Re: [O] org and microsoft exchange

2011-06-20 Thread Holger Wenzel
Hi,

 I was thinking of trying to get org and microsoft exchange talking to
 each other via soap-client.el and exchange web services (ews).
 Ultimately it would be nice to have a route into the corporate world
 of exchange, outlook, entourage, and blackberry where so many of us
 are forced to live.

 My first goal is to link org TODOs to exchange tasks in some
 simplistic way that allows two-way syncing.

 If that proves feasible, perhaps calendar items could be next.

 Does this sound useful? If anyone with elisp or web services
 programming experience is interested in lending a hand, I am sure to
 need some help.

 +1.

 My institution is moving to MS Live, whatever that means (I really am
 completely ignorant of the MS world, for better or for worse).  I think
 this is somehow related to Exchange etc. so any type of integration with
 org would be greatly helpful for me!  At first, all I care about is one
 way transfer, from the MS world to org but obviously two way syncing
 would be good.

 In my case, it's more about calendar events than tasks.  My tasks are
 typically for my information only but meetings etc involve multiple
 people.

 I can try to help in due course.  We haven't moved to the MS system yet
 so I cannot yet say how much I will be able to contribute.  Keep me in
 the loop!


One open source project that implements a pretty impressive interface to
exchange is http://davmail.sourceforge.net 

Maybe you can get hints on how to deal with the ideosycrasies of MS
coding from there.

Unfortunately I cannot use this, and your proposed solution, since my
Exchange server is behind an RSA-Token-secured gateway.

I'm planning to use the org-outlook protocol 

http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/org-outlook.el

even if this means that I need to have an Outlook-instance running. 

Good luck!

Holger






[O] org-insert-link and partial-completion-mode incompatibility?

2011-06-22 Thread Holger Wenzel
Hi,

in emacs 23.3 with the org-mode release_7.5-421-ge734e I experience an
incompatibility between org-insert-link and partial-completion-mode.

org-insert-link in an org-mode buffer results in:
Symbol's definition is void: t

The trace back looks like

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-function t)
  t(-1)
  org-icompleting-read(Link:  ((http:) (https:) (ftp:) (mailto:;) 
(file:) (news:;) (shell:) (elisp:) (doi:) (message:) (file+sys:) 
(file+emacs:) (bbdb:) (bibtex:) (docview:) (gnus:) (info:) (irc:) 
(mew:) (mhe:) (rmail:) (vm:) (wl:)) nil nil nil tmphist nil)
  apply(org-icompleting-read (Link:  ((http:) (https:) (ftp:) 
(mailto:;) (file:) (news:;) (shell:) (elisp:) (doi:) (message:) 
(file+sys:) (file+emacs:) (bbdb:) (bibtex:) (docview:) (gnus:) 
(info:) (irc:) (mew:) (mhe:) (rmail:) (vm:) (wl:)) nil nil nil 
tmphist nil))
  org-completing-read(Link:  ((http:) (https:) (ftp:) (mailto:;)

(mew:) (mhe:) (rmail:) (vm:) (wl:)) nil nil nil tmphist nil)
  org-insert-link(nil)
  call-interactively(org-insert-link nil nil)


Deactivating partial-completion-mode let me insert the link with no
problems.

Then it looks like org-insert-link doesn't call org-completing-read at
all.

Using the org version that comes with emacs 23.3 doesn't exhibit this
behaviour. 

Kind regards,

Holger





Re: [O] MobileOrg app not available in the Belgian App Store?

2013-04-06 Thread Holger Wenzel
Hi Guido,
 
 I wanted to install the MobileOrg app on my iPhone, but iTunes claims
 that there is no such app in the Belgian App Store?!
 
 Did I miss something?

did you go to,

http://mobileorg.ncogni.to/

?

It looks like it's currently not available in the app store. At least in 
Germany I don't get it as well.

And with that OS running on the smartphone there is little chance to get the 
app installed through a different channel.

I wish I had my android back, unfortunately I work for an employer that 
constantly chooses mediocre tools.

Cheers,

Holger





[Orgmode] Re: [mobileorg] Android sync failed

2010-06-16 Thread Holger Wenzel
Hi Torsten,


 I just got my new android based phone (HTC Desire) and the very first thing
 I'm interesting in getting my org-based brainswap onto the android. I
 installed Mats mobileorg program for android (btw., I hate the word app,
 sorry ;) ) version 0.4 Alpha
 I followed the manuals and howtos, however, I can't get it to sync. I am
 aware that the url needs to contain the /index.org part.
 For first test I set-up a account on mydisk.se.

 I rewrote the password and login name several times. I noticed that a wrong
 passwort directly send me a sync failed whereas for the correct password
 it needs some seconds to come up with the same error message. Thus, I think
 the login into webdav works out correct. I can log-in via a direct webdav
 client on my android.  Thus. technically it should be ok.

 I tried several different org-files from very complex to just very simple
 (one link to another file, which contains a single header).
 I played around with the file permissions but without success.

 Is there any thing else I could check? How could I get more details on what
 actually failed. Is there a way to get more output via the usb debugging
 function?

 Any ideas are greetly welcome.

