Any Help?

Firmware 3.x probably uses different keycodes than 2.x original DXG firmware. You may need to modify the ini file to make it use K3 keycodes. You can check the keycodes from SSH with:

while:;do waitforkey;done

and press some keys...

absolutely. This is, actually, what I did this morning.
I did that in order to install the pdfviewer thereafter.

Please provide more details. But first please make sure that every
program you tried to install has been installed correctly and works.

Hello,

In an attempt to get usbnetwork access, I (naively) switched to "auto". Now I am unable to get back to mass storage mode. :S

Would there be a default key combination to switch? I'd love to access the ini file but obviously cannot get the computer to recognize the kindle (dxg on 3.2.1)

Thank you h1uke, I managed to install launchpad and pdfviewer today (turns out that I forgot to reinstall jailbreak: seems to be necessary even if the k3 itself was installed on a jailbreaked DXG)

From one naive question to another one probably, but: Is it possible to quit launchpad --or is that even necessary? (e.g. to save as much cpu as possible when using the amazon framework)

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.
Try, "lipc-probe -a"

N S !/etc/init.d/netwatchd stop & !/etc/init.d/powerd stop &

Launchpad

Dear h1uke,

currently I use the kindlevnc viewer by Hawhill and it works nicely. I use a kindle dxg, software 2.5.8.

However, the launchpad so far does not work. If I restart my Kindle, the launchpad.log file shows

However - pressing, e.g.
Shift Shift s
results in almost nothing.
Besides the effect that the launchpad.log file turns into a file with zero bytes - an empty file.

Other hotkey series have the same 'effect'

I have installed the jailbrake and also renamed the file keydefs.ini.default into keydefs.ini. But so far that's not a solution.

Do you have a hint?

Best regards
and greetings
Felix

Err, it's been a while since I did it but you did try the SHIFT SHIFT SPACE first right?

IIRC that reloads up the ini.

I'm no lauchpad expert - that's from the docs I believe. Best of luck, I haven't tried it on my DX yet. perhaps I will, but given you experience - perhaps I won't

One thought: You did also try shifting the 114 and 115 Keycodes (or just eliding them once for a test) right...

"key code 115 already used by VPlus
key code 114 already used by VMinus"

IIIRC there was some mention back at the beginning of this thread about DX having different buttons (slightly) to the model this was configured for (or the other way round I forget)

The point is getting rid of that tiny error at boot could not hurt and is trivial to undertake just to see if it helps.

Best of luck getting it sorted

Hi twobob,

Thanks for the answer!
Even typing SHIFT SHIFT SPACE has the same effect as other shortcuts, it results in a zero length log file.

Further, I removed all the '; Kindle3-specific keys' from the keydefs.ini file. Has also no positive effect.

I'm clueless.

Hi everybody,

uhh, I just was too slowly entering the key sequence. Found a hint in

http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind...USB_Networking

Thanks hawhill! I was just astonished that the launchpad.log-file turned into a zero length file every time I entered the key sequences slowly. So, I had the impression that something was going on, but a bug was in the launchpad setup on my kindle dxg.

Now, everything works fine. Just being fast – sometimes – is a solution ;-)

yes. .7 of a second for the total sequence, no more than .3 secs apart IIRC the conf correctly.

You're not the first one to be caught out by that. Happy days you got it going. Joy and bubbly goodness to your days
