I've built that and it seems to be quite buggy ... no UTF8 support ... modal dialogs can't be closed ... it would need some patching

RE: Lightweight Applications
Great that it built. Not sure if it pays to look into updating it or if it would be better to start with something like these to get a lightweight office suite going:
http://code.google.com/p/nanox-microwind...loads/list

There's a spreadsheet, lightweight word processor and paint program (probably vector based). There should be UTF8 support. Was thinking of trying to get these working on some of my machines. They were Linux based programs, but the versions at the link above have been updated in some cases and ported to DOS.

Well I found the source from antipaint. A link in this forum ( http://www.gidforums.com/t-16903.html ). Antipaint was removed from the original site, that's why it's a bit harder to find.
The source didn't contain a readme/install file, so I'm not too sure about the dependencies... In that case it wiser for me to stay away from it Tongue

Hardware in use: Compaq PIII- 1GHZ, Geforce 4000, 256mb, 80gb HD

RE: Lightweight Applications
If you follow the link I posted, the antipaint.tar.gz link should have the source for antipaint and the flwriter-source-12.zip should have the source for flwriter. Dependencies are standard X11 libraries and FLTK 1.3. Most applications seem to be switching to the 1.3 version of FLTK (even Dillo which was using 2.0). The antipaint program was tested on Linux and worked for the person who tested it. The flwriter program has been modified for DOS. I've been looking at it to see what it would take to get it to build on Linux again. flwriter also uses some helper programs. I believe the source was included with the zip file. Was looking at whether to use unrtf as a library as in the DOS version or change it back to the original version where it made a system call to it as a command line program. If I have any luck building them myself, I can let you know.
