Ah, thanks for the info. I don't have a Kindle 4, and forgot it lacked a microphone. So on a Kindle 3 you can run/install it the same way as on the KT?
And there are indeed Launchpad shortcuts already to record on the Kindle 3. Actually, the very same commands are also in a Kindlet called K3MusicManager
. They are a few variations to the following that use arecord, but these seem to be the best:
; Audio Recorder (stored in 'audio' folder, and playable as audiobook)
A E = !kill -15 `pidof arecord`; dbus-send --system /default com.lab126.powerd.resuming int32:1 &
A S = !RECDIR=audible; [ -d "/mnt/us/$RECDIR" ] || mkdir -p "/mnt/us/$RECDIR"; arecord -qN /mnt/us/$RECDIR/_record_$(date +'%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S').wav!.mp3 &
