Hey guys.
I'd like to compile a list of very good (mature) software for the Z so that newbies don't get overwhelmed by the avalanche of apps available on it.
If you have very good apps you think no one should miss, reply here with name, link, and whatever info you think is necessary.
I'll update with mine in a few.
Please do NOT post questions/comments so this thread stays on-course, and easy to read

My personal list:

KDEP Pimpi Zautrix is our savior! Send him bug reports here
Opie Reader cool text reader.
Joe's Own Editor. Just a nice CLI text editor.
QPE Filemanager Just a little less braindead than the Files tab.
Qpdf2 Get the freetype package.
Bertram Wooster
just a few personal favourites...


PIM

KO/Pi: open source PIM application, also available for other OS featuring applications for addressbook, organizer, email and password
http://www.pi-sync.net/


DICTIONARY

zbedic
http://sourceforge.net/projects/bedic


TEXT

ZEditor: text editor, very good (free) alternative to tkceditor
http://satoshi.web5.jp/f_soft/dw_engzd.htm


FILE MANAGER

Tree!Explorer QT: free version still good enough!
http://hpcgi2.nifty.com/taku2001/zau/texplorerqt/top_en.cgi


IMAGE VIEWER

mooview: cons: only jpg, pro: cursor up/down change images
http://www.cs.unc.edu/~scheuerm/mooview/

tximage: more fileformats (jpg, gif, png)
couldn't find its homepage, download at:
http://www.elsix.org/downloads/tximage_0.2_arm.ipk


READER

APPS
NEOCAL
Provides a very good calculator for the Z, much better than the one built in. Free version very usable.
http://www.hudren.com/products/neocal/

INTERNET TOOLS
GAIM FOR QTOPIA
MSN messenger, Jabber, and AIM support. (A bit finicky in the install. Feh.)
http://qpe-gaim.sourceforge.net/

QAZOO
Yahoo Instant Messenger support.
http://qazoo.sourceforge.net/

Software I can't immediately find homepages for that I find useful:
NeIC - IRC client for the Zaurus
EmbeddedKonsole - For Unix programming, much better than the old Terminal.
OpieFTP - Basic FTP client

NETWORK SECURITY TOOLS

For the enlightened "mobile developer" :

A complete Python 2.3 (2.4 forthcoming) environment, plus PyQt for GUIs and SQLite3 bindings, in one neat package by Kopsis.

Installs easily as one large image file to a (FAT) CF or SD card, seen as a read/write ext2 filesystem thanks to some Linux magic.

The 2.4 version will also be available as a 'cramfs' image, about 5 times smaller, but read-only.

http://pyqplayer.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/b...qPlayerDownload

EDIT:
For coding directly on the Z, you can use ZEditor (already mentioned in this thread) just like with any text file, or the more specialized VisiScript. It is based on the well-known Scintilla engine (Qt version) and supports colored syntax for several languages (python perl ruby tcl etc.) as well as other niceties usually found in IDEs:
http://www.mneuroth.de/privat/zaurus/visiscript.html

EDIT2:
The new python 2.4 images by Kopsis are available:

A touch of the exotic, from Switzerland : ELOG

Not as well know as their cheese, chocolate, gold bars, Victorinox knives and luxury watches, but nice and useful too, and free :-)

Read up on ELOG here : http://midas.psi.ch/elog/

It's a versatile, 'batteries-included' weblog app (no separate web server or database needed) that can be turned into almost anything (blog, forum, note-taking, database etc.). Very simple to configure. Can replicate or synchronize between ELOG servers, & much more.

To try it out: grab the tar.gz archive on the site above (no IPK yet, sorry) and follow the Linux install instructions except for the "make" part.

Then get the ready-made binaries for the Z here :
http://fredp.lautre.net/Z/

Copy them to the 'bin' directory under your ELOG installation and off you go...
Kedge
TextMaker: Word processing with all desktop features of MS Word and combatible to .doc.
Commercial 49.95$
Trial version also aviable.

TextMaker
Stubear
Zten Variant (ztenv) http://hiki.lkj.jp/zten%B2%FE.html
A variant of the popular zten dictionary app

InkWP http://www.geocities.co.jp/SiliconValley-O...4550/inkwp.html
Handy note take that lets you write on the screen then transpose to text later

Opie Reader - already mentioned above but this app rocks - Thanks Tim! Probably the most used program on my Z.

X/Qt http://xqt.sourceforge.jp/
For when qtopia doesn't quite cut it, but you don't want to install pdaX

FreeNoteQT http://www.urban.ne.jp/home/kanemori/zaurus/freenote_e.html
Great note app and very usefull for making quick maps, diagrams etc

KeyHelper Applet http://yakty.s31.xrea.com/linuzau/keyhelper/
remap your keys, make shortcuts keys to start apps etc etc etc. maslovsky has added keyhelper support to CryKeyboard but it's a little out of date now (latest version is 1.2.2)

Zsafe http://z-soft.z-portal.info/zsafe/
Keep your passwords in a safe place - have been using this since way before PWM/PI became available.

