    Hey nasa,

    I apologize for the delayed activation on the forum, I was moving into a new house this weekend and I'll be without internet at home for a good portion of this week. I am able to squeeze some forum time while at work. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll research into that.

    I've tried imedia Linux several months ago. I couldn't get it up at the time (without to much effort anyways). I'd like to see if anyone can get this up and get all our stuff working with it (i.e. touchscreen, gpsd, frontends, etc).

    kev000,

    May I ask... Why use SDL? Not saying it's a bad choose -- I really don't know the pros/cons with using it. How easy is it to make skinnable?

    SDL has a few advantages:
    - SDL isn't dependant on a window manager or a widget toolset like gtk. (it's great for an embedded type system because it doesn't even need X11).
    - skinning is super easy. widget elements are simply png/jpg/bmp files.
    - graphics acceleration is possible also and sdl can be used with opengl acceleration.

    cons of using SDL:
    - gui functionality takes longer to develop.
    - there are probably more cons, i just can't think of them right now.

    we are working right now on a skinning abilities and a new skin. The classical nghost theme has been a far stretch from traditional frontends. This new skin (thanks to eubey) will be traditional, beautiful, and functional... the holy trinity of frontend design.

    Keep up the great work everyone! I'm just getting everything together to make my first Car PC (screen arrives this week!) and I'm following your development with much anticipation.

I look forward to future releases! and i'm very impressed ... thanks a lot everyone who is working on this project !

    [edit: if any one can suggest how to get it to load automagicly after my window manager does [flux] that would be great also!]

    [edit:edit:]got it to auto load using ~/.xinitrc

    ~/.xinitrc:
    cd /path/to/nghost/
    ./nghost &
    cd ~
    exec startfluxbox
    [/edit:edit:]

    we're glad you like it! if you have any suggestions, problems, bugs post on the nghost/linuxICE forum

    that's the way to start nghost with X
    using just "cd" has the same effect as "cd ~"

    I may be interested in helping you implement a plugin architecture. Is there an IRC or something similar you frequent? I'd like to discuss exactly what sort of functionality should be put in these plugins.

    I've written a couple of plugin-based programs, including libcdorganizer and (just started) evilcpc (utilizing Qt plugins).

    While I don't think nghost would suit my needs, I wouldn't mind spending some time contributing to it
