Thanks for this reminder! I will try to look at it when I have some spare time.
For many onscreen keyboards, pressing "space" tells the system to replace the correctly-spelled word that you just typed with a "more popular" incorrect word.

Thanks.

@geekmaster: I thought I would tell you that twobob recently gave me 11126 in karma for absolutely nothing.

I went through quite a few debian browsers. of the ones that ran with minimal messing around I found skipstone to be an excellent peer. Nice one.

and comparatively very responsive. a credit to your port.

Oh God. When I saw these color screenshots, my heart stopped for a second in shock because at first glance I've believed that they were made on [imaginary] Kindle Color.

nice find

yeah, it really still would be nice to have an option for the native browser to support it but meh. Fun to play with.

OT: I did get vlc player running very nicely - with surprisingly great eink management, would have to port it to get the sound going I would imagine

: )

playing with games right now. finding out what runs decently before wasting effort on a port. Happy fun.

twobob just had to re-paint the e-ink spheres to do that.
Too trivial a modification to be worth a post.

I noticed that some sound problems in dos1 chrooted scenario are related to running as non-priviledged user.

yeah. good call. I managed to get KDE to make some noises, without any massage of the underlying kindle sound daemon. So it is possible.

Really struggling to get Xephyr to switch to a 800x600 mode though.

tried http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...0&postcount=27 which is $SETPROP com.lab126.winmgr orientationLock $1 but it's just reset to U far as I can tell, or ignored.

I am guessing I need to invoke the underlying server in the alternate 800x600x0 (or whatever the exact name is, I will check) but I'm not sure. certain I could test more games positively if I can get this going. Thoughts gratefully accepted

Did you try setting O argument in window title?
O defaults to U and, as far as I understand, it declares possible orientations of the window.
Try setting "L:A_N:application_ID:xephyr_O:R" (or O:URL for multiple possible orientations) title before running /usr/bin/lipc-set-prop com.lab126.winmgr orientationLock R.

Can not patch from 0.6 to 1.0.1

Hello,

This is my first writing in this forum and i hope i am here right.

My problem:
I installed SkipStone 0.6 successfully but
i try to patch to 1.0.1.

My question is where i have to do the skipstone-0.6.patch file and how are the introductions to patch it then?

Best regards

Paperwhite has no sound, so I haven't thought about that, but it should be easy to fix - user should belong to audio group.

root@kindle:/# usermod -a -G audio me

noted. I will give that a try

EDIT: Hmm . not sure yet. Root definitely still gets some "preferences". or seems to. I'll try to document it.
