Wow that's awesome, thanks!
The kernel version issue seems to be solved with that.

Next step is the support for the Kobo device as expected:

# sh /opt/bin/remux.sh

COULDNT OPEN machine id FILE 2
*** UNRECOGNIZED KOBO DEVICE, EXITING ***
SET 'RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1' TO RUN ON UNSUPPORTED KOBOS


I guess RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 needs to be configured when building the binary?

OK, let's try running the command like this(RMKIT_KOBO_ANY is a runtime variable):

# RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh

I attached another version to try, where the default touch is like the Clara.
(As in Post #1 - not the default source code.)

i.e.:

$ nano -l src/rmkit/util/machine_id.cpy
Code:
68         switch KOBO_CUR_VERSION:
69 //          case util::KOBO_DEVICE_ID_E::DEVICE_KOBO_CLARA_HD:
70 //            debug "RUNNING ON CLARA HD"
71 //            break
$ nano -l src/rmkit/input/events.cpy
Code:
179       version := util::get_kobo_version()
180       rotation := util::rotation::get()
181       rotation %= 4
182       invert_x = true
183       swap_xy = false
184       switch version:
185         case util::KOBO_DEVICE_ID_E::DEVICE_KOBO_CLARA_HD:
186           rotation++
187           rotation %= 4
188           invert_x = true
189           swap_xy = true
190           break

Does it work? Well, somewhat. The swipe gestures are recognized now.
When swiping up or down on the side of the screen, I get:

Unfortunately, nothing visibly happens on the Kobo screen.
Input on Nickel doesn't work after swiping up/down, I assume because remux captures touch input until the command to return to Nickel is received.

The result is the same for both the remux for older kernel that you posted, and the remux_clara version from your previous comment.

I noticed in the output READING CONFIG FROM /home/root/.config/remux/remux.conf. The folder /home/root/.config/remux/ exists, but the file remux.conf does not exist. Should it exist? If so, what should be in there?

***UPDATE***
MISSION ABORT
There sre no "Mark6" devices (which the Aura One is) listed as supported by rmkit.
(Libra H2O and Clara HD are "Mark7", implying a different set of hardware control commands.)
We gave it a shot, but I've gotta bow out here.
Maybe Raisjn will add suport if he knows you're interested?

***

That looks fine.
I get the same messages:
READING CONFIG FROM /home/root/.config/remux/remux.conf
No such file or directory

But then I would still see a menu in a rectangular box after the swipe:

Code:
Nickel                    66MB   
animation_demo                   
dumbskull                              
input_demo                            
mines                                      
remux                                      
rpncalc                                    
wordlet                                    
                               NEXT
Maybe check your install directories?

/opt is a symbolic link to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit and should have same contents.

# ls /opt
bin/
enable_remux

# ls /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit
bin/
enable_remux

# ls /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/
apps/
remux.sh

# ls /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps
animation_demo
dumbskull
input_demo
mines
remux
rpncalc
wordlet



Maybe try copying the input_demo I uploaded to Post # 1 to the /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ folder?
input_demo

Or try running the individual app directly from a second SSH screen:
# /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/input_demo
(while remux is still running in the first screen.)



***




I uploaded a new version of remux that defaults to allowing unrecognized devices to run (so you no longer need to specify RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 on the command line.

Conversely, setting RMKIT_KOBO_RESTRICT=1 allows only recognized devices to run.


Default touch settings are now:
invert_y = false
invert_x = false
swap_xy = false
//rotation %= 4

These can be overridden by setting any of:
INV_Y=1
INV_X=1
SWP_XY=1
ROT_4=1

So, the Clara HD for example, could be run with:
# INV_X=1 ROT_4=1 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh


$ nano -l src/rmkit/util/machine_id.cpy
Code:
68         switch KOBO_CUR_VERSION:
69 //          case util::KOBO_DEVICE_ID_E::DEVICE_KOBO_CLARA_HD:
70 //            debug "RUNNING ON CLARA HD"
71 //            break
72           case util::KOBO_DEVICE_ID_E::DEVICE_KOBO_LIBRA_H2O:
73             debug "RUNNING ON LIBRA H2O"
74             break
...
79             if getenv("RMKIT_KOBO_RESTRICT") != NULL:
80               debug "*** UNRECOGNIZED KOBO DEVICE, EXITING ***"
81               debug "SETTING 'RMKIT_KOBO_RESTRICT=1' DISALLOWS RUNNNING ON UNSUPPORTED KOBOS"
82               exit(1)
83               break
84
85             debug "*** UNRECOGNIZED KOBO DEVICE, TOUCH MAY NOT WORK ***"
86             break
$ nano -l src/rmkit/input/events.cpy
Code:
 
179       version := util::get_kobo_version()
180       rotation := util::rotation::get()
181       invert_y = false
182       invert_x = false
183       swap_xy = false
184       if getenv("INV_Y") != NULL:
185         invert_y = true
186       if getenv("INV_X") != NULL:
187         invert_x = true
188       if getenv("SWP_XY") != NULL:
189         swap_xy = true
190       if getenv("ROT_4") != NULL:

hi Clouds and elinkser, thanks for the support so far! (i will have to look at integrating your patches in). around new year's, i added support for fbink (thanks NiLuJe!) as the framebuffer backend to rmkit, so it should now be able to draw to more devices. the major piece i was unsure of was the input handling, but it looks like you have that covered. if fbink supports your device, i think we will be able to get rmkit to work (eventually)

you can find some fbink binaries here: https://raisjn.net/fbink/ - they are built out of the `fbink` branch on rmkit (see https://github.com/rmkit-dev/rmkit/tree/fbink). the build instructions are something like this:

Code:
$ git checkout fbink
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update
$ pushd vendor/fbink
$ CROSS_TC=arm-linux-gnueabihf BITMAP=1 make staticlib
$ popd
$ TARGET=kobo FBINK=1 CROSS_TC=arm-linux-gnueabihf make
feel free to email me / ping me if i don't respond in a few days, i sometimes forget and don't check the forums for a while.

