Thanks @nasser!
We now know that kterm works at least on following devices: KT, KT3, PW1, PW2, PW3. I didn't even know there are so many of them .

Would somebody with the most recent kTerm installed on a KT-3 please check something for us?

You will also need Bluetooth speakers recognized by the KT-3 for VV (VV is pre-installed on the KT-3).

Make sure (while viewing something other than kTerm) that the two finger touch enables VV over Bluetooth (it is suppose to).

Now bring up kTerm and try that test again -
Does the two finger touch still control VV?
Does the two finger touch bring up the kTerm menu?
Both?
Neither? ( )

I've been trying to figure out how to install software packages in kterm. configure files need a c compiler installed, and to install the compiler I need to run configure for that... How can I do this?

What software packages? Our packages all install with MrPI.
Define your goal.

You can't (should not) install anything to the root filesystem.
Lack of room, waste of time - they will be all overwritten at the next update.

Compiling on the Kindle itself takes a lot expert set-up, you had better tell us just what you are trying to do.

I guess I misunderstood how kterm works. My goal was really just to show off before friends and have fun, so I was thinking apt first, so that I could install other stuff easily later, and then things like nmap, sudo, maybe a torrent client, and just generally any linux app that comes to mind. So it doesn't work like that. Oh well.

Also, I have looked into it a bit more and I think I know how to do it, but it's kind of not my level. I believe if one was to cross-compile a linux app for armv71 and then move it to the kindle and run it with kterm, that would work. Right? However, I don't think I'm up to figuring out how exactly to do this ). Thanks a lot for your help

That hadn't even occured to me. Looks super cool. I might try.

@baf, the SHIFT+right and SHIFT+left keys used to move to the beginning/end of the line. They don't anymore (but they do shift the console text to start at the line before the first line in the buffer -- unintuitive as that may be).

Also, I keep feeling like there is not enough visual notice that a key has been pressed, or in the case of SHIFT/CTRL/ALT is currently "held down".
I actually liked the 0.7 way of graying the key.

Thanks for feedback! You are right. The problem is that those keys shouldn't be used together with shift modifier, because the action should not be SHIFT+right but only right key. I fixed it by moving the keys to different layout layer. You will have to press "ã/F" instead of shift. You may adjust you keyboard layout yourself before I prepare new package. See the changes here.

BTW you may move the cursor to the beginning of line by pressing KT physical home button.

This one is tricky. I tested different options, but changing key color causes ugly effects on slow e-ink screen. Some users also observed similar problems with matchbox-keyboard kterm. For now I chose a compromise, so that the effect is visible but not disturbing. At the same time I realize that the visual effects may look different on various e-ink devices or even on the same kindle model under different conditions.

I will put on my todo list a feature, that the key visual effect could be user configurable.
