I just got a new 3100. Much to my dismay, I just discovered that most add-on software operates sideways on this unit: very tough to type that way with one's head cocked to the side against one's shoulder. Also, after awhile, pain develops in the neck....

Can everyone post lists of 3rd party add-on, open source or commercial, software that they have tried or use that 100% works with 3100 in keyboard mode? I would assume that if it works with 3100 it probably also works with 3000 and 1000, as such, 3000 and 1000 software that you may have used would qualify for this post.

Is there a utility that can rotate the screen so that the program would be upright in keyboard mode even it it is still narrow as in portrait mode?

I would appreciate it.

In my experience the Rotate utilities cause problems and are best avoided.

Here is my list of apps that automatically orientate themselves on my C1000 to suit the screen position:

Opera 7.3
Opie Reader
Pi-Sync apps, Ko/Pi, Ka/Pi, etc
Stage One
Textmaker
tkcAddressbook
tkcBackup
tkcCalender
tkcCard
tkcEditor
tkcExpense
tkcExplorer
tkcFindfile
tkcGallery
tkcPlayer
tkcShopper
tkcTodo
Tree Explorer
Zbedic
ZUC


Apps with selectable rotate:
Qpdf2

Apps I use but which don’t rotate:
Portabase
BDicty

Sorry this is not definitive, I can only speak as I find.

I searched everywhere in the menus etc on textmaker and on stage one: where is the option to orientate to landscape screen? What did you do to make them work that way?
Thanks for any info.

All I can Say is: Un*%#((ing believable!!!
And I thought I would have to use half these programs sideways. The Zauraus rocks! light years ahead of the palms I have been using.
Thanks guys for your help!

I wish all programs were this easy to solve biggrin.gif
Cresho
so i take it you learned how to fix the rotate problems.

have you tried my oslinux or gant theme from zaurusthemes or kino2 from my zaurusvideo?

how about my snes package from this forum?

do a search for snes inthis form and you will bounce to my post.

my current setup
