Tuxcards 1.2 And Sticky Notes 1.1.5
« on: October 25, 2005, 11:00:59 am »
Hi, there,

As a token of thanks and my humble contribution, here are two handy apps for X, TuxCards 1.2 and Sticky Notes 1.1.5, which I compiled lately.  

Special thanks to Chero for his great teaching and advice.   Your Z home page is yet another chapter in my "Zaurus Bible" collection.    

I compiled both with pgas' "Qt-enhanced" zgcc-3.3.2.img from http://zaurus.spy.org/feeds/cacko/pdaXrom/misc/pgas/gcc-qt/ (the current 3.4.4 seems to lack uic and moc, which are necessary for make) .  pgas, you're darn cool!    

Some notes below.

================================================================
1. TuxCards 1.2:
-- Source file here: http://www.tuxcards.de/requirements.html

-- In the process of compiling, before using pgas' zgcc, make sure the qt dir is symlinked correctly, as described in https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11588&hl= , post #12 (thanks Chero for fishing this out).  

-- A funny story: I followed the original readme of zgcc-3.3.2 and symlink without the "qt" (as reminded by pgas later in that post).   But I could compile successfully with this funny combination of export:
Code: [Select]
# export QTDIR=/usr/local/qt/qt
# export QMAKESPEC=/usr/local/qt/qt/mkspecs/default
# export QT_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/qt/lib
Why?  My funny findings:
The directory "armv5tel-cacko-linux" is in /usr/local/qt, not /usr/local/qt/qt;
The directory "gccv-lib" is in /usr/local/qt, again not in /usr/local/qt/qt;
"make" is only found in .../qt/bin, not .../qt/qt/bin;
but "moc" and "uic" are inside /usr/local/qt/qt/bin, not in /usr/local/qt/bin;

-- "install DESTDIR=... make" doesn't apply in this case.  The files still make install to the main memory anyway.  Actually I was using a foolish way to put things together by copying /usr/local/bin/tuxcards and /usr/local/doc/tuxcards/flowers/* to the data part for creating data.tar.gz.

-- Chero discovers that when this .ipk is installed in cards, all symlinks are like this: "/mnt/card//usr/local/...".   Launching it this way will get segmentation fault.  Fix this by manually re-linking the "flowers" files after installation and it runs just as fine.  Installing it to the main memory does not have this issue.

-- In case someone is looking for libGLU.so.1, install mesa3d_6.2.1-1_armv5tel.ipk and things will go fine.  

-- What's surpring to me is this compiled version opens with the proper window size, so no more drag and resize.

-- The encryption and history functions are very welcome additions indeed (kudo to the author).  Check them out.  The only minor catch is the new function buttions will force the original two neat tool bars into three and leave some empty space unused.  I tend to drag the tool bars to the sides and they sit there beautifully.    

================================================================
2. Sticky notes 1.1.5

-- Source file here: http://freshmeat.net/projects/snotes/

--  I was told that xfce has got a nice a notes-plugin.  But since I am still sticking with matchbox so I need a post-it app so badly.  Being so used to post-its I've got them everywhere: in my pockets, in my inbox, and even on my ibook (Stickies).  So why not my Z?    

-- It's compiled from the latest build (just released on 10 Oct 05).

-- The source seems not to have included a desktop icon.  I just picked one up from a pool of free icons.  Sorry for my poor taste.

-- Some tips for use:
Upon first startup there is a very tiny yellow squrare somewhere in the upper left quarter of the screen.   Alt + hold can drag it anywhere.  It will stay in the new position even after relaunching.
To start playing, simply right click (fn-tap) it.
Snotes will automatically create a dir ".snotes" under /home/root.  A great feature is all the notes are saved just as plain texts in the dir.

================================================================

I'm just a linux dummy.  So don't hesitate to point out any mistake I made here.  
I find the compiling process very fruitful and have gained some hands-on experience.  Plus doing native compilation on Z is great fun, isn't it?    

See if the packages suit your needs.   Enjoy!

Tuxcards 1.2 And Sticky Notes 1.1.5

Hi,

32 downloads and not one reaction ?    

I'm really getting to like tuxcards 1.2.
As for sticky notes, I guess I'll stick to the notes in xfce, but it seems a great app for non-xfce-users.

Thanks,
Chero.

