    Frontends

    Hey..hi guys The questions:
    Is there any cool linux frontend ?I've read the topic of frontends..I think there are 2 new ones it's a petty that headunit project stoped, there was some work done already why can't someone pick it up(I would if I knew how to program qt(gui) and had the time for it I would)! As far as I remember the things that were missing in headunit were custom GPS app embedded window (launch apps by frontend).
    The other thing is anyone working with destinator 3(mapmonkey would be great) in wine/cedega/crossover? Probably the answers are in the forum (but I just see threads saying..I'm almost there....)

    PyCar
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Silverwolf will do everything you're looking for, except an embedded nav app. The setup is a bit involved, and some things are hardware specific, but it will do (almost) everything you want. I've been using it for over a year now, but of course I'm the author

    Silverwolf 3...?

    Yes it is fully skinnable by anyone. It uses a large collection of PNG graphic objects. Many of the UI objects are movable and resizable. Some of the graphic objects draw themselves according to a palette specification.

    As for an embedded nav system, that will have to wait until one is released (hopefully sometime this year according to e-mails I and a few others have received).

    I tried to use the package in the pycar iso: I have this :
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "pycar.py", line 251, in ?
    mainTest( s )
    File "pycar.py", line 151, in mainTest
    config.parse()
    File "/root/pycar/pycar/parser.py", line 861, in parse
    self.parseNode( self.node[ 2 ] )
    File "/root/pycar/pycar/parser.py", line 852, in parseNode
    app= self.processNodeByName( appNode )
    File "/root/pycar/pycar/parser.py", line 99, in processNodeByName
    element.parse()
    File "/root/pycar/pycar/parser.py", line 160, in parse
    target[ obj.id ]= obj.load()
    File "/root/pycar/pycar/parser.py", line 815, in load
    NodeElement.load( self )
    File "/root/pycar/pycar/parser.py", line 77, in load
    self.execute( 'onLoad', None, None, None )
    File "/root/pycar/pycar/menu/generic.py", line 220, in execute
    exec( s1 )
    File "<string>", line 11, in ?
    AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'extensions'
    Background tasker stopped


    With cvs it's even worst(in the previous I got a blue screen with loading for a split of second)

    I have all of the ones listed in pycar webpage pygame,pymedia,pyrxp We can't compile pycar manually? If I try to do it it asks for p2exe(I think that's for windows)

    Why do you have to compile it? You should just be able to install python and have it interpreted. (I haven't used PyCar, but I've done my share of python coding)
