The best console app so far
« on: February 04, 2004, 06:48:21 pm »
Check out this console app :-

http://killefiz.de/zaurus/showdetail.php?app=1667

It is totally awesome!

On the cxx0, you can use the fn_1/fn_2  keys to zoom in and out from the smallest font possible right upto \"/home/zaurus\" taking up half the screen!

You can also go full screen by clicking an icon.  it is suposed to go fullscreen with fn-5, but I can\'t get this to work with the cacko rom, maybe fn_5 is remapped in this rom???

Either way, to finally get a full screen shell is now possible, makes all my character based apps (slrn) work so much better.

This is the dogs b*ll*cks, if the author reads this, then well done mate, a fine piece of code!

I don\'t know if it works on the sl5x00 range, I may try it later on my 5500.

Someone has used on a 5600, so a 5500 should be fine.  I\'m happy with my tabbed opie term.

I just noticed, it\'s the same guy that did qpdf2.  Another awesome app.

I like the opie term too, but there\'s one thing that really bugs me about it (at least on the Sharp ROM):  The menu key doesn\'t work.  It\'s very annoying because I can\'t switch fonts or tabs without pulling the stylus out.

If it had uft8 support THEN it would be the best app ever - at present it is a very good improvement over the standard embeddedkonsole, but the tw version is still my current favorite due to the ability to change encoding.

i\'ve managed to use it on my 5500 with OZ 3.3.5.

It works good enough, even if it has some weirdness with fonts... Ah, BTW, i had to manually create /dev/ttya*

mknod /dev/ttya0 c 3 176; mknod /dev/ttya1 c 3 177 ;mknod /dev/ttya2 c 3 178 ... and so on... but i suppose it is an OZ bug...

Looked good until I tried editing a file with vi: ESC (Cancel) caused qkonsole to exit and left my vi session hanging!!

fn+del seems to work for getting out of insert mode in vi.  I also noticed it toggled upper and lower case as well.
I'm now an iphone user and use my zaurii as serial terminals, perl and shell scripting and when I need 640x480 screens

I had not tried vi, so was unaware that the cancel button (esc) quit the app.

I also use autocomplete a lot wich is two esc\'s.  Hmm that does lower it\'s usability somewhat.

woops!  FN+Cancel seems to be the answer to the esc character

Don\'t mind my previous posts in this thread.  I think I\'ve been at work too long.  None of those key combos are the true answer

Doesn\'t seem to work for me on the cacko rom on my 760.  It still exits the app.

I have mailed the author about this, I don\'t see what is so hard about typing exit.

I like the fnc+n for a new terminal, and fnc+s to switch between them.

Even if you do have another key mapped for esc, I don\'t like the fact that accidentally pressing cancel just dumps the whole lot.

I will let you konw when he replies.


Edit,   I have just discovered that cancel works as escape just fine when in full screen mode.  This is probably why I didn\'t discover this earlier.

I like the fulscreen mode, and only really use it in this mode anyway.

The author, hadn\'t noticed this as he uses it fullscreen too, he has fixed the problem and emailed me a new ipkg to test which seems to be working fine.

Peter,
Do you know when he will be posting the new ipk? I have the same esc problem and want to keep using Qkonsole.

Thanks,
Burao

Yes, and ctrl-d is even easier...
