Hi, anyone had a look at this: http://www.adebenham.com/gournal/ ?
Seems like it would be really useful on the Z. It's based on perl and gtk.

I'm keen on helping to port it across to python and gtk if anyone else is interested.
We would need gnome's canvas and python bindings. Everything else (python, pygtk etc)
is already available as an ipk. I've had a play with a demo scribble script in pygtk and I think
the Z is fast enough for it not to be a problem.

I would certainly be interested... sorry to see that no one else has [publicly] expressed enthusiasm.

Hi,

After reading this posts I installed a few libs on pocketworkstation, and this is what I achieved :

I can start it simply by typing "Crd gournal" from a pdaX-terminal-window


Chero.

nice going chero!

How usable is it (responsiveness etc)?

I would still rather see native version .... two approaches would be to either compile perl-gtk (and perl-gnome-canvas ?) or to port the app to python and compile python-gnome-canvas bindings.

I'd prefer the latter as I'm a python afficionado, and would like to develop the application further both for a desktop and on the Z
