Today I tried JPilot under xfce4 and found some minor glitches about the window sizes in different views. It seems Memo and Todo are narrower compared to Address and Datebook (the widest one). Resizing can only optimize the window sizes of Memo and Todo, but not the other two.
Under matchbox window sizing is just fine. The "Privacy" button and other stuff at the right edge can even get shrunk (not so good-looking but I'd prefer this way
) to fit the optimized window size.
Yet the bonus of running JPilot under xfce4 is being able to use the little precious space at the botton of the screen which is used up by the non-collapsable taskbar in matchbox.
Also I would like to know if there is a way to configure the sizes of the main window and the different panels manually. I've tried to changed the values of the window_width and window_height in .jpilot/jpilot.rc but restarting the app it somehow won't open with the specified dimensions. Opening up jpilot.rc there are new and seemingly random (and always bigger) values. Does this have to do with the pane values as well? What would be the best setting(s) to display all four views?
I'm just beginning to get more and more into JPilot. It's even sleeker, faster and more functional than fltdj, although it doesn't look as good. Being able to sync with a Fossil/Abacus Wrist PDA watch is the main reason why I clicked the 'confirm' button on ebay.
Still waiting for my Abacus (quite a lot of good bargains on ebay recently) to arrive. Hopefully it'll turn out to be a nice companion to my C1000.
