Full Version: Project planning software
OESF Portables Forum > General Forums > General Discussion

I've been looking for some time now for some software that can produce Gantt charts for simple project management. What I really want is something where I can enter tasks, duration, and task dependencies, and get a Gantt graph showing the start times for each of the tasks.

I know that Project Professional exists, but I don't like the interface. What would be ideal, perhaps, is something a bit like Planner, (formerly known as Mr Project), but this is a Gnome app I think, so won't compile for Qtopia.

I've tried all sorts of other "programs". There's quite a lot of PHP groupware projects which produce Gantt diagrams but they require PHP with GD compiled, and this doesn't exist on the Zaurus as far as I know, so the diagrams don't work. Also this type of setup is slow and memory intensive.

I've tried numerous Java programs which can do project planning, but they all seem to require Swing. Does this exist on the SL-C860?

I've tried Python scripts (e.g. but they always seem to fail on something I haven't installed

I've found a Perl script,, but that only produces text output.

If nothing exists for Qtopia, are there any options for PdaXrom? (I've tried QtGantt -, but that's in alpha state.)

If anyone knows of anything which might work, I'd be grateful to hear from them.


Well, nobody has come up with any solutions, but I managed to get PyTaskplan to work - see

Hasn't anyone else tried to get any project planning to work on the Zaurus?
