Quote:
Osmo is a handy personal organizer which includes calendar, tasks manager and address book modules. It was designed to be a small, easy to use and good looking PIM tool to help to manage personal information. In current state the organizer is quite convenient in use - for example, user can perform nearly all operations using keyboard. Also, a lot of parameters are configurable to meet user preferences. On the technical side, Osmo is GTK+ based tool which use plain XML database to store all personal data.

Start via Menu->Personal->Osmo, or by typing osmo.

Note Version 1.2 will run on pupversions 2.xxx however Osmo-0.2.0, due to requiring gtk>=v2.10.0, is for pup 3.xxx series.

Cool I think it is superb

the xml files it creates are in /root/.ozmo
(that is a hidden directory - click on the eye symbol in ROX to see hidden directories)

It is small, fast and efficient. I will be interested to see how it measures up to use. The size makes it very Puppy friendly Smile

woof woof

and i think, going on the osmo site, that the developer has additional features planned. the only thing i wasn't sure about was resizing the actual app, but the developer advised me, via email, that size settings were stored in /root/.osmo/config.xml.

if you've got a dialog going with the developer, could you mention synce support (if it's not on the developer's list already)?

hi john,

i wouldn't call it a dialogue as i've just sent the one email query. but if you've got any recommendations it's best if it comes from you...especially since i've got no idea what synce support is! what if i request it & he feeds straight back to me with a question?



i've found that most developers appreciate honest queries & feedback.

Thanks for that. The author's site does not respond at all -- I get a perpetual "Loading..." in the tab. Just tried now, same thing.

Here's the latest release of osmo.

N.B. As the developer has upgraded the gtk version required to compile this, (gtk+ >= 2.10), the program will only work on pup3.0+ versions. (I vaguely recall pup2.17 had gtk 2.10?).

Edit: See first post.

Curses, the same problem. Muggins, would you mind posting the source too?

It really is weird. Right now I'm in Perth, connected with iinet. The Osmo site won't load. It's an unusual URL, maybe that's a problem for iinet.

Hi Barry,

have attached the sources. This version definitely not to be installed in pup2xx series. I just did so, as a test to see what would happen, and now the package manager is aborting.
