Hi yokos,
fundamental a very good idea, unfortunately the Stylus functions at my Iliad according to recognition within the contentlister start of fluxbox no more (within fluxbox presumably); and ipdf (Maximize) icon fashion falls during the change into that one.
But for the first try is the good one screen.

Best Regards

nkelle

The contentlist does not behave well under fluxbox. For example, the arrow keys don't move the selector bar consistently and there is a lot of double flashing of parts of the window. I think part of the problem is that the contentlister assumes it has the entire screen, but now it has window decorations. I looked into borderless windows, which I think would help the contentlister. The basic approach is to create a .fluxbox/apps file containing something like:
Code:
[app] (class=contentlister)
  [Deco]      {NONE}
[end]
However, the class is supposed to be its WM_CLASS and "contentlister" isn't right.

Another thing that is strange is that FBReader shows up as "sh", which I think is because it is started by a shell script.

3. How do I know window class name to use it inside apps file?

Run this command and click on the window:
xprop |awk '/WM_CLASS/{print $3 $4 $5}'
to get window class name.
I don't have my iliad handy so I don't know if we have access to xprop on the iliad to find this out.

Thanks again for the hard work!

I also tried the program, but after running the program, the scribble feature does not function well, and I can open two windows (contentlister and 1 program) only...

This is needed for getting support of iLiad's hardware buttons. It's a have-to for the machtbox wm.

Is this working?
Code:
[app] (title=contentlister 0.212)
  [Deco]      {NONE}
[end]

I will get my iLiad back in the afternoon today [CET]. Lending your iLiad is not a great idea. You will miss it every second.

EDIT: The Code above is working. Copy the attached file to the dir _local/home/.fluxbox/ on your memory card. Rename apps.txt to apps.
When you edit this file, please keep in mind to use UNIX encoding.
Attached Files
File Type: txt apps.txt (72 Bytes, 194 views)

Yes, this usage of hacked libX11 is stupid.
I have deactivated it by changing the line in _local/bin/startfluxbox from
Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/private/lib
to
Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
All native iLiad apps should get a nondecorative treatment [-> no titlebar].
_local/home/.fluxbox/apps:
Code:
  [app] (title=contentlister 0.212)
          [Deco]      {NONE}
  [end]
  [app] (title=ersetup 0.212)
          [Deco]      {NONE}
  [end]
  [app] (title=ipdf 0.212)
          [Deco]      {NONE}
  [end]
  [app] (title=ecdc 0.212)
          [Deco]      {NONE}
  [end]
  [app] (title=scribble)
          [Deco]      {NONE}
  [end]
Without it you get problems with scribbling, because of coordinates mismatch [(x,y) of stylus on digitizer != (x,y) of stylus inside ipdf/scribble window]

Another problem: if you maximize a window, the bottom of the window will be hidden behind toolbar/pagebar.

Hi

Is there any progress with fluxbox? I'd love to take notes while having several pdfs open. But taking notes is impossible slow and weird with fluxbox.

I dont understand the code in this threat... is there a update for fluxbox?

Is there a chance that running multiple windows flawless is possible?

Thanks
Gogolo
