Hey dsmid, you seem to have a great com.lab126 command for everything, thanks! Would you have something like that for changing font size and possibly for starting the browser?

Is there anywhere a documentation that lists these command?

Unfortunately these things are deeply buried in obfuscated Java code.

I don't know about such document. The source is the best documentation anyway. Take a look at various scripts in your Kindle and learn as I do.

how about a function, that would took the coordinates from the log file, and opens in the browser Google map with these coordinates?

Is there anything you could do about the timer?
Could we have a timer for the Kindle so that it shuts down after a specified time?
We could activate this via Shift P S and then a timer when to shut it down (save battery life).

open books using launchpad

Possible to open some books using launchpad?

I search way to work with several books at one time and quick launch for priority books.

Example: some dictionaries, wikipedia, last-read books.
I think, it's very important feature for active learners, researchers etc

Unable to use Launchpad on kindle 3 wifi

Hi,

I have tried to use launchpad in kindle 3 wifi. I can see that the process is running, But i am unable to use it.

[root@kindle log]# ps -ef | grep launchpad
root 1462 1 0 19:08 ? 00:00:00 /mnt/us/launchpad/launchpad
root 22087 19797 0 22:12 pts/0 00:00:00 grep launchpad
[root@kindle log]#

on restarting i get the following in launchpad.log

[root@kindle launchpad]# cat launchpad.log

pressing any shortcut results in a search for that letter.

This is awesome - thanks. Using it with a few other programs. I'd like to use the shortcuts written about in this thread, but I am unsure how to create an ini file using them (my first preference) or how to go about entering them in the main ini file (I'd rather not mess with this - but will if I have to to make these shortcuts work).

The 'open browser' shortcut would be useful. Also a 'go to beginning' and 'go to end' shortcut in a book would be great too.

Thanks for this hack - it's becoming very useful. I especially like the 'rotate screen' hack which I use for my pdfs and some comics. Cheers!

I'm a little confused as to what this program is entirely capable of. I see that it can condense many keystrokes into just a few. Is it capable of direct symbol injection? For example, I could make a shortcut definition to open the Sym menu, use the 5-way to get to the symbol I want and press the 5-way. Is it possible for launchpad to directly input that symbol instead of going through simulated keystrokes?

Mario1up, maybe physkeyb is what you're looking for:

Launchpad is more intended for launching internal commands (executables).

changing the page keys

Hi Everybody,

I wonder if it is possible to change with the laucher the page up, page down, keys....
The reason is that I have the fb reader, and i want to read it with page rotated to horizontal.
But te fb reader only allows 90 deg rotation, not 270 degrees. Therefore te page up / page down keys are in the lower part of the position, quite uncomfortable...

Maybe I could assign to another key the function of page up, page down.... Is that possible?

Thank you !!!

Nope. That's not what this does. Unless, you want to click Shift - Space or something every time you want to change the page.

This may not be a good answer, ..but - I made a change. Forgive me, as I don't remember the details. It should of course allow you to turn it any way you like. The limit is in the setup-menu. If you look around in the file system, you can find where your settings is stored. Now, enter 0,90,180,270 degrees as you like it. You may start it up again, go into the settings-menu and it will say what you stored in the file. You may turn it 90 degree from there as well. ( it may simply be that a counter only count to 2 instead of 4 states ) I hope this may be of help. I don't have the kindle here, - so I cannot tell you the name of the file and the entry to change. I am sure you can figure it out.

Hey Fethry!! Thank you very much!!! Finally I could assign the key "Z" to "Pageup" by changing the keymap.xml file searching in the default directory....
But I could not find the file where you can input the 0, 90, 180, 270 degrees which is a cleaner solution....
If you could tell me about that file, I would really appreciate it....
