Maybe some side-effect with the power-saving-machanisms, which aren't in use when the device is running on ac-power.

Oops it seems that I missed some code that would signal a card-eject.

Thanks for the update, the new features sound great.

Unfortunately, even though I managed to put version 4 of your patch, version 5 does not seem to work, I get a toolbar and a black screen. I did have the same issue with version 4 but it went away somehow, here it just stays. I believe it is the same issue that owl123 had.

The files were copied manually, when I use stuffit expander on macosx, it does not overwrite anything, put produces Programs1 etc on the device, so I unzip in a directory on the computer and then manually move and replace all the files in the correct positions. It has worked so far for all applications including version 4 of your patch, xournal, fbreader, leafpad, rxvt, midnightcommander, sudoku, gnuplot. Of course I could try to unzip from a terminal if i can remember all the required extensions ....

same result when I use unzip, the screen goes black and then begins to flicker; one can see that it is your patch though because the menu is useable and there is the "set as startpage option" ...

So, done the test. Everything works fine instead of the known bug with the menu after startup. I got the menu for the "normal" startup page (recently read) instead of the menu für epub reading on every boot (different battery levels).

I send you a PM requesting to zip your unzipped files (or maybe better to zip the Programs/_mackxpatch folder from the SD-card) and send them to me, to see if it has to do with unpacking/copying.

Yes the menu and the toolbar get refreshed with the same function, I need to do some debugging on that to see why it is going wrong. When you want the correct menus you can select the Folder-tab and then the document-tab again as a work-around.

I have no problem with the workaround.

I too cant get your new version to install. I have the same Mac issues as above.
I have also tried copying the files further up the directories.
The install shortcut appears to be correct but it doesnt seem to do anything.

I might have missed a library that is needed by zenity. Can you download the latest Xournal (dr-0.6) and copy the libraries (Programs/_base/libs) except poppler to your SD-card?

Or start: /media/mmcblk0p1/Programs/_mackxpatch/_apply.sh using rxvt and check the output.

I also can't get it to install.

In a moment of bad judgement I flashed the firmware and reset the device. Then I accidentally installed the Recent Files hack on the new firmware and got all kinds of weird behaviour, even after flashing again.

After some more flashing, I think it's working again (fingers crossed). But I can't install the new patch anymore. It simply doesn't do anything when I try to install. I can install version p4 but not p5.

Any ideas?

Edit: It seems I can't install anything anymore and this problem persists after firmware flashes, so probably not related to the latest patch. Too frustrated right now to look further into it though....

Mackx,
I'll have o do it tomorrow, however when you say copy the libraries, do you mean copy the Xournal library into the Mackpatch library ? Or do you just mean to make sure the libraries are actually in the _base folder? Presnetly I have in "_base":
libart_lgpi_2.so.2 and libgnomecanvas-2.so.0 and the libpoppler.so.3

regards, Howard

Yes I mean to copy them into /Programs/_base/lib (they should already be in there if you are using xournal). You should also have libglade-2.0.so.0 in there from the mackxpatch-zipfile? The /Programs/_base/ folder and its subfolders are used by several programs.

Is it possible to use rxvt as indicated a few messages up? The output would be interesting (if you still find energy to install patches that is...).

Mackx, there is no libglade-2.0.so.0

The problem appears to be the way the MAC copies things. In Windows, copying just copies the additional folders or changed files to the folders, in the MAC it appears to replace the Folder with the "copied" one so you don't always get everything copied over.

I just need to check the mackxpatch and xournal files are all where they should be now in the programs directory and then I'll try again tomorrow.
