Changes to /home/root/start.sh

Code:
# start toolbar and wait till it runs
#/usr/bin/matchbox-panel --size 39 --no-menu --bgcolor White --no-session --default-apps mb-applet-icon-container &
/usr/bin/matchbox-panel --size 39 --bgcolor White --no-session --default-apps mb-applet-clock,mb-applet-icon-container &
app=mb-applet-icon-container
Lines that begin with # are comments and are ignored.

The above change inserts the applet-clock and enables the pop up menu. I'm still working on how to pop up the pop up menu.

I'm working on preparing the needed applet clock upload right now (dinner time here)

This file goes in /usr/bin.

Source is available from the Debian site.

You can read about the options that control it on the match box site: http://projects.o-hand.com/matchbox/...ual/panel.html

Well at least you managed to upgrade to 2.7.1. For me the device hangs after restarting.

Now now... you should have known better, right? Didn't iRex warn beta testers that the upgrade would disable the discovered exploits?

so you forgot the & at the end of the line.

Scotty, I'd pull this update - or make it shell-clickable. Updating startup.sh is one of the most dangerous things to do on the Iliad.

You misunderstood me. The device hung when updating to 2.7.1 on a bog standard device. Nevermind, after walking counter clockwise around it while reading the release notes backwards I reset it and now it works. Thank heaven for that, I've become quite addicted to it in the two months I've had it.

ok I am much relieved for you. Anyway, the warning still stands:

Changing startup.sh is really dangerous. If you get it wrong you will brick your iliad.

TadW, ask tribble to sign a NDA if you have some other hack for him.

If I ever setup a business sometimes and I do a NDA, I will allow for mimic communication without the support of paper. Only face and hand gestures. I can imagine the YouTube videos.
