A new project hosted here was just released to the public - read more about GPE Phone Edition below or just visit the project website.
GPE Phone Edition (G(PE)Â²) is meant to develop and deploy a GTK / GPE based implementation of a LIPS compliant software stack. It contains a set of applications, libraries and documentation to build software to be used for mobile phones and similar devices, also see the press release text for more details.
The new service for creating and distributing screenshots is available for use now. You can upload screenshots from your device to the website http://scap.linuxtogo.org directly using latest release of gpe-scap.
Its always interesting to visit (and feed!) the screenshot service to see which applications are currently under development. If you are interested in helping with scap.linuxtogo.org please thake a look at the project website.
Many thanks to Tjabo for this cool contribution!
The GPE website looks a little bit old-fashioned, right? I tried to improve its look a little bit yesterday but my HTML and CSS knowlege is a little bit limited. I believe it is better than before but bug reports are always welcome... as soon as bugzilla is working again. :-) Of course here is always the mailingist.
After all this unpleasent discussions i started to move the GPE wiki to LinuxToGo as well. This is also a good chance to merge information from the CVSTrac wiki into the main wiki. We have the most important things in here now and quite some updates of things i noticed while editing the new wiki.
Like always any help is appreciated - there are still some pages missing and large parts of the wiki might want some updates. Don't hestitiate to touch it - its a wiki! :-)
Linux-To-Go and all the open source projects hosted here live from their contributors. But what can i do if i want to help or have ideas i want to discuss?
This article contains some very basic information about where to find the information to get involved with the hosted open source projects Linux-To-Go.
The GPE Palmtop Environment provides a user interface environment for palmtop / handheld computers running the GNU/Linux or any other UNIX-like operating system.
The move of GPE from handhelds.org to linuxtogo.org is almost finished, currently only the CVSTrac, and Wiki services are at handhelds.org. If you run into trouble with the new hosting services, need assistance or are just scared by the nasty discussions in the past please contact the new mailinglist firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me at email@example.com.
Devmand's aim is to provide a standardised way of handling device configuration information and solve device specific problems in one place instead of repeating the same configuration information in multiple places (eg. in Opie, GPE etc.).
We have a slightly improved web services configuration now. All projects hosted at LinuxToGo can have their default homepage at projectname.home.linuxtogo.org.
The data can be uploaded by all project members to the project html directory /home/groups/projectname/htdocs. Please note that it takes a while till the user and permissions are set up after registering a user or project.
Using PHP in this default location is not possible at the moment. If you intend to make a more complex website using PHP or want a nicer looking subdomain please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
GPE-Sudoku is the popular math game which is aimed to gtk-based PDA devices (gpe and maemo are the main targets).
We have Bugzilla installed and ready to be used by the projects that do not want to
use the GForge bugtracker. Thanks to Koen for the initial setup and the friendly looking bug :-) Bugzilla can be accessed here: http://bugs.linuxtogo.org
The projects using bugzilla will share one installation and database. To make using bugzilla as convenient as possible, the projects are allowed to have their own bugzilla product classification. With this setup we are even able to move bugs between different projects which might be quite nice for the distributions. Importing bugs from other up to date Bugzilla installations should be possible as well. To import huge numbers of products and releases we have a small script that imports products and versions from a directory listing or similar.
