Software for the SL-6000
« on: May 02, 2004, 01:01:40 pm »
Hey,

Someone started a similar thread, but what I am really trying to get at is of all the software out there, what is and isn\'t working for the SL-6000.  I\'ll start this out.

Works
- tkcExplorerC7xx
- kismit (with instructions from: http://www.zaurususergroup.com/modules.php...the%20SL-6000L)
- BlueZ drivers (works for Ambicom card, but not the Socket revG card)
- tkcEditorC7xx

Doesn\'t Work (at least for me)
kino2 (install, but will not play video)
qkonsole 9.3 (works, but not in vga mode)
tkcVideo

I think this is a good idea.  I would like to know what works and what doesn\'t without having to waste the time experimenting.  My experience is:

Works
- qkconsole ( with the limitations noted )
- JustReader ( but the number of formats is very limited, won\'t rotate )

Doesn\'t work
- kismet ( enough others have had success I must have screwed it up, I\'ll try again )
- kino2 ( installed but that\'s about it )
- opie-reader ( installed; worked for a while; then hung; had to reset to uninstall )
- qpdf2 ( installed; ran; but test leaves trask all over the screen )


I still have a Socket bluetooth card I can\'t use; anyone have any luck with that yet?

Qpdf2 is working fine for me.   The exact package I installed was qpdf2_no-render-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk.  There are several other versions available for download which I didn\'t try.  I even got it to work in 640x480 mode by editing the desktop icon shortcut.

The qpdf2 I loaded was qpdf2_2.00-20030725_arm.ipk.  I will try the other one.

Can you explain what you changed on the desktop icon to get 640x480 mode?

Thanks

I just copied the Display line from the built-in apps and pasted it into the Qpdf file.  All the desktop icons are in /home/QtPalmtop/apps/Applications.  The line looks like this:
Display=640x480,144dpi,480x640,144dpi

edit:  There\'s an easier way to do this.  If you tap and hold the icon, a screen comes up where you can disable the magnification.

:? Hey,

Has anyone gotten nethack to work on their 6K? I downloaded and installed it and the sound file. The program opens and presents the first screen. When I hit play it just dies (disappears back to launcher screen). Any hints?

TIA

SafeDee version 2.0.2 works on the 6000 in both portrait and landscape modes.
If you are running an earlier version of SafeDee, V2.02 is, as always, a free upgrade.
Regards,
Clive

Qconsole works fine in 640x480 mode (fonts are tiny of course) if you uncheck \"run magnified\".
It doesnt handle a suspend very well if you su to root, but that problem appears on the 5600 as well.

to get nethack to work

chown zaurus -R /home/QtPalmtop/games/lib/nethackdir/nethackdir

you also need to edit the nethack.cnf and change

QT_FONTSIZE=tiny
QT_TILEWIDTH=8
QT_TILEHEIGHT=11


to

QT_FONTSIZE=large
QT_TILEWIDTH=32
QT_TILEHEIGHT=32


so its not so small

I am now half way there - the drivers work but the connection applet only offers the Wireless and although I can force the issue by connecting and then disconnecting the wireless, the scripts still fail (and I have checked them against my 5500). Any ideas on how to debug these scripts?
