Tightvnc posted. Only had to load old-X-dev.tce, because it uses the old X Imake system to build. I only tested via localhost though, but it should work fine over network.

Thank you very much... I'll test it out tomorrow.

I didn't notice this extension before...thank you for pointing it out, that will make building some drivers that I need to try (to get HDMI support in Xorg) a lot easier.

My requests:
Any AIM chat client (Pidgin, aytmm, etc.)
GnuCash
Some sort of small calender program that I can keep notes/dates on, something similar to http://kontact.kde.org/
Any lightweight text editor - preferably AbiWord
Last, but not least - Some sort of wireless management GUI, wlassistant, anything like that

I plan to add some bioinformatics related modules later this semester or over the summer so that TCL can be my OS of choice during grad school.

it would be great to use a friendly gui zip/unzip (just tar.gz is fine, gz plus bz even better, and if it actually includes zip, that's great) program like file-roller. obviously file-roller itself is a bit much (gnome? xfce?) and emelfm is no good because i want to use it to remove individual files (edit tar.gz files...) and emelfm only ungzips them.

but i don't need a .tce (i wouldn't mind.) as usual i'd love to know something along the lines of what i'm mentioning that "just compiles" without crazy hacks. svensko just compiled mad-wifi and using the linux headers, and from the looks of his post it just took make, sudo make install. i wish there were more projects like that. probably because it's not a gui, or using ncurses, eh? so much fuss just for good old ansi escape routines. i'll keep looking, maybe i'll try to compile the gnu tar util.

Did you have a look at peazip - http://peazip.sourceforge.net/ ?

I believe version 1.9.x can be compiled with/without gtk2

Here's a copy of Skype that works with  OSS and libstc++5.0.7 installed.  I could never get this working with DSL, but it works great with tiny. I included a menu, or load with "skype"

[^thehatsrule^: link removed - compliance to company license not shown]

Edit: the license is included in the skype folder.  Not enough???

that was a great idea, thank you, but it seems you can only get source from cvs, and i can't find any binaries dating back to 1.9.x.

file roller couldn't modify the file anyway, i  ended up unzipping with tar (busybox tar refuses, even as #) and then zipping back up with tar. after copying it to tc again i can open the archive.

try Xarchiver.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xarchiver/

or Xarchive.
http://xarchive.sourceforge.net/

or, if you can wait for XFE.tce, you can use the archiver in that.

Leafpad is available here.

AbiWord is actually a word processor, but it wouldn't  hurt to have that also.

We are getting a bit of a backlog in extension requests, it appears.

i used the archiver in xfe today, it's insufficient (to say the least.) i was looking for a way to open a tar.gz, select files from a list, and remove those files, thinking file-roller in xubuntu would do a better job. it did not, it was unable to help (although it has such a feature) and i ended up unzipping with full tar and rezipping with full tar.

this means i could probably create a dialog in the future that allowed me to do what i'm looking for using tar, and it would be more effective than file-roller, and it would run in aterm or from vt.

thanks for the two url's, i'll look at those anyway, but if they're just gui's for busybox tar, they're not going to make any difference.

Indeed! I also found out that oo2 was Open Office which is also a nice touch (if only a bit large). Very nice, guys!  :D

it is, i'm glad you mentioned it because i didn't know it was there. very odd extension to not be available as tcz, but i imagine that's what tce2tcz.sh is for. i wonder what you do with dep files if converting from tce to tcz.

I won't lie, I'm not familiar with a lot of the applications in the tce repos. Is there an e-mail client? If not, can I place a request for Sylpheed?

http://sylpheed.sraoss.jp/en/

One final request: a .tcem containing the skge module. It seems I'm not the only one that would love to have it.

If unsure, do try the search in appbrowser; it searches not only from the name but also the contents of all the .info files.

I do not think there's an email client yet though.
