Hi. Can you share how did you get over the "undeclared or implicit tag 'mxcfb_update_marker_data'" problem as described in #48? I've encountered the same problem on a KPW3 and have been unable to get through it.
Thanks!

I have finally got it working on the Kindle PW3. Although I do not have a programming background, I've worked out a solution by WAG

1. Apply the fix in #47 (Disable model autodetection, always use carta_mxc_wait_for_update_complete)

2. Edit ffi/mxcfb_kindle_h.lua and add definition for mxcfb_update_marker_data
Code:
struct mxcfb_update_marker_data {
  unsigned int update_marker;
  unsigned int collision_test;
};
(https://github.com/koreader/koreader...b_kindle_h.lua)

3. Edit ffi/framebuffer_linux.lua in function kindle_carta_mxc_wait_for_update_complete(fb)
Change the ffi.C.MXCFB_WAIT_FOR_UPDATE_COMPLETE in return() to 0xc008462f
So that it looks like:
Code:
	return ffi.C.ioctl(fb.fd,  0xc008462f, carta_update_marker)
It should work on Kindle PW3 after the above changes.

I used some spare time to hack a bit on the VNC viewer I published here before, KindleVNCviewer (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=150434).

It is a major rework. It's not tested on Kindle 2, 3, DX, but it hopefully still works on those devices. It is however tested on Kindle PW1 and will probably run on K4, K5 (KT), KPW1 and KPW2. Also, a version for Kobos is available (announced in the Kobo developer forum). Thus, I decided a slight rename: It is now known as "kvncviewer" :-)

Source code is available on github in the old place: http://github.com/hwhw/kindlevncviewer

As it is a major redesign, I opened this new thread. For some scenarios, people might want to continue to use the old code.

The new code brings some new options. It is written in Lua, and that I took a bit further than with the old codebase, which used Lua for configuration, too. The new code is implemented using LuaJIT. It re-uses the framebuffer code from Koreader and is quite versatile. It allows for rotation options, b&w dithering on all devices, configurable refresh timeouts (though this won't make your screen faster than the hardware can do, but you might want to fiddle with the options and report your experiences here) and some more things I forgot about.

Attached is the compiled version for Kindles.
Could you please show me how to install this vnc to kindle,thanks!!!

I read all the post in this thread. However I could not find any instruction from scratch. I really need to run this trick. I have PW2, jailbrocken, with KUAL installed.
The instruction says, you have to unzip the folder into root. OK, but what about the rest? Where should I enter the command for initiating the connection!? I use windows 10.
I have sensitivity to LED lights and this is my only chance to make my eyes relax. Please help

This will not help you.
The frontlight of your PW-2 also uses LED lights.

Your only choice to avoid LED lights is to buy a basic kindle.

This would definitely help me. I do not turn on LED on Kindle. However, If I do, it doesn't bother me. The backlight technology used in monitors is quit different from frontlight in kindle.
I can read with my kindle for hours.

No fair.

You are basing your response on information you failed to provide in your original post.

My crystal ball has been off-line for a long time, I can not channel into your mind, I can only respond to what you write.

= = = =

You post that you have read this entire thread, but do not mention if you have read any of the references.
Things like the directions:
https://github.com/hwhw/kindlevncviewer

A copy of which is hidden in the release zip archive, using the filename: "README".

With all the respect, but I think you need no crystal ball to know that kindle is much easier on eyes. In fact, that is one of the main reasons it was manufactured at the beginning. And anyone can guess that the reason I want to use my kindle as a monitor is that I have already used my kindle and it's been OK.

I have already read the README file. But I failed to see any clear instruction at least for windows users. It seems this is for Linux/GNU.

However, some windows user claimed that they applied the trick and I wonder how.

See the thread title:
Kindle VNC viewer
This is the viewer, it installs on the Kindle, and yes, the Kindle is running gnu/Linux.

The Windows (or other machine you want to watch) must have a VNC server installed.
The directions to install that are included with whatever VNC server you choose to install.

VNC (Virtual Network Computing) is a 'standard' and has been around since the late 20th. century.
Google or your favorite web search engine can tell you more than you probably want to know about it (and answer your questions on how to get a VNC server running on your Window machine).

Thanks. I installed VNC server from realvnc.com. But how should I connect to the server from kindle? I have installed other apps like Koreader. They have a extension in KUAL so you can run them. But in this case, there is no KUAL extention. It is said to just copy the kvncviewer folder into the root. Should I install some other app?

There is a README in the archive.
Read it.
Then:
1) extract the archive on your kindle
2) install KTerm
3) open it from KUAL
4) cd <folder_where_you_extracted_the_archive>
5) ./luajit vncviewer.lua <ip_of_your_vnc_server>:<port_of_your_server>
