It might be better for you to post this in the X/Qt forum section, Oncle-dave....

Just a suggestion...

oncle-dave,

I also tried to install xqt debian as per this site,
http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/custom.html

I am running cacko 3kb1, when I try to install sudo and do the modifications meanie remommends, I am unable to turn off my Z.

So I have tried to install without sudo and run as root. I have cleared my Z 3 times and tired to reinstall 3 times. The last time without any errors. But when I try to run # su -
# xlauncher debian
the treminal window opens, blank screen, I wait, and I wait, and I wait.
But nothing. I just get the blank screen missing the terminal window.

I will try to install again. It is really frustrating, spending lots of time - I am fairly new to the Z. However, it is lots of fun. Learning and reading all I can. It is just too bad I cannot read all the info on line in one day. Then I could really push my Z!

Good luck with xqt Debian.

Perseus,

Hang in there....I've found if you keep trying and ask questions on OE Forums when you get stuck, you will usually get there eventually...

Meanie's website that you reference is an excellent resource and he's been a great help on the forums here as well...

I'm running Cacko 3K b1.23 too along with X/Qt/Debian and all works great now...had a few hiccups along the way, but slowly got them worked out.

So keep trying and ask specific questions when you have problems...

But as I suggested before, I think you will get more responses if you post in the X/Qt forum for this...

HTH,

Mark

Thanks ArchiMark!

I will follow your advice and post on the X/qt forums.

I will try to install everything again and then post there with my questions.

Thanks again for the encouragement!

Meanie or anyone else out there that can help...

I followed Meanie's instructions by installing X/QT here:

http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/custom.html#xqt

after I did this:
# cd /opt/QtPalmtop/bin
# su
# ln -s Xqt X
# ln -s rxvt xterm

I skipped this:
add the following to /home/zaurus/.xinitrc
xmodmap -e "keycode 69 = slash comma"
xmodmap -e "keycode 70 = period question"


Hint: you can use the command line program xev from within X to determine the keycode of different keys on the SL-C3000 keyboard and add the mapping with xmodmap like I did, or alternatively, you can create a .xmodmaprc file to customize your keymaps instead.

You might also want to add the following to your .profile file:
export DISPLAY=:0.0

In addition, I modified .xinitrc and replaced the line:
rxvt &

with the following:
if [ -f $HOME/.xstart ]; then

XAPP=`cat $HOME/.xstart`
`$XAPP`&
rm $HOME/.xstart

else

rxvt &

fi


Then I replaced the content of /home/QtPalmtop/bin/startx-wrapper with the following:
#!/bin/sh
X=`ps -ef|grep X|grep qt`
if [ "$X" = "" ]; then

echo $1 > /$HOME/.xstart
startx

else

export DISPLAY=:0.0
$1 &

fi

becasuse of this:
Note: You can also install [xqt-debian-scripts_0.2_arm.ipk] instead of xqt-startup-scripts [xqt-startup-scripts_0.0.3_all.ipk] which will give you an even more enhanced .xinitrc and startx-wrapper and you don't need to do the above modifications manually. (It will also give you an additional Debian icon which you can delete if you don't intend to install Debian)

So according to the instructions, I can replace
xqt-startup-scripts [xqt-startup-scripts_0.0.3_all.ipk]

with:
xqt-debian-scripts_0.2_arm.ipk

Here is my problem:
When I replace with debian scripts my x window or debian window does not display the rxvt window. If I leave the xqt scripts and add debian scripts on top of that it seems to work.

However, I have tried numerous installations trying to get debian to work.

I either just get error messages and pocketworkstation does not launch.

Or my latest one, I launches and I end up with a blue screen missing the rxvt window.

Any pointers are greatly appreciated.
I am running cacko 3kb1, sudo does not want to work, my on-off switch stops working if I install so I have tried:
#cd /hdd3/debroot
#su -
#xlauncher debian

Thanks for taking the time.

Ok, I am going to try to install Debian without the debian scripts.

Could some one help me with this:

In addition, I modified .xinitrc and replaced the line:
rxvt &

with the following:
if [ -f $HOME/.xstart ]; then

XAPP=`cat $HOME/.xstart`
`$XAPP`&
rm $HOME/.xstart

else

rxvt &

fi

When I try to modify this file, I get a warning message read only. So I do :! to over-ride, then I press enter, but the file is still not saved.

Thanks.

I am working on a simplified Debian tarball based on zaurus-debian-base-v0.18.tgz with OpenOffice, Firefox and Thunderbird pre-installed.

You might want to give it a go once it is finished.
