thanks for the complete description. I tried the man pages (in Linux
Ubuntu), which are not so exhaustive and since my Linux system is
working stable since about 1 year I forgot completely the --help option.

This is what I did (just to summarize for other readers):

gpilot-install-file --later --pda="PalmTX" <filename>

where "PalmTX" is the "Name" of the PDA in the applet. Hotsynching the
device installed the file.

With this tutorial (sorry it's in German, but it was the only one that
was not confusing):, I was able
to add the functionality to the right-click menu in Nautilus (actually
without installing the "nautilus-actions").

gnome-pilot is working fine with me, but it is not possible to define
the device to install a file to.

I am using IR.
