There is a single install file which works on all platlforms (Windows, Mac, Linux). It installs an identical program on all platforms and all data files, preferences, etc. are also compatible across all platforms. To launch the installer, simply double-click the downloaded Jar file (If you do not have Java installed, you will need to do that first - install either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Java as appropriate for your platform).
If you using DirectSync, be sure that you have the latest official releases of BOTH Pimlical/Desktop and Pimlical/Android. Trying to use the current release of P/D with an old release of P/A or vice-versa is not likely to work.
Before syncing for the first time with Google Calendar, be sure to (a) export all your calendars in Google (for safety/backup), and (b) do a menu | Backup | Backup Everything in Pimlical/Desktop. If you were a former DateBk user, be sure to remove all the templates from January 1, 2020 as those cause problems with Google Calendar, and set the preference: SynchronizeDateBkTemplates to false.
When uninstalling, the Pimlico folder with the local databases and preferences is never automatically removed, so just manually remove that folder if you also want to remove all your calendar data and preferences.
You can hover the mouse over the link above to read the current version number. Pimlical will run in trial mode for approximately 30 days if not registered.
WINDOWS: Java Version 7 is required if syncing with an old Palm OS device or upgrading from an older version of Pimlical/Desktop that was reading the old Palm, MDB databases. See FAQ's for Pimlical/Desktop for more information on that topic. When upgrading for the first time using the new Java-based installer, be sure to uninstall the prior release using Windows Control Panel, Programs & Features, as this new version now installs into a different folder (either C:\Program Files (x86)\PimlicalApp, or C:\Program FIles\PimlicalApp).
MACINTOSH: After installer finishes, you can double-click the PimlicalMacLaunchIcon.zip file icon which creates a Pimlical folder in which there is an Application launch icon. Drag and drop that icon into the Applications folder. You can then drag and drop that icon onto the Dock for quick access.
After the above steps, you can delete the PimlicalMacLaunchIcon.zip file and associated Pimlical folder.
If Java is not installed, in most cases, OSX will prompt to install a runtime environment and you can just let it proceed with doing that. Otherwise, visit: http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp to install a current runtime environment for the Mac.
you try to open an app that is not registered with Apple by an
identified developer you may get a warning dialog. To
override your security settings and open the app anyway:
� In the Finder, locate the app you want to open. Don�t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn�t allow you to access the shortcut menu.
� Press the Control key, then click the app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu.
� Click Open.
You may also have to ensure that Pimlical can get through your Firewall if you have one installed.
To uninstall Pimlical, open the PimlicalApp folder in Applications folder and double-click the file: PimlicalUninstall.jar. You will also need to manually drag the Pimlical icon in the Applications folder into the trash.
LINUX: These notes apply to Ubuntu and may/should apply to other Linux Distros:
If Java is not installed, you can issue these terminal commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-set-default
When the installer exits, open a Terminal Window and issue this command:
sudo mv PimlicalApp /usr/local (and enter your password when requested)
If you are upgrading an existing installation, or want to uninstall Pimlical, you will first need to remove the existing Pimlical folder with this command (you may want to copy/paste this command to be 100% certain you don't mistype it!):
sudo rm -r /usr/local/PimlicalApp
| DirectSync is a
standard feature of Pimlical/Desktop that allows Pimlical/Desktop to
sync directly to an Android device, bypassing the cloud. This works in
conjunction with a local database on Pimlical/Android completely
separate from the standard Android calendar database.
The sync can take place either via USB cable (on Windows PC via MTP (if Android device supports it) or USB Mass storage) or by WiFi/network using built-in HTTP Local sync (or you can use a WebDAV server if you prefer).
DirectSync can sync multiple Android devices - so you can sync your phone to Pimlical/Desktop and then sync to a tablet or another phone so that all devices have the same calendar.
