Since Gnome is generally faster than KDE, and KDE runs fine even if a bit slowly on our Zaurus, what about porting gnome_base?

also XFCE4 would be good, maybe better, if we get the last version

gpe uses gtk, the widgets used by gnome. gpe might also share some standards with gnome but it is not gnome based.

I was guessing based on stuff i saw in OZ--- gnome-vfs was needed to get the "gpe-filemanager' going.

@alexjlee here:
http://www.pdaxrom.org/oldunstable/

Not that these packagea were built before softfloat...some packages might not work but xfce seems to run

@adf:
ah perhaps gpe is using some gnome libraries.

Note that some gnome packages are in the pdaxrom feed also, mainly there to be able to run gnumeric (but not the whole gnome distribution)

I'd like a recent version of XFCE4, compiled and stripped with the last sdk.

An old binary doesn't sound good to me...

thought maybe i'd mention that the default wm is quite nice. Looks great, is speedy and useable.
Can the panel be (auto)hidden?

wow. i was blown away by xfce4.
it's so fast, clean and smooth!

the only downside is that the package is old. xffm seems to die horribly with an illegal instruction. I think with a bit of a polish this will replace my default/rox combination for good.

I'm compiling xfce4 version 4.2.2 (dated may 18 2005) on RC10.
(with softfloat)
Desktop - panel - libs - settings are compiled and running
Still working on the rest.

I'll post a screen shot later.

Hi,

Here's a screenshot (if someone could convert it to jpg and put it back, i would be very happy - my gimp installation is broken, so i can't do it myself right now, sorry)

So, how far are we :
- the panel segfaulted - now solved
- i had the desktop running with a full popup menu - segfaults now
- right click = "fn" - click
- runs faster than the old xfce 4.0.4

What i want to do :
- get the desktop working again
- add "iconbox"
- .ipk it and put it on unstable feed

Chero