I use mydrive.ch,. I have the index.org file at the top-level directory
there and have on my android phone the URL in the Connectivity settings
http://webdav.mydrive.ch/index.org;

I remember having to fiddle a little until I got it working - but
nothing bad.

[Orgmode] Re: MobileOrg for Android...issues

2010-08-05 Thread Holger Wenzel
Hi C64Wiz,

 Also, I selected to store the .org files on my SD card.  Is there a
 way I can *manually* copy org files to the SD card (just need a
 location really) so that I can at least read/reference them? I don't
 have a need to edit/capture at this point, but would like to at least
 view them.

you can always set up your own webdav server. 

I briefly used nginx (nginx.org) a full blown web server, there is an
apache module for serving the webdav protocol and there is pywebdav 
http://code.google.com/p/pywebdav/

2010-08-05 Thread Holger Wenzel


 I do have my own WebDav server (Apache mod) but I'm a security guy so I
 only allow https.  Bad http, bad. :)

Even in your own private network? 

My setup was to have the webdav server only visible in my home wlan and
then sync the phone against that.

[Orgmode] Re: What WebDAV service do you use for syncing org files?

2010-10-21 Thread Holger Wenzel
Hi Jeff,

 Well, I just answered my own question as far as getting MobileOrg to
 work... I just set the WebDAV directory to a local directory within
 Dropbox. I thought it had to be WebDAV (like that would make a
 difference).

 I'm still interested to know what everyone uses to sync working files, though.


I've got my Android rooted and have a ssh server running there. 

Then I use the following hooks to run the scp command to copy the files
back and forth.
 
(setq org-mobile-post-push-hook  '(lambda ()

(shell-command 
scp ~/org/mobile/*.org magic_home:/sdcard/stage)

))
(setq org-mobile-pre-pull-hook 
'(lambda ()
 (shell-command scp 
magic_home:/sdcard/mobileorg/mobileorg.org /home/hw/org/mobile)
 )
)

So my org files never leave my network and all traffic is encrypted. 

There is an ftp-server available for Android phones that should let you
do similar things, if you didn't root your phone.

Hi Jeff,

 My phone is *so* rooted. Like the first thing I did after unboxing.
 The Verizon crapware was so annoying!

 I've got my Android rooted and have a ssh server running there.

 I have a terminal emulator (I think it was installed with BusyBox).
 Did your terminal come with an ssh server, or did you hack it in? Any
 pointers or walkthroughs would be appreciated.

I have a HTC Magic, and use the Cyanogenmod ROM. There the ssh daemon
dropbear is included. It is just a matter to set it up.

A google search on $YOUR_PHONE android dropbear should tell you, if
this sshd daemon is running you your device as well.

[Orgmode] Re: export html - doc

2010-12-20 Thread Holger Wenzel
Hi Eric,

 I know this is an awfully tired topic, and I'll be thrilled when the odt
 exporter is ready, but in the meantime exporting to HTML and then either
 opening or copying/pasting into OpenOffice is not working for me, while
 it does seem to be working for other people.

 I'm on Ubuntu, Emacs 23.3 and yesterday's org-mode. I export to html
 just fine. Then I figure I have two options: open the html directly with
 OpenOffice, or copy and paste the text. Opening the html directly just
 shows me an unrendered html document. Copying and pasting into
 OpenOffice turns all the italics into funny little grey boxes (one on
 either side of the meant-to-be-italics text), and no actual italics.


Did you try to suppress the xml declaration in the exported html?

#+OPTIONS: org-export-html-xml-declaration (quote ((php . ?php echo \?xml 
version=\\\1.1\\\ encoding=\\\%s\\\ ?\; ?)))

At least MS-Word and Chromium don't seem to like that xml version line
and refuse to render the document.


Hth,

Holger

holistic approach regarding organizing all aspects of academic life and to

I'd start with:

  Betreff: [O] Organizing and taming hectic Academia work (faculty 
viewpoint)?
  Tips or a good guides sought after :)
  Hi all
 
  Im a young assistant professor (in humanities and thus my horrific 
coding
  skills..basically non ) and having been using orgmode for a year or two
  now. I love orgmode dearly and use it mainly for note taking, lists etc
 
  I am aware of the fantastic orgmode capabilities that could benefit me 
greatly
  such as exporting, email tie-ins, beamer support, organizing my 
bibliography
  (i have switched to a .bib file recently for my references), agenda
  capabilities and so much moreand have tried several of these with mild
  success. 
 
  unfortunately (and this maybe due to me not being very technical and 
lack of
  coding skills) i still feel like im really not using orgmode to its 
potential
  and still feel miserably lost in terms of organizing my work in academia 
from
  all aspects.
 
  i am looking for 2 things really: 
  1. as i said in the post topic a good guide if anyone is aware of or 
detailed
  examples of using org in Academia (mainly aimed at faculty :))
 
  2. related to that as a young researcher with multiple students, paper
  writing, grant applications, department duties, endless TODOS, endless 
email i
  would really be grateful for even non org specific tips on how other 
people
  organize all this to make life more..well..organized :)
 
  thanks alot in advance and sorry for the long mail
 
  best