Thanks for your support elinkser and raisjn!

For completeness sake I still tried running the individual apps from cli while remux was running. They abort because "FATAL: kernel too old".
I'm not too knowledgeable on this topic but I guess this means that the individual apps need to be built for the old KA1 kernel just like remux?

I'd be happy to try whether or not fbink can work on KA1.
Unfortunately I don't know much about building binaries. Following steps is all can do.
Earlier I tried creating a build environment for Kobo by following a guide, but got stuck on a part where the guide said something that sounded to me like 'now just build a rocket and launch it and you'll get to Mars' :-D

@Clouds
Hang in there. A few more details to iron out!

@raisjn
That is great news!

I did encounter a problem trying to swipe to get the initial menu.

Trying the remux binary from https://raisjn.net/fbink/, and running from SSH on my kobo, I got the error:

# sh /opt/bin/remux.sh
/opt/bin/apps/remux: /lib/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.27' not found (required by /opt/bin/apps/remux)

So I tried your build directions (with a few mods):

Build toolchain as in fbpad:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...16&postcount=4

$ source ~/koxtoolchain/refs/x-compile.sh kobo env bare

$ git clone https://github.com/rmkit-dev/rmkit.git

$ cd rmkit

$ git checkout fbink

$ git submodule init

$ git submodule update

$ pushd src/vendor/FBInk/

$ git submodule init

$ git submodule update

$ CROSS_TC=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf BITMAP=1 make staticlib

$ popd

$ cp src/vendor/FBInk/fbink.h src/vendor/

$ KOBO=1 FBINK=1 CROSS_TC=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf make


So then, copying src/build/remux to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ I get:

And there is no response to swiping.

However...

The input_demo app works!

(Except that Nickel is still responding to touch events.)

So, main problem is that swiping along edge no longer brings up menu.
Running app individually stll sends touches to Nickel.

Oh no! maybe try using `TARGET=kobo` in the build line. It looks like it built the rM app (i see mention of xochitl), so I think I gave the wrong build command.

can you try `TARGET=kobo FBINK=1 CROSS_TC=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf make`? or use whatever command you did before for building, but add in FBINK=1.

@Clouds, can you try again with:

# RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh

@raisjn, I built this time like before with:

$ nano -l src/common.make

 4 CXX_BIN?=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-g++

 6 STRIP_BIN?=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-strip
 7 CPP_FLAGS=-pthread -lpthread -fdata-sections -ffunction-sections -Wno-narrowing -Wl,--gc-sections
$ nano -l src/rmkit/input/events.cpy
Code:
187       rotation := util::rotation::get()
188       invert_y = false
189       invert_x = false
190       swap_xy = false
191       if getenv("INV_Y") != NULL:
192         invert_y = true
193       if getenv("INV_X") != NULL:
194         invert_x = true
195       if getenv("SWP_XY") != NULL:
196         swap_xy = true
197       if getenv("ROT_4") != NULL:
198         rotation %= 4
199       switch version:
$ ARCH=kobo FBINK=1 make

Now, copying src/build/remux to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ I get:

Now I can swipe to launch menu!

Now let's see if @Clouds can run input_demo...

Unfortunately needed to add -Wno-narrowing to CPP_FLAGS to avoid errors:

FYI just for fun I just installed KoboStuff and tried FBink for a bit.
FBInk works fine on KA1!

Well at least it reacts to your swipe - that is a good sign.
Weird that it doesn't see nickel now:

As for the missing libs, yes, you will need binaries compiled for your old kernel and GLIBC version (like your remux) like I have uploaded in Post #1, 10, and 28.

Raisjn can tell me how to add debug lines to your remux, if necessary.

i've updated rmkit to send more framebuffer calls through fbink APIs, things like retrieving the display size and depth. will also see if i can get my hands on the KA1 or something similar for testing

Did the following edits:

$ nano -l src/common.make

$ nano -l src/rmkit/util/machine_id.cpy

71 //            break
$ nano -l src/rmkit/input/events.cpy

197       if getenv("ROT_4") != NULL:
198         rotation %= 4

$ ARCH=kobo TARGET=kobo FBINK=1 CROSS_TC=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf make

$ arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-strip src/build/remux

Copied src/build/remux to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ and ran from SSH:

# RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 INV_X=1 ROT_4=1 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh

And swiping up brings up the menu.

Ok I wasn't too sharp on my previous comment...

Yeah it does recognize Nickel, but only when running remux.sh the first time. After killing it and starting it again Nickel isn't active anymore. Accidentally posted the output of a second try.

Ah yes, of course. To make sure my rmkit install was done properly I had removed all of it and reinstalled it. And then I only put in your modified remux but left the original input_demo.

Anyway, with remux-0131 and input_demo-0131, I get the following results:

TLDR: input_demo works, swiping up/down in input_demo stops it, swiping up/down in Nickel to launch the menu doesn't do anything on screen yet.

At the same time on the second screen with input_demo running:

I tried running remux with different commands, i.e.
# RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh
# RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 INV_X=1 ROT_4=1 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh
# RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 INV_X=1 INV_Y=1 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh
# RMKIT_KOBO_ANY=1 INV_X=1 INV_Y=1 ROT_4=1 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh

all with the same results: swiping doesn't launch anything.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to try simple and drawing_demo from yesterday's post as well. I did anyway with different options (e.g. different combination of INV_X=1, INV_Y=1, ROT_4=1). In none of the tests anything visible happens on screen. Swiping up/down on the side of the screen does stop the application:
