I would be surprised if I was the first to do so, but has anyone thought of, or actually tried, porting LaTeX and/or related apps to the Zaurus?

If I had an app like LyX (wordprocessor-like frontend for LaTeX) running on my Z - especially if it could output DVI files or even print direct to PDF - I would be one happy bunny, especially as I'd never have to go near Hancom Word again...

(with apologies to any HW fans out there smile.gif )

A port of LyX shouldn't be too hard - it would need a dedicated Qt-Embedded build though, because LyX needs RTTI and relies on Exceptions.
TeTex could easily be added to OpenEmbedded.

There have been two links posted to possible Zaurus ports of LaTex. I haven't heard whether either will work with OZ (or how well). It would be great to hear one way or the other.

I have installed LaTeX (using some previous
versions on the net). You can check out my
report on http://www.linguistics.ucla.edu/people/Kra...rus/zaurus.html. Downloads are mirrored there. This is done for pdaxrom, but should work for other installations too, as
far as I can see. I works great and fast.

Marcus, your Zaurus page at ucla.edu is not available. If this isn't a temporary glitch, could you mirror your report at another site or even replicate it here in this thread? Thanks! -manny

I could see it, so let me write it down
once again:

http://www.linguistics.ucla.edu/people/Kracht
/zaurus/zaurus.html

Alternatively: go to my homepage (first line
above; some people need to add a slash, or
add: /Index.htm at the end of the first line)
and then look at the bottom for a link for
the zaurus. That should get you there.

Sweet! Thanks Marcus for clarifying that. What's it like teaching electronic linguistics at UCLA? I'm just finishing my PhD in 17th century literary theory at Trinity in Dublin.

I actually contributed a discussion in the Software forum (under maslovsky's thread concerning porting QT3 Apps) asking for a port of Lyx before I saw this thread. Either way, I'll throw in my support behind anyone who wants to port this fine front-end.

Oh, and tawalker, I dont think there's _anyone_ here that actually _likes_ Hancomm Word (more like tolerates it). How good is a word processor that bogs down to near catalepsy while editing a 50k document?!

See this... Interesting, not ? smile.gif
But i don't think that is a good (small) solution.

For people asking for Lyx, I wonder if you have seen AUCTeX.
It is an indispensable part of typsetting mathematics and
now includes preview-latex, which I much prefer as a front
end for LaTeX since it gives me direct access to the underlying
LaTeX, while neatly rendering completed math sections until I enter
them again for more editing. I do this in emacs, so I am not
sure if this could be part of a 'small' solution. Not sure
if there is way to make it work with vim.
