AirX

H'allo!



So, after being thoroughly frustrated with my other project, I decided to have a go at an idea I had a while ago. AirX is a GUI front end for X Forwarding. What does that mean? That's means you can have any and every app and program you use on your Linux PC on your tablet. Sweet, hn? That means Firefox, Gimp, Open Office, Gedit, anything you can think of, and without having to touch the command line. (This is intended for non-Linux-techie end-users, but those who are familiar with Linux may find it handy, too).



SSH and Python must be installed to use.

Alright, the following application is released under the GNU GPL:
Please See THIS Post For Install!

iTablet as Home Desktop

You know, every time I re-read that title, I can't stop getting this giddy feeling ;)

So, iTablet, my application launcher. Well, turns out, I'm an idiot (everyone knew that but me apparently) and I'm going to try to turn this into a practical replacement (or complement) to the current Maemo desktop. (Again, laughing as I type). I think it's possible, I really do. I've actually started using 0.08 (Which has been released on http://iTablet.garage.maemo.org ) a lot. I mean, I've almost completely stopped using the norm. Here's a little vid of iTablet as more than just an app launcher, hope you like it!



I'm pretty happy right now :-)

So, let me make a little list of what needs to happen in order for me to atleast use this 24/7. (Feel free to add!)

1. Launch all applications (thinkin' on this one)
2. Status plugins (battery, volume, and network are in the works thanks to a friend)
3. Switching between apps with hardware button (x_x I have no idea)
4. Ehm... can't think of anything else that I use that the current desktop has ;)

And I just want to say thanks to all those reading RMUG and all those using iTablet. (It'd be nice to have an iTablet user's thread at Internet Tablet Talk, hmm? ;) Thanks you guys, you're all great)

See ya'!

iTablet 0.07 and It's Site!

Yo!



iTablet now has it's very own web site! Check it out (please excuse the poor GIMP abilities I posses, as well). iTablet Official Site

iTablet version 0.07! Almost to 0.1, where it will be in beta stage... But, for now, updates and loads of bug fixes. The most obvious update is the change of icons, so I don't incur the wrath of the great fruit.



But, aside from that, major revisions and bug fixes in the configuration utility. And, no more blank dialog boxes popping up, and now you can open them more the once a session (I can't believe I finally got around to figuring that out) ;) Alright! (Remeber to check out iTablet.Garage.Maemo.Org) :) Here ya' go:

The following application is released under the GNU GPL:
iTablet 0.07 Deb

And, as always, Python MUST be installed to run iTablet. Enjoy!

Hiya :)



How goes it? It goes well for iTablet, everyone! This update includes a neat little trick. You want more buttons? Really? More things to customize and muss with? Well, here you go:



These buttons won't appear by default, you can actually make them appear by clicking the Gears Button. Then, when you are done with iTablet, just re-click the Gears Button and the configuration utility will pop up just like it did before. None of the buttons have any real program set to launch from them, so you'll have to set whatever you want to launch. (I couldn't think of anything, sorry.) Oh, and the dark theme the configurator had going on, it's gone, easier on the eyes the way it is now ^_^

Here is the link!

Enjoy!

iTablet 0.05!

Yo!


iTablet version 0.05! Woo! Another small step has been taken. This release includes a revamped and completely finger friendly configuration utility. I admit, it is a little hard on the eyes, but it's a lot better than the "dialog configurator" I had set it to use before. It needs a lot of work, but it's getting there ;)

Oh, and more great news :) iTablet is now an official project in the Maemo Garage. Pretty sweet, hn? That means no more crappy file upload site to download the debs from, just good ole' Maemo.org. And... here is the download link. (Be sure that Python 2.5 is installed!)

Yo!

Another small, but infinitely nice, update to iTablet. Now you can customize the image on each button. Quite a few bugs have been fixed, but as always, this is alpha (maybe, maybe, maybe beta) quality code. I hope you enjoy! :) 
(And, if any real developers were wondering, I wasn't trying to write the world's most inefficient code... It just kinda came out that way ;) Nyeah!)

iTablet 0.03 Release

Yo!
Here is a small (but useful) little update. This is simply a change to the way you are able to configure each button. Right now, it only incorporates the button's command, but next should be the ability to configure the picture or position on/of the button.
Oh, I have forgotten to mention that Python must be installed to run this. Yes, Python 2.5.

This update means no more tinkering with a python configuration file ;) To edit the the commands, click on the button with the gears on it. Enjoy!
Please uninstall all other versions of iTablet or iMaemo before installing this version.
EDIT: Typo in dialog.py has been fixed, this is the updated link.

A Riddle for My Readers

Yo!

Without any virtual desktop software (like VNC or Rdesktop) and without using up all my life rigging firefox.... How do I have Firefox running on my N770, watching a Youtube video on my site? ;) If you know... you are clearly an active member of The Internet Tablet Talk Forums *hint hint* And if not, you should be, it's a great site.

I'll be testing this further to see what is practical, and I might even rig an app up for easy use from anywhere. (It's nothing special at all, but non-linux users have probably never heard of forwarding ;) Hm...)

And... here's the pudding ;)

Yo!

The application formerly known as iMaemo has been changed to iTablet. Why? Because, again, I'm lazy(a moron) and didn't read anything about the legality of using Maemo in the name of my app. (Thanks for telling me about that, Quim!)

So, please, enjoy iTablet ;)

The Release of iTablet!

Well, halo thar!

This is the announcement of my pointless, iPhone like(I guess? XD), application launcher for Maemo. It is practically useless(I will make it very practical in the future though, if I am able to implement Tony's Kinetic Scrolling Widget ;) You know, for... practical purposes!) Ok, ok... so... be warned, this is an ALPHA grade application. It won't brick your tablet, no change in hell, but it might bore you to death.







Here is the deb for you to install:

(The following program is released under the GNU GPL)
imaemo_0.02-1_armel.deb


Ok, but! There are some minor(ok, not so minor) glitches(bugs!) in version 0.02...

1. The only way to close the app is by clicking the gears(preferences) and by hitting "Save Preferences", which will automatically close the app.

... Ehm, can't have to many flaws in such a small program, I guess...


What the buttons do by default:

The Calculator Button: Launches the built-in calculator.

The Gears Button: Launches a preferences dialog so that you can change what each button launches, closes program on completion.

The Map Button: I have never installed Maemo Maps, so I don't know what the command to launch it is... so... you will have to customize it to maps.

The Camera Button: Launches the image viewer. For you lucky N800 and N810 owners, you can just set it to the camera app easily.

The Mail Button: Launches the built-in mail client.

The Notes Button: Launches the built-in notes app.

The Calendar Button: Nothing, you can customize it as you wish.

The Graph Button: Open up an x-term running the "top" program, showing CPU and memory usage of running apps.

The Sun Flower Button: Opens the built-in filemanager.

The Safari Button: Open the built-in browser.

The iPod Button: Opens the built-in music app.

The Phone Button: Open the built-in chat app.


Customizing What Your Buttons Do:

When you click the "gears button" a small dialog comes up containing the deafault settings, ie...

browsec = "/usr/bin/browser"

Ok, looks complicated? It's not. See the name browsec? It just stands for Browser Command. (All the Cs stand for command!) The "/usr/bin/browser" is the FULL PATH to the executable. It will not work if you just put in the command. BUT WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT: Since I am a moron and very lazy, YOU MUST KEEP THE COMMAND IN QUOTES! If it goes out of quotes, iTablet won't launch. Okies? Awesome.

Some more friendly will be in verson 0.03 ;)

Alright, that's it, my friends, enjoy the alpha release of iTablet.
