I've been running X on my TuxScreen since 8 September 2001. So far, I am just using the Xipaq server, (Tiny-X compiled for the iPAQ), which comes with RunningFamiliar. The touchscreen works quite nicely, (it just needs to be calibrated).
The blackbox window manager fails to allocate any colors, (perhaps it is written poorly and requires a TrueColor visual?), but ion works quite well.
(9 Oct. 2001) KDE looks rather fantastic on my TuxScreen. I'm running it all remotely from a Linux/i386 box pointing at the X server on the tux. Everything but the server is remote, so I get the desktop, the window manager, the panel, etc. I can take some photos if someone is interested.
Both konqueror and kmail look quite nice indeed. Especially with the anti-aliased fonts enabled by setting QT_XFT=1. (Although somewhere in starkde this is being reset to 0 on me. Not sure what that is all about).
I can get the phone to hang, (at least the pointer freezes --- X is killed?), by running lots of applications. This is likely due to lots of allocation within the X server, so it is very likely simply running out of memory, (time to upgrade). If I stick to just one or two major applications open at a time I don't seem to have any problems.
I have an X-based calibration program working somewhat, (bug me if you're interested). But it seems to have some bad interactions with the X server, (which is trying to read from the same touchscreen device). Certainly, a better solution is to write a framebuffer-based calibration program that can be used prior to launching any GraphicsEngine. I may start some work on that soon.
