Can´t get simpler than this. Just install the application called wordpress in your N900, and punch in the details for your blog along with your admin login and password and you have a amazing wordpress client. You can even add photos like the one below:

N900 and its applications keep me amazed and happy 🙂

N900 and skype support

LAS VEGAS - JANUARY 08:  The Nokia N900 phone ...

I was trying to add my skype account on the N900 today and could not add the account. I did not find any option to add the same. After some googling and searching, I found that I need to re-flash my N900.

I had flashed the India image earlier to check out what it would provide me but to my astonishment there is no skype support in the India image, so if you are planning to have the skype account added to the N900, then you need to flash either the Global Image (with the string “MR0” in the name of the image) or the US image (004) and not the India image (004).

And, btw if you flash your N900, you will not lose any contacts, mail, sms or any other data. What you will lose is the applications that you would have installed.

GPG error on N900 when doing update on command line

If you have added some extra repositories to your Nokia N900 and are trying to do something ( like update, install or any other apt-get operation) you might see some errors or warnings related to the GPG keys. The errors would come because the Public keys for the reporisitories are not present in the gpg database 🙂

Cool, now you know the reason, but what to do…  Add them as below:

(Before doing this note down the keys when you are getting the errors/warnings. We will need those keys to get the public keys from the public server. I am taking “010908312D230C5F” as an example here.)

gpg --keyserver --recv-key  010908312D230C5F gpg -a --export 010908312D230C5F | sudo apt-key add -

and if you need to see the currently active repositories then you can
open the following file and check the contents:

vim /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hildon-application-manager.list
