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.Andrew
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?Andrew
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!
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-EEEPCThe updated IDE-code is here (1.1MB) : http://www.wayoda.org/share/eeepc/pde.jar.eeeI really hope we can get some of these changes into the standard Arduino-Distribution so it needs to be only a temporary hack.Eberhard
Hi,I have made a few changes to the Arduino-IDE sources for version 0010...
Now I need to find out how to get rid of the window title bar when maximized to use all of the screen. Andrew
Hi Andrew,QuoteNow I need to find out how to get rid of the window title bar when maximized to use all of the screen. AndrewExcellent idea and ... doneI added an option to the jar, which run the IDE fullscreen without the titlebar.
