GTKSudoku Application Release

I've ported a Sudoku application for the DR1000.

This is definitely a cool application if you do Sudoku. You can generate new puzzles, or use some that have already been created. It has buttons to check if you have any errors, and also to solve the puzzle for you.

I can create regular 9x9 puzzles, and also the crazy large 16x16. It does take a little while to generate the 16x16 board and puzzle, so have patience the first time you select that.

To install: Unzip Sudoku.zip to the root of your SD card. For example, if your SD card shows up as the E:\ drive on your computer, you should have an E:\Programs folder after you unzip it.

After installing, you'll be able to select the Sudoku icon from the Documents/Programs folder on your device. From there you can press new for a new puzzle, or open to open an existing.


Note: the keyboard is off in the screenshot because it's running in the emulator. On the DR, the full keyboard is visible.

I did modify the sources a bit from the original program, so I've attached those as well.

Works, no problem. Not much good at Sudoku myself . Is it normal for the shortcut icon to be the same as FBReader's? (I moved the shortcut to the desktop, though)

Yeah it is. I still haven't found a way to setup custom icons. I suspect that's a feature iRex will have to add.

(Slightly O.T.) Probably. As I found out a while ago they are stored in the metadata.db of a given folder where the file/shortcut is located, rather than in the file/shortcut itself, which makes moving them around pretty much impossible.

On the upshot, it may be possible to decode that part of the metadata.db (as the scribble part already has) and write a (python) script to generate a metadata.db as a starting point.

We use the following script, should run on the device as well:

add_icons_to_database.sh
Code:
#!/bin/sh

set -e          # exit on error

die()
{
    echo "--- $*"
    exit 1
}

if [ $# -le 1 ]
then
    die "Must specify database as first parameter."
fi
database="$1"
shift

if [ $# -le 1 ]
then
    die "Must specify sort_priority as second parameter."
fi
sort_prio="$1"
shift

for file in $*
do
    filename="$file"
    file_type="${file##*.}"
    file_size=`stat -c '%s' $filename`
    file_time=`stat -c '%Y' $filename`
    sqlite3 "$database" "insert into file_metadata (filename, file_type, file_size, file_last_modified, sort_priority, is_directory) values ('$file', '$file_type', $file_size, $file_time, $sort_prio, 0);"
    sort_prio=`expr $sort_prio - 1`

    file_id=`sqlite3 "$database" "select file_id from file_metadata where filename='$filename';"`
    sqlite3 "$database" "insert into thumbnails (file_id) values ($file_id);"

    for size in mini small medium large
    do
        bitmap_file=`basename "$filename" ".$file_type"`
        bitmap_file="icon-${bitmap_file}-${size}.png"
        if [ -f "$bitmap_file" ]
        then
            column="thumb_data_$size"
            hexdump=`hexdump -v -e '/1 "%02x"' "$bitmap_file"`
            # hexdump=`od --output-duplicates --format=x1 --width=4 "$bitmap_file" | awk '{ printf("%s%s%s%s", $2, $3, $4, $5) }'`
            sqlite3 "$database" "update thumbnails set $column = x'$hexdump' where file_id = $file_id;"
        fi
    done
done


On topic: nice app, now move the top icons into the Popup Menu and we can ship it in the standard software

Thanks for the script, I'll have to add it in the next release.

I need to do more testing with hello_world. I still haven't got the menu to work in there.

The application uses the package name (hello-world) for its ipc service but a hyphen is not allowed in the dbus namespace. Try to change the package name or DBUS_APPL_NAME define in ipc.c. Now the popup menu should be filled with items.

Yes!

That did it! Now it looks like I have some work to do.

Thanks!

I believe you can have it on your Sony. It was done there first as I recall. Check the developers forum in the Sony group.
