QtMoko: Fast Imput Method as default keyboard?

2010-11-22 Thread Klaus Fuerth
Hi,

is it possible to install a faster input method (e.i. qwo etc.) as 
standard keyboard in QtMoko? Are there instructions how to do it around?

Thank you!
Klaus

GTA04 : which new life for GTA02 motheboards ?

2010-11-22 Thread Thomas HOCEDEZ
Hi,

The idea to upgrade Gta02 with a GTA04 motherboard is excellent*, my 
question (kind of a poll), is what will we do with our old motherboards 
?. As it is a little terminal, it can be used for a lot of 
stuff/projects, and I'd like to know if you have ideas ?

Thanks

Asthro / Openmoko-fr.org


*except for the one who had not this phone.

You could make a little and low-power server wtih it, or a gps antenna for
the netbook/notebook, or, also, you could make a combo with arduino using
her antennas and accelerometers for some projects...

I thought GTA04 use the old GPS... isnt it ?

The idea of the server is nice, (mine is a netbook motherboard nailed on 
the wall!), but i have to add a ethernet dongle...Ho , I can make a 
fully wireless server (no network wire, no power wire !) ;-)

As far as i know it's not possible, but i agree it would be very useful.

i don't know about GTA04 GPS system, i'm not well informed about it.

(mine is a netbook motherboard nailed on
the wall!)
epic win :P

however, ethernet over usb is not a great idea: if you don't find an adapter
with external power, your battery will hardly resist for more than an hour
xD on the other hand, if you use wireless you can plug the AC adapter on the
usb port.

It resuses the GPS antenna module. But you can still connect an
external GPS antenna (@ca. 5 EUR - must have MMCX cable and 3V/15mA).

The bare board has:
* CPU, RAM, Flash, SD card
* GPS
* USB
* WLAN, Bluetooth
* headset jack
* accelerometer

Most likely you will reuse the display...

GSM/GPRS should simply stay disabled since you don't have an antenna
connection. But you could even add some through the antenna
connector/switch.

The GTA02 module runs without battery if powered through USB.
Running it with a battery is a little complex since the batters spring
contacts push away the battery which is only hold by the plastic parts.

 The idea of the server is nice, (mine is a netbook motherboard nailed on 
 the wall!), but i have to add a ethernet dongle...Ho , I can make a 
 fully wireless server (no network wire, no power wire !) ;-)

Some more that come immeditately to my mind:
* GSM network monitor
* WLAN based server (harddisk on Y-cable on USB port)
* GPS tracker that can be read through WLAN
* wireless bluetooth headset adapter
* WLAN/VOIP headset adapter
* shaking gesture based wireless keyboard/mouse

Hope this helps to find even more ideas!

[QtMoko] Using dutch as input language for predictive keyboard

2010-11-22 Thread Tomas Nackaerts
Hi,

I recently configured qtmoko to use the predictive keyboard (smartkeyboard) as 
standard keyboard. I also enabled prediction. It works very nice and fast for 
typing. If you use English that is. So I wonder if anyone knows how to change 
the imput language to dutch? I have a Dutch word list i used once on SHR. I 
took a quick look at the source to get some clue where to put this file. That 
way i found out the input language can be changed at the language app found 
in the settings menu. But i don't know how to add a new language to this list. 

kind regards,

toams

Hi


 So now that you had time to play with it, I'd like to know if it cas easily
 replace an N900 ?



Firstly I don't own an N900.

 In particular:
 - is there a merged addressbook (with phone + gtalk + facebook + skype +
 etc.) ?


yep  webos merge all account setted for :
Contacts (tried with gmail adresse)
Calendar (tried with gmail adresse)
Todo list (if there are other providers for this knid of service...? don't
know)
Note  ( )
Phone (? did not tried)
Messaging (it merges sms/mms/gtalk and other IM)

 - what's the IM/phone backend ?


don't know. or don't understand the question so here is a list of proposed
type of account to set:
AIM
mail account
facebook
google
linkedin
microsoft exchange
photobucket
yahoo!
youtube
search for other (app catalog)


  - how many good Free apps are there in the app store ?


not that much.. It is not open source mentality here. it is busness as
android and appstore. so if you do like me (ie restricting to free/floss)
then
there is not lot of apps.
I will see how to build existing floss app for it.

 - and .. is there a shell (i.e. how open is it) ?


You can enable a dev mod that permit to novacom( a bit like an ssh
connection but by usb and without encryption and network interface) which
you can use to
install openssh or dropbears and then enable usbnet mode (like with the
Freerunner)
and install preware( a communotary app catalog ) in which you can find( and
install ) terminal emulators( don't know if it is the good term) but
those I have tried did not work here with the pre 2 . I think they need to
be updated.


 Thanks,


my pleasure.

2010-11-22 Thread Sylvain Paré
To FSO guys on the pre,
I will try to install the demo image in the next few days.
But I have one question first :
in the step 2. when do we restore back /sbin/init.old ?
Plus, I think this page (installing fso on the pre) really needs a lite
paragraph about howto revert the webos boot. because right now I am not sure
of what to do.
morphis there is no fso2-demo-image-palmpre.ext3 in your repo as said in the
howto.
Thnaks

Sylvain.
ps: I have my fix internet connection back ( a bit poor but...) so I am on
irc if needed.
