Hi,

Sounds cool, but in my case, it not working. Where is the problem? I 'am copy the file "fbprint" to "/mnt/us/system/", and I wrote into "key shortcuts" ini file of Launchpad this:
Quote:
[Actions]
T T = !/mnt/us/system/fbprint ;
But, as I said, if I will press Shift T T, I will get only Failture message.

Thanks,
Jakub

Jakub: This program is used to print arbitrary text out to the eink screen. If you don't understand what fbdev's comment of "run with no args to see usage" means, this is likely not going to be useful to you.

I understand to fbdev's comment, I run program from Launchpad with no arguments, or not? But, as I said, I can see only Failture message by Launchpad - not manual or example of usage of FBprint. Can you give me example, how works with it?

Thanks,
J.

SOLVED. Thanks, when I run program from Putty, I got what I needed.

how about a cls?

Hey all...

fbprint works nice for me, just perfect for mplayer and launchpad response, but I wonder how can I erase the part of screen where fbprint wrote something. besides the obvious fbprint x y ' '?

Even with that, previous background gets garbled, is there a way to sort of reset the screen to previous state?

Another option is that kindles have a built-in eips command that can clear the screen, print to the screen, scroll the text screen, and display PNG image files to the screen.

You can save and restore original display screen contents via the framebuffer device. There are multiple ways to trigger a display update after modifying the framebuffer contents.

Read more about it here:
