Well I'd like to see them predict what I'll have for breakfast tomorrow with that information.

Lightbulb got screenshots

Finally i got the screenshots!

For those with the same problem saving images on draw tool you can make a screenshot inside the tool by ;

Pressing home for 2 seconds and with [home] still pressed, click/tap on a free space [or the existing save button]of the toolīs toolbar on the screen for about 1 second, then with home still pressed after 1 sec of the tap, click/tap again on a free space of toolbar mateinning both pressed, THEN RELEASE THE HOME BUTTON but with the free space still clicked/tapped.

This should do the work without getting out of Draw Tool every time you press home - what , avoid you from taking the needed shot.

As usual the screenshots go to /mnt/us and you can check out with that worked , by launching xterm and typing "cd /mnt/us" , ands after "ls" what will list the files on /mnt/us and youll can check with you got a succesful screenshot before plug-in-plug-out the kindle to PC .

"clear" to clear screen
"exit" to get ou xterm

At this moment Icant see the screenshots directly from inside kindle because imgviewr just dont launch for me .

Best wishes!

Maybe someone could write this as a .sh for me ?

Itīs stupid but I canīt realize how to make it right.

"mv /mnt/us/*.gif /mnt/us/images/screenshot"

All I know is that the command works on xterm...

Thanks!

Here this should down what you ask. If you want me to add it to your launcher just ask.

Quote:
#!/bin/sh
mv /mnt/us/*.gif /mnt/us/Images/ -f
By the way those images look great!

That must be on two lines, not one.
The text file line endings **must be** "Unix" (lf).
Don't let any of the software (such as Notepad) add a hidden .txt to the filename.

Your file should look like:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
mv /mnt/us/*.gif /mnt/us/Images/ -f
Those quote characters, if present in the file, mean something different to the shell program than to a person.

If you put that text in an sh and run it it should work if you want to run it from the launcher add this line to a menu.json. (Don't forget to change the priority)
Quote:
{"name": "Move Screenshots to Images", "priority": 3, "action": "mv /mnt/us/*.gif /mnt/us/Images/ -f "},
You can also just run this from xterm or usbnetwork hack.
Quote:
mv /mnt/us/*.gif /mnt/us/Images/
P.S. - I think this is a good idea to have because I like to view my screenshots without having to plug my kindle so I'm adding it to my launcher collection but first making an installer script because of komic (you have to add a line to /var/local/appreg.db or it won't work). If you just want to wait till later today, then I will upload a collection with this inside (kind of busy right now).

Forgive me, but do you have a Image folder on your kindle.... You need to have one in-order to copy files there..... My script will test to see if it's there (if -f, then, else) so you can wait till then or make a folder called Images. Again sorry if it seems like a stupid question but it is kind of important.

No problem at all ,

I even tough on saying back that I have those folder but itought it would be sillier ... hehehe


Yes ,

I have /mnt/us/images and mnt/us/images/screenshot

and even then it wonīt work

[ I read that making subfolder inside images we can scroll down without having to click back every image. - works great , appear as a "collection" ]


also, as sad ,

in xterm , when i call "mv /mnt/us/*.gif /mnt/us/images" it works great ; but it's a pain going term every time , right ?

Hmm.... I'll take a look into games.... Can you check if you have anything else that has a priority of two on your launcher for me? Please.....

P.S. - Names on linux are case sensitive. It has to be "Images" not "images".
