StatGrapher | AppletManager


AppletManager is a program that facilitates the enabling/disabling of taskbar applets.

Conceived 6 Sep 2002

A common complaint among Zaurus users is that the taskbar applets (such as the clock, battery indicator, SD card and CF card icons, volume, various network icons) take up too much room, and it becomes difficult to switch among the running applications since their icons can't be displayed.

AppletManager solves this by temporarily hiding the files (by prepending a '.' to their name) that cause the applets to load when qpe/opie startup. It can also re-enable applets (by removing the '.').
