To try to respond to your question adf, the Spoken program is really just a java front end for flite, the way I understand it. I haven't been able to get flite to work yet so I can't compare the two.

hmmm..... My flite was just a binary that I exracted on my sd card. It simply worked when invoked. Maybe you should try a different flite package?

Then get the ready-made binaries for the Z here :
http://fredp.lautre.net/Z/

Copy them to the 'bin' directory under your ELOG installation and off you go...

I tried elog. very nice, starting to record my experience with 6k into the elog. However, the latest version is 2.5.6. The binary you provided, which works very nicely, is only 2.5.3. Can you update your binary or Can you teach me how to make the binary for Zaurus.

TextMaker: Word processing with all desktop features of MS Word and combatible to .doc.
Commercial 49.95$
Trial version also aviable.

TextMaker

I had a look at TextMaker and it's so much more full-featured than Hancom Word. Am using the demo (no .doc or .rtf saving) right now. My wife and I are editors/writers and we needed an app with full support for styles and formatting.

... but $50 is steep. Really steep. I don't know if it's worth that much, or if it's just better to deal with the shortcomings of Hancom Word.

As for software, I'm reliant on a lot of what's already been mentioned and linked: Kismet, Gaim, qpdf, KDE-PIM/Pi (with KPhone) and Kino 2.

Well, there are four ways I know of, from hardest to easiest :

- install a cross-compiling environment on your home PC
- install a native ARM gcc on your Zaurus
- access a ready-made platform made available by nice people (handhelds.org)
- have an already-equipped nice person make it for you and mail it to you

See this thread in which I learned these things :
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=5167

I have tried the last 2 ways myself :-)

Right now I am back on a handhelds.org Ipaq compiling 2.5.6.
I'll let you know when the package on my web page is updated...

(and of course 2.5.7 will appear the very next day :-)

There, the new binaries are up now.

Haven't had time to test them on my Z though, you tell me :-)

My favorite apps which I run on my Yopy using Qtopia 1.7 are (in order of use):

Opie Reader as many have said, I echo the positive sentiments.
zBedic
Portabase
qPDF
Interstellar Flames (I also play Doom and Xmame a lot but under X)
ZUC

There seems to be a consensus of what is essential ;-)

I use my Z pretty hard, and I just recently reflashed with Cacko-lite and installed all my favourite "Best of Breed" software that I've sorted through over the last few years. My current app loadout:

KO/PI
KA/PI
OM/PI -These apps freed my from years of servitude to my Palm(s)!

Portabase - In place of a Syncable Palm Memo-like application. Are there *any* other options? Portabase works, but it's clunky - I really miss my Memo app sad.gif

Bookreader - As an image viewer. Fast, resamples pics for quality. I tried the sharp Photo Storage app but it was slower, didn't resample the pictures, and I couldn't seem to get it to work in rotated view.

HancomSheet
Textmaker - I just bought it, so HancomWord is on its way out

Sharp Dictionary and Translator
QPDF2
Opie Reader
ZEditor
ZSafe
ZStyle - For setting QTopia Application Fonts for Japanese support

Kino2 - for movies. I still use the original sharp musicplayer for MP3

Opera
Wellenreiter
Netactive - Qtopia bar icon that shows network traffic

Nano - Clone of Pico, my favorite CLI text editor.

Up Next:
I'm going to try ELOG to see how well it works for a media database, then I want to get Zbedic + Wikipedia going. When I get time to study again I'll have to re-sort the options for Kanji study programs - Nihongo(Kanji)Nirvana will make the list again for sure.

I'm using wikijserver( http://wikipedia.achterliek.de/index.php ) for reading the wikipedia.

I'm dreaming of having images for my wikipedia, but it would be to big. sad.gif

BilliardZ is really great, I'm still trying to get a configuration where I dont have to move the queue after the first shot and where one team wins in the end. It's for school, where I can't really play.

And of course kapi, kopi, mplayer, konquerror (searching the static wikipedia doesn't work with opera at the moment), textmaker (bought it last week, waiting for my ir-keyboard), powermanga and xmms.

If you travel on an underground railway... anywhere (pretty much)... worldwide you will like ubahnnav.. I always have it loaded. Works well at 640x480 but the icons are a little small.

Great set of worldwide tube maps available.

Keep your passwords in a safe place - have been using this since way before PWM/PI became available.

Speaking of ZSafe...
Have you tried to import the textfile created by ZSafe into PWM/PI? I can't get that to work. I'd love to switch to PWM/PI, because I like the interface better on the C3000. ZSafe doesn't take advantage of the full screen in landscape mode.
