C860 (or 7XX0) Top (most favorite) apps
« on: April 15, 2004, 07:33:38 pm »
I am trying to setup my C860 as fast as possible so I am wondering...What are your favorite Apps for your clamshell unit.

I just migrated to the Cacko QT rom, so please note which rom you are using (and if the app(s) would run on the QT rom, if you happen to know).

Thanks.

KeyHelper, Portabase, KanjiNirvana, Zten, Opie Reader, Ko/PI, QKonsole, ZEditor, Tree!Explorer QT, Opera 7 and Cacko Sysinfo with mount tab added are apps I use daily.

tkcPlayer (as long as you don\'t mind the occasional crash and are willing to pay cash), ZSafe and IQNotes are also usefull.

All of these run on Cacko 1.21, but I\'m currently using Standard Sharp Qtopia (for Japanese Support)

tkcPlayer is no longer needed as such, as the new Cacko ROM includes the Media Player from the 6000, which includes ogg playback.
Left Linux and Linux PDAs... sorry, got boring.  Switched to Mac.

Yeah true, but I haven\'t gotten around to getting it from the Cacko rom to use on the Standard rom and I\'ve already paid for tkcPlayer.

Just wondering, what you would be losing from Japanese support if you switched ROMs.  Actually, I want to play around with some of the ROMs out there but Japanese support (most notably the CRIM) is essential for me at the moment.

You would lose the CRIM, Sharp SLjisho dictionary, translator (if you have C860) and most importantly Fonts - the Cacko rom repalces the Japanese helevetica fonts with European helevetica fonts, meaning that you will get boxes instead of kanji. You can reinstall the fonts of course but I find it easier to just add the parts I want from the other roms to the working Japanese base.

I highly recommend Zten and KanjiNirvana (KaNi) if you need/want Japanese support.

lardman, what\'s Xqt? I would say \"a X layer over Qt\", but it\'s kinda weird :-)

BTW, my own preferred apps are IQnotes, portabase, Zeditor (if only it implemented word wrap at word level and iso-8859-1 support!), ZSafe, Konsole, QashMoney, TabSetting and KeyHelper.

ciao, .mau.

It allows you to run X in a Qtopia window. Take a look here:

Octave,  
gnuplot

Same Here. I\'ve managed to build my own gnuplot ok, and am using Simon Pickering\'s octave build from http://sgp.zaurii.net/binaries/index.html#Octave

Is this the one you\'re using, or do you know of another source (utimately I wan\'t to build my own, but first I need to set up a f77 toolchain......) I appear to have some minor \"linking\" issues with Simon\'s.

Setup is a 760 w/ Cacko 1.21 ROM.

The killer app that keeps me from migrating permanently to pdaXrom is FreeNoteQT.

http://www.urban.ne.jp/home/kanemori/zauru...freenote_e.html

I\'ve been using this to take lecture notes all this year, and now I can\'t live without it. The best feature of any freehand note taking app I\'ve ever seen is the ability to have a canvas that grows to whatever size you need it on the fly. There\'s quite a few other unique ideas that make drawing neat and easy (excellent for those maths lectures where you are constantly sketching functions). The automatic export to pdf is also excellent.

Does anyone know of anything comparable that runs under X?

I am Simon Pickering BTW.

No I\'m using 2.1.57 which is the latest unstable version. I\'ll package it up and update the web site this weekend (I\'ve also made packages of the bits and bobs on there rather than my favourite tarball method ;-)).

The details on how to build toolchains are in the Linux Applications section of the forum. I rebuilt the OZ gcc3.x, libc2.3 one to have F77, I\'ve also rebuilt the pdaXrom toolchain (GCC3.x and libc2.2) which should hopefully be able to build binaries which will run on any machine with any ROM. This is what I plan to test this weekend.

What are the particular linking issues you\'re having? To do with libncurses as ever?

Ha. Nice/Glad to meet you! I\'m really gratefull for the goodies on your webpage and will definitely appreciate an update to octave 2.1.57!!!

This Easter break has been a godsend and I\'m trying to catch up on 6+ months worth of zaurus SL-Cxx0 development.

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.....

I will check out the docs on building toolchains.. thx

under cacko qt .. I like opera in fullscreen and terminal so I can ssh out to irc/im ...

I also enjoy the qt nethack

Scott
ps: when travelling, I also like to have mp3s playing.  that is, on a plane, a CF of mp3s can replace the wifi that is normally used for opera.
