pocket pc version

by AerialVr » Thu Jan 29, 2009 2:27 pm

forgive my ignorance but i was wondering if there is a way to run papywizard on a pocket pc? is it just a question of recompiling the soarcecode for another operating system or is it rewritting the whole deal? is there something i could install on my pocket pc that would allow it to run as it is?

Thanks
Chris BLake

There is no need to compile Papywizard, as it is written in python, a script language. But you need to install the python interpretor, and python modules used in Papwyizard (PyQt4, bluetooth...).

I think python exists (you need 2.5), but I don't know for PyQt4. If you have time to dig, it would help (I have an old PocketPC so I can make some tests).

Try from http://www.python.org to find a binary installer for PocketPC... I'll ask on python ML.

Could be - pythons can swallow very large prey. ;)

I think you would be better off getting hold of a used Nokia N800/N810 Internet Tablet, and forget about trying to run Papywizard on a Pocket PC.

PyQT4 is the python binding of the Qt4 C++ library. It needs to be cross-compiled for PocketPC plateform: this is not something I can do myself (I'm alrady fighting at work to cross-compile python itself for a VME embedded system!). I hope there are already binaries arround.

For python, it is the same: the interpretor is written in C, so needs to be compiled for PocketPC. PythonCE is the binary for that platform. So you can install it (I did that for an earlier version, and it works fine).

About bluetooth, it will work, don't worry.

But there will be an issue: screen size. Papywizard is not designed for vertical screens...

Well, you need PyGTK for WindowsCE... I don't know if it has been packaged.

I think we'll have much success searching for PyQt, for the v2 (release 1.9.3 as the same features as the 1.6.1 - and even more - except internationalization).

A wise choice.

Meanwhile you could look out for a used Nikoa N800/N810 at a good price.
