Is it possible to run a Python-PyQt script as an Opie application?

So far my script runs from the console. But while it is running I can't launch another programm without killing it.

Can someone help me with some URLs to special guides to get me going?

Zaurus 5500G, OpenZaurus 3.5.3, Opie 1.2.0

I don't know exactly for Opie - but the stepe are more or less the same as on a Sharp ROM.

A few steps necessary

1) copy the .py file to /home/QtPalmtop/bin and make it executable
(you did a symlink - probably that might work as well)

2) make a .desktop file under /home/QtPalmtop/apps/<whichever tab you want>


[Desktop Entry]
Exec = file.py
MimeType = application/python
Icon = <graphics file under /home/qtpalmtop/pics>
Name = <whatever app>
Type = Application

3) edit the /home/QtPalmtop/etc/mime.types file and add a mime type for python
(this may not be necessary if you set the mimetypes in the .desktop file).

4) Restart Qtopia

That should put your application icon on the desktop.
Remember - for desktop apps - all scripts have to be in /home/QtPalmtop/bin

Hope this works...
