Full Version: What Do You Run Under X/qt

I just installed X\QT on my sl-6000 with the standerd rom. I got it running just fine. But than I started thinking what will I run on it? I have no expreace with X on a zaurus. So I guess am asking what programs do you run under X\QT, and how well do thay work.

I mostly use X/Qt to run some Tcl/Tk scripts I have. I use the Tclkit package to get Tcl/Tk. It works fine. I've also used ssh -X a few times under X/Qt which allows me to display on the Zaurus apps that are running on a linux desktop.

I run pocketworkstation, and then i have a full debian system with a lot of apps :
- monager : pretty basic, runs smoothly
- kmymoney : runs fine, screens are to big for the Z
- kbudget : just the financial thing i needed, runs fine, need to close it before suspend
- planner : great
- gnumeric : i like it more than hancom sheet, once loaded : ok to me
- abiword : fantastic (takes long to load)
- tuxtype : my 7 year old daughter learns how to type
- tuxcards : fantastic
- qhacc : runs fine, but is double entry, (installed it 'cause i like the manual)
- dillo : runs fine
- firefox : takes long to load, runs fine after that
- nedit : very good practical text-editor
- xfce4 : window manager (see other thread)
- qcad : great stuff (more features than construct)
- openoffice : (see other threads)
- xgnokii : need to find out how to connect
- midnight commander : gives me a better feel than the one provided in cacko
- qgis : doesn't render correctly, something wrong in gdal-lib, I think
- and many others (always looking for great apps to run on a device that fits in my pocket)...

Cheers,
Chero.

I mostly use X/QT to remotely display other Unix/Linux servers. I don't really use it for much else.

Truthfully, everything I do locally on the Zaurus (C3000 in my case) I've been able to find decent apps for Qtopia. Well, OK, video still sucks :-)

I am using X/QT with the fast rom and at the moment I am using mainly gnumeric. It takes a bit more to lead than hancomm sheet but is then Much faster in loading XLS files and much more consistent.
I also tried some SDL games (Crimson skies, as tehre is an updated version there) and they work fine.

I have been using it mostly as a display for my headless server (on which I am feebly trying to set up courier, caudium, and asterisk --make it a sort of com relay) I also use compressed X to get to the same server (in dmz at home) and into my workstation to do things like compile, or check mail when I am elsewhere and firewalled or start and manage downloads (though plain old ssh does this just fine.

I would like to remap keys in xqt, though... the menu key would be much nicer if it bought up the black box menu.. no need for a stylus if setup right. then do some combo to get the
xqt "fullscreen/shutdown"menu.

I'm also a little annoyed about input helper bringing up the qtopia bar while xqt is running.
anyone know how to run a usb mouse straight in xqt? (I'm guessing, no, that qt is managing too much of the system for thast to work...)

Firefox, Ethereal, Xterm, Gnuplot, Perl/Tk, cgoban, fluxbox wm

I setup X/QT with one purpose, namely Firefox. Now that I got it working, I am trying to get OpenOffice to work...

Hello Adalberto,

do you have a link to the gnumeric package you used?

Kedge
amdonati
Kedge, I simply "apt-get install gnumeric" and it was there.

I also think it is in the main feed, so you should do nothing else as the main repositories are already configured in the pocket debian package.

Since I have no internet access on my Z I must download the package and can't install it over the net. Do you have a link to the feed?

Edit: I realized you use the pocket debian installation. So I will see if can use gnumeric without debian but only with XQT.

It should be possible to run Gnumeric directly in X/Qt.
But be careful with dependancies!
Maybe someone else tried it and could be more helpful.

Good luck,

Hi, I just bought an SL-C3000 and so far it's fantastic! (it's my first Zaurus wink.gif)

I've mainly been playing around with X/Qt and Debian.

So far I've been running:

gaim (A little slow to start, but once logged in runs nicely)
nedit (Runs very fast and is a great text editor)
skite (Text entry lags a bit)
abiword (Text entry lags a lot smile.gif)
dillo (Runs nice and quick and is great for most websites)
evolution (Takes a long time to load, but once loaded is just about usable)
and loads of others

Chero, you have some apps listed that dont seem to be in the debian repositories. Where did you find arm versions and how did you install them?

I compiled them on the Z, some take quite long to compile, but it just works.
I installed "make" and all needed libs.
Then it's just "./configure", "make", "make install" or "qmake", "make".
(or following instructions in readme files)

I don't remember where I downloaded all sources, just browse the www.

Awesome! I'll have to start trying out some of the apps I couldnt find in the repository. And I'll maybe learn how to create .deb packages and create a little repository of my own wink.gif

The zaurus just keeps getting better and better.
