Muy buen HACK!!! Es competamente funcional salvo una cosa. Cuando en modo lanscape se utiliza la función GO TO y se busca una página o localizador, el teclado virtual se superpone con el boton de necesario para que se efectúe el indexado. Sólo se puede salir de esta situación volviendo al HOME. A alguien le pasó?

Gracias por el aporte valioso, lo estaba esperando hace mucho

Very good hack! Function is to compete except for one thing. Lanscape mode when using the GO TO function and look for a page or paging, virtual keyboard overlaps the button is made necessary for indexing. You can only get out of this situation back to HOME. Someone happened to him?

Thanks for the valuable contribution, was waiting for a long

Thanks for the prompt reply. I tried the "small button" version and is the same. I can not use GO TO to find a site or location. Also, I can do this from portrait mode without problems, of course.

Week-end will be dedicated to hacking, so I'll test if the small button have any issue.. same goes for the "normal" version, if i can not fix the problem that now i have, will implement pirl8 solution to the rotation problem.. right now i am really fused

could you use the normal version? If so, there's no difference. Just play that mp3 file. but as said in previous posts, there are issues with screen overlapping.

Change both occurrences of IS_ACCEL=0 to IS_ACCEL=1 in /etc/init/makexconfig .
(With that change, if you open the keyboard and change orientation it should close)

change /etc/xdg/awesome/lab126_ligl.lua "local function liglReflashWholeScreen" to "function liglReflashWholeScreen"
and add "liglReflashWholeScreen()" after
Code:
lipcH:send_event("orientationChange", { currentOrientation })
in /etc/xdg/awesome/lab126_orientation.lua
Excellent! Sometimes the screen was not refreshed correctly when rotation to landscape. So I made some changes and kind-of solved the problem with no refresh after 6 pages as well.
I've returned liglReflashWholeScreen back to being local and created a new one in the same file:
Code:
function liglReflashWholeScreenX()
    if g_liglRef then
        local size = math.max(g_screenOne.geometry.width, g_screenOne.geometry.height)
        liglPause()
        ligl.display_flash_rect(g_liglRef, 0, 0, size, size)
        liglResume()
    end
end
And in the other file the code around orientationChange send_event is:
Code:
            if orientation == UP or orientation == DOWN then
                lipcH:set_string_property("com.lab126.winmgr", "refreshOnTurn", "false")
            elseif orientation == LEFT or orientation == RIGHT then
                lipcH:set_string_property("com.lab126.winmgr", "refreshOnTurn", "true")
            end
            lipcH:send_event("orientationChange", { currentOrientation })
            liglReflashWholeScreenX()
It is simplified that I don't care if you like refresh after every page or not. In portrait it is off and in landscape mode always on.

i have passed whole morning trying, and i think that for some reason if you invoke refreshOnTurn via SSH it works, via our html exploit it doesn't.. i dunno why.. just tryed with pirl8 script, it flip the view but ignore the commands to refresh screen..

Nice work, could you write an SH file that could do all that automatically (and maybe even wipe back situation)? that would be really nice!

i just updated the main topic with new version (pirl8 sh script), so in future i do not have to mess up again with ID3 but just edit SH

Someone asked for media player modding: just got the source, seems not very complicated to mod it but: what do you want to seeadded to this media player? ( colours? )

cool though I think there'll be more problems if we don't fix the refresh issue. it looks like its caused by a bad driver
