I've attached the file, my "taps" were basically the same as previously.
Thanks!

I've uploaded a new version of libKoboTS.so. The link is the same. I think it should work.

Pls provide me log again if it doesn't...

I've uploaded the new version of Kobo Launcher

Changes:

1. Mouse plugin fixed (Thanks, clsdclsd!!!)
2. Notepad application added. It's very simple, but it can:
* Load/Save files
* Cut/Copy/Paste
* Undo/Redo

The next step - I'll try to not unload (just freeze) the nickel in order to start Kobo Launcher.

Dear users!

All the applications are free for you. Just PM me your serial number if you want to use it and I make the key file for you.

Sounds good! In the meantime, it would be good to have a power off button next to exit(=reboot). Now, if I want to finish not just my gaming session but using the device, I have to wait for a power cycle.

sergeyvl12, you can pause nickel using this linux command: kill -STOP <PS NUMBER OF NICKEL>

Then start your custom QT app, after that:
resume it like this: kill -CONT <PS NUMBER OF NICKEL>
It works very good, and the wifi stays connected. The only thing is, that nickel thinks the time has changed and ask you for the right time. Lot more simpler then restarting nickel!

actually better

killall -STOP nickel
killall -CONT nickel

Sounds good! But I need also implement mouse input grabbing in the touch screen plugin to not allow nickel to process my mouse events when it wake up. I'll try ...

Thanks! Will be soon.

P.S. Do somebody have Kobo Mini?

usbnet

The 2 new options are added to KoboLauncher:

1. Usbnet

I've managed to compile g_ether.ko usb gadget network driver for the new (freescale!) kobo Touch/Glo readers. It was absent in /drivers/freescale/usb/gadget (ntx driver from /drivers/ntx/usb/gadget is not suitable for new freescale models).

Ntx (netronix) device users should just copy arcotg_udc.ko and g_ether.ko to /mnt/onboard/.kobo/usbnet, replacing original files.

WARNING !!!
This network driver has no RNDIS support and probably will now work under M$ Windows. I've tested it with linux.

1. Start Kobo Launcher
2. Connect USB cable if it is not connected
3. choose "usbnet" option
4. sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.2.100 on desktop.

You reader has IP: 192.168.2.101.

usbnet works much faster and much stable that wifi!

2. Power off

For now it is just "power off". There is no "power off" screen image for a while. But it is in plans!

Thanks for the Power Off option!

About the Usbnet: I have an Ntx model, I can't test your freescale driver. And as I don't have telnet/ssh or ftp enabled on my Touch, I have no use for it anyway. The ping came back nicely using the ntx dirver on the touch and a generic rndis driver on Windows :-)
I just tested it on linux: it works.

O, thanks! Good news that it works with Windows.

I can add sshd launch to usbnet/start.sh script ! SSH for me is a good replacement of telnet/ftp

Dear sergeyvl12, nice to find you hear :-)
I am a new Kobo user, and as you know rather un-techie, so I will have to study a bit more about the plugin: but as for your kobolauncher, should it work on the Mini, too?

paola, Nice to meed you here!

I suspect that it should work with Mini. 90% that it will work. But for now nobody has confirmed that it works or doesn't work with mini.

I would be grateful if you test KoboLauncher for Mini...

hi Sergey,
it works! Only thing, the instructions in the top message should be modified to add that in addition to KoboLauncher, checkers, pbchess-1.2.5, reversi, sokoban there are also notepad, calculator and usbnet to copy in the .kobo directory on the device.

Many thanks!

Dear Sergey,
i understand it may not work under windows, but if I wanted to try, how should I implement your step 4 above? Or is it impossible to do on a windows machine?

clsdclsd confirmed that it works with Windows (see his post below).
Now I'm far from windows

clsdclsd, can we ask you to share instructions how to setup windows usb networking?

P.S. Today I'll try to add dropbear ssh server to Kobo launcher.
