Non-qt Gui On Pdaxrom Issues
« on: January 22, 2005, 06:23:07 am »
i moved to the recent pdaXrom (rc8).

i'm writing there gui using GTK.
the questions are:

there are inconsistencies with other pyhton-gtk code,
ie,   there's "no object named GtkXxxxxx" --- so i rename it to just "Xxxxxx" and it works.    
1. Why are these inconsistencies,
2. where can i get more info about it (e.g. object reference)
3. how to run "non-compatible" pygtk without change the code
4. there's a code (in "" project) that requiers a table object (GtkTableItem or somthing similiar).   that object doesnt exist in any way that i could imagine.   what's going on?  are there several pygtk set-ups?

is there a zaurus version out there? (couldnt find w google)

GUI builders for any gui-toolkit on the zaurus (yes, i know it's cpu-killer    but i'm dreaming, and i have no desktop machine right now to do my voodoo).
C860, pdaxrom rc8,
with Gnumeric as the perfect PIM :-)

Non-qt Gui On Pdaxrom Issues

I've run into the same issue myself on DarwinPorts (BSD-style software installation for OS X). My best guess (I havent' taken the time to look at it properly) is that the 'different' pygtk is a gtk-2.0 version. The old version wasn't really right in having all it's names prefixed with Gtk & expecting you to do a "from gtk import *". It's rather more logical to have the programmer do "import gtk" and "win = gtk.Window()" for example; less namespace polution & all that, and I wouldn't be surprised if they've took the change to gtk-2 (which will break a few things anyway) to make this major change.
Hardware: 'well-used' SL-5500; 1GB SD-Card; 128MB CF card
ROM: OZ GPE (Wanted to use OPIE but it locks up on suspend, X seems to fix it somehow. Found GPE more powerful than it first looked, if a little flakey.)
Considering: Putting together a ROM oriented towards scripting. Will probably be OZ based with X11.
