You're welcome. I'm late too :-)

I know this comes late, but thank you.

Since last December I have resumed working on version 0.12 of toMOTko.  I'm wondering if there are still any toMOTko users left that are still using the application on the Zaurus?  If so, please show me a sign of life (either via this thread or PM me).

I visit the forum mostly everyday just to check if there are any new messages.  It takes less than a minute but my session is probably valid for 30 minutes I guess.  I think the other users that you see are probably just checking new messages like I do.  Of course, some of them must also be there to look for info I assume but maybe not that many.

That's great... Right now I have it installed on computers at work and at home, which gets into "version" issues (ensuring latest .xml or .rijn file, keeping "synced"), the ability to have and run off a USB stick on any computer would be great from a portability standpoint
P.S. You linked my IQN "review"

Here is the portable version.  

When building this version, I found at least one place where the application crashes systematically (when adding a note on a previous note the very first time).  I suspect that the bug is not in the application itself but rather in the version of Qt3 that I have used to build the application.  I may try once again to build the latest version of Q... eventually but it's not my priority so don't hold your breath.  I have already tried to build it and I failed miserably.  Anyway, I think that the application is usable enough.

Thanx, will give it a try...  One thought, on a Win box when opening a new file it expects it to be in a .iqnotes subdirectory in the User's directory on the PC. Any possibility of having this subdirectory be with the program files. This would allow it to be used as a "portable" app on a USB stick (vs. having to be installed on a particular PC)

I think that the default behavior is standard.  Usually, you want your personal data to be stored in your home directory.  Especially if you're sharing your computer with other people.  However, I could make a "portable" version of the application with the asked behavior.  It would be very convenient indeed and it's probably very easy to implement.  I will take a look in the week-end.

Thanks for your quick feedback btw.

Here is a new version that should fix the problem with Set Picture... feature.  The images must be PNG files and stored in the pics/iqnotes/items directory.  Please, tell me if it works on your side.

By the way, for anyone who cares, the updated source code can be found here.

I have also found this interesting blog entry about iqnotes. Glad to see that some users are happy about that.

When you do Note- Add Picture what directory is it expecting the files to be in???

A quick look to the code reveals that it should be in the directory pics/iqnotes/items of the application directory.  However, when I put image files there (gif, png, jpg or xpm), they are not shown in the dialog window...  I would need to check further.  Maybe this weekend.

I have been told that there was a missing DLL file in the archive so here a new one with the required DLL.

Also, here is the process I did to build the application:

Run "setenv.bat" that basically does this:

Code: [Select]
SET QTDIR=N:\Qt\qt-win-free-mingw-3.3.4

After that, I edit the file and change these 4 lines:

Code: [Select]
desktop:DEFINES = IQNOTES_PICDIR="\"pics\""
desktop:INTERFACES = p:\fred\iqnotes-2.1.0rc1\iqnotes\desktop\ui\*.ui
desktop:HEADERS += p:\fred\iqnotes-2.1.0rc1\iqnotes\desktop\qpe\*.h
desktop:SOURCES += p:\fred\iqnotes-2.1.0rc1\iqnotes\desktop\qpe\*.cpp
Then, I do:

Code: [Select]
cd iqnotes

Then, I edit the Makefile and replace "-lqt" by "lqt-mt".

I build the application typing "make".

For some mysterious reasons, the linking step may give some errors.  If I do "make clean;make", it usually works on the second time.  Go figure...

At this point, I should have a iqnotes.exe in the parent directory.  

I package the application manually in a directory that contains:
- iqnotes.exe
- qt-mt3.dll (taken from qt-win-free-mingw-3.3.4 directory)
- mingwm10.dll (also taken from qt-win-free-mingw-3.3.4 directory)
- pics folder (taken from iqnotes)

That's it!  I hope I have not forgotten anything.

Just for "fun", I decided to give it a try.

My first attempt was to try porting the whole application from qt-3 to qt-4.  I quickly realized that would require too much work.

On my second attempt, I tried to build the latest version of Q... (aka QTWIN: the port of qt3 for Windows) but it didn't work.

My third attempt was to use an old but existing and working binary version of Q... that I found on the Sourceforge download page.  After moving my cygwin installation away (because it was interfering somehow) and manually tweaking some config files, I managed to build a working Windows executable!  See the attached zip file. There was some warnings when compiling but it doesn't seem to bother anything.

I have not fully tested the application as I have never used it before.  Could someone familiar with the application provide some feedback please.

If it works fine, I will give more details about my building procedure

A few days ago, I was asked to build the IqHtml application on Windows in order to increase the default sketch size.  In order to do so, I ported the application on Qt-4.4.1 because I didn't know that Qt-3.x.y was available as open-source for Windows and also because I already had a working version of Qt-4.4.1 installed (and was too lazy to install another one :-).  

In case it interests someone else, you can find the source code and the executable here:

Absolutely. Every time I tap the icon there is a refresh of the screen as if it tried to open for a split second and then nothing. Not running either.

I had a similar problem before with a different application.  Rebooting the Zaurus fixed it.  I don't know if it will work in your case but it doesn't cost much to try it out.

I'm very glad the forums are back. So much useful information could have been lost...

Indeed.  Is there any ways to backup (or mirror) such a website?  I know it's not obvious because of the dynamic nature of the forum content, but I'm just wondering...

For N900 users, I have released tomotko 0.11.2-9fremantle1 in extras-devel  repository.  It's not completed yet but it's functional enough to be used.  Feedback is appreciated.

toMOTko for Maemo Fremantle looks awful and is unusable at the moment.  I'm working on hildonizing the interface.  You can follow up my progress on toMOTko's blog.
