sorry about the settings problem. we fixed multiple problems yesterday (see https://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/2148). there was a really strange line in local.conf saying EXTENDPE = "" , which will cause a lot of problems. I have no idea who put that in... there used to be a wrench and qwerty button enabled theme, and now raster's illume default theme (illume-theme-illume, illume-config-illume) provides the same functionalities with a very different look. OM's theme will remain as it is like our designer wants it to be. you are free to switch between these two though, by setting it inside /etc/enlightenment/default_profile. - John > - Even after disabling suspend I am having problems.
