I figured it out. I took launchpad's files which I had back ups saved on my computer from and edited those to work with kiterm. I also then realized when I was rereading this thread that I didn't chmod +x the file. At least I got it working now and I love it. I've been playing around with apps to see which ones work the best on the kindle. My biggest complaint is how the status bar from the kindle keeps popping up so I created and alias that closes the framework and another that restarts it. I think a great improvement would be to do something like duokan and be able to either start the kindle in command line or framework mode. My next project is to figure out how to compile apps directly on the kindle.

I still can't get it running in full screen. I downloaded the package from here.
The command-prompt is also changed from "[root@kindle root] #" to only "/ #" for some reason. Does anyone know what am I missing?

Also, is there any workaround to make the fonts a bit bigger? Cheers!!

Thanks for this AWESOME app! I've installed this and the "optware" NSLU package manager and now I've got a full on, usable system on my Kindle. I can even play bsdgames .

I've sucessfully installed it, but, that would be great if someone do an update_*_install.bin to be able to install it, just as the other hacks :

This is an amazing app, perfect for turning the kindle into a standalone device.

Except for one problem.

I can only get this to run if I run "# /mnt/us/kiterm/myts.arm" over SSH. As you can see this is a problem if I ever want to use the terminal apart from my home network and laptop.

I tried to fix it by uninstalling launchpad. Big surprise, I get the "U007" error and a failed update, which I had also gotten when trying to install duokan until I gave up and install over SSH. So I then decided to prevent it by starting. I backup up the launchpad files in init.d and rcS.d using winSCP. I then remounted root as read only and deleted them. After a reboot SHIFT+T still didn't bring up the terminal.

I'm getting to the point where I'll back everything up and just restore my kindle to factory default and try again.

I think it would be really cool to have a native debian install on my kindle...

Still have launchpad installed? http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=154500

is better than mine

I managed to run this on my Kindle Touch. When I run myts.arm, it prompts:

listen on 127.0.0.1:8022
select returns 0


and when I browse localhost:8022 in my browser, it gives an error. As a quick question, what do you get on your Kindle 3s guys?

I used the newer version (myts6) from matan with launchpad. It worked quite nicely (and it comes with the launchpad script). The keydefs were for DX, but K3 keydefs were published in that thread...

Launchpad of Kiterm

Hello guys

As I haven't managed to install "h1uke's Launchpad" because of U007 error while update, I tried to use in-build launchpad of Kiterm with "customizable" /mnt/us/kiterm/launchpad.ini conf file for starting of some scripts and it works pretty well.

Can you please tell me what are main differencies between "h1uke's Launchpad" and in-build launchpad of Kiterm I'm using?

Will I be able to manage 3rd party applications (e.g. mplayer) with "Launchpad of Kiterm" the same way as "h1uke's Launchpad" do?

Thanks for your answers

Rasty
