Hi,

I'd install X/Qt Server from http://xqt.sourceforge.jp/download.html.
If I start the server I get a grey screen with a cross cursor in the middle.
Pressing the menu key gives me the fullscreen/Help/shutdown function.
But - how can I start an applikatio ?
I installed blackbox and tried to start it from the terminal - the following message appeared :
> failed to set locale, reverting to "C"
> BaseDisplay::BaseDisplay: connection to X server failed

What's wrong ?

Can anybody give me (NEWBIE) a howto install X/Qt Server and
run apps with it ?

c760 with sharp rom

Thanx for any help !

Did you install the xqt-startup-scripts ipk?

If so which of the 2 icons did you use to start the server? X/Qt Server or Start X?

X/Qt Server - starts the Xqt server allowing you to connect to an external X server
Start X - starts a local X server and Xqt allowing you to run X prog on your Z

Hope that helps

Hi,

I just did install the xqt-startup-scripts ipk.
If I trie to start StartX a few seconds "please wait" appeares in portrait format and then it is canceld.
So I removed the marker from "...display with magified screen..."
If I touch the icon now - nothing happens...8-(...
What else could be wrong ?

Thanx for any help !

Try running the following from the terminal:

$ cd /opt/QtPalmtop/bin
$ ./startx-wrapper

See what it says.

Yes remove the dispaly with magnified screen mark - sorry should have told you that sad.gif

You may need to open a terminal and killall Xqt to get rid of any zombie processes and do as Lardman suggests and run startx-wrapper from the terminal.

report any error messages here and I'll see if I can help

Hi,
here is the result of startx-wrapper :

Use the -- option, or make sure that /opt/QtPalmtop/bin is in your path and
that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server
for your display. Possible server names include:

Hi,

problem persists...8-(...same result as above

Hmm, the fix above sorted it for me.

What packages have you installed (related to X that is :-)), and where?


Si
lardman
Are you running as root? If so do you have the .xinitrc file in your home directory (it is supposed to be installed in /home/zaurus but I had to copy it across as I'm using OZ and I run as root all the time).

Si

Hi,

I installed the following :
xqt-server
xqt-startup-scripts
xqt-fonts-75dpi-iso8859
xlibs_4
xbas-etc_4
glibc-locale-eucjp_2
xbase-client_4
blackbox

I installed all on internal memory.
I am root.
The .xinitrc file is in /home/zaurus.

Copy the .xinitrc file to /root/

Si
JoPeters
Hi !

I'm root but I can't do the copy :

# cp /home/zaurs/.xinitrc /root
cp: unable to open '/root/.xinitrc' : Read-only file system

Try running the script as zaurus.

If you want to run as root, then copy .xinitrc to /home/root/

It looks the same as in my first topic.

Well I think it looks better actually. See if you can work out what is causing this:

> QLibrary open failed!: /home/QtPalmtop/lib/libqsfepj.so, libkke.so.1: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

Actually I'd remove glibc-locale-eucjp_2 and install rxvt (I don't think you need that version of glibc, and xinitrc is looking to start a terminal after is starts up - as per the later error). Not sure that this will help you though :-)

Hi ther !

killing processes...

Thanks a lot to all people above who helped me to help myself !

Have a nice night !

Hi,
I'm also a Newbie that is stuggling with XQT, exept that I'm trying to run it on a SL-5500.
I have been able to start the X server with the RXVT terminal. The Problem is, that the screen is split horizontally, showing the RXVT terminal twice. The stylus doesn't work correctly and the screen is only updated when I switch back and forth betweeb Qtopia and XGT.

My first question is: Are these packages even meant to run on a SL-5500? From the little documentation I found about this server, I figured that it was able to run on various Zaurus models.

If it is possible to run XQT on my Zaurus, what do I need to do to set up the XQT server?

I'd really appreciate any help.

Hi Dirk,

>My first question is: Are these packages even meant to run on a SL->5500?

I don't know, but I think so.

>If it is possible to run XQT on my Zaurus, what do I need to do to set up >the XQT server?

Here's the way I did it on my c760, sharp rom :

I installed the following packages in these order to main memory :

1. xqt-fonts-misc
2. xqt-server
3. glic-locale
4. xbase-etc
5. xlibs
6. xqt-startup-script
8. xbase-client

Some of them also should run in SD but after several trouble I installed all to main.
After this you get two new icons on the app. screen:

X/QT Server - starts the X/QT server and enables a connection to an external X-server

Start X - starts a local X-server and enabled to run X-programs.

Start-X can also be startet from the terminal :

$ cd /opt/QtPalmtop/bin
$ ./startx-wrapper

If starting of the program fails - kill all the running XQt processes
before you run it again.

HTH...

Hi Dirk, myself and several other 5600
owners have shared the same problems.
In fact, I heard from no 5x00 users who
had xqt working so I uninstalled it and
hope it is someday updated.

I've installed Xqt on my SL5600 and I haven't got any issues... I'm using xserver v0.0.8
lardman
Worked fine on my sl5500.

Did you look at this thread: http://www.zaurususergroup.com/index.php?n...iewtopic&t=1515

I think you'll find that the vast majority are 5x00 users. In fact almost all as Cxxx users can just use the pdaXrom. I've no clue about the split screen problem which Dirk/hotwolf mentioned though.


Simon
hotwolf
thanks everyone for the help.
I still didn't get XQT to run, though. I tried the older xqt-server v0.0.8 and I got a segmentation fault everytime I ran the startx-wrapper.

I think I need do play around with it some more. There must be a reason why this package works for some people and not for others.
