Handwriting ?
« on: June 16, 2004, 06:58:13 pm »
Ok I have it for weeks in my sign but still did\'nt asked ...
Well ... I\'m not a linux guru and I bought my Z thinking I would perfectionate by using linux everytime ... what I did , BUT , a major problem for me in the x11 roms is the lack of any handwriting app ... So I wonder if there is any opensource handwriting app which can be ported to work with pdaXrom ? or even something like FreeNoteQt as the touchscreen is good enough for me to re-read myself ?
SL-C3000 - pdaXrom 1.1.0Beta1
SL-C860 - pdaXrom 1.1.0 RC8 (charging circuitry dead :( )
CF RamStar 512 Mb / Hitachi 4Gb microdrive (thanks to creative's muvo² :p)
SD Sandisk 1Gb / Viking 256 Mb
Linksys WCF13 CF wifi card

Anyone willing to donate for my work, please consider donate to pdaXrom and/or OE/OZ projects instead, I wouldn't have been able to do anything without them ...

Why do you need a nandwriting when the portrait mode doesn\'t work perfectly? So you have to work in landscape mode where you always have a hardware keyboard....

Am i missing something?

well ... landscape mode is working good enough for me and even if it dont, you can still use the Z closed up even in landscape mode (more convenient while walking IMHO)

That's brilliant, thanks Scott!  I just added the jabbath feed to my ipkg, installed xstroke, and it worked perfectly.  Took me a little while to realise I had to click on the titlebar of an application to write in it though!
