Failure messages on DXG

I installed launchpad on my DXG just so I can use Kaffeine. The problems may be related to kaffeine, but it looks like something else is not quite right.

I can do a shift/shift/space and I get the "Success" message just fine, same for shift/f/b and so on. Woo hoo!

I then installed kaffeine (latest release) by copying the two files (kaffeine and kaffeini.ini) to the launchpad folder, and did a shift/shift/space (got success message), but whenever I try to use kaffeine, I get a failure.

I tried redefining the kaffeine keys, then got launchpad to rescan the ini files, so the new keys are accepted, but I still get the failure message every time.

I removed the kaffeine files and uninstalled launchpad, then reinstalled and re-added kaffeine, same ol' problem.

When I dock the DXG, the launchpad.log file is zero bytes long. I don't know if this is significant or not?

Any suggestions?

[EDIT] I should state that the sequence I follow is :
shift,x (to start kaffeine) - this always fails
shift,k (for mode 2) - always fails
...as do all the other keysequences.

I have updated my Kindle 2 to 3.2.1 (http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/6432..._and_Kindle_DX) and now kafeine works! I see date and time in screensaver mode. How fast will it drain my battery?

What is the difference between 2 locked modes?
replaced "system" with "launchpad" and it worked.

exactly the same problem here. Did you ever get it resolved?


EDIT - sorry, the sucky forum software doesn't show that I replied to Cephas Borg.
Launchpad works on my DXG, but Kaffeine doesn't, no matter whether installed to System or Launchpad folders. Also, why are there 2 kaffeine files plus the ini?

Hi fbdev,

thanks for the great tool, now I'm finally able to use cron to launch a script at specific times.

Is it possible to get the source code for kaffeine?

I'm still confused about the Kindle power management. What is the difference between sleep and standby mode? And is it possible to automatically wake the Kindle from either mode?

I'd like to use kaffeine without launchpad, so I'm what would be the best location (skript) to start it automatically after a reboot?

Ciao,
Steffen

Hi fbdev,

thanks you for providing the source. Is there a particular reason that the file is already pre-processed? It seems to be more difficult to read than the unprocessed source, so it would be great if you could provide that also.
