Description:

nTPV is a point of sale (POS) system. Although it was initially designed to manage restaurants, bars, cafes, and similar businesses, it's evolving into a general purpose POS. It uses DCOP and nkxmlrpcd for distributed comunications among POS (ticket printing), and uses PostgreSQL as its database backend. It features a fast and easy-to-use interface. Its high modularity and scalability makes it easy to enhance and mantain.

Hi! I'm having a lot of trouble to install your software. I have to manually twick the makefile because the path are hardcoded. I'm working on Suse and apparently your makefile are oriented toward a debian installation :(

Nevertheless, your software seems really good!

yes. I recon it's difficult to install...

In a few days i will submit the next release candidate 1.2rc1. This release includes a better compilation system, which has been tested on SUSE and Debian, so with just a "make all" as root, all the program must be installed.

The main issue on this great looking app, is taht it runs on my beloved KDE.

The reason I tell you this is because I used to work for a few years in a retail software and hardware company. They made these kind off apps and sold it also. Anyhow, the hardware used at the points-of-sale were almost not the newest computers, but older ones to save money.

I recommend you to port this to a more lightweight desktop manager. Why KDE for one application, it should even be able to run standalone, saving a lot of PC-power.

Cheers,

J

Hi,

this looks like a great application which could help fill a gap in Linux applications.

Have you thought about phoning SuSE or IBM and preparing a commercial distribution? I think the typical POS is not managed by techies who like to install Linux, but by people who want to earn money and need commercial support. No matter how good the application is, especially in specialized applications like these - if there is nobody to yell at if things break, it isn't even considered.

I think this application could make a LOT of impact if a reputable company were to stand behind it. And it might even bring you a job (if you don't already have one :-)


Thanks,

Jens

Although I do not need this kind of app now, I'd like to suggest that at least there should be a English version of homepage and screenshots. Please consider this, thanks

I don't actually need it, but there was no free TPV program yet and it's very nice to see this area has been covered at last. When I have the time, I think I'm going to create a few RPM packages for Suse/Mandrake/Fedora, as I haven't seen anyone anywhere.
