Paperwhite: ssh page turn?

Has anyone worked out how to turn pages from the shell via ssh? I've experimented with some incantations of lipc-set-prop trying to send a message to the reader. i.e.

Code:
lipc-set-prop com.lab126.acxreader gotoPosition 1234
and so on, but no luck. Any ideas?

hmm. I seem to recall that I have some apps that can "pretend" to send keypresses.

If you have no joy natively I will have a hunt about

I don't *think* that there is any easy command-line way (but I may be wrong) - most of the reader logic seems to be hardcoded inside the Java classes.

twobob's idea of simulating taps may be the most promising approach.

Thanks, I found this http://www.fabiszewski.net/kindle-untouchable/ and tried modifying it without any luck so far.

Would be great if you find something that works. I'm not sure if sending PgUp/PgDown keyboard symbols would work on the Paperwhite - of course MouseEvents would though. Something like xdotool would work if it's compilable, although that's overkill.

okay. I will have a think.

I have xdotool for all the kindles (in fact I have post in up here somewheres)
if that is all you need to solution is already posted.

if not let me know what you want.

bit of extra info. I think you only actually need to reference the xdotool lib - the x11r6 one is native IIRC.
