Right, Gary has just posted this over on the UIQ3 forum :

New GDesk build - v0.33g

This includes:
* New certificate - no more out of date installation problems! (for a while..)
* S60 5th edition icon fix
* S60 5th edition installation compatibility warning fix

My dev environment is still not 100% so nothing much new so far.

Thanks Gary ! Very Happy

*edit*

Feedback so far:

Everthing installs fine, except Taskman plug-in, which gives a 'Certificate Expired' error.

Ummm, all the icons, even on 'large' setting, look so small on the screen of my 5800.

Gary, is it possible to add a 'Extra Large' setting ? Or make the defaults for S60v5 all a bit larger ? Cool

Wow!!! It is working indeed!!! SO MUCH SPACE ON MY OMNIA HD SCREEN!!! Smile

Long night of Gdesk composing is coming... Smile

Gary - thank you very much!!!

PS. I already see one suggestion: for such big screens it would be advisable to be able to increase font in Gdesk menu.

Gary this is wonderful to have GDesk for S60v5, thank you !

Issues :

Selecting GUI -> USe System : does not use system, just the standard grey UI

Turning phone to landscape with GDesk in foreground does not show GDesk in fullscreen.

It would be appreciated if both icons and font could be made bigger.

I am adding an option to increase the size of everything (i.e. fonts and default icon sizes).

Use System is UIQ only at the moment; I haven't found the equivalent to this code for S60 yet.

Not sure what you mean with your Landscape issue.

The landscape issue - on my Omnia HD when you check the phone position to horizontal the screen rotates to horizontal too. Gdesk in this case doesn't rotate and the upper part of the desktop gets cut. I think it should resize then to horizontal desktop (from vertical) like in E90 for instance.

I would add that the ideal icon size for 640x360 is 88x88. I have tested different sizes until I was able to get the perfect iPhone look (did it with png icons).

The new version is great. The only thing I found so far is that the "static" objects are not refreshing when you move to another page by sliding your finger (touch).

Congrats for the great work and welcome back.

@Gary,

Finally my long wait to install Gdesk on 5800 is over. However I was slightly disappointed as I found that due to quite a few serious bugs (listed below), GDesk was unusable.

1. Tapping a contact dial shortcut results in no action!!. Even flick menu option to call doesn't work (though SMS is working).

2. Finger tapping the program icons do not give consistent results. Some time it requires 3-4 taps to open an application while a similar size icon in Handy Shell home screen works without glitch in single finger tap.

3. No option to access the dial pad or call log directly from Gdesk.

4. Control panel options still completely of UIQ - quite irrelevant to S60.

Wish List

1. Hardware button to access user menu (Like shift in UIQ) e.g; First press of menu button opens Gdesk menu (which can be closed from an option in that menu itself) and subsequent presses takes it to the phone default home screen.

2. Option to scale icons/thumbnails to a few fixed sizes. Otherwise with all the contact image sizes varying greatly, call contact page will look very untidy.

3. Option to copy color of one 'info-views' & 'digital time/date to other infoview on the same page. It is impossible to match the colors manually.

Just wanted to thank you for this great program, Gary.
Works wonderful on my 5800xm.
I don't care if I have to tap several times sometimes, it just looks great.
Also, I don't care about landscape, I rather stay in portrait mode.

Does anyone have icons in 88x88 format available (Nokia original Style + Iphone)?
I am also looking for Backgrounds with "embossed" places to put 4 call contacts in as well as specially designed eyecatcher for the signal / calendar / date informations in 360x640.

Thanks again, this icon fix was so extremely important.

As far as I know the designs are not backwards compatible with the new version and there won't be many around made with 0.33G yet.
It's the same for me btw.
