It looks like you can find it under "/usr/share/contentlister/mode/en/" for English. In this dir you have the following directories:
1_setup/
2_profiles/
3_reference/
4_recentdocs/
a_CF/
b_MMC/
c_USB/
d_main/

Where each directory containing a manifest.xml and an icon.

So, it seems to be quite simple to change the order in which the items are listed.

Indeed, they are sorted on directory name. Be sure to change it either for all languages, or only the current one:
Code:
lang=`grep "language" /var/er_registry.txt |cut -d'=' -f 2 |cut -d'_' -f 1`
Oh and you should probably access it via the /var/mode/ symlink

The biggest problem I find with the iLiad is that there is only one way to change the page and after a while it can get tiresome, or you just want to hold the page in your right hand.

What I would like to see would be perhaps an onscreen icon (when in book mode) that would toggle the hard buttons (category and arrows) so that they would act as a page back page forward.

This would allow for more comfort when using the device for extended periods and also extend the life of the page turn bar.

Hoepfully some food for thought

Well, it's not a 2-liner but in this zip file there is two scripts that can be used for reorganising the listing in Device Manager.

Unzip the file, copy the directory reorganise_main_menu to the iLiad and select Reorganise Main Menu in the Content Lister. This will change the order of the entries in Device Manager from Setup, Profiles, Reference, Recent Docs, CF, MMC, USB, Main Memory to Recent Docs, CF, Main Memory, MMC, USB, Reference, Setup ,Profiles.

To restore to the original order select Restore Original Main Menu in the Content Lister.

I hope you don't mind, that I modified your scripts a bit to link to "Recent Documents" folder instead.

By the way, great job on the script and thanks for sharing with us


As with yokos scripts, all 4 buttons are included here too.

THANK YOU, mtas!
Hey Matthijs, if it is that easy, why isnt it already available as an option on the iLiad?

You're welcome, I'll try to make the script a little more flexible. Right now it's too easy to mess it up if you try to change it.

Thank you, Antartica, yokos, and mtas! Such seemingly simple changes make the iLiad that much more user friendly. Hope these changes will be incorporated into 2.9. I'd hate to lose 'em.

"reorganise_main_menu" script for 4 Languages

Thank you, mtas. This is working.
Your script was written for the English iLiad menu, so I changed the line "DIR=/usr/share/contentlister/mode/en" to get support for German [de], Nederlands [nl], & simplified Chinese [zh].

[EDIT I] @orion: Cool, I just forgot the "Recent Documents".
[EDIT II] Attached script is now obsolete, because mtas has updated the script.

You're welcome, regarding the language issue I'm working on a language agnostic version with a separate configuration file where the order of the items can be defined. The earlier one is really a bit too risky, too easy to mess something up if you try to edit it.

Here's a new and safer version of the script. This one checks what language that is used and uses a config file (new_order.txt) where the desired menu order can be defined.

Also, it adds some sanity checks such as verifying that all menu entries are defined in the config file. If the sanity check finds an error a log file named error_log.txt will be created.
