Well, I rushed a bit. It does work like a breeze, however I can only use the keyboard characters, I can not get to work the special characters - the "Back" button does not bring up anything to choose from.
Anybody has any idea why that might be?
Keys that work are: all letters a-z, shift works (so A-Z), the dot ".", delete "Del", and Space bar.

Home, Back and Menu buttons seem not to work.

Tried this Midnight Commander too, but can not start it. Thanks for the tip though!

- All is fine now. I overlooked that in order to get missing characters the Menu+letter or Back+letter key combinations must be pressed. It does work fine!

I cannot launch myts on my K4NT. It returns the following:

Code:
myts: malloc.c:3096: sYSMALLOc: Assertion `(old_top == (((mbinptr) (((char *) &((av)->bins[((1) - 1) * 2])) - __builtin_offsetof (struct malloc_chunk, fd)))) && old_size == 0) || ((unsigned long) (old_size) >= (unsigned long)((((__builtin_offsetof (struct malloc_chunk, fd_nextsize))+((2 * (sizeof(size_t))) - 1)) & ~((2 * (sizeof(size_t))) - 1))) && ((old_top)->size & 0x1) && ((unsigned long)old_end & pagemask) == 0)' failed.
Aborted
Any suggestions?

Fix the sources and adopt for K4NT. But honestly, what would you gain? Without keyboard, a terminal emulator won't be much fun. I guess you're probably better off using a Kindlet terminal emulator - I think the soft-keyboard will work in Kindlets, but I'm not sure either.

Hi

The file myts-6.tar.gz is an archive (read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gzip ) - so first thing you have to do is extract the archive (you have several tools depending on what operating system your computer runs) - what you are looking for is inside it. If you are not familiar with the term archive, think of it as a .zip or a .rar file.

Try to extract first the archive and go on from there. Read (always) the "README" file(s), you will also find the .ini file too. Also read everything in the thread related to the subject.



The most important thing for a freshman in linux is to learn Good learning!

The myts archive is not yet adopted to be installed via the "customupdate" script of launchpad. That one only installs ZIP files anyway.

Cheatsheet PDF

This terminal works great! Thanks a lot for programming this!
But I needed a Cheatsheet as PDF to quickly look up all the combinations. I tried to attach it here, maybe someone also can use it, or has a better one.

myTs now refuses to start. Via Launchpad Shell or otherwise.

[root@kindle myts]# ./myts
Segmentation fault
[root@kindle myts]# ./myts.sh
sh: kill: unknown operand
mknod: /var/tmp/myts.special: File exists
[root@kindle myts]# ./myts.sh kill
killall: myts: no process killed
killall: myts: no process killed
[root@kindle myts]# ./myts.sh 1
mknod: /var/tmp/myts.special: File exists
^C./myts.sh: line 21: cannot create /var/tmp/myts.special: Interrupted system call

Any ideas anyone?
I would hate to get locked out right now...

EDIT: Ha now its hung Launchpad. pfft. doh. etc.

Read: myts.sh

It is written to assume that if myts is not running;
then the special file needs to be made.
Rather than test if the special file exists before making it.
Duh...

Try removing: /var/tmp/myts.special
and then see if you can start it.

Hi knc1
I did read the sh but oddly there was no myts.special in var/tmp, I should have mentioned that but I was very tired and a bit disheartened. well back the fray now.


EDIT: Yep I was right, myts.special gets created by the .sh then the process just hangs.
From command line or launchpad. w/e.

as a side note (myts.special is of 0 size)

deleting the .special file by hand does nothing.

Ctrl+C gives us: ^C
/mnt/us/myts/myts.sh: line 21: cannot create /var/tmp/myts.special: Interrupted system call


leaving the special in place and trying to run direct gives us:

[root@kindle tmp]# /mnt/us/myts/myts
Segmentation fault


Hmm. oddness. I'll have a tinker.

and there was me getting all excited about shuffling audio grains for the day. ho hum.

Thanks knc1

myts.special is a pipe, not a regular file, so the size has no meaning.

The problem is probably not with the script, but with the fact that myts binary segfaults. If you'll run something like
strace -f -o strace.out ./myts
and send to me the strace.out file, I might be able to find what the problem is.

You should also try with default config file and font files, if you changed them, since there are practically no input validations in handling those.
