You should be able to build the kernel's nbd client as a kernel module, same as you did for other "missing" modules.
client on the Kindle, server on something else + a really good Wifi connection.

yeah that would be a wandering logic thingy...
looks like a bugarooni.

try pressing it 3 times (a possible coding indicator that the first press is being "missed" or ignored for some stateful reason)

TEST:
When keyboard is hidden:

Headings: attempt - likely internal process - result
Press 1 show - miss - no keyboard
Press 2 hide - hit - still no keyboard
Press 3 show - hit - keyboard YAY!


so try it three times when that happens.. that works I think. HTH

Mini keyboard in landscape mode. Replace the file keyboard-mini in the "layouts".

A bit of explanation here.
Problem is that I don't know how to check if system keyboard is open (in a simple way). So if you open keyboard with button, program knows it is open and then pressing button again will close it.
However in case the keyboard is opened automatically you shouldn't try to close it with a button, because program thinks it is closed and tries to open it. First button press does nothing then. Second press will close it.
When keyboard is opened automatically by system, close it pressing somewhere outside the entry field. When focus is removed from entry box the keyboard will close automatically.

It's posiible with lipc-get-prop tool:
Code:
lipc-get-prop com.lab126.keyboard show
Will output 0 if keyboard is closed, 1 otherwise.

Thanks for the explanation. : ) I didn't know those details, very helpful.

I have simply created another loader script that enables me select the orientation and conditionally return the relevant rotation. small detail but thought I would say it.

Thanks very much indeed for your work on this. Greatly appreciated.

Send your Paperwhite to the developer, I am sure he would be willing to give it a try.

Hi baf

Getting a bit of
"No accelerated colorspace conversion found from yuv420p to blah"
might not hurt to build against x264, libx264-dev, and ffmpeg?

Quote:

x264 ¶

H.264 video encoder. The following commands will get the current source files, compile, and install x264. See the x264 Encoding Guide for some usage examples.

cd
git clone --depth 1 git://git.videolan.org/x264
cd x264
./configure --enable-static
make


Note: You can download the nightly x264 source snapshot as an alternative to using git.
from https://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/wiki/...mpilationGuide

cheers mate

EDIT: AH phooey. posted this in not quite the right thread again.

ah well. you know what I mean
