I managed to get the terminal to access the vncviewer program file on my pw3, but I received this response:

[root@kindle kvncviewer]# ./luajit vncviewer.lua ./luajit: ./ffi/framebuffer_linux.lua:176: unknown smem_len value for the Kindle mxc eink driver stack traceback: [C]: in function 'error' ./ffi/framebuffer_linux.lua:176: in function 'open' vncviewer.lua:4: in main chunk [C]: at 0x0000c368


Can somebody please help me understand where I may be going round and I do not have a programming background and cannot make sense of this response

extract this file to the ffi directory and overwrite the framebuffer_linux.lua. This should fix the problem.

Thanks for that, it seemed to help me get a few steps further. the display functioned for a split-second and gave this result:

I have finally got this thing working on the pw3, it is however displaying only in portrait mode and thus using only half of the paperwhite screen. I have changed it to landscape on the Kindle however it makes no difference. can anybody advise me how to get it to display in landscape mode so that I can utilise all of the Kindle screen.

furthermore how do I access the variable options such as refresh rate and screen speed?

Disable local key input to Kindle

First, thank you so much for the great work, hawhill! I have been the user of kvncviewer since k2 and k3 and I am still currently using them.

I have just registered to ask a question. When I press a key in k3, it sends to the vncserver as desired but at the same time to the local kindle causing it to open up a search bar with the pressed character and the kindle interface reappear. I searched this forum and checked if there is any option to disable the local key input to kindle but no luck. Could anybody let me know if this is possible. I saw discussions about SendKeyEvent but no one seems had this problem. This function doesn't seem to have an option:

handleInput(channel, itype, code, value)

Thanks in advance for any input.

so don't make us guess, what is the symbol near '=' ?
and is 'telnet 192.168.15.201' (which is the address of the PC's end of the cable suppose to be on the same command line as you show it? Why an opton escape (-) on password but not on telnet?)

Reads like either an altered file and/or PEBKAC - check your work.

Isn't that the same as a good WAFG?

It is what I meant by an 'altered file' above.

And since there was mention of a "brand new folder" that I originally missed: I'd take a look at the software used to unpack said folder, because we've had many wild and funny (not) adventures with some archiving tools messing with line endings on unpack...

Im pretty sure its reffering to the 'rotate=' option because thats the only one ive changed.

Its now changed its resp9onse to this:

Do a long list ('ls -l ./luajit') and copy&paste here into a pair of 'code' tags (use the 'advanced' editor).
