C860 (or 7XX0) Top (most favorite) apps

I took your 2.0.17 octave build for ncurses 5.3 and built ncurses 5.4 and it ran just fine under the Cacko 1.18 ROM. I\'ve recently installed Cacko 1.21 (which included ncurses 5.0) and octave is complaining about:

octave: Symbol `PC\' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking

Maybe this is nothing, but I seem to recall that PC stands for \'program counter\' which keeps track of which instruction is being executed at any one time - this might be important?? It doesn\'t seem to have effected the way octave is running though.....

Glad someone\'s finding some use for it all :-)

I doubt this is anything too important, I\'d try installing a later version of libncurses on your Cacko machine (is that possible? Is the ROM writable? If not you\'ll have to check/alter LD_LIBRARY_PATH to get it in before the built-in version). Actually if it\'s working then don\'t worry too much.

The apps I use most are (in no particular order):  keyhelper,
Ko/PI, SafeDee, Opera, apache & phpwiki, ssh & unison.
And Froot (even though using it with C760 is kinda awkward).

I\'m still looking for a good and fast note taking application.
I have tried IQnotes, but I never got really comfortable with the
GUI.

lardman, I tried installing Octave from your web page.  I just got my hands on a C860 and am using the default Sharp ROM.  I haven\'t been able to locate \"less\" anywhere (the version on killefiz has broken links, the only version I have found is for a libncurses.so.5 and I have libncurses.so.4  - and I can\'t seem to make a symlink, it\'s read-only there...?)..

But besides that, my Z complains that the .ipk is corrupted.  I tried downloading it directly and also to PC first, then Z over USB.  Nada.

What should I do next?  Thanks...

Setup is a 760 w/ Cacko 1.21 ROM.

The killer app that keeps me from migrating permanently to pdaXrom is FreeNoteQT.
../.. The automatic export to pdf is also excellent.

Yes, it\'s a good app. but i have problem with pdf export. Text is coded in Japan, so acrobat (on windows) search the Japan caracters on the web to display my file ??
There is an update ??

@hg:

Hmm, not sure. I\'m pretty sure the ipk was of the tar.gz persuasion. I\'ll check.

Less for libncurses.so.4...... Let me take a look around.

Hmm, can\'t find a libncurses.so.4 version. Install version 5. If the worst comes to the worst then use this one here: http://sgp.zaurii.net/binaries/libncurses.so.5.3

Stick it in /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib and create symlinks from it:

libncurses.so.5.3 -] libncurses.so.5
libncurses.so.5 -] libncurses.so

The ipk seems fine to me. Make sure you can rename it to .tar.gz and open it on the PC. If not then the PC has either decided to corrupt or partially uncompress it, etc.

lardman,
Thanks for the tips, I\'ll give it another try!  I\'m brand new to the Zaurus world, so I\'m sure I\'m just doing some stupid things.  I\'ll let you know how it goes (and probably ask more questions).

@lardman:

The newest package 2.1.57 of octave installed ok for me, but the older ones wouldn\'t.  Anyway, after installing libreadline I think I need \"libgcc_s.so.1\" still, but I can\'t seem to locate that.  I found a suggestion to install a package from OZ 3.3.6-pre1 feed... do you have a suggestion?  Thx again..

Try StageOne. It is commercial but not expensive and it is a delight. Similar to IQnotes but much nicer. You can get a free trial download so give it a spin.

I use tkcEditor all the time to edit perl, which I then run using the Zaurus perl build from http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/ ... but I\'d love anyone to tell me of a better text editor which works on the Cacko ROMs and has syntax colouring and multiple file support (i.e. you can open more than one file at a time). I suppose another application on the list for me is QKonsole even if it does crash when you wake up the Z.

Using the C860 for perl coding makes it probably the single most useful (and already cost-effective) thing I\'ve ever owned - I basically salvage 1-2 hrs of commute time which would otherwise be almost wasted.

Ian.

Now that I\'ve had my C860 for a couple of weeks, I\'m getting to grips with the various apps that are available. The ones that I\'m using every day are:

KO/Pi - Totally indispensable as far as I\'m concerned.
Address Book - Still using the one in the Cacko Rom so far. It\'s actually not too bad, but I\'m looking forward to the KA/Pi one later in the year.
Stage One - I love this app for meeting notes and jotting down thoughts.
Tree Explorer QT - The best File Manager I\'ve found
Textmaker - I\'ve been a TM fan for quite a while and I was pleased to see that the bata version for Zaurus arrived just as I got my Z. Simply a great full featured word processor.
Hancom Sheet - one of the default apps but better than Hancom Word. I\'ll use it until something better comes along.
JustReader - I have many books in Mobipocket format and JR is excellent for reading them. I have a slight problem with it crashing on start-up from time to time that I\'m hoping to find a solution for.

I\'m also experimenting with the different music players, not sure which I like best so far. I\'ve also recently installed FreeNoteQT but have not had the chance to figure out if it\'s something I need or not yet. I got my wireless card working too (thanks to information in the forums) so I need to get browsers and email sorted before too long.

Cheers!

About the FreeNoteQT, when I installed the most recent one on my SL-C860, it works great but the screen loses pixels and it can only work in portrait mode. When I got o the Qtopia menu button, the option to change from landscape to portrait vise verca is gone. I\'ve expiereienced this with the Adobe viewer in the cd. Any way to fix this?

Thanks

Rikiya,

You are running it in magnified mode!

Tap-hold the FreeNoteQT icon and uncheck the magnified box.

The same holds for any app that starts in portrait mode (and greys out the rotation option).
