there is definietly a space saving issue
That matters to me because I'm using guylhem's rom and putting my whole qtopia setup in internal memory, and pocketworkstation on sd. It is really nice to have the whole qt rom internal like that btw.
Pros: I always had glitches in abiword on XQT.none on keypebble (a gtk thing, I think)
Keypebble is much easier to get into and out of-- set a "pw" bookmark and click click you're in. IF the pocketworkstation Vncserver is up, that is. That can be started by typing "Vncserver" in a prompt--and that could almost certainly be attached to an icon for simpilicty. with nothing up and the Vncserver icon made you'd be a max of 4 clicks out of debian. (or 4 clicks and typing a word without the icon)
XQT seems more complicated to chroot..no matter how I set it up
You can rotate on the fly in keypebble
You can resize (by changing the settings in pocketworkstation) your virtual screen and use the keypebble scroll bars to navigate. This way (I haven't tried it yet) you could do a double your virtual screen size and a scle 2 in vnc..... or disconnect vnc change scale to 1 (click) and reconnect and scroll (if you wanted)
You actually install Klaus's scripts (like debshrink) to make pocketworkstation more manageable and have the option of using his fbvnc without ever going near qtopia (and his fbnc is very snappy) ATM i am trying to get loadkeys and guylhem's tosa.map to give me useable keys in fbvnc-any help there would be appreciated.
keypebble doesn't seem as resource hungry as xqt.
XQT will run some x stuff directly, vnc obviously won't.
Xqt is more popular, which make me wonder if I'm missing something( or if it is a leftover from the slow performance of the original vnc of the late 90's)
I don't know which is faster. It doesn't matter. If I want speed for a movie or a game, I do it in Qtopia. from keypebble, kino2 is a click away, and a click back.
Right now, I'm happier with Keypebble. dl opie-keypebble 1.0 (you will also need opie libs (they can be had from cacko, and I think the zaurus feed-- you can run wellenreiter with these libs, too) give it a shot and let me know what you think?
