Nekoware: Any Post-It Like App For IRIX? (Tomboy?)

Maybe it is a silly question, but is it anything like that inside Nekoware that I could have missed?
Thanks.
All the best,
Diego

Oh, it's gone (and that was an old version anyway). Nevermind.

No problem, seriously! :)

...anyway, reading a bit at the Tomboy's page, I don't know how well it could be translated into IRIX lands for an eventual port, since: "Tomboy is written in C# and utilizes the Mono runtime and Gtk#. Automatic spell-checking is provided by GtkSpell."

But it is not the end of the world, anyway! ;)

I dug around and found a tarball of the notes 0.9 sources in my 'stuff' dir.

I put it here. From the README I'm guessing it's alright for me to redistribute it, and I'll try to forget it so it stays online at least until the next web-dump cleaning day.

If it's not OK then please jimmer gimme a kick and I'll remove it.

Very nice, it compiles absolutely clean, and it works fine!

Code: Select all

make
        CC -O -c Main.C
        CC -O -c UI.C
        CC -O -c UI_utils.C
        CC -O -c UI_Note.C
        CC Main.o UI.o UI_utils.o UI_Note.o  -L../../../vk/lib -L/usr/local/lib    -lvk  -lSgm -lXm   -lXt -lX11 -lPW   -lC -lCio  -lm -o notes

If Jimmer authorizes it, maybe I could arrange a Nekoware package (that assuming he accepts and I still recall how to do it!)

Thanks in advance!
Greetz!

P.S.: if it was not intended for redistribution, just a word from Jimmer amd I'll remove it from my storage too.

Do you remember this trick, if you paste plaintext onto the desktop it will cate a textfile there? That keeps thiings a fair bit neater than putting up stickynotes everywhere. You could also look for a more full-featured pim program, or do what I do and just hang up a big white board next to the computer.

Just some ideas from outside the box... I keep most of my notes in mathematica .nbs, even for non-mathematical courses. But I always write a paper copy during lectures, none of this hi-tech baloney!

Hello All,

Notes is still up on what used to be called freshmeat.net. Do a search for 'Notes' and "IRIX' and it pops up.

As long as you keep to the GPL, which basically means you attribute the original code to me and you share your own modifications and improvements with the community, I'm just happy somebody finds it interesting and wants to use it :)

Yes, I recall such a neat 4Dwm feature, and it is great! ...anyway, I'd want to avoid filling my whole desktop with more and more textfile icons all over the place! ...you know, I visited Linux lands for long-long time and I miss some minimalistic GUI'fied things here and there! :)

I thought about that, but it would be overkill for the kind of tasks that I actually do with IRIX.

That's a neat idea, assuming you're talking about the white thing that one uses with fat markers! :)

Sure!

Hello there, Jimmer, and thanks in advance! ;)

I could not make any promises because there is only one day and half to play with brand-new IRIX things along the week, excepting the occasional job/work project built with some IRIX app...

...but I think your app is very useful, even if I think it could be enhanced adding some "Add New Note" / "Remove A Note" options to the pull-down menu... and if I find the time, I would be happy adding them and releasing the code later following the whole GPL protocol. But again, no promises because... I know very well how many chances are to not find the time to do it.

All in all, it is helping me already as is... so, thanks again for sharing it! ;)
Best regards,
Diego
