I made a ubuntu 8.04 installation on a pc and yes that make's you happy :-)
Time and time zone are now working ok.

Problem now is that the fldigi is working ok ( did make psk31 qso) but not
communicating with pskmail.

my steps where:
1)  i did download pskmail-1.0.3d.tar.gz and made an install, did start
pskmail without first starting fldigi not working. ( that is obvious because
there is not fldigi to do the communication)
2) did download fldigi 2.05 and instal, run fldigi ( that was working ok
made psk31 qso).
3) try to start pskmail on top of that but the communication between fldigi
2.05 and pskmail 1.0.3d is not working.
4) uninstall fldigi2.05 from system and did a reinstall
of pskmail-1.0.3d.tar.gz ( i did find out that in the package of
pskmail-1.0.3d.tar.gz  there is also a fldigi version, should have look
better first time).
5) run fldigi 3.0 and make psk31 qso, start pskmail. In pskmail i could not
see any text being received by fldigi but when i did try to make a
connection with pskmail the transmitter would be put to tx but i could not
see any tx text in fldigi or in pskmail.
6) downloaded pskmail 1.0.3f and fldigi 3.04 from the hermes server. make an
install, run fldigi and make psk31 qso.
7) start pskmail 1.0.3f, now i could again not see any trafic that was
received by fldigi in pskmail. ( i did receive to dx4xi-8 with the weather
info). Also when i did try to make contact with a sever the transmitter
would not turn to TX.
I could see in the pskmail directory the file snd that did have the text
that would be send out, but somehow it did not get to fldigi or was
displayed in pskmail.

2 questions.
Is it normal that PSKmail does not display any monitor information ?.
How can pskmail and fldigi work together ?.
