Re: My Suggestions for FDOM

2008-09-26 Thread Tim Wentford
For EBooks I have opie-reader working on the image from Qtopia.net but I
don't have enough spare time to work out how to build it for any of the
other variants. If anyone can build Qtopia apps for anything other than the
Qtopia image and can tell me how to do it, I'll have a go (or if they want
to have a go themselves I can provide the sources) - but I don't have the
spare time to experiment with the build systems to get something that works.

I also like to have in near future a x11 version of the finger drawing
qtopia app (scrible or similar name)

 Hi there,
 I've just moved to FDOM and I love it.
 
 I have a few ideas to make it better - these aren't criticisms - it's 
 great at the moment - these are just ideas to make it better - I don't 
 expect anyone to agree about all of them, but these are suggestions...
 
 # Midori(with the settings tweaked) is better for the screensize than 
 minimo - I find it more usable
Please pass me a link to how to tweak it I will take a look
 
 # accel-rotate program, or a way to start/stop it - this is a simple 
 script to use the accelerometers to rotate with xrandr. It seems quite 
 stable. An ipkg is available - http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Rotate
a way to easyly start/stop will be helpfull
 
 When I was running 22007.2, two cool programs I had from Angstrom were:
 
 # Quasar - a x11 mplayer front end.
 This is not perfect for the freerunner - it ideally needs some UI work 
 doing (more than just setting tweaking), especially on it's fonts, 
 however, i have launched mpg QVGA videos with it and watched them as 
 well as listening to music with it.
used pythm isted but I take a look at Quasar
 
 # Claws Mail
 A lightweight mail client - with a bit of UI tweaking from the view menu 
 makes a completely usable mail client. Since we have qmail, I guess this 
 is not necessary, but it's a thought.
 
 # FBreader?
 I would love to see an ebook reader but I think there are big dependency 
 issues here :(
 
 # Games
 Personally, I would prefer to get rid of sudoku and to possibly to get 
 kobodeluxe on there.
 Though not ready yet, keeping an eye on 
 http://projects.openmoko.org/projects/accelgame might be good.
 
 # lint-wifi
 Personally, I prefer lint-wifi to mofi. I really like being able to see 
 the network info it displays (ie IP, DNS DDHCP) as it helps 
 troubleshooting stuff when things dont work :P
 http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Lint-wifi
 

 # wpa_supplicant.conf
 Possibly modify the default the wpa_supplicant.conf to automatically 
 connect to unencrypted wifi hotspots? :-/
 
 I can't help too much - my stupid OM setup script - (givemeteh)apppznow 
 is pretty much obsolete as a result of FDOM :) so I will help in the 
 ways I can. I have joined the development list and considering all the 
 spare high speed bandwidth I have, I've set up a mirror - 
 http://files.tdobson.net/openmoko/freerunner/fadom/
 
We are also working in a script that way, any help well be apreciated
and I will taka a ook at your script too
 At some point soon I'll get rid of the 'a' in fadom :P
I have the mania of call it fsdom... so dont worry, please update the
mirror list in the wiki
 
 Cheers for the good work, keep it up! :D
Thank :)
