Download - Sharp Zaurus PDA

2014-08-24: This page contains files for an old version of Tux Paint. A new version is available (you can download the source-code). If a new version is built for this platform, we will add it here.

'Tux Paint for Zaurus' is a ported revision to Sharp's PDA Zaurus SL series. Only VGA mode is supported. This program works fine on SL-C700 and SL-C760, but is supposedly capable of working on the other models with VGA LCD.

This revision is based on version 0.9.14 and the following modifications have been done for easy-to-use operation with touch panel of Zaurus.

More than 3MB free space is required in flash memory ('/home'). SD or CF memory might be avilable, it's not been verified.

Additional Libaries

You may also need to install SDL shared libraries.

SDL library for ONScripter

ftp://ftp.tuxpaint.org/unix/x/tuxpaint/builds/zaurus/onscripter-lib_20031201_arm.ipk
Version: 20031201

Using Tux Paint for Zaurus:

  1. Installation
    Before installing tuxpaint_0.9.14-z2.ipk, you have to install 'onscripter-lib_20031201_arm.ipk' (see below).
  2. Fonts

    Basic package has only one font: 'default_font.ttf'. You can install the other fonts included in original Tux Paint archive from the 'Extra' package.

    If you like to use another 1-byte TrueType font, you copy it to '/opt/QtPalmtop/share/tuxpaint/fonts/'.

    If you want Japanese menus, you have to install a Japanese font as '/opt/QtPalmtop/share/tuxpaint/fonts/locale/ja.ttf'. You'll also need to install Japanese locale files. Please read INSTALL_zau_ja.html for information on how to setup a Japanese environment.

  3. Stamps

    The basic package has only a small number of stamp images, because it takes a long time to load stamps at start-up on Zaurus.

    If you want to install optional stamps, you can download them from the Tux Paint source download page and copy them to '/opt/QtPalmtop/share/tuxpaint/stamps/'. It's recommend you select only your favorite ones!

  4. Starter images

    The basic pack doesn't include starter images.

    If only a few starter images exist in the proper folder, you have to wait several seconds to open image list. It is recommended you not install starter images, but if you might want, you have to copy them to '/opt/QtPalmtop/share/tuxpaint/starters/'.

Configuration

The "Tux Paint Config." configuration tool for Tux Paint is currently not available for the Zaurus, so you will have to make a configuration file by hand ('~/.tuxpaintrc').

Please see original documents for details.
