Now that I've got X/Qt & Debian running OK, I'm trying to get IceWM under control...

1) Right now IceWM works, but looks lousy, white on white...

When I select other themes from the pop-up menu list, it takes a minute for the screen to
refresh, but it comes back the same way it was, no change.

I've checked on the IceWM website and there's some apps out there like IceWMControlPanel
that has some nice GUI controls to changing themes, etc.

When I tried to install IceWMControlPanel, it says that I need PyGtk2. Anyone know if this is available and would work on the C3000?

Or other suggestion for managing themes in IceWM?

2) Are other WM's like Fluxbox, xfce4 better than IceWM to use on Zaurus?
Easy to manage themes and other preferences?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Managed to get PyGtk2, thanks to ellomea in the Python forum.

Now I get the following error messages when I try to install IceWMControlPanel:
CODE
zaurus:/INSTALL-ICEME# ./INSTALL-ME.sh
./PyInstallShield: 214: DepreciationWarning: use gtk.UIManager
itemf=ItemFactory(MenuBar,"<main>", ag)

Any suggestions??

i just apt-get install icewm-themes and now i've an entry called "themes" in the IceWM start menu; so now i can swith themes from there.


you can also try to apt-get install iceconf
it's a graphical IceWM configuration tool
ArchiMark
Thanks for the advice, jpmatrix!

Just looked at iceconf, has a lot of options....

Thanks,

Mark
ArchiMark
jpmatrix or anybody else,

Could you please explain how you change your iceWM theme?

When I try to change it from the IceWM start menu, I select one of the themes from the list, the screen goes blank for a bit and then I see the same theme as before, NO change.

When I try to change in the iceconf app, browse, I couldn't seem to locate any theme files to select from.

Thanks!

Mark
Meanie
Is there an easy way of moving the icewm menu bar from the bottom of the screen to the top or do i need to install iceconf?
Elleomea
ArchiMax, it sounds as though you're doing everything correctly in terms of changing theme. It should just be a matter of selecting the theme and it being applied. I personally use IceWM with pocketworkstation's debian image (using fbvnc) on a c3000 without any problems; perhaps there's something odd about the version you installed?

Meanie, you can just set the value "TaskBarAtTop = 1" in ~/.icewm/preferences. You can change any setting within IceWM without a separate configuration program, they just make it much simpler than having to look up the relevant keywords to set.
ArchiMark
Thanks for your input, Ellomea!

Not sure what exactly you refer to below?

I'm using pocketworkstation's debian image with X/Qt on my C3000. I following instructions on smuelas's website and those on PocketworkstationXQT webpage.....

I seem to be able to do most everything else OK, apt-get, run apps, etc...

Driving me nuts!...

Archimark,

where is your .icewm directory located? do you have one under /home/zaurus ?
if not, create /home/zaurus and copy .icewm from INSTALL.d/debroot/root/.icewm (make sure its /home/zaurus under debroot smile.gif
ArchiMark
Thanks for your help, Meanie!

My .icewm directory is located at: /mnt/card/debroot/home/.icewm

I looked in this directory and nothing is in it.

Is it supposed to be empty?

Not clear as to where you want me to copy .icewm to. Do you mean at /home/zaurus/debroot/ ??

As noted above my /debroot directory is on my SD card.

Thanks!

Mark

well, it should be /mnt/card/debroot/home/zaurus/.icewm for you.

there should be six config files inside that directory, one of them called "theme"

have a look at my website to compare your installation steps to mine.
ArchiMark
Thanks again for your help, Meanie!

Unfortunately or fortunately, depending upon how you look at it... dry.gif
I just installed the new Cacko v1.23b1 for the C3000....couldn't resist after
waiting so long....works great! Only bad thing is that it erased everything on the
microdrive.... huh.gif

So guess I have to reinstall X/Qt/Debian again......

Oh well....maybe it will be better this time...

I use fluxbox and configured .xmodmaprc and fluxbox hot keys for maximum performance for laptop as well as pda mode.
IMHO fluxbox is lighter and allows much better options for pda mode operation.

If someone wants I could upload the .xmodmaprc, ~/.fluxbox/keys and a simple rotate script I use in my debian setup.

ArchiMark
That would be great if you could upload it, tovarish!

Meanie,

Took a good look at your website. Has lots of great info!

Going to install X/Qt/Debian per your instructions...

However, can't find one of the files you have in your list. Can you tell me where you
found it?

It's the 'glib_1.2.10-0v13_arm.ipk' file.

Thanks!

It's in http://sourceforge.jp/projects/xqt

Thanks meanie, but I looked there already. Maybe my eyes are bad, but what I see when I go to the download page is actually the 'glib-additional_1.2.10-2_arm.ipk' file not the 'glib_1.2.10-0v13_arm.ipk' file.

Meanwhile, would like to clarify two more things in your install instructions, please...

1) You mention that you can use the 'xqt-debian-scripts_0.1_arm.ipk' file. Do you install this AND the other 'xqt-startup-scripts_0.0.3_all.ipk' file too. Or just one of them? I do want to install Debian...

2) At the end of your modifications to the '.xinitrc' file, you show:

CODE
else
rxvt &
fi


Did you mean to delete the line 'blackbox' after 'rxvt &' ?? If not, does it still go after the line 'rxvt &' and then 'fi' ??

