PicoGUI works on the <a href="http://developer.sharpsec.com">Zaurus</a> now, as featured in the screenshot archive. I'd like to make ipk packages and/or integrate PicoGUI into OpenZaurus' buildroot, but for now here's a way to try out PicoGUI on your zaurus. Note that while this may work on Sharp's official ROM, i've only tested it on OpenZaurus beta 2.6. <ul> <li>Download <a href="http://picogui.org/download/pgui-arm-20020224.tar.gz">pgui-arm-20020224.tar.gz</a> to your Zaurus</a></li> <li>Untar it into the root directory. It will create some config files in /etc, a pgserver binary in /usr/bin, themes in /usr/local/themes, and applications in /usr/local/apps.</li> <li>Exit Opie/Qtopia on your Zaurus</li> <li>From the linux framebuffer console on the Zaurus, run "pgserver"</li> </ul> That's it. You should be greeted with a touchscreen calibrator, then a nice background with the PGL launcher toolbar. Some of the cool things about this mini-distro: <ul> <li>Everything's double-buffered</li> <li>The touchscreen filtering rocks!</li> <li>Small and fast</li> <li>Includes lots of small apps</li> </ul> And the known bugs or other bad things: <ul> <li>You can't really do anything useful with it</li> <li>There's a bug that causes picogui to give an "unknown error" on startup, but I haven't been able to reproduce it</li> <li>The textbox widget is broke right now, so Atomic Navigator doesn't work and almost all the message dialog boxes are messed up</li> <li>Some dialog boxes will redraw the drop shadow multiple times</li> <li>Probably many more...</li> </ul> <a href="http://picogui.org/download/picogui_zaurus.jpeg"> And because file likes screenshots... </a>
