Hello,

i would just like to suggest that you lower the minimum size of the editor canvas, because i cant even see the lower part of the scrollbar.

Just try to resize the window to a height less than about 500px to see the problem.

Thank you,
Slavko

Yeah, it is a bit broken on the Asus isn't it? I was wondering if a separate window for the serial monitor area might help. Maybe a dockable window so you can have it all in one as at present or tear it off and alt-tab between them.

Should be pretty easy to make the serial monitor panel show above the editor panel if the window size is less than 500px. I will try to take a look at it (since I do most of my editing on my EEE) and see if I can provide a patch to fix it.

I don't use anything but the Eee PC with my Arduino - I think they make a perfect pair. Who'd have thought you could play with programmable microcontrollers while sitting on your sofa?

Oh, but I don't need an EEE PC to work with Arduino while sitting on my sofa. A 'normal' laptop works fine, is my experience!

Depends how big your sofa is and if there's someone sitting next to you watching TV.

Hi,

I have made a few changes to the Arduino-IDE sources for version 0010 that allows for smaller windows suitable for the e3pc.
- The Splitpane that divides the editor-panel from message can now be resized,   so that both panels are fully visible (with scrollbars if necessary).
- I removed the statusbar that displays the current linenumber.  
- I switched the look-and-feel of the IDE from "GTK" to "Metal"  
- I switched to Java Swing Fileselection Dialogs because they are easier
 to navigate on a small screen.

It's now possible to work with the IDE in e3PC-EasyMode and still have the MenuBar
at the bottom of the screen.

The install instructions are here : http://www.wayoda.org/share/eeepc/README-EEEPC
The updated IDE-code is here (1.1MB) : http://www.wayoda.org/share/eeepc/pde.jar.eee

I really hope we can get some of these changes into the standard Arduino-Distribution so it needs to be only a temporary hack.

Great! Can't wait to get home and try this out!

Just tried this and it's a fantastic improvement. Thanks very much. Now I need to find out how to get rid of the window title bar when maximized to use all of the screen. I presume changing window managers might let me do it.

Excellent idea and ... done

I added an option to the jar, which run the IDE fullscreen without the titlebar.
