First release of SimpleEdit just uploaded to My Webpage .
This is a fairly basic programmers text editor for Qtopia on the Zaurus.
It uses the Scintilla editor widget (via the QScintilla wrapper) for it's underlying edit widget, and as such supports folding, search/replace & code completion.
Also has multiple tabs, splitable views, syntax highlighting, undo/redo, keyboard shortcuts, etc.

Try it out - I reckon it's not bad - better than tkcEdit anyway (has keyboard shortcuts for those of us with IR/USB keyboards anyway).<br>

I've only tried this on the SL6000 - any feedback appreciated.

(I know we don't really need another editor for the Zaurus - I really just wanted one that did the stuff I wanted it to)

For ages I've thought it'd be nice to have ethereal actually work on my Zaurus. What with having a "proper" ethernet connection (via a cheap Dynamode USB2Ethernet adaptor), it looked like it'd be dead handy.

Anyway, all binaries I've come across of zethereal just don't work on a stock Sharp ROM on either my SL5500 or my SL6000. So I finally took a little time out tonight to find out why.

It comes down to what I suspect is a bug in QT on those ROM's (setting the sizePolicy for a QPushButton causes the program to crash), and commenting out the one line of zethereal's startup code that does this (then jumping through all the hoops required to actually compile it) produces a binary that actually works (tested with the built-in WIFI and external ethernet on my SL6000).

My binary is a tad on the large side though (at 4M), but I can post it if anyone's interested..

Has anyone tried using a USB ethernet adaptor with the SL6000? I looked at the sl6000 kernel source and it didn't have support for the either of the two adaptor's I'm thinking of buying, so I've back-ported the drivers from a more recent 2.4 series kernel (the ax8817x and rtl8150 usb drivers).

However, it's not worth me actually buying the thing if the Z won't put out enough juice to power it up. Anyone know if it's likely to work?

If it does work, eBuyer are flogging an RTL8150 adaptor from Dynamode for like, £6 - which is a bit of a bargain really....

For those who've not been following the discussion in the SL6000 forum about USB mouse support on the standard Sharp ROM....

I've added some code to the InputHelper applet to allow you to use a USB mouse under Qtopia on the SL6000.

Today I got a mail from Yakty in Japan (who wrote InputHelper) with some unexpected news...

It works also on SL-C750 with REX-CFU1(USB host CF Card), and SL-C3000.

I expect that as it works with the C750 via the CF USB host card, it'll also work with other Zaurus models in the same way - and working with the C3000 out of the box is a real bonus.

For a preliminary version, take a look at the thread in the SL6000 hardware forum, or wait for the next version of InputHelper (which will include the required code).

Whilst messing about adding Intellimouse scroll wheel support for the mouse driver, I made a mistake that sent the wrong codes to Qtopia. Much to my surprise, this caused a menu to pop up that let's you change the style of each app individually on the fly.

There's only two to chose from - one is the default QT style (I don't mean the default Qtopia style - this is the normal QT on the desktop style), and an OSX clone style called Hydra (that doesn't draw 100% correctly).

The other effect of selecting one of these styles is that the app immediately becomes rootless and let's you drag it's window around the screen (works on all apps, including the email app and Opera).

It's not that useful, but it's an interesting hidden feature....

(someone's now going to tell me this is common knowledge, and I've just not noticed it in the past....)
