GNOME on the Road; Rolling out the Red Carpet - page 4
Improving GNOME via Subscription
So I had a pretty successful week at COMDEX with my collection of GNOME tools. The only part of the environment I didn't try out was either of the text editors--gedit or gnotepad. Both are fine, but I have a dependency on Emacs (or its tiny clone jed) I won't try to kick anytime soon.
GNOME made it easy to get everything I needed to get done, done with quick setup and easy use.
One area I'm still waiting on, though, is stable USB support:
While the gnome-pilot setup has an option for Visor USB connections, I couldn't get this to work despite Progeny Linux's use of a USB-enabled 2.2.18pre15 kernel and the fact I could get coldsync, another Palm syncing app for Linux, to work. I ended up resorting to a serial cradle I'd packed along. Nor does gPhoto's current commonly released version support USB devices like my camera.
Once USB support is better, GNOME will be the perfect laptop environment.
