Zaurus - pdaXrom / Graphical Login For Pdaxrom
« on: July 26, 2006, 10:09:26 am »
The ipk is ready. But I'm still having some problems with some apps. An X-session that is compatible with gdm as well as pdaX should be created by someone who knows a lot about x-session-options.
I just got back from a camping trip, so give me a few days.

Cheers Chero.... hope you had a nice time on your trip, bar your car woes ;-)
I'm happy to test this if you need some more input with the ipk, just let me know.

I've been using gdm for a while now without problems, one question though ->
How do you get it to remember which session was used last time?

I have to chose the session each time, as the default session seems to be gnome which of course fails..

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=129135\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

It should ask you to save the session you choose as the default one, or to leave the current default as it is. At least, that's how it works for me.

I created a new ipk (with all deps) and will upload it asap, but right now I'm testing some other rom, so please be patient.

Chero, any news on gdm ipk for those of us to lazy to do all the manual stuff

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Keep Pdaxrom Alive
« on: April 01, 2006, 06:08:20 am »
I don't mean to come off as overly pushy on this issue but i have decided because of my limited knowlege of linux, this is really the only way i am able to contribute. This is a great product, one that i would purchase if it were available for sale. I use it everyday as part of my business and am pleased with it's performance. I and my family operate an internet cafe and we are using the pdaxrom on three of our machines. No harddrives just live cds and it's working great. If we weren't a lan gaming room we'd run all our machines that way. So, thankyou and definitely keep up the good work.

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=121184\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
I don't mind if I come over as being pushy ;-)
I must admit - I haven't contributed till a couple of days ago after reading this page (but I am relatively new to pdaxrom).
as cycle_55 says - how much would you be prepared to pay to buy this software ? Most of us must have spare cash cos you wouldn't have bought a zaurus if you didn't have some... just think how much $50-100 means to this project and how much you'd spend on other software you 'needed' as much as pdaxrom....
in other words - get your hands in your pockets and thank the devs for making your zaurus such a fantastic bit of kit

How do you install it? As simple as installing the IPK?
Almost. According to  this post the ipk installs all the files into /opt/QtPalmtop. As this is not in your $PATH you may want to create a suitable symlink:
Code: [Select]
ln -s /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/mplayer /usr/bin

Just for clarity's sake, which mplayer version are you using from the cacko feed (bvdd-iwmmxt, bvvd...) ?
Might be handy for other pdaxrom users if we to post a link to it here.


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Announce: New Game Freedroid 1.0.2 - Commodore 64
« on: March 26, 2006, 01:20:19 pm »
Does sound work on this game ? If so can someone tell me what version of sdl-mixer
you have. Game works fine but no sound for me. Gives following error:
Error loading sound-file: Paradroid.ogg
SDL Mixer Error: Module format not recognized
 Continuing with sound disabled
I have sdl-mixer 1.2.5, libogg  1.1.3 installed ???



if anyone else has this issue you need sdl-mixer with ogg support & libs from this post.
Works fine now

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Power Management

The light goes off on my C3000 when battery is full...
Also you can run mb-applet-battery in xfce4 and e17 - you just need the appropriate systray plugin running.
[div align=\"right\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

Hey, could you please elaborate on that? Having the mb-applet-battery in xfce4 would be great!
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=119004\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

just load xfce4 systemtray into your panel and then run mb-applet-whateveryouwant ... they then appear in your panel... busy in work so no time for a lengthier response just now... same principal in e17 - run the systemtray plugin (not sure of exact name from memory... itasks maybe ?) and then run your mb-applets
have a look at screenshot in [a href=\"]this post[/url]
good luck

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Power Management
« on: March 17, 2006, 07:46:29 am »

I reverted back to running the default openbox WM and matchbox components a
day or so ago, for reasons outside the scope of this post.

I see the mb-applet-battery process running.  In fact I just turned on the 6000 to
make sure, and when I did, I noticed the battery meter go from about 75% to 100%
like it was "catching up" to the correct value after being resumed.

Q: How could the mb-applet-battery process affect (control)  the charging light
        while the Z is suspended?
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=118999\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

sorry I wasn't too clear - I'm not suggesting that mb-applet-battery has anything to do with the charging light - simply providing some feedback to this query.
Is there a reason why this does not function on pdaXrom? Is this true for all
the Zaurus models?

That was great info, thanks...

I forgot to ask about the battery charging light.  It seems that when I have power
connected to the SL-6000, when suspended at least, the battery charging light is
always on.  If I remember correctly, and it's been quite a while, but I think when I
got my unit and it was running  the Sharp ROM, the battery light would go off
when the battery was fully charged.

Is there a reason why this does not function on pdaXrom?  Is this true for all
the Zaurus models?

Thanks again for any info,  John

Chero, while I'm on about xfce4-panel, can you tell me how I can fix/configure stuff in the
--- include ---            system
menu entry in xfce4-menu's ? It works fine except games & system settings get mixed up (oh and no icon on 'other' submenu) - see screenshot
