I was thinking about what would be desirable on a unified gui collection ,

and I came to this;

Games>
chess ( pbchess for me this moment )
sudoku
sokoban
reversi
tic tac toe
ataxx
gems
...

Apps >
alternative reader ( I donīt know one at this moment )
komic
visual notepad ( I donīt know one at this moment )
chat/irc client
( such http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=179533 )
a music stream player client ( I donīt know one at this moment
email interface ( gmail,hotmail...) - notifier ? -
calculator
audio recorder ( couldnīt get to work yet , but would be cool on collection )

Draw>
draw tool
move to images
image viewer

Hidden>
auto generate collections (collectionsync )
orientation ( maybe adding the acelerometer option ? )
landscape web browser
disable/enable screensaver
network info
xterm
update launcher
start usbnetwork

And maybe xterm and update launcher again on main menu ?

-----

This is just a guess on what would be top level for me in terms of final usability on a gui collection .

In fact i found this other thread where much have been discussed ;

Thanks TulseLuper, I'll take a look into some of these apps and see what I can do. At the moment I'm working on adding a converter to the audio recorder so you can play recorded audio in the mp3 player. I'll get to it eventually though. Thanks again for your input, I hope I can help.

Hi Titano,

I just got a KT, upgraded it to 5.1.0, and JB'ed it with un, GUILauncher and jbpatch. Sorry for not understanding. Would you please tell me exactly how to install your package.

Do I unzip everything directly into the 'extensions' folder? Then SSH and execute 'install.sh'? There is an 'collections.zip' file within the package.

Thanks,
James

Hi James

You may now paste the folder [collections] , containing the zipped collections.zip - no , you wont extract it , the install.sh will do this -and those *.sh as install.sh into extensions folder.

You will have extensions/collections/[containing, collections.zip and the *.sh ]

As you sad you already installed gui launcher . you can acess xterm from gui launcher.

enter xterm ,

then type "cd /mnt/us/extensions/collections/"

this will get you into the folder

you can check with "ls" on xterm

then simply type "./install.sh"

you will see the progress ; it may restart ; and then you should be good to go.

as usual , you can type "exit" to get out xterm

Thanks TulseLuper.

This works well. Except I do not have Xterm with my GUI Launcher so I used SSH through USB cable.

Best Regards,
James

You don't need to use xterm or usbnetwork, all you have to do is restart (or killall cvm) your kindle after you have copied the collections folder. for you help TulseLuper, your way does work and when I finish this version then I will try to explain it better.

Thatīs all right !

I just tend (or try to ) be eminently explicit with these things, since every moment is learning , being clear with some things - like the exact way to grab track of the rabbit's hole - shows to be pretty economical too at second tought.

As iīm not a developer at all -and neither english speaker-, i tend to see that little lacks of information lead to some kind of alienation from the process itself, what is quite normal these days , but at least for me I fell like when things are self explainable we can open a great space for real exchange of experience and will !

Getting back;

Maybe itīs just the dialetical exercise of doubt , and the will that much more people can - at least for a moment - apropriate back from theirīs own experience itself and from the experience with the things,,..,

- -

Or this is the long way of saying that making developing user friendly - yes, user-friendly development - may be really a good path.

Discrete computing and interfaces makes people really dumb some times...

And every day, I love more the long way - But i canīt remember all the names of the streets. Or a dozen oh phone numbers.

or better, in other words, maybe the shortcuts never work for me

No problem, thanks for telling me about that app (I had no clue). I don't have time right now to add it to the main version (I will) but I can upload it for you (most of the work was already done). Attached is a zip, extract it and copy all the files (menu.json, config.xml, and the folder KinGo) to your games folder in extensions on your kindle. I hope I helped.

Updated again. Now includes the games Frotz and KinGo as well as the timed screenshot utility and the installer now as a prompt. I also fixed an error with komic.
