Tim,

I enjoyed opie-reader on the Zaurus...look forward to it on the Freerunner! 
I've been eagerly anticipating someone building a reader!

Thanks bunches...hope it's ASU capable soon.

Re: Opie-Reader qpk for the Qtopia distro

2008-08-21 Thread Tim Wentford
I've got Qtopia working off my SD card now so I can do some more testing. I
added a little bit of gesture support so you can do page up/down by stroking
up/down the screen, zoom in/out by stroking right/left, and then the four
diagonal directions do back/forward/beginning/end but I can't remember which
is which ATM - I'll sort it all out better when I have a better handle on
how to make it work on the Freerunner.
You can also map the power button to page down (or any of the mappable
functions) which makes it much more bearable to use.

There seems to be some funnies in the way it interacts with qtopia -
especially on first start-up and in combo-boxes but it is reasonably usable
if you just want to read books but I don't think it is feed ready, yet. But
Lorn has permission to put it up there anytime he wants to.

The qtopia qpk is in the same place, but the ASU version is still awaiting
me having the time to work out how to compile qtopia apps for ASU. I may
have some spare time this weekend to give it another go.

Re: Opie-Reader qpk for the Qtopia distro

2008-08-18 Thread Tim Wentford
I've had at least one report that it is at least usable and working
reasonably well so it is probably worth adding to the feed - it seems to be
at least good enough to read a few ebooks with and I'll make it all a bit
nicer when I get a chance.

2008/8/17 Tim Wentford [EMAIL PROTECTED]

 Of course you can add it to the feed (the Greenphone was the original test
 environment, after all 8^).
 But check it works first

 It is pretty much optimised for the Greenphone ATM, other than I flipped
 the flag to use screen touches for navigation so it is usable.

 Does the touch and hold right mouse button emulation work on the
 Freerunner? If not, it'll be painful swapping mouse actions to select
 navigation links, and then swapping back for page up/down etc.

 If it proves popular enough, and I can't get a build environment working,
 I'll go back to Qtopia again and sort it out.

Opie-Reader qpk for the Qtopia distro

2008-08-17 Thread Tim Wentford
I've used the Qtopia SDK to build an Opie-Reader package for the Qtopia
