Oh dam....
I run into something very horrible!
It's probably more than what you guys are asking for...
Will also install Debian on my Eee PC and apply the same "thing" as on my Z now.
Stay tuned. smile.gif

Hi ZDevil,

These configuration tweaks and enhancements sound great. It's little details like these that really make a distro. feel "solid" and complete and give them that instant "YES! I like this distro" effect, at least for Linux n00bs (like myself) who are not as skilled as yourself and others on this forum. I will have a go at some of these new scripts and config. ideas, as soon as I have some free time. After your last post tho, I think I'll hold out to see just what horror you have just encountered (so i can avoid them myself)! wink.gif

Anyway, this distro really seems to be taking shape as a nice, complete and functional whole..

*me waiting with baited-breath for news update from ZDevil!

Thanks. It's very close. Now creating a big installer for a brand new desktop + window manager suite, with tons of useful small apps and applets. Hope can post it today or tomorrow, depending on when my 3200 finishes compiling xmame-x... tongue.gif

Upcoming ... wink.gif

Mouse right click by tapping longer ... [DONE] (no more extra binaries/keybinding... yike!)
Wallpaper auto-resizing after screen rotation ... [DONE]
Panel resizing after screen rotation ... [DONE]
Panel applets: clcok w/ PIM functionality, battery, memory cards, volume, network (can open wifi-radar!), weather, file finder, and even SSH mount etc. ... [DONE]
Easy to use system root program menu ... [DONE]
Window maximizing, minimizing, fullscreen ... [DONE]
Eye-candies, speed, lightweight ... [DONE]

All these will show up in a new "environment" tailored-made for Debian/Zaurus.

Very very soon ...

Wow, sounds really nice! Particularly exiting keywords for me:
Panel applets, SSH mount, fullscreen, speed!

Thanks!

@ZDevil

This sounds interesting. Could you post your tips on icewm?

tongue.gif Sorry for delaying the launch of my little "project"

There is some perfectionist bug in my making, which causes me to keep creating a couple more small handy applets and menu items and making things look nicer.

Just added and tested these on top of the previous list:

Yet a few more new menu items ...
  • Connect/Disconnect (will find out which wireless interface you are using and operate on it wink.gif ; pretty much like in Sharp/Cacko rom)
  • Screencap w/ timestamp
  • One single rotate button (instead of two in the first scriptpack) to switch between landscape/portrait + wallpaper auto-resizing
  • Find file
Yet a few more panel applets
  • Showdesktop
  • Fullscreen
  • Window + Workspace list
  • Screencap
  • Virtual keyboard (xvkbd in pdaxrom-style)
... and yes, I can use the stylus to do mouse right click simply by tapping longer on the screen. No more xbindkeys or "mouseclick".

I've started creating .debs and writing documentations.
It still takes a bit more time, as I've splitthe project into two: 1) a full-blown desktop environment suite; 2) a Icewm-only enhancement (without desktop manager)

The goal is simple: to create a fast, lightweight and really good-looking desktop environment for Debian/Zaurus, comparable to the interfaces in Sharp/Cacko/pdaXrom.
I've set up exactly the same desktop environment on my Eee PC 701 (running Debian Lenny). Honestly I love this much more than Xfce4. smile.gif

I am working on this right now (nice weather here!). I guess I can finish and launch it today. smile.gif

Latest update:

I find myself working on three things instead of one as originally planned: i) a general hotfix package; ii) a icewm enhancement package; ii) a full-blown new desktop enviroment installer. Still refining a couple of postinst and postrm scripts. And I am trying to pick up some python to modify the wifi applet to add a connect/disconnect button to its popup menu. So please expect a short delay again.

Things are 90% done now.

Hi ZDevil,

Wondering if you can release at least a 90% done version or so if you haven't had time to finish everything you wanted to do yet???

Would be great to have now!

Thanks!

PS. Have a feeling that you've been distracted by work on HTC Universal..... wink.gif

This is interesting. smile.gif

I'm working on a new distro (Titchy 2?) for clamshell Zauri and the HTC Universal, that will run from an SD card without touching the installed OS (like a live CD). I want to have as much as possible working "out of the box", and some of your "tweaks" sound like they would make very useful additions...
