This tutorial (http://tinyapps.org/docs/e-ink-monitor.html) says to telnet:
1. /etc/init.d/netwatchd stop
2. /etc/init.d/powerd stop
What does they do and why I don't have to start them later?
If I start with SHIFT+VU, will these 2 be executed?

Is it possible to replace

elseif code == KEY_HOME then
Quit()

with

elseif code == KEY_HOME then
!killall kindlevncviewer

I'm still unsure why the Quit() would not work. I guess something else is getting in between. Then your suggestion wouldn't work either. When you want to execute programs from Lua, you have to use os.execute("here goes the command"), e.g. os.execute("killall kindlevncviewer"). Well, try to see if that fixes your problem.

I rather guess the K2 has some slightly differing key codes. You can use Lua's "print(...)" function to print some debug output to the standard output - so try if you manage to find out the right key codes. I would be interested :-)

I used spacebar instead. Quit() works, os.execute("killall kindlevncviewer") works too. If I use home for both, kindle freezes, but I can still use "killall kindlevncviewer" via telnet.

do you mean
elseif code == KEY_HOME then
print(KEY_HOME)
?

nah, I meant to introduce the print() as e.g. print("code is", code) before the full if sequence or similar.

But I guess when it _freezes_, it will rather be something outside the viewer or some kind of race condition. I guess it won't be so easy to track down. But of course, you can also do something like you wrote to check whether the code gets executed at all. But don't invest too much time when you have a good workaround already.

The volume keys are controlled by the Kindle system and not available to applications. Home is reserved for exiting applications and is not available for use by the application.

Those limits apply to java kindlets, not to native apps such as this, which can use the volume keys. You can also use the volume buttons in scripts that use the "watiforkey" command to read them.

It works! I'm so happy now.

I tried remove Home command completely, i expected default action to return home. Didn't help.

Step to victory:
i noticed "set_k3_keycodes()" in config.lua and removed this line!
It is OK now.

If we check keys.lua, we wil find, that K3 uses different codes:
function set_k3_keycodes()
KEY_AA = 190
KEY_SYM = 126
KEY_HOME = 102
KEY_BACK = 158
KEY_PGFWD = 191
KEY_LPGBCK = 193
KEY_LPGFWD = 104
KEY_VPLUS = 115
KEY_VMINUS = 114
KEY_FW_UP = 103
KEY_FW_DOWN = 108
KEY_FW_PRESS = 194
end

Default Home is set to:
KEY_HOME = 98

I suppose Kindle 2 and DX use default values. What values take Kindle 4?

My next problem:
autostart
1. /etc/init.d/netwatchd stop
2. /etc/init.d/powerd stop

If I add these lines to config.lua, will it work?

os.execute("/etc/init.d/netwatchd stop")
os.execute("/etc/init.d/powerd stop")

How can I start them after I quit KVV automatically? I want to use config.lua.
If it is not possible, I will try to use launchpad, but it will be not automated.

Thanks for the tip on large mouse pointer in Windows. I discovered thereafter that "Universal Access Preferences" in Mac does the same (much better than the "Highlighter application" in my previous post).

By the way, did someone more experienced than me work on keyboard integration for Mac? Currently, the "alt" key in Kindle is mapped to Command etc and I could not find the way to change key assignment (for normal keys it's easy; I failed in changing the assignments for function keys --shift, command, alt etc.)

I hope that with a good keyboard integration + "Mouse Keys" one can wholly control the computer from within Kindle. (assigning joystick controller moves to mouse moves would be great, for instance)

@ Rockets00: password works for me to connect to "Vine Server" in Mac via telnet. I use this command: /mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh -password mama 192.168.2.1 &

FYI:
For those with Raspberry Pi and archlinuarm the usbnet fires straight up with:
#ifconfig usb0 192.168.2.1 up

I just need to figure out the x config start up for the best display on the Kindle.
Any suggestions?

Errrm, something like the xinit command line mentioned in the OP? :-)

Nice idea to use a Raspi plus the Kindle. Makes a compact but nice interface. However, as a desktop platform I don't find this very useful as the Raspi should not really be much faster than the Kindle is. But as a frontend when building stuff with the Raspi, it's certainly nice.
