For those interested, I threw together a little enhanced 'profile' file for myts. It is just a few aliases that might be useful, and that work on the Kindle, as well as a link to another file, a text file called about.txt', that runs upon startup of myts, and just lists the keyboard keys on the page. Easy peasy, and much better for me when I want to just hop on and off the terminal, but tire of having to check the "Back+LeftBack Key" all the time. I'll attach below.

In addition, if anybody uses the Midnight Commander File Browser, if you have that installed, you should be able to easily run in through myts via a simple alias (mc). Or, even better, uncomment 'mc' at the bottom of the 'profile' file and Midnight Commander will run automatically every time you run myts. Of course, only if you prefer that.

You can ssh over USB back into your computer (ssh over 3G doesn't work, but does work over wifi on Kindle 3). Another alternative is to have Debian armel in chroot or to extract correct parts from optware.

Smile how change font size by modify the source code

Note also that you have to provide a font with the desired width and height. The hex format is not standard but the source code includes a bdf2hex script to convert bdf to hex.
Hi, Matan. I want using a larger font size and I viewed the source code. I wonder whether the init_font function in font.c is the font reading function? If so, can I just modify this function and the below two lines in launchpad.c to change font size?

Code:
    if(setVal(sec, "FontHeight", 'i', &lps->fontheight)) lps->fontheight=16;
    if(setVal(sec, "FontWidth", 'i', &lps->fontwidth)) lps->fontwidth=8;
Can you give me some tips? Thanks in advance.

It is not as simple as that. I added support for width up to 16, but it is not too well tested.
You can use it from here. The package includes a 10x20 font.

Another (not well tested) feature is support for non-latin characters input. This uses and extra modifier for language characters, configured to be the Sym key by default. The configuration keys LangSymbols and LangSymbols16 define the input of keys pressed with this modifier in 8 bit and 16 bit (UTF8) modes.

Source.

Thanks a lot! I will try it. it is really nice thing!
By the way, Can you include a more larger font, such as 16*32. 10*20 is still small for me^_^

10x20 looks WAY better!

For rhose who don't know what exactly to do to enable it:
Change these three lines in the myths.ini file:
Font = 10x20.hex
FontHeight = 20
FontWidth = 10

Source.

I created two fonts myself, 14x28 and 16x26. The two fonts are created by double each binary bit of the char bitmap of the font 7x14 and 8x13, and also each horizon line of the char bitmap is doubled.

but when using these font, the terminal can not be started. After I press the key "Shift T T", a message "success!" echoed on the bottom of the screen, but the terminal don't popup.

Is this font right? or the program's issue.

Working nice :)

The only terminal so far that worked Kindle 3g, 3.3 firmware, works like breeze.
How about Midnight Commander? I have been searching on forums but can not decide which one fits, and so far I had to make a few resets already - could anyone point me to a description as to how to get Midnight Commander on my 3g Kindle?
