Ive been running Keynote for a couple of days now and Im in love. But since the Windows platform seems to go to hell with Longhorn, being utterly useless I wonder if there will be a version for Fedora or something. At the moment Im not very keen on using *nix in graphical mode so I felt the need to ask.
Tnx for a great program.
I haven't tried the program yet. It sounds like what I've been looking for - but it would be nice if it could also run on linux. Has anyone tried getting it to work with WINE?
I have... it's a bit slow to load on my machine (which is a decent spec) and suffers from the usual problem of not being able to minimize when running beryl, which I've found happens with anything I run through wine.
Would it be possible to re-compile the code for linux, or is there alot of debugging necessary when thais done?
keynote was developed with delphi and I don't know if marek (the author) planned to port it on Linux with Kylix.
Anyway, I plan to recode it totally with FPC (Free Pascal) and Lazarus (an open source clone of delphi). I have not the time for the moment but in a couple of monthes I will begin it. If some of you are interested and can/want to help me, they are welcome !
I'm sure you'll at least find plenty of people willing to beta test for you here.
You can count me.
If only I could program I'd help with that too.
Take a look at free Notecase program at http://notecase.sourceforge.net
There is even a Pro version (commercial) that can import Keynote document.
Interesting find miro, thanks! I'm adding NoteCase to my list of programs/code to check out regarding the future of Keynote.
I've already investigated NoteCase and found it wanting.
It has zero print capability. That was a show stopper for me.
I have converted my Keynote data files to NoteCase. Here's how:
Export the Keynote file using the File->Export dialog.
* Keynote's Export dialog *MUST* have these options set:
* -- Source. What to export: ALL notes
* -- Format of exported files: plaintext
* -- Directory for exported files: ... your choice ...
* -- Include Note Headings off.
* -- Include Node Headings on, with optional data: "@@@ %L %D"
* note: do not specify the quote marks in the dialog
Process the exported file using the conversion utility: knt2gjot2.
The file can be found here: http://www.geocities.com/knt2gjot2
The .zip file contains a readme, source code (C), and a Linux executable.
knt2gjot <keynote.txt >gjotfile.gjot2
Now, import the GJot2 file using NoteCase's File->Import dialog.
NoteCase imports native GJot2 files.
Please read the fine print in the source file!
