Seems for this Iīll have to wait some more

See ya !!
You should check the link itīs pretty easy
git clone git://github.com/dpavlin/k3libre.git
(if you dont have it sudo apt-get install git
) then repeat the last step
twobob@dev ~/GIT $ ls
now nano ~/GIT/k3libre/pdf2fb.sh
and edit the line
./pgm2fb.pl page-$page.pgm | nc 192.168.x.xxx 8888 || true
putting your kindles IP where the Xīs are.
and do the same for ~/GIT/k3libre/ssh-screenshot.sh
and edit the lines
landscape=`ssh firstname.lastname@example.org cat /sys/module/eink_fb_hal_broads/parameters/bs_orientation`
and ssh email@example.com dd if=/dev/fb0 > $name.fb
with the same info.
Couple of caveats,
You will need the access via SSH working to the kindle.
You will need to know the kindles IP in advance, a fixed one in the router is not a bad idea.
This is from memory, Iīll go check my facts. EDIT: Yep just did this from a virgin install.
Unsure if I had to copy anything to kindle but a quick look at the code seem to indicate an nc
call and an eink call, which are both native.
Hope this helps someone.
I edited my /etc/hosts to simply contain 192.168.x.xx k
(this is actually what the OP has set up on the dev box) this is also helpful and you can replace all the ugly IPś with k
One more point. A link to the script is also handy I made one called kss
for kindle screenshot.
Looking through the stuff in the REPO you can trigger this via launchpad amongst other functions but this should get you going.
It generally fires up ImageMagick or similar to handle the file, you save it yourself.
EDIT: ADDED XTRA PIC
This is on a kindle 3 Keyboard, I don't have the drawing app Iīm afraid
