but I don't see why not in the end

Okay so.... Getting this going on the PW via Kterm and KUAL

Basically Install Kterm (version 0.4 with the command support is required)
Install Kindle Unified Application Launcher

Install Binaries from Top post I installed dialog in /mnt/us/usr/bin as that is in my custom path. Do what is best for your setup, plenty of advice in the top post

Use the amended extensions launcher bundle (attached). replace the FROTZ entries that you have if necessary. Fvek has kindly updated the top post with an updated launcher script set. Use that.

shove a game in /mnt/us/if (freefall pictured)

enjoy.

I installed the newest launcher, copied the kterm and frotz folder into my extensions folder, created a bin folder, and copied "frotz", ".dialogrc", and "dialog" into it, and created a "if" folder and copied a zcode adventure there.

But the launcher shortcut isn't working for me; it just flashes "/mnt/us/extensions/frotz/bin/start_frotz_shell.sh" at the bottom of the screen for a moment, and boots me back to the home screen.

I can launch kterm from the launcher fine, and I can manually launch frotz through kterm.

I updated the first post with a new version (1.1.2) set up for kterm and KUAL.

Curudan: I think your problem is that twobob's fix above uses the scripts from xterm that cause kterm to not run right (the same one's I forgot to edit properly too ) Use my new version and it should work (hopefully).

Thanks very much all for bringing this current

Which is not the installation layout that twobob reported as working above.

Thank you very much!

The new script works perfectly.

yep

you need to specify a location in full

I go for

/mnt/us/if/whatever.sav

that will work. HTH

EDIT: perhaps we could ask the author to fix that. if we asked REALLY nicely : D

Saving:

Save files will be in /mnt/us/extensions/frotz/bin/ (this is not ideal, but it'll have to do until I figure out how to change it).
Yeah... that's seemingly not working.

Thanks for pointing it out

Is there any way to get zblorb files to run?

I tried replacing ZCODE with ZBLORB in "frotz_sh", but it didn't work.
