Zaurus - pdaXrom / Fvwm-pdaxrom 0.4.x
« on: March 21, 2006, 10:53:48 am »
Thanks for the nice extra feature! However, for some reason my taskbar stays on top in all "zoom-modes"... Apparantly it ignores "ZaurusTaskBar StaysOnBottom".
Why that?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Personal Rc9.1 Mods
« on: March 16, 2005, 01:40:21 am »
While we're all waiting for the next release, I just wanted to share my latest mods...

I found it somehow awkward that the applicaiton buttons launched a new program each time pressed. Therefore I changed the Openbox rc-fille, and now each button and silkscreen button represent a desktop. Now I always open kopi in desktop 4, kapi in 3 and so on. In that way I get a quick responding more pda-liike behaviour. I can still launch a new program by pressing fn+button/silkscreen.

Other mods:
fn-up/down: maximize/minimize
Ctr+alt+p: close program

I attached my rc.xml which i keep in /home/root/.config/openbox/

please note that this will override the custom made input setup-application the pdaxrom team made.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Wlan-ng
« on: January 22, 2005, 03:18:15 pm »
-just reflashed and solved my problems that way. Somehow I messed up the wireless drivers installing various packages. Now I realize that I didn't need the wlan-ng file anyway and everything's fine.

Can anyone please provide me with a copy of wlan-ng (/etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng) as it somehow (human error) got lost while i was trying to change my cf-wireless card to the hostap-drivers....


ps: have any of you been able to change drivers?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Kathrin RC8 Is Out..

thanks to the pdaXrom team for the new release. It made my christmas more than usual exciting.

A few random issues after a couple of days:

Running X as nonroot is still not fully functional: no sound availible - insuff. permissions for /dev/dsp apparently. Dillo is seq-faulting. Haven't explored further.

Aterm-applet sometimes produces a small empty window at the border of the display.

Right clicking with Fn not working on windows or panel but ok in mc

However this is banalities compared to the overall performance and functionality - keep up the good work!


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Mail LED flashing in console mode

Just noticed that after a while the green mail LED starts flashing outside X.

Anyone knows what that means?

My first impression is a great speed improvement. Everything seems alot snappier. Wonder how this will influence on batt. life...

Is it Vector FP or perhaps Virtual FP?

Thank you guys - this is great!

Hi CoreyC
I really like pekwm too - it's light and easy to configure
Just sent you a mail with some of my config-files.
Basically I just made small modifications to the standard-files in the packages. Nothing sophisticated. Would be happy to share it with others, though.

If you could find a way to host it and post a link that would be great.

Pekwm has no panel/taskbar - only floating menus. I configured the "home" key to bring up the root menu and the "menu" key to bring up the window menu. Moving windows is done by alt("Address") + Enter and arrows. Use shift + arrows for resizing. Accept window position and size by pressing Enter.

I also got the screen-rotation to work by running a small script that kills pypanel, runs "chkhinge"  and restarts pekwm when the screen is flipped over (the "Sys_Req" key).

You can try out yourself using "xev" to get the key-names and edit /home/root/.pekwm/keys.

I would have attached my own keys-file but apparently the new board does not allow that. I can email the file to you if you want.

Being a near-newbie myself, I got it working though, by editing the /home/root/.initrc file.
I commented the last lines mentioning matchbox out using a "#". Then I added "exec pekwm".

Furthermore I added "exec pypanel" to the pekwm start-script /home/root/.pekwm/start (just remember to "chmod +x /home/root/.pekwm/start" to make it executable.

For adding a desktop-image I used qiv. Installed

then added "qiv -z /home/root/whateverimage.jpg" to the pekwm start-script

For customizing pekwm the files in /home/root/.pekwm/ are almost self-explaining.
So is the /home/root/.pypanelrc ....

Good luck -Peter!

That did it.
With both pekwm and pypanel running I\'m very satisfied with the look of my pdaxrom right now!
Thanks again!

I recently got pekwm working for pdaxrom and I really like it. However I have been having some trouble getting pypanel to work. After installing the required packages and running pypanel I get this error msg:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File \"/usr/bin/pypanel\", line 586, in ?
    from Xlib import X, display, Xatom, Xutil
  File \"/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/Xlib/\", line 25, in ?
    import error
  File \"/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/Xlib/\", line 28, in ?
    from Xlib.protocol import rq
  File \"/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/Xlib/protocol/\", line 25, in ?
    import struct
ImportError: No module named struct

I have absolutely no python skills - what do I have to do to get it to work?

thx Peter
