Linus is the father of Linux but as with any child you loose control over it in time.
If he decides to do something against the principles of freedom and independence (which I doubt he will do) there will be a fork instantly.

Now I tried to compile the linux version and it goes well without error but the screen is messed up and there is a big debug screen.
( I installed libgmp-dev, the latest ligtk-3-dev was already installed.)
Entering commands from the keyboard seems to work in the debug screen but for the rest no joy.
I am obviously doing something wrong but what.

Try to change line 34 in file src/wp43s/wp43s.h from

Code: Select all

#define DEBUG_PANEL                 1
to

Code: Select all

#define DEBUG_PANEL                 0
then

Code: Select all

make rebuild && ./wp43s

Calculator configurations can be stored and recalled now. Thanks, fridlmue and Martin! :D

For everybody wanting to test the new features on the simulator, I've built and uploaded a new wp43S.exe. You find it here, as usual: https://gitlab.com/Over_score/wp43s/-/t ... 20binaries

Enjoy! 8-)

Hi,
On page 97/325 of the Owner's Manual, you store mean (0) in register I, Standard deviation (0.305) in register J, put 0.75 in register X, and press Norml to obtain 0.007, the error probability.
If you do the same calculations with an HP50g (NDIST) and with an HP Prime (normald), with the same imputs for mean, SD and x=0.75, you get 0.0636 as the probability.
Could you help me understand that discrepance?

Regards,
Manuel.

Thanks for asking. I verified with a WP34S and a Numworks calculator and confirm 0.0069659 (~ 0.007). I'm sorry I don't know what the HP-50G or the Prime do there.

Edit: I'd recommend NORMALD_CDF on the Prime.

Thank you.
I finally got where I was wrong.

Hi,

WP43S is easy to install & running fine on Win10 following your instructions in the "README.MD".

Transfering the installed & working WP43S.exe with all associated files/subdirs/GTK3
to run with wine/Linux does not work yet
(queer method: probably some common dll's, registry keys still missing :grin:).

Installing WP43S natively in Ubuntu 18.04, works fine, too.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install git 
sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev 

sudo apt-get update -y
sudo apt-get install -y libgmp-dev

git clone https://gitlab.com/Over_score/wp43s.git
cd wp43s
make
./wp43s
WP43.desktop:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Name=WP43s
Exec=/home/user/wp43s/wp43s
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true
Comment=WP43s an amazing calculator in development
Icon=/home/user/wp43s/artwork/wp_logo.svg
Name[de_DE]=WP43s
Comment[de_DE]=WP43s - Taschenrechner in Entwicklung
Path=/home/user/wp43s
But nearly all of the screen (1366x768 px) is used by the WP43S ():

Is there a way to change the size of the WP43 display (smaller skin/config parameter ?) ?

Cheerio !

The portrait simulator requires 526x980 px. This is too large for your screen, thus the landscape simulator is launched, requiring 526x2x~530* = 1052x~530* px. This is a fixed size.

*Vertical size is a guess. You can determine the exact size by measuring your WP43S window.

@Tuxfish: please see here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1816&start=850#p15706 and posting.php?mode=reply&f=2&t=1816#pr15714
There are no skin/config parameters for now.
