Yes.

The problem is that k3 launchpad scripts typically launch k3 apps, and many of those apps are not compatible with a k5 (needing a physical keypad, or different framebuffer layout, or other hardware-specific dependencies). But even those apps can be rewritten to support the k5.

Your thread title (and post title) is a bit misleading there... k5 on k5?

Hi,

Using the debug commands on the search bar, you can create launchpad-like functions on K5. You can create a new debug command such as ".XY" that will execute any .sh script you want. Please see the post

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2167928

Also, you can make the Kindle Store button execute an application or set a parameter with one action. I found this to be the easiest for an action that I perform many times as it requires only 1 or 2 taps. You can also make it perform different actions with each tap.

Please see the same post as above.

Thanks,
James

The question was about running K3 launchpad scripts on a K5 launcher. Most K3 scripts would require modification to work on a K5.
