Tablet users? Possible new app...

Postby rogue_ronin on Fri Mar 19, 2010 7:14 pm

Hey,

I use LM Fluxbox CE on an HP TC1100 tablet. It's pretty great.

Aside from system-wide handwriting recognition, one of the apps that is missing for the full Tablet Experience is something like OneNote. Linux has a lot of Journal clones (Xournal, Jarnal, etc.) but nothing that integrates a full suite of note-taking apps.

Well, there is an app, but for Nokia Internet Tablets only, on the Maemo platform.

I've been emailing with the developer of MaemoPad+, which is originally for the Nokia 770, N8x0 and N9x0 internet tablets. Maemopad+ supports RichEdit text, checklists and sketches (including shapes). It's as close to OneNote as there is in the Linux world -- but it's always only been for Hildon and Nokia tablets. I think, but cannot currently recall, that it can annotate PDFs, as well.

He's done a rough port to Ubuntu, as seen here, without any dependencies on Gnome, just GTK.

He's asking for some small financial support to finish the port (around $150 US) -- and I'm wondering if anyone here would consider contributing. I have, but I cannot spring for the entire cost.

If he were to complete the port, it would be the premiere note-taking tablet app on Linux, immediately. If anyone is interested in supporting such a port, PM me and I'll give you his PayPal address.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You might ask this on the Ubuntu forum too, maybe you can get enough people to donate.

That's funny -- just got back after a meeting.

I did post there right after posting here -- I think I posted here first because the community personality is much friendlier.