Hello,
thanks a lot for your work. I use matchbox and I really missed an app like sticky notes. It is a must have to take notes quickly and it runs perfectly on my Z 760 / rc11.
Thanks again

pdaxrom rc 11 on c1k -- tuxcards segfaults but snotes works ok.  I'm tempted to look into what would be necessary to make stickynotes a matchbox applet.  That tiny icon isn't too easy to find with a picture as your background :-)

did you install tuxcards on / or on sd/cf ?
If you installed on sd/cf, there is a solution :
The symlinks of the flower files are probably : /mnt/card//usr/local/... (notice the "//"). If you change them to /mnt/card/usr/local/... (one "/"), it will work ok. I simply deleted the "flowers"-dir on / and symlinked it to the one on sd. (that's only one link to make instead of 30)

Sorry about that ...  

Did you install tuxcards to main memory or card?  During testing Chero got the seg fault on card whereas I got no issue in main memory.  What about those who downloaded it?  Just wanna know if any one of you also get the seg fault error.
Thanks.

Glad you like them... Sorry for the symlink issue coz I'm a very newbie.

So did you get seg fault when installing in main memory or card?

I only had segfault when installing to "/mnt/card" or "/mnt/user" (I didn't try "/mnt/cf").

Thanks, Chero & zdevil... I re-installed to main memory (it was in user) and it works great.  Sorry, I should have read your initial post :-)

Looks like a nice tool, I'll have to explore it a bit.  Thanks for the packages!

A few updates:

TuxCards 1.2

-- Here is a set of alternative icons take from the original site: http://www.tuxcards.de/requirements.html
Simply unpack it anywhere, specify the path under "Look & Feel" in Option > Edit Options > General.  Restart TuxCards and the new icons are there.

-- Grab this greeting file (a kinda intro + readme) in case you want it:


 [ Invalid Attachment ]   (Note: This is not a real IPK -- can't upload the file with the original extension.  Simply remove the .ipk extension and put it in /home/root or anywhere you want.)

============================================================

Sticky Notes 1.1.5

I guess some users will find the launch yellow icon too tiny to use.  Here is a trick:
In the terminal add an option like this:
Code: [Select]
snotes -geometry 24x24And the icon will appear with 24 x 24 pixels.  You can specify any size as you like (I find 24x24 the best value).    

If you want to recompile it from source, add the line resize(n,n); in snotes.cpp, as here:
Code: [Select]
int Snotes::run() {
    updateConfig();
    
    resize(32,32);

    show();
Then it will get compiled nicely with pgas' zgcc-3.3.2.img.
Many thanks to the author (Jørn V. Christensen) for the tip, and writing this cool app!

In rc12, ipkg (ipkg-link) creates the links with one / and not 2 //, so hopefully this is not an issue anymore.

Hi there,

Perhaps some of the users of Sticky Notes find the startup icon too small to see/tap/use.
So I recompiled it and made 4 different flavors to suit the different tastes of the users:

1) snotes_1.1.5_armv5tel.ipk: The original version.  You can freely adjust the size of the startup icon by running it in the terminal with the option -geometry NxN.  For example, snotes -geometry 24x24 will render the icon with 24x24 pixels.
2) snotes_1.1.5_12p_armv5tel.ipk: The version with a fixed 12x12 startup icon.
3) snotes_1.1.5_24p_armv5tel.ipk: The version with a fixed 24x24 startupicon.
4) snotes_1.1.5_36p_armv5tel.ipk: The version with a fixed 36x36 startup icon.
The tradeoff of the fixed size versions is that you cannot readjust the startup icon any more with the -geometry option.
Otherwise the method of use remains the same across the versions.

Thanks go to JVC for writing this handy app and his suggestions during my compilation.  

All the 4 versions, plus the documentations, are put into one package which is already uploaded to the very first post.  Enjoy!

Sorry got no intent to bring this thread up again,
but today I discover one very interesting (and very useful) behavior of Sticky Notes:
You can drag the startup icon even to the panel at the bottom!  When it's there it simply looks and acts like a panel icon (actually not of course   )
So this startup icon will never get in the way again, plus you can change its location to anywhere you like.
Enjoy!  

[Edited: Sorry, this trick doesn't play perfectly.  By panel here I refer to the one in matchbox.  If the snotes startup icon stays in the panel while you tap on the proper panel icons, the panel seems to freeze a bit and you have to kill snotes to make things come back to normal.  Moving the startup in temporarily without launching things in from the panel, and then moving it out is fine, though.]

I installed the tuxcard_1.2_arm5tel.ipk from this thread on my RC12-C860 and have some libs-problems.
I created a sym-link:
ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
Trying to start tuxcards I've got the error-message:
tuxcards: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5: version 'GLIBCPP_3.2' not found (required by tuxcards)
tuxcards: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5: version 'GXXABI_1.2' not found (required by tuxcards)

Any idea how to fix it?

Best regards
