It's so hard to setup because of the level of knowledge needed. I don't earn money with this, it is just a publication of code I've written. I don't have time nor motivation to do tutorials for software in such an early development stage, sorry. If I had the time at hand, I'd rather fix lingering bugs in the code (I'm 100% positive there are some).

Yes, I can see that line in config.lua but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. I tried pressing it multiple times (the button works in normal kindle mode, outside kindlevncviewer). I always have to kill the process via telnet.

Is there some way to debug?

Hm. For a start, just inserting a "print(...)" (that ... being a variable worth inspecting or just a debug "string") in the relevant part of the code could give more information. Unfortunately, I don't have a kindle anymore which has buttons.

Hello,
new member here!
I was trying this tinyapp http://tinyapps.org/docs/e-ink-monitor.html but the last step (3.c) it seems not working:

[root@kindle root]# /etc/init.d/powerd stop

Stopping Power Management Daemon: [root@kindle root]# /mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh 192.168.2.1:1 &

[root@kindle root]# -sh: /mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh: not found

What's the problem?
Thanks!

Is that file present at the path and name given in the "not found" message?

It is in the proper place inside of the archive you where supposed to install, from:

Well, yes, I think the file should be in the correct place because I followed the instructions in tinyapps page http://tinyapps.org/docs/e-ink-monitor.html

OS X Mavericks
kindle dxi
Software version 2.5.6
I copied the entire folder kindlevncviewer in the USB storage root of the kindle

The problem now is that the kindle doesn't appear any more when I plug it with the USB cable, and the battery always displays the lightning (charging) even if it isn't connected to anything.

Thanks

Probably this is a step further
(I added another "kindlevncviewer" in the directory because probably I wasn't supposed to copy the whole folder named "kindlevncviewer" in my kindle root but only the internal folder called the same way "kindlevncviewer"),
so, can you tell me whether I've done a step further and what's the new problem? :-)

[root@kindle root]# /mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh 192.168.2.1:1 &
[root@kindle root]# com.lab126.powerd failed to set value for property preventScreenSaver (0x3)
25/09/2014 22:46:29 ConnectToTcpAddr: connect
25/09/2014 22:46:29 Unable to connect to VNC server
com.lab126.powerd failed to set value for property preventScreenSaver (0x3)

Thanks!

No thought required, just look.

Just telnet into the kindle and try to list that path/filename.
ls -l /mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh
( that is dash ell == means long -- same as on your Mac)

If not there, un-do what you have done and re-read step 2.A
(Which means that one directory, found in Hawhill's archive.)

Toggle USBnetworking off and the Kindle should go back into "mass storage" mode so you can see the files over the USB cable.
(I.E: repeat 3.a-i..ii)

That's from kindlevncserver, so the software works at this point. Now it's your network setup and/or server configuration you need to fix. The kindle can't connect back to the host PC at this point. Maybe you misconfigured the VNC server, maybe you misconfigured a firewall, maybe the IP settings of the USB network interface. That's where you need to look next.