ZEditor http://satoshi.web5.jp/f_soft/dw_engzd.htm
Handy little text editior

All the games from Zports http://zports.sourceforge.net/ for when the meetings just drag on and you want to help pass the time (Tip: Turn the sound off wink.gif)

I don't do much with my Zaurus, but I do use the Spoken program that converts text to speech. It is a java program that incorporates the flite speech processer and requires jeode. I have used it with my 5500 and 6000L. This has read me the news while I am jogging and walking to work for over a year now. For the money ($13 US) It is the best thing I have bought for my zauri.

To try to respond to your question adf, the Spoken program is really just a java front end for flite, the way I understand it. I haven't been able to get flite to work yet so I can't compare the two.
adf
hmmm..... My flite was just a binary that I exracted on my sd card. It simply worked when invoked. Maybe you should try a different flite package?

I had a look at TextMaker and it's so much more full-featured than Hancom Word. Am using the demo (no .doc or .rtf saving) right now. My wife and I are editors/writers and we needed an app with full support for styles and formatting.

... but $50 is steep. Really steep. I don't know if it's worth that much, or if it's just better to deal with the shortcomings of Hancom Word.

As for software, I'm reliant on a lot of what's already been mentioned and linked: Kismet, Gaim, qpdf, KDE-PIM/Pi (with KPhone) and Kino 2.

Well, there are four ways I know of, from hardest to easiest :

- install a cross-compiling environment on your home PC
- install a native ARM gcc on your Zaurus
- access a ready-made platform made available by nice people (handhelds.org)
- have an already-equipped nice person make it for you and mail it to you

See this thread in which I learned these things :
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=5167

I have tried the last 2 ways myself :-)

Right now I am back on a handhelds.org Ipaq compiling 2.5.6.
I'll let you know when the package on my web page is updated...

(and of course 2.5.7 will appear the very next day :-)
fpp
There, the new binaries are up now.

Haven't had time to test them on my Z though, you tell me :-)

My favorite apps which I run on my Yopy using Qtopia 1.7 are (in order of use):

Opie Reader as many have said, I echo the positive sentiments.
zBedic
Portabase
qPDF
Interstellar Flames (I also play Doom and Xmame a lot but under X)
ZUC

There seems to be a consensus of what is essential ;-)
kahm
I use my Z pretty hard, and I just recently reflashed with Cacko-lite and installed all my favourite "Best of Breed" software that I've sorted through over the last few years. My current app loadout:

KO/PI
KA/PI
OM/PI -These apps freed my from years of servitude to my Palm(s)!

Portabase - In place of a Syncable Palm Memo-like application. Are there *any* other options? Portabase works, but it's clunky - I really miss my Memo app sad.gif

Bookreader - As an image viewer. Fast, resamples pics for quality. I tried the sharp Photo Storage app but it was slower, didn't resample the pictures, and I couldn't seem to get it to work in rotated view.

HancomSheet
Textmaker - I just bought it, so HancomWord is on its way out

Sharp Dictionary and Translator
QPDF2
Opie Reader
ZEditor
ZSafe
ZStyle - For setting QTopia Application Fonts for Japanese support

Kino2 - for movies. I still use the original sharp musicplayer for MP3

Opera
Wellenreiter
Netactive - Qtopia bar icon that shows network traffic

Nano - Clone of Pico, my favorite CLI text editor.

Up Next:
I'm going to try ELOG to see how well it works for a media database, then I want to get Zbedic + Wikipedia going. When I get time to study again I'll have to re-sort the options for Kanji study programs - Nihongo(Kanji)Nirvana will make the list again for sure.
DeGT
I'm using wikijserver( http://wikipedia.achterliek.de/index.php ) for reading the wikipedia.

I'm dreaming of having images for my wikipedia, but it would be to big. sad.gif

BilliardZ is really great, I'm still trying to get a configuration where I dont have to move the queue after the first shot and where one team wins in the end. It's for school, where I can't really play.

And of course kapi, kopi, mplayer, konquerror (searching the static wikipedia doesn't work with opera at the moment), textmaker (bought it last week, waiting for my ir-keyboard), powermanga and xmms.

If you travel on an underground railway... anywhere (pretty much)... worldwide you will like ubahnnav.. I always have it loaded. Works well at 640x480 but the icons are a little small.

Great set of worldwide tube maps available.

Speaking of ZSafe...
Have you tried to import the textfile created by ZSafe into PWM/PI? I can't get that to work. I'd love to switch to PWM/PI, because I like the interface better on the C3000. ZSafe doesn't take advantage of the full screen in landscape mode.

I took a look at Notez. It's a good start, but hardly feature complete. (No syncing ability).

I'm planning to do a more fully featured memo-like app as a warm up for a media database.

