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.
