.html out of your new folder.

To uninstall, simply delete the folder containing the PocketGardener files on your handheld.


PALM INSTALLATION - You are downloading a self-extracting compressed file.  When executed, this file will extract ONE file to your computer - PocketGardener.pdb. You will need to add this to your PDA following your PDA's normal procedures for adding software. If you are downloading the TEXT version of PocketGardener, it may fit in your PDA's built-in memory. If you are downloading the FULL version of PocketGardener (includes photos), it is very likely you will need to install the PocketGardener files to the removable storage card in your PDA.

Plucker Viewer - This is the application you actually install on your Palm handheld device (the .prc file ). It is the interface you'll be using to view PocketGardener content.

To uninstall, simply delete the PocketGardener.pdb file from your handheld.

 

Enjoy!
