Err. yeah. The code is up for this one Andy.

Can easily take a poke around.
Bob, you don't know how funny you are. Just cause I hang out here, doesn't mean I understand 1/4 of what I read. That's half the fun of it. (I don't know what the other half is)

svn checkout http://kindle-explorer.googlecode.com/svn/ kindle-explorer-read-only

'svn' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

(sigh) Whatever happened to, "Bad command or file name."

actually, I'm not surprised that I don't have subversion installed, since we use TortoriseSVN. I thought maybe SVN was... maybe it is out there someplace, not in the path.

Anyway, I poked hfpop's source.
  1. CPP, that's C++, right?
  2. #define EDITOR "/mnt/us/extensions/leafpad/bin/leafpad" That's the line I want to change... I think that's called a macro, right? although it looks kinda like a constant...
  3. and then, you want me to compile it on an OS I know next to nothing about, in an environment I know even less about, using all kinds of mystical, magical libraries...
  4. If it'd been in TurboPascal 4.x I might have had a chance. If it'd been in FORTRAN, I might have had a chance. VB5 or VBA, a little shakier, but possible. COBOL... you're out on shaky ground. Any of this OOPs stuff, forget it.
  5. I was able to compile Wolfenstein once I found the correct version of TurboPascal, I was able to compile PrBoom with MFC 5, but only about 1/4 of my changes did what I wanted, I was able to get a clean compile on my Doom editor, whatever it was, but NONE of my changes worked there...
Consider the code poked, but I might like to take a look at the original code for 1.5 if you can tell me where (and how) to get it.

#define EDITOR "/mnt/us/extensions/leafpad/bin/leafpad"
That reads to my like a define of the **default** editor.
Where 'EDITOR' is one of the standard *nix environment variables.

Try just resetting it to the path of the editor you want to use when running whatever program:
Code:
EDITOR=/path/name/and/file/name/of/editor  whatever_program_name

Is there any way to use Kindle Explorer and have root access.

Hmm... does it not have root access?

Really?

If I had to guess that is related to the RO status of the Root Partition rather than any shortcoming in the permissions of the app.

So... Launch kterm. mntroot rw
That should do it.

remember to switch it back after you fiddle:


Question: What is it that you need to fiddle about with on the root?
Sounds.... unwise....

But meh. It's your device. Don't brick that paperwhite though. NIGHTMARE to unbrick.

HTH

Thanks! That did it. Once I'd entered the command in kterm I was able to use KE to overwrite a png file. Until I had root access I could not do this. What is the command for undoing the root access so I don't mess up. Thanks again!

On the paperwhite, there is an alternate set of keyboard files that give a lager 'key cap'

Also note that the key-mapping file was just updated this morning .

Is there in fact a key for the underscore character? I looked at all the key sets but could not find it.

Which key map file are you using (as in, post the link)?
Is that the most recent one nasser posted this morning?

right of the 0 (zero character)

when SHIFT is engaged.

(just like on a regular keyboard )

Thanks. Your mntroot rw info did it for me tho, so I can make my tweaks using KE instead. I am guessing the command "mntroot ro" will undo the access... I will give it a try so I don't mess up my PW.
