This version Autodetects the FB type.
It's job is for BROKEN screen kindles... It will auto-scroll the content Left or Right / Up or Down. when you turn a page in a book. Well actually any time you press the RIGHT HAND SIDE PAGE FORWARD OR
PAGE BACK BUTTONS (I did not affect the LEFT HAND SIDE one to give you options)
BY DEFAULT - It will move the Framebuffer 5% to the left (as this was the requirement of the OP who I modded it for) but...
scroll percent (-100->100) (will go in reverse) 5% default
See here https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...7&postcount=35
for more detail on using the ranges...
update type (0-2)
0 = no flash (fast, but slight ghosting)
1 = quality (full flash update, cleanest display) <- Default
2 = speed (very fast, black and white only)
21 = Inverted !
support debug output (into stdout via ssh only)
1= X 0=Y (move in that axis) X is Default
You can add those into the right place in /extensions/scroller/bin/autoscroller and make it do anything you want. (just look in the file - I indicated where)
Just press the KUAL button. it will stay on until you go to screensaver
To Turn Off:
simply POWER CYCLE - that means click the screensaver on manually. If you accidentally let it go to screensaver while reading (HOW SLOW DO YOU READ???) you will have to click it on again. no big hardship.
Well I think that is everything. Enjoy.
And thanks to GM for his original code.
Extra note. It IS possible to have the scrolling work faster. But chapter starts take longer to load and are "missed"
The first page loaded wont actually "move". page back / forward to move it.
EDIT: Fixed a bug where Y movement was ignored
EDIT: No I didnt fix that stupid error - BUT NOW I DID! derp!
NOTE: Don't USE A NEGATIVE Y VALUE
... Nor a value above 100
Use a value over 50 to get the same effect.
