Full Version: Good File Browser- Konqueror (compiling), Or?

I really like the Zaurus c3100 (and the cacko ROM) but I am not a big fan of the default file browser at all.

Anyone know of any good file browsers to stick on the Zaurus? Maybe it will help me avoid the following pain I will describe next?

I am a fan of konqueror myself. I would like to stick konqueror-embedded on the Zaurus. Unfortunately, I have yet to find konqueror that is in a *.ipk format. All I have found are tar.bz2 releases which one has to compile.

I have the konqueror3-embedded-0.2.20060121 package I am trying to compile. Using './configure --enable-qtopia' on the zaurus, I keep getting a 'check for kde-config... not found' error. I have the kmicrolibs on my Zaurus...so I am not sure what I need to do to solve this problem?

So next, I tried to cross compile konqueror on my Linux PC. I used the following options with configure:

[freyguy@localhost konqueror3-embedded-0.2-20060121]$ configure --target=xscale --build=xscale --enable-static --enable-qtopia --enable-printing

After typing 'make' things seemed to be going well until:

make[6]: Entering directory `/home/freyguy/Desktop/zaurus download packages/konqueror3-embedded-0.2-20060121/konq-embed/kdesrc/kdecore'

ar: /home/freyguy/Desktop/zaurus: No such file or directory
make[6]: *** [libkdecore.la] Error 9

Anybody know why ar cares about a 'zaurus' directory above my working directory:

/home/freyguy/Desktop/zaurus download packages/konqueror3-embedded-0.2-20060121

if you don't mind using an older version of konqueror instead of the latest bleeding edge release, then you can use konqueror_snapshot_20020311_arm.ipk

The only place I can find konqueror_snapshot_20020311_arm.ipk is
http://www.linuxdojo.net/zaurus/feed/

which I get an error that says I do not have permission to enter the site sad.gif

I found a link for it at:
http://hpcgi2.nifty.com/taku2001/zau/texplorerqt/top_en.cgi

has version 1.76 which I guess is the latest version.

I just installed it. I get those squares on my zaurus, which I guess is due because my zaurus machine is missing the capability to display that appropriate character (I guess I do not have the right font or character setting somewhere).

BUT, besides that, looks promising! Thanks for the software tip!

I hope anyone else with ideas on file manager/browser solutions continue to chime in...it would be interesting to here what else is out there.

Have you tried selecting English language form the menu?
