Hello,

Most applications are basically a nightmare right now on my SL-5500, because in Matchbox I can't access most of the window, and in twm I'm incessantly dragging things around to see.

I know from the debian "pocketworkstation" thing that it's possible to use some form of VNC client to view the GUI with zoom and pan options, so... is there any feasible way to do this with pdaXrom?

If there are any alternate ways to zoom/pan or better deal with my screen size problem, I would appreciate any info on those as well.

Thanks.

I know that on my SL6000, which I mostly use in portrait mode, some window managers (e.g. xfce4) do a lot better job of sizing and positioning windows than others (e.g. matchbox).

That would be great... if... any other window managers were available for the 5500. As far as I can tell, there aren't.

I've looked that the main feed and the user contributed feeds and searched the forum, and I can't find any other window managers for the SL-5500.
