I've been looking for a taskswitcher program for my SL-5600 and found Tasklist applet 1.0.5, but unfortunately the download link is broken. (http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/showdetail.php?app=1134) Anyone knows where could I download it or any other taskswitching program? Thanks in advance.

Here is the sourceforge page for both sub applet and tasklist applet:

Many thanks, JP! If there were a keyboard-based taskswitcher...

Don't know of any keyboard-based taskswitcher. Sorry

For a keyboard-based switcher, you can try KeyHelper, a keyboard remapping program that just happens to also have a built in taskselector. There is a link to it and some information on setting it up available at: http://viz.aset.psu.edu/ga5in/SharpZaurus.html

I use it on my C760. I'm not sure if it will work on the 5600 or not, but it's worth a shot. The keycodes for the 5600 are probably different, so you'll have to find a list of them, or you can try the KeyHelperConf app, which is available at: http://yakty.s31.xrea.com/linuzau/keyhelperconf/ (warning: Japanese page).

Just a quick mention - I included the task switcher functionality from Keyhelper in the latest version of IRK (v0.11.0).

Just got around to installing keyhelper on my 5600 and it works great. The Shift+Menu and Shift+Home for task switching is really good (Don't know how they get a list of visible apps, but it works!) as does the Home+key app launching. Feels like the hacks on my old Handspring again smile.gif

Thank you to whoever updated the links on killefiz.de.... looked at the source for keyhelper and its a far more reliable method of finding out what's running.... might see if I can get round to updating the TaskList applet to use the same method.

I've put a beginners guide to keyhelper in the howto area http://www.zaurususergroup.com/modules.php...0to%20KeyHelper

I will add all the menu and other advanced stuff later this week, let me know if there is anything wrong or if you think something needs to be added
