overlay

@NiLuJe, I am just playing with the new -o switch, is this the expected behaviour?


Code:
[root@kindle us]# fbink -c -B gray2 .  #only to create a background
[FBInk] Variable fb info: 600x800, 4bpp @ rotation: 0 (Upright, 0°)
[FBInk] Fontsize set to 16x16 (IBM base glyph size: 8x8)
[FBInk] Line length: 37 cols, Page size: 50 rows
[FBInk] Fixed fb info: ID is "eink_fb", length of fb mem: 483328 bytes & line length: 300 bytes
[FBInk] Enabled Legacy einkfb Kindle quirks
[FBInk] Kernel's HZ value appears to be 100
[FBInk] Pen colors set to #000000 -> #FFFFFF for the foreground and #222222 -> #DDDDDD for the background
Printing string '.' @ column 0 + 0px, row 0 + 0px (overlay: false, inverted: false, flashing: false, centered: false, left padded: false, clear screen: true, font: 0, font scaling: x0)
[root@kindle us]# fbink  -mM -S 20 -o O
[FBInk] Variable fb info: 600x800, 4bpp @ rotation: 0 (Upright, 0°)
[FBInk] Fontsize set to 160x160 (IBM base glyph size: 8x8)
[FBInk] Line length: 3 cols, Page size: 5 rows
[FBInk] Fixed fb info: ID is "eink_fb", length of fb mem: 483328 bytes & line length: 300 bytes

[FBInk] Kernel's HZ value appears to be 100
[FBInk] Pen colors set to #000000 -> #FFFFFF for the foreground and #FFFFFF -> #000000 for the background
Printing string 'O' @ column 0 + 0px, row 0 + 0px (overlay: true, inverted: false, flashing: false, centered: true, left padded: false, clear screen: false, font: 0, font scaling: x20)
I was expecting the "O" to be rendered in a true shade of gray, it seems to also have some vertical line dithering:

I was hoping the padding would stay in the background color:

[EDIT] Also, would be nice to be able to just clear the screen fbink -c or create a background fbink -c -B gray2 and not have to specify a string.

I may have fucked it up on 4bpp devices ^^.

EDIT: Yep, that's a 4bpp-specific issue. I'll see what I can do .

EDIT²: It's still honoring fg/bg pen color for anything not glyphs, that's what the not terribly clear mention in the help message meant. i.e., fbink -F block -o -S 4 ABCDEFG -B gray2 does what you wanted .

EDIT³: That sounds sensible, but it's a tiny bit annoying to actually make happen ;p. (And it'd have to be a different flag than -c). (FWIW, for a blank line/page, ' ' (i.e., a single space) works, while '' will get you shouted at )

Thanks, not really a pressing issue.

OK Thanks for the way out. But I don't understand how the additional -B gray2 makes it "not glyph"

Bah, just forget it. 'space' is just fine

@PoP: The extra padding is just that, extra padding, it's another bit of code than the font rendering one, so it's simply using the set fg/bg pen colors (i.e., it's not honoring is_overlay at all).

That's mostly a byproduct of the fact that I need is_overlay enabled during font rendering for progress bar, but not during the rendering of the progress bar themselves (which happens to be using the same rectangle filling function as the padding ).

@j.p.s: The K4 is the first 8bpp devices, everything since also is.

Meaning the only 4bpp devices are the K2, K3, DX & DXG.

The K1 might have been using something even nastier, but I've never had one .

@PoP: Yeah, now that I have a K3 plugged in, indeed, can't slice on the K3 busybox version, but I seem to remember it working on newer models.

Which is likely, given that it's not a bb limitation, as it works in my own bb build (which you could always resort to, I guess ;p. Which would logically lead to the next step of simply using ZSH ;p).

Code:
[root@kindle root]# BLAH="ABCD"
[root@kindle root]# echo ${BLAH:1:1}
-sh: syntax error: Bad substitution
[root@kindle root]# /mnt/us/usbnet/bin/busybox ash
[root@kindle root]# BLAH="ABCD"
[root@kindle root]# echo ${BLAH:1:1}

Sure, since I already rely on usbnet for ssh, might as well rely on usbnet's bb:

Code:
[root@kindle root]# PATH=/mnt/us/usbnet/bin:$PATH

[root@kindle root]# busybox
BusyBox v1.29.2 (2018-08-22 03:16:32 CEST) multi-call binary.
BusyBox is copyrighted by many authors between 1998-2015.
Licensed under GPLv2. See source distribution for detailed
copyright notices.

Usage: busybox [function [arguments]...]
   or: busybox --list
   or: function [arguments]...

        BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix
        utilities into a single executable.  Most people will create a
        link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
        will act like whatever it was invoked as.

Currently defined functions:
        [, [[, ash, bash, bb, bbsh, bunzip2, cttyhack, ftpd, httpd, inetd,
        login, mkdir, sh, start-stop-daemon, telnetd
[root@kindle root]#
I had wrongly assumed that installing usbnet did superseeded the builtin bb.

I'll rewrite 'box' (...in time) with ${BLAH:1:1}. thanks.

[EDIT] Ahh, I see, alternately don't touch PATH, just invoke busybox ash ./box 0 0 4 string -c

@PoP: Hmm, on my end, USBNet's busybox isn't in my $PATH

Code:
┌─(ROOT@kindle:pts/0)───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────(~)─┐
└─(0.29:37%:15:27:100%:#)── which busybox                                                                                                                                                                                                                   ──(Sun, Sep 25)─┘
/bin/busybox
And that's indeed the default BB .

(Don't mind my poor K3 clock stuck on a random 2016 day )

(And, yeah, that's on purpose NOT to screw with the system's reliance on its own potentially-mystically-patched BB version ).

----

Thinking back about the overlay/background thing, you're right: with overlay enabled, it explicitly states "no bg pixels are drawn", and those padding rectangles are definitely background, so, yeah, they shouldn't be drawn at all . I'll fix that.

ACK.

While you are at it an other mode of overly I was thinking about could be to draw the foreground pixels in the pen color (instead of background inverse) and leave the background pixels unchanged. Something like writing with transparent text (no political intent, solely to illustrate the effect):

...Just an idea.

Yeah, just skip background without tweaking pen color, that should be easy .

Released v1.6.1 .

With the aforementioned fixes to overlay/progressbars on 4bpp Kindles, as well as the backgroundless mode that just came up .
