I was given this toy a long time ago, and after two weeks of messing with ROMs, it was just collecting dust. Battery probably has <5 cycles on it, and it has never been anywhere other than in my hand at home, or inside of a padded case. It's pretty much new, as I haven't found any real use for it yet. Comes with both chargers, lanyard, dummy cards, USB host cable, and as many Japanese manuals as I can find. I'll throw in the case, which fits like a glove and protects pretty darn well. Right now it's running pdaXii13, but I can flash (or leave it) to whatever you want.

I'm selling because I really haven't found a use for this nice toy... too small to type and too large to keep in pocket sad.gif

Shipping is from Hawaii to anywhere you'd like (you pay for shipping, and you pay first).

My asking price is $250, but I'll keep anything reasonable in mind. Drop me a PM, reply, and/or send an email to bplaut [at] gmail.

i can't seem to find a filemanager that fits my needs... i want something like IE's file manager, with a tree that coresponds to the main view (like Nautilus's Browser mode)

i found XFE... it claims to be lightweight, and has all the functions i want, so here it is:

only dependency (AFAIK) is the FOX-toolkit, get version 1.4.x from:
http://www.fox-toolkit.org/download.html

thanks to whoever decides to do this...

i've used pdaXrom for about 3 days now, and i don't really feel very comfortable compiling, just yet (i have enough trouble with it in Ubuntu tongue.gif )

DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. IT WORKS ON C1000, AND NO GARUNTEES ON ANYTHING. IF YOU BRICK IT, IT'S YOUR FAULT

This took a while to figure out, but it turned out to be super simple biggrin.gif
first, you need XFCE4 installed, you can find the ipkg at:

http://zaurus.spy.org/feeds/cacko/pdaXrom/....2_armv5tel.ipk

(if someone can make an ipkg of just the panel, that would rock)

and a somewhat vanilla install.

first, backup .xinitrc:

CODE
cp ~./.xinitrc .xinitrc.bak


next, edit .xinitrc with your favorite text editor (SciTE works nicely).

find this line:

QUOTE(old .xinitrc)
eval "matchbox-panel --no-flip $MBORIENT" 2>/dev/null


and change it to:

QUOTE(new .xinitrc)
eval "xfce4-panel"


restart X server, and enjoy smile.gif

<not working ATM>
to change the background, read this:
http://projects.o-hand.com/matchbox/docume...398.html#AEN401
the file is in /home/root/.matchbox/mb-desktop-background
</not working ATM>

Things that don't work:

A) When you end your session, any systray applets will have to be put back in apon startx

cool.gif The backrgound color is an ugly glue, and i have no idea why blink.gif, the config file is being weird, as well

C) closing the lid won't blank the screen

D) right click is going to be different for apps and for the panel <<edit>> maybe it works... i'm confused on this one ph34r.gif

and i'm sure many more problems that i haven't discovered yet dry.gif

i'm not a coder, so don't expect me to fix things... but i hope somebody who is a coder will take on those problems wub.gif

Things that are fixed:

Over vanilla matchbox:

A) it's got a taskbar rolleyes.gif

Over XCFE4.2.2:

A) matchbox-desktop (that's a plus for me, anyway)
cool.gif auto-rotate works
C)Fn+symbol keys work

------

Have Fun! smile.gif

is there a way to make a repo on an SD/CF card? it would be nice to be able to make a repo on the desktop, put it on the SD, and transfer it over- so i don't have to deal with dependency hell until i get a WiFi card

possible? any tips?

thanks,
Ben smile.gif
