Asus Eee PC / Asus 3epc
« on: November 09, 2007, 08:47:55 am »
I just took delivery of one of an EeePC (for my wife) - it's really very cool. Reminds me of the clamshell Zaurii when I first saw them.

I'll be honest and say it kills the Zaurus dead in terms of the software/hardware support. A quick play with it showed that vast amounts of standard linux apps came pre-installed as standard (kde's PIM stuff, Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice, Acrobat Reader, etc) - and all configured and working. YouTube video worked first time, suspend just worked, WIFI was easy, sound + video playback  - the list goes on....

It's roughly twice the size of a clamshell Z. But I have to say, it wipes the floor with it.

And this is me, long time Zaurus fanboy (SL5500, SL6000, etc) talking. I'd still keep an SL series Z for reading ebooks on the move, but beyond that, I don't see a reason to own the clamshell Zaurus anymore - the Eee is just too well done, and astonishingly cheap.

actually I would like it to be able to 'see' hidden files

Now that's an easy one - done, available in the next release (at the same time as the source..)


I did port Castaway to the Zaurus a few years ago - it only worked in lo-res mode due to the small screen I had on my SL5500 at the time, and wasn't that fast, but it did work well enough to boot the GEM desktop and run a few games....

Soon. I'm not being deliberately bad about the sources, simply haven't got round to it yet...

How is it looking, I'd like to try to rebuild it too.

From my perspective, it has three "flaws"

1. No php syntax highlighting
2. No UTF-8 support - serious
3. Many input methods on the Z don't work with it, i.e. the default Sharp kanji handwriting, QPOBox, etc.

Same as above - sources when I get the time. And sorry, being a typical Englishman I don't speak any other languages so UTF-8 and japanese input methods are beyond me....

Try downloading it from my website instead - the forum keeps renaming files...

Well, couldn't resist after's version 1.0.3.
Changes (1.0.2 -> 1.0.3):
- Highlight mode auto-select based on filename when you save.
- Manually selectable highlight mode.
- Visible indentation guides.
- Optional calltip's display.
- Visible whitespace.
- Tab Size setting.
- New view options panel, replaces most of the toggle's in the View menu.
- Load Scintilla .api files to generate call tips and code completions. I've packaged the "c.api" file for the standard C library in the IPK - but there's quite a few more kicking around (the full Java one is a bit big - but the Perl one is quite reasonable). You can put any additional .api's in the directory /opt/QtPalmtop/etc/SimpleEdit, and they'll load in on startup.

I'm a bit disillusioned with the Z today (well, a minority of the people involved - see this thread) so I think I'll take a break from the forums (and Open Source in general) for while.

Might get round to looking at things again in a few weeks time.

Gates of zendicon and zarlor mercenary on my zaurus ?
it's sad but that makes me happier than getting the gta iso to run on my psp (who buys games ???)

And as an old atari user magazine hack it makes me happy to see the stuff's still going :-)

As one of the guys responsible for GTA on the PSP is my oldest friend, and was best man at my wedding (John Li - you'll find him in the credits screen of GTA), I can honestly say that you disgust me, and I hope you get banned from this forum and the ass sued off you for being dumb enough to post shit like that publicly.

I didn't build in a lot of the lexers for languages that Scintilla supports to cut down on the binary size of SimpleEdit (small size == faster loading). But as people have asked for it - I've enabled some of the extra languages. A new version (1.0.2) is now available which supports syntax highlighting for the following languages:
Perl (*.pl)
Python (*.py)
HTML (*.htm,*.html)
Java (*.java)
C/C++ (*.c,*.cc,*.cpp,*.h,*.cxx)
JavaScript (*.js)

Guess that sorts everyone out now......

I just tried it on my old SL-C860 (running Cacko 1.23), don't particular need it since I use SciTE on my OpenBSD SL-C3000 now but this was just the sort of thing I wanted at one time for Qtopia.

it doesn't seem to give the highlighting or code folding... are the lexers specifically omitted or installed from another package?

Also one small thing is that it doesn't install an .desktop file.

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=120470\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

Oops - left the .desktop file out of the IPK. New version (1.0.1) uploaded now (exactly the same, but it now installs the missing .desktop file).

The lexer's for C/C++ and JavaScript are built in (auto-selected based on file extension). I left out the others to reduce the size of the binary (I didn't need them). I guess I can do a build with the others included if there's any demand.

The code folding is turned off by default - turn it on by selecting the menu option View->Folding.

Oh yeah - I would have entered this on ELSI, but to be honest ELSI is to much of a mucking about.....I miss the old ZSI.

First release of SimpleEdit just uploaded to My Webpage .
This is a fairly basic programmers text editor for Qtopia on the Zaurus.
It uses the Scintilla editor widget (via the QScintilla wrapper) for it's underlying edit widget, and as such supports folding, search/replace & code completion.
Also has multiple tabs, splitable views, syntax highlighting, undo/redo, keyboard shortcuts, etc.

Try it out - I reckon it's not bad - better than tkcEdit anyway (has keyboard shortcuts for those of us with IR/USB keyboards anyway).<br>

I've only tried this on the SL6000 - any feedback appreciated.

(I know we don't really need another editor for the Zaurus - I really just wanted one that did the stuff I wanted it to)

How exactly do you use me2se to run Opera-mini? I'm not very familiar with using Java on the Zaurus.....
