Special Keys on Kindle 3

Hi,

Hope this is more worthwhile - it seems on K3 the special keys like K3_KEY_AA do not work.

L = #'K3_KEY_AA'

and similar type "k" or "K" into the search box instead of showing the appropriate menu. I would like to create a hotkey to turn the screen, but this makes it impossible, I'm afraid.

Thanks for help!

thank you for pointing to this. The correct default name for this key is k3_aA, so
Code:
L = #'k3_aA'
works. See below for builtin definitions of other K3-specific keys

Code:
	{ K3KEY_AA, "k3_aA" },		// 	190
	{ K3KEY_SYM, "k3_Sym" }, 		//	126
	{ K3KEY_HOME, "k3_Home" }, 	//	102
	{ K3KEY_BACK, "k3_Back" }, 	//	158

	{ K3KEY_PGFWD, "k3_>" }, 	//	191
	{ K3KEY_LPGBCK, "lk3_<" }, 	//	193
	{ K3KEY_LPGFWD, "lk3_>" }, 	//	104

	{ K3KEY_VPLUS, "VPlus" }, 		//	115
	{ K3KEY_VMINUS, "VMinus" }, 	//	114

	{ K3KEY_FW_UP, "k3_FW_Up" }, 	//	103
	{ K3KEY_FW_DOWN, "k3_FW_Down" }, 	//	108
	{ K3KEY_FW_PRESS, "k3_FW_Press" } 	//	194
Note: custom key name definitions can be used any time -- just provide the
correct keydefs.ini file and restart the launchpad.

HTH,

h1uke thanks!

Works for me now. One thing I wasn't able to implement though is a hotkey sequence to open the experimental browser from anywhere. Shouldn't this work?

B = #'k3_Home' 'Menu' 'k3_FW_Down' 'k3_FW_Down' 'k3_FW_Down' 'k3_FW_Down' 'k3_FW_Down' 'k3_FW_Down' 'k3_FW_Down' 'k3_FW_Press' 'k3_FW_Up' 'k3_FW_Press'

The best result I get is being left on the Experimental page, but often not even there. There seems to be a problem with timeouts or pauses between screens, as if the kindle sometimes didn't buffer the keystrokes...

I wanted to try this to install FBReader, but the installation procedure says:
Quote:
To install:
- unpack the attached lpad-pkg.zip archive on your desktop
- under lpad-pkg subdirectory, select the Kindle update package for your device model and copy it to your device under /mnt/us
- apply the standard Amazon Kindle update procedure
But where do I find /mnt/us?

@WS64: It's the root directory when you plug your Kindle to a computer.

/mnt/us/ directory is, actually, the root user directory, as you see
it on your kindle when connected in a standard way.
It is visible as /mnt/us for those who use usbNetwork and ssh/telnet connection
to access their devices.

Thanks NiLuJe and h1uke!
I actually was afraid having to install the usbnetwork for this which I failed with once already.

Well, I thought of a good keyboard shortcut that I thought I would share:

Z = !dbus-send --system /default com.lab126.powerd.resuming int32:1

That way, when I load stuff over SSH WiFi, I can press Shift+Z to rescan (Alt-Z only rescans the pictures directory)

I want to make a shortcut for a browser. Does anyone succeed in launching a browser?

Now it has a new InterKeyDelay option in [Settings] section of launchpad.ini .
This option specifies the number of millisicends to wait before sending the next simulated
keystroke. With the default value of 300ms the otichy's key sequence from his post above succeeds.
Just get the fresh archive at the top of this thread and try.

I installed the new version but the lauchpad didn't work. Any command simply shows as texts in a search box.

I confirm that it didn't work due to a stupid typo. Sorry about that.
Please download the package again.