*Bonus*

Movie Shrink&Burn - http://www.ashampoo.com/frontend/products/...ession_langid=2

This is a PC application, but I've used it with great success to shrink large movie files town to pocket friendly sizes (some of which I played on the Z)
Ragnorok
KO/PI
- The cat's meow in terms of Calendaring on the Z, hands down.
KA/PI
- The cat's meow in terms of Address books on the Z, hands down. Is there an echo in here?
PWM/PI
- Used zSafe for years, now I use this. It's vastly better, overall, depsite some odd quirks, imho. Since I have the source I'll likely do something about them, when they become annoying enough. (wink)
NeoCal
- Finally bought this simply amazing little guy, instead of using the unlimited use freeweare version. I've never looked for anything else.
StageOne
- Task list application that does percentage completion for you, supports multiple files, plus images and notes right in the ToDo. KO/PI is better than most ToDo apps, but this is still my favorite.
JustReader
- Found this on this uber-list. Great e-book reader!
QPDF
- Been using this as long as I've owned a Z. Once I figured out how to get it to run in landscape on the C1000 I was very happy! (snicker)
PortaBase
- Found this on this uber-list. Reminds me of the database app on the Psion, which I've sorely missed for years and years. Nice to have it back.
Opera
- Because it's better than any alternative I've tried. Haven't done the Debian/Firefox combo yet.
QKonsole
- Very nice support for larger fonts, full-screen mode, and the ability to remove most of the useless "window dressing", make this beat out Konsole, my old command-line tool of choice.
Tree!Explorer
- Found on this uber-list. VERY sweet app that I'll have to be registering, to have the "SendTo" style functionality.
SystemInfo
- Been using this as long as I've owned Z's, too. It still doesn't show my kernel version correctly, but that's the minorest of minor things in this excellent tool.
Memory Applet
- Used to manage swap with it, now it's just a nice indicator of my memory usage.
Kalarm Applet
- Because it's part of the suite. (grin)
Battery Applet
- Shows battery status in a little pop-up, instead of consuming the *entire* screen for something so simplistic.
BlueZ
- While not an app, per se, it is something I've installed, so it's included. Very slick bluetooth implemention that I'd love to do a little coding on, if'n I could piece it all together somehow.

Asteroids
- From the SL-5000, which runs on the larger screen very nicely. The "Menu" button even gives me shields, which *never* worked on the 5500.
NetHack
- At last I have this available again! It refused to run symlinked to the SD card, and I didn't have enough main storage to load it on the 5500. That's just no longer an issue. (grin)
Barrage
- Nice little kill everything game, in a just wrong sort of way. (snicker) Kinda like Lemmings was, in that regard.
Marbles
- Nice brain buster whose only "fault" is very tiny text. Doesn't affect playability in the least!
Mahjongg, Shisen-Sho, zIQ, zKnights, lTris, lGeneral, Go (SL-5500), BackGammon, Atomic, Word Game (SL-5500), Checkers, Mine Hunt (SL-5500)

Anything not explictly listed, I use the default apps for. Music, word processing, spreadsheet, photos, etc, etc. Haven't gotten 'round to looking for alternatives, yet.
PrOtOn
Once I decided what I want in my Zaurus, should I install these applications in the Zaurus or in a SD card?
I also downloaded kdepin, but I don't know if it should be part of the ROM core or just in a SD card.
Thank in advance.

It doesn't really matter. Install in main memory if you don't need the extra space, so you can take the card out and still have working apps.

I've read with interest all the thread. Coming more from a business background, I found not much use to me on the more technical applications (I was probably a programmer in a past life, as I am "complicating myself" with a Zaurus), but found more and more business apps on your list. A couple of questions pop my mind:

1. What about Powerpoint, the viewer that comes with Hancom is very limited for real life business presentations. Is there any progress so far in this department?

2. I see much of the conversation do not reflect applications from TheKompany, I saw their site and it seems they have a lot of commercial applications. Is there any specific reason it is not mentioned here. In their site, they mention the SL-5500 which I have, but what about other models?

Textmaker has been coming up on Ebay lately, in Linux (desktop version) form no less. I scored a copy for just $4.99, then asked the nice people at Textmaker if I could have the .ipk version and they obliged!!

Otto,

I've bought several of the theKompany's apps and overall they work quite well and they have pretty good support and email list too.

Think you can try out apps before buying....

I've used them on a 760/860/3000, and now my 3100...

Will JSword run on the C1000?  (I know it requires Java which appears to be OK: http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/custom.html#java


I have QPSword running on my C1000 but am not real happy with the way it looks and
it is quite old (2003).

JSword seems to be more current.

Will have to see to Java and then try JSword.

In testing OpenZaurus 3.5.4, I also ran across Dagger from the Sword project. Its available from the Sword project web page as well as in the OZ 3.5.3 feeds.

The interface is much improved over QPsword. although admit that I haven't tried JSword.

Which version would you recommend for the C1000?

Download

Source code

* dagger-0.9.3.tar.bz2

Binary packages for OpenZaurus 3.5.3 or Familiar 0.8.2

For StrongArm-based devices (iPaq 36xx/37xx, Zaurus 5500, etc.)

* Sword v1.5.8
* Dagger v0.9.3

For XScale-based devices (Zaurus C7x0/8x0, 6000, etc.)

* Sword v1.5.8
* Dagger v0.9.3

Also, is there any reason to believe that JSword would not run on the C1000
based on what you see in the Java available to the C1000 and the requirements
of JSword?

Thanks! doc