Thanks for your help!

you are right, that's not the one, but you can find it here http://zaurus.spy.org/feeds/naorou/

as for the rest, blackbox is meant to remain there. if you install xqt-startup-scripts_0.0.3_all.ipk then you need to do those modifications, alternatively, xqt-debian-scripts_0.1_arm.ipk is meant as a replacement for xqt-startup-scripts_0.0.3_all.ipk

with xqt-debian-scripts_0.1_arm.ipk you don't need to modify .xinitrc and startx-wrapper

I think I need to clean up that section a bit to make it a bit clearer.

Thanks for clarifying, Meanie!

Haven't been able to get X/Qt going yet today.....so hopefully this info
will do the trick...

This means that it is missing the freetype [freetype_2.1.5-1_arm.ipk] package. Try installing it and see if it works. Strangely, I did not have to install that package to run Debian and Firefox ( but it is needed for Minimo)
ArchiMark
Thanks for your help, Meanie.

OK, installed freetype. Now, here's what happens:

A) If I click on 'StartX' icon, it doesn't open, just see that crash graphic on icon.

cool.gif If I use Konsole, and type at prompt 'startx', I now get the following messages, but X does open up:

CODE
qtApInit

qtRandRRotate (270)
Create shadow Image: 480 x640
qtRandRInit ()
qtInitVisualShadowMasks 0000f000 000007e0 0000001f BPRGB 6 d 16 bpp 16
qtRandRInit ()
qtCreateDefColorMap - Deferring to fbCreateDefColorMap ()
qtFinishScreenInitFB - returning
qtScreenInit - returning

rxvt: error while loading shared libraries:
rxvt: undefined symbol: _Xsetlocale
BScreen:: BScreen: managing screen 0 using visual 0x21, depth 15
failed to set locale, reverting to "C"


Any ideas why X won't start from icon??

Any ideas about these error messages??

Does the locale error relate to not installing one of the locale files (included in other install instructions, but not Meanie's) ??

Again, I in option 'B' above, I did get X to open and if do 'fullscreen' I see what I think is the top of the rxvt window at the bottom of the display. At least I think it's just the top as I only see the title bar of the window, the rest of the display has that B&W grid look on it.

Thanks!

Mark

well, you had it working before. leave blackbox in there. it is what is keeping x running, if you remove it, x will just finish. by default blackbox provides a very bare minimum taskbar at the bottom which is what you saw before. if you want something fancy, replace it with flushbox or fvwm, etc... or just use debian's icewm.
if you want to get rid of the locale errors, just install the eucjp locale

Thanks as always, Meanie for your help!

ok, you should have 2 icons, X/Qt Server and Start X
which one did you use? the X/Qt does not work, the Start X one does and it should be launching startx-wrapper if you check the startx.desktop file. Also make sure you are not running it as root.

Yes, I have the 2 icons.

I used the Start X icon.

I am not running it as root.

Don't know what happened, but I just tried it again and a bit, it DID open it this time!

ArchiMark, if you followed the PocketWorkstation/XQT instructions on the debian Wiki you are running as root. The startup script calls su -c to issue the chroot, this leaves you logged in as root whilst the environment is running.

For some reason though, the environment still seems to have the idea that the ~ path is /home/zaurus and the instructions assume that your home is /home/root (as in the passwd file).

If you get back to where you were then issue the following command from a terminal window (from the Debian environment)...

ln -s /root /home/zaurus

Then try setting your theme. Themes are not being saved in your example because the theme manager couldn't find your home path to save the settings.

Actually I think I have found the better answer (if you have sudo installed, as you would with Cacko3K).

In the Qtopia envonment /home/zaurus/.xinitrc should contain...
CODE
#!/bin/sh
export LANG=en_US
export DISPLAY=:0.0

# default: use anthy
#export XMODIFIERS=@im=uim-anthy

# start uim-xim
if [ -x /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/uim-xim ]; then
   exec /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/uim-xim &
fi

if [ -f "${HOME}/.xmodmaprc" ]; then
       xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
fi
export HOME=/home/root
sudo chroot `cat /etc/debroot` /startd


Also if you are having keymap problems then one thing that's going to get in the way is KeyHelper, for some reason it works well now with standard XQT but as soon as you go debian it fails.

To avoid this issue if you have KeyHelper installed (or are using Cacko3K and it's built in) edit your /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/startx file add at the top...

khctl disable

and at the bottom...

khctl enable

Finally you probably want to create your .xmodmaprc in /home/zaurus (in the Qtopia environment) that looks like this...

CODE
keycode 69 = comma slash
keycode 70 = period question
keycode 142 = braceleft
keycode 143 = braceright
keycode 22 = minus grave


This will get the the comma, slash, period and question marks available.
Fn + O = {
Fn + P = }
Shift + - = `
iamasmith
For other keycodes you can use xev to find the keycode and the keysyms are available from...

OK, checking that Meanie...

OK, figured out the problem with visudo.... rolleyes.gif

Turns out that somehow, I installed an earlier version of sudo by mistake...

zaurus ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/ifconfig, /sbin/dhcpcd, /usr/bin/apache, /sbin/chroot, /bin/mount, /sbin/swapon

(per meanie's website)

When I enter # visudo in the console I get:

# subdoers file.
#
#This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
#See the subdoers man page for the details on how to write a subdoers file.
#
#Host alias specification

#User alias specification

#Cmnd alias specification

#user privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL

"/etc/subdoers.tmp" 15 lines, 294 chars
(this last part is highlighted and I am not able to input anything)



Thanks for your help.

visudo is a shell for editing /etc/sudoers using vi, so it works exactly like vi. do a google on vi tutorials if you don't know how to use vi. I am a vi fan, so I will not be suggesting you to use any other editors smile.gif
