Using Minimo on the iRex iLiad

It looks like iRex didn't cripple Minimo too much on the iLiad. After hacking a few configuration files, look what I can do.

Hopefully I can set it up so it's usable without having to launch it from the terminal.

Fan-frickin-tastic. Outstanding. A major new functionality for the iLiad, here. You rock. I can't wait to install it on my iLiad, and start browsing away...

Much applause!

There are a few kinks to it. The first (as always) is screen refreshes. It seems iRex didn't build them into minimo, so I have to rely on the modified libX11. Right now it does a full refresh, which can get quite annoying. I'll have to play around with the partial to see how well I can get that going.

The second is packaging, I've had to replace the default user style with that of another version of minimo. I'm not sure what problems this causes when viewing local html files from the contentlister. Perhaps I can run this as a standalone application from the memory card. I'll have to do more testing tomorrow.

I agree... if you have to change the config files to make minimo work properly, it seems like the simplest thing would be to package it as a separate standalone application and run it from the CF...

Of course, once 2.11 comes out and you start modifying the registry with installations, you'll have plenty of options...

Once again, excellent work!

Question Interesting

Sorry, I'm new and not techie.

So we are seeing this from a computer terminal and not the iliad? I am interested in browsing options for the Iliad - all seem to have problems so far.

It's being launched from a terminal, but everything is run and displayed on the iLiad.

A terminal is not a seperate computer terminal in this case.
It is started as a command line application and can not be run from the Content Lister.
There fore Adam uses a "terminal" where you can enter commands.
Try Start->Run... enter "cmd" and hit return. Thats a terminal under windows

For the iLIad we use this:

oh.. It is very perfect ability for iLiad. So power of php, apache and mysql can be used here... We don't need even web 2.0 application. Any old web application can be used. E-mail clients, rss readers, contacts etc.... Is it possible to control iLiad via php "exec" function.. etc...

HI Adam,

I'm not familiar with Linux command that much. Can you please tell me how to run minimo from the terminal. A bit detail.... . And when would you be able to set up minimo like your other packages so that we don't have to do everything from terminal? Thanks
