Beaver -a lightweight text/src editor

I have started a Beaver thread here, but I never published a binary.

useful things:
# USB keyboard server
# windowmanager fluxbox

Without fluxbox you have to live with this odds:
# Beaver starts as a non-fullscreen-window, you can set the size of the window in the Edit/Preferences.
# Beaver window lies above all others.
# Beaver does not work right with ipdf [it was discussed in the older beaver thread].
Therefore I recommend to give fluxbox a try. You can change the size of beaver's window when you drag & drop a corner edge with stylus.

Screenshots shows a fluxbox/ipdf/Beaver session.

Awesome! You now have me thinking about buying a USB keyboard. And I wonder if I could connect my psion 5mx to the iliad and use that.

Awesome!
I mean awful...
no Awesome!

(Sorry I am a 'The Office' fan )

This editor is very good indeed and once you managed to change the size of the window it is really useable (even with the onboard keyboard). If I need a full refresh I just press "SHIFT" twice.
Thanks for this app!!!

Argg. I've set the windowsize so small, that I cant got to preferences anymore to reset this. Reinstall didnt help. Yokos: Do you know where this information is stored?

Thanks

Yepp, beaver uses the dir /home/root/.beaver/ for configuration files.

Shell script is attached, which deletes the config file "General". Beaver creates a new one with default values, when you start beaver the next time.

I have set the home directory to
Code:
export HOME=/usr/local/home
in the beaver starting shell script, but beaver ignores this.
