Xournal for Maemo 4.0 (OS2008) almost there!


Today I was thinking...that Xournal was a great application when it was available in OS2006 (thanks to Etrunko's work to port it).
So ... why not try to port it to OS2008 (chinook) too ?

So I've been struggling for the whole afternoon with dependencies and recompilations on my scratchbox installation and well... I am very happy!!!

Xournal (0.4.1) works in my Scratchbox!!!

I "just" have to change target to ARMEL and try it on my tablet.

Unfortunately my girl is coming to pick me up and go home, so I will have to make the deb packages tomorrow.

I am sorry.. no packages today. I have spent a whole bunch of hours struggling with how to handle dependencies and how to properly make a .deb file. Unfortunately it's a lot more confusing than what I've thought before.
I hope I will be able to make a release tomorrow.

Weird that it's easier to make a program hildonized than actually releasinng it.

Just be more patient... thanks.

Thank you for doing the job, xournal is one of THE applications for my IT.

Anidel said...

Yeah.. a fun job during my usual, luckily not so boring, job :)

Let's hope today I'll package it correcly.

Anidel said...

I'm almost there guys...
I've sorted out the issues with packaging and repository.

I need to do more test. Hope to be able to make it available before the week end.

Thanks a lot!! This is really a killer app!!

Anidel said...

It works just fine in scratchbox, but does not on the real device...
I need to dig the issue before making a public release...

Sorry for letting you wait guys.
