Re: [possibly any] Your storage is full

 Hello list.
 My friend's been having this problem for a long time(since I installed
 her SHR, before that it was FDOM). And I experience it myself.
 The message 'Your storage is full' is being displayed for me each time
 the distribution boots and nothing could be done with it. Cannot see
 _ANY_ sms in the messages app. There is _nothing_ displayed.
 My friend says she's been able to delete them by inserting the sim into
 her Motorola and deleting them by hand there.
 What's the problem here? What app works with the sim card? Does the gsm
 modem work with it so it is broken or is it just a modem?

I *think* I had the same problem some time ago with shr testing. I was able to
fix them by deleting all (!) messages on the SIM via SHR-Settings (the option
for that is under phone IIRC). Not a nice fix, but it works. If you want to
keep your messages, you could run the backup script somebody posted here some
time ago to copy your messages into a file in advance.

I can't give you a list, but I've been using SHR (first testing, now unstable)
from a 4 gig SD card (using qi as the bootloader) for quite some time now.
I also use gps a lot, and did not have any problems with that.
Before that, I used various incarnations of the 2008.X line in the same fashion,
also without problems getting a gps fix since the software fix was released.

 The thread has grown up with several branches, so would answer self

 But there seems to be one thing against putting OpenMoko on handlebars.
 The vibrations that come from a wheel could be(and it seems it will be)
 killing for the device to drive through the forest or say off-road. It
 seems to be much safer for a device to put it in jacket or coat.

At least for me, the vibrations from a rought bike ride didn't harm the
freerunner at all. Of course you should take care it can't fall down, but that's
generally a good idea. ;)
If you keep the freerunner in a pocket, the downside is that the quality of the
gps readings goes down drastically (depends on the type of pocket, i.e. the
thickness of the material between the freerunner and the outside world) if you
don't use an external antenna. Just my experience, though...
But with a good bike mount (I use the one Daniel Willmann sugessted earlier -
the foam padding probably helps against vibrations, too) your freerunner should
be safe. :)

 Today I installed FDOM 20081023.

 When I open ePDFViewer, it asks for a password, saying that the

 I cannot open any of my documents, because of this problem.
 this is a bug I have been meaning to report for a while now.
 How to fix this?
 The issue arises because I think the launching dialog launches it with 
 an %s argument or something which specifies the path of the file that 
 should be loaded. because it apparently can't deal with no being able to 
   find the file gracefully, it aassumes something is encrypted and asks 
 for a password.
 Launching from the terminal epdfviewer works fine...
 fixing this *should* (in theory) be trivial, however I don't know, 
 without looking exactly how to do this...

Editing /usr/share/FDSubmenu/viewers/epdfview.desktop and changing

epdfview %f



should do the trick. :)
On a completely unrelated note - someone should change the way FDSubmenu calls
applications, as the current implementation freezes fdsubmenu until the started
process terminates - I think using subprocess.Popen should work, but I haven't
really looked that closely at the source, yet.

Re: [OM2008] Documentation for .kbd-files?

2008-10-11 Thread Chaosspawn23
 AFAIK there's no docs about it, but it's quite easy... I suggest you
 starting editing the Default keyboard and as you can see there each key
 has a position (key x y) and the role of the key itself (normal, shift
 So for example a code like:
 key  5  0  10  10
   normal   q q
   shiftQ Q
   capslock 1 1
 will put a key in the position (5,0) and that key will show a q in
 normal mode, a Q in shift mode and a 1 in capslock mode. Then while both
 using the normal and shift mode the char written will be checked with
 the dictionary, in the capslock mode the char will be directly prompted
 in the text field.
 In fact you've to use something like this:
 key $x-pos $y-pos 10 10
 mode $char-to-be-shown-in-the-key $char-xcode-to-be-written
 mode $char-to-be-shown-in-the-key $char-to-be-checked-with-dict
 Btw I don't know what the 10 and 10 means (maybe the key size? But this
 seems strange since in the terminal keyboard they're set to 30 30) I've
 to ask this to Rasterman!
 I hope I've been enough clear... :P

Thank you very much - now I can start working on a qwertz-keyboard with umlauts!
(and by NOW, I mean some time this weekend ;) )

 I believe it is almost foolish not to have that keyboard button by default.
 This phone is still something primarily to be used by hardcore geeks, and
 please show me the linux geek who doesn't use the keyboard here or there with
 some application that doesn't hook into the automatically-show-keyboard magic?
 I wish for this kind of question there would be an easy-to-be-configured
 polling mechanism that could be put up at some website.  I think
 there are many of those issues where all kinds of people inside openmoko inc.
 could benefit from a very quick-to-read opinion of their user base without
 reading through tons of threads of discussions that get time-consuming and
 boring over time.
 Just my 2 cents,


Even if the core applications can (and should!) implement the
show-me-the-keyboard mechanism, I don't think it would be trivial
to implement it for other (ported) apps like, say, Battle for Wesnoth
or Numpty Physics (yes, I do realize those are all games ;) ).
Just my two cents, too :)

Try this:

In general, if I'm looking for a specific package, I use

opkg list | grep $EXPRESSION

in this case opkg list | grep libsdl helped me.

 I did some tests yesterday and here are my experiences with Freerunner's
 First I put the Freerunner on a window sill in a penthouse, no high-rise
 around. I got a fix after ~20 minutes. Disappointing.
 Later on I walked along in a big city between a lot of high-rises. After
 15 minutes, the neo found the first satellite, but nothing more, no fix,
 only a gps-time. After 30 minutes I activated the power management
 (first dim, than lock) so the neo could be sleeping again, I gave up.
 Very Disappointing.

Hmm, my results so far:
First run with external antenna on the roof: GPS time after about 15 Minutes,
TTFF 1599 seconds. Still, the position tangogps showed me was about 1 km off
from my real position, and kept changing (with 4 visible satellites).
Trying again now, after restarting agpsui, TTFF is only 55 secs, and now I see 6
satellites. Weird...
