Re: About QtMoko future

 qtopia = qt extended = qt extended improved = QtMoko

 From technical point of view QtMoko is using regular Qt as framework for GUI,
 networking and other nice features that Qt supports. Qt is just compiled with
 custom configure switches. We can upgrade Qt from upstream and receive new Qt
 features quite easily.

Great to hear that! I obviously thought Qt Exte... QtMoko is more
stuck in the Qt 4.4 time than it it is in reality. Sounds pretty
great, maybe actually at some point QtMoko or some part of it could be
pushed back to upstream as part of the ongoing improvements in the
Open Governance model :) Especially if there is something that would
help maintaining QtMoko in the longer term.

For what it's worth... a bunch of folks and me have just started
working on a new featurephone-client (expect a formal announcement
later this week) which is going to use QML, so we can perhaps share
some Qt code.

Cheers,

  hi,
  i have the latest qtmoko (35) installed on my freerunner. i also have
  tanggogps installed, used via QX.
  
  the problem is, when i run tango, it only uses 3/4 of the screen
  
  then, if i hit 'info' to show the config, etc., that takes up around a
  1/3 of the screen, and can't be closed, plus i can't read all the info
  on the different tabs. i've tried 'rotate screen' in the qx setup for
  tango, but it doesn't rotate or make any difference at all.
  
  any suggestions?
  
  cheers
 
 
 Try to use window manager in setup. I've added Matchbox also; you'll 
 have the X top-right corner to close application.

I've done the same to fix it in my device. It works well. Use fullscreen 
option in tango/foxtrot then you save the X space.

Regards,

Btw, I've been thinking about integrating qtmoko to Debian. Perhaps as a 
Debian Pure Blend, or even building single packages. I didn't go deeper yet, 
but will try to share this ideia during Debconf. Actually, pabs mentioned it 
once to me in some debian irc channel, so strictly speaking it's his idea :) 
Had anyone here thought the same? It wouldn't change the current upstream 
development model, so radek and qtmoko contributors don't need to worry. 
Updating the system would be much easier for users having official Debian 
packages for qtmoko.

thanks for the suggestions guys, that worked great.

i've got a further problem now though: i can't get a gps fix. i've
installed gpsd, and the port it pushes its data to is the same as the
port tangogps looks on, but no go. i've left it outside in areas where
i've previously got a good signal (with shr and other distros), so i'm
sure it's the software. is there another component in the gps stack i
need - there's nothing on the qtmoko or openmoko wiki about it

You must indicate in gpsd config file the device to use or init it by profile 
QX file in tangogps/foxtrot entry.

this is my /etc/default/gpsd content:

# Default settings for gpsd.
# Please do not edit this file directly - use `dpkg-reconfigure gpsd' to
# change the options.
START_DAEMON=true
GPSD_OPTIONS=
DEVICES=/dev/ttySAC1
USBAUTO=false
GPSD_SOCKET=/var/run/gpsd.sock

I get fix in few seconds.
