Re: QtMoko's new keyboard

Its looking awesome Radek!  Just make sure that any key supported by the
old input methods is still supported...

 Hi,
 while there was discussion about hw keyboard, i was working on software
 onscreen keyboard with simple goal: implement the best onscreen keyboard in
 the world.

 I think i am now very close ;-) The key is to have as big buttons as
 possible.
 Here is picture and video of how it looks now:

 http://activationrecord.net/radekp/pub/keyboard.png
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyN7wS66y_I

 It still needs some more work, but it's currently very usable and i am
 really
 happy how it works. E.g. the video was taken with N900 in my left hand and
 still with the SMS layout i made no mistake.

 My plan for now is to finish it up and remove all those 5!! QtMoko input
 methods in favour of this one. I can make installable packages of the old
 methods if anyone is interested. This should be part of v45. For v46 i can
 try
 to implement customizable layouts and unicode characters.

Neotool is just a script.  It does not need installation.  You can run it

Hi Poul

I can assure you that QtMoko v35 works from a Micro SD Card, because that
is what I am currently using :-)

Which Bootloader are you using?  With the Qi Bootloader that I use, there
is no need to select boot from Micro SD Card on startup, this happens
automatically...
See this page:

 Hi list

 I do not know if this is the right list to ask.

 Anyway:

 Qt-moko-v35(of course unpacked) does not seem to work, when booting
 from my microsd card. I only grabs a white screen and then stops.

 SHR works fine when booting from microsd.

 Android(1.5 or 1.6 can't remember) works fine booting from boot.

 My procedure:

 Put in the microsd card and 1.  choose boot from microsd 2. then reboot.

 Thanks

I basically use Thunderbird on my PC to store my mail offline (via IMAP)

 Hi,
 i have uploaded new qtmoko v33 images to sourceforge now [1]. They are
 still
 called experimental, because a few things are still not perfect.

 For more information about qtmoko please see [2][3].

 Here is list of changes since v32:

 * new theme faenqo (cyberspirit)
 * qtmoko and it's applications are packaged as debian packages
 * compiled natively on ARM with debian toolchain
 * new web with applications and themes [4]
 * applications are now installed from web browser
 * new icon for installing qtmoko apps in Applications
 * you can easily install new themes in appearence settings
 * fixed usb mass storage script (thanks to Alfa21)
 * omhacks are installed as debian package from sid
 * qmplayer installs mencoder in debian
 * mencoder uses ac3 codec for audio
 * orange led brightness should be fixed (only in sources)
 * moved all apps from qtmoko-apps git to qtmoko git
 * updated docs for building and compiling

 The list is quite short on how much of work it was.

 Most of the effort was to package everything with debian package system.
 This
 should be done now except for kernel which is on the list for next release.

 For installing qtmoko with apt there is new line now in
 /etc/apt/sources.list:

 deb http://qtmoko.sourceforge.net/debian/ /

 Applications and themes are right now not in that repo. They can be
 installed
 from web browser from url below [4]. Applications are put in categories,
 they
 have tags and screenshots for easy searching and navigation. Please let me
 know if you have ideas or patches for improving this. The application web
 is
 generated from .xml files with xsltproc and bash scripts so it should be
 quite
 easy to change look or improve it.

 Btw .deb packages for most of the apps are still building right now so
 please
 be patient - i will upload them as soon as the build is finished.

 Applications in this version can be still installed with old qtopia package
 system, but i am going to disable this for next release if new packaging
 will
 be ok for you.

 My plan for next version is to fix regression if you find any, package
 properly
 also kernel and release it as stable.

 Plans for future is FSO framework in qtmoko.

 Don't forget to try new faenqo theme or use older themes (asthromod) which
 were only in git until now. They are really nice.

 Thanks for supporting qtmoko

Qi Bootloader compatible SD Card Partition Sizes

2010-12-06 Thread Nashvin Gangaram
Hi everyone

I was just wondering about appropriate SD Card Partition sizes for
Distributions that Qi boots.

According to:
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Qi#Advantages_of_Qi
SD and SDHC cards supported properly with partitions of any size as in
u-boot

However,  I have noticed that when I increased the sizes of my 3 Bootable
Partitions on my 16GB SD Card from 512MB each to 2GB each, I can only only
boot from the first 2 partitions (not the third one).

 You can try Rescan documents from Documents screen (the bottom right icon

 For run you must:

 - Untar mokotrack.tar
 - Edit the file conf and set the right APN, username and password by
 default
 is an italian provider

 There is not a graphical interface so to start you must open the terminal
 go
 to mokotrack directory and type ./track
 If everything works fine just launched the application will be assigned an
 ID and a password that is used to control the moko from web.
 To see the location you have to connect to this address:

 http://www.monkeyslair.net/MokoTrack.html MokoTrack web page

 So you can display the track or position with the ID that was assigned.
 To send commands to the moko click on info from the web page.You will
 have
 the current state of the moko and you can send commands (increase the
 frequency of coordinates, set the minimum distance for considering two
 different positions, exit by the app, turn off your cell, etc.).Of course
 to
 give the commands you must enter the assigned password.The application at
 startup sets up a firewall to minimize the flow of Internet data.Closes ppp
 port except the one using the application.The GPRS connection is opened
 each
 time and closed immediately after sending the coordinates.That way you
 minimize the exchange of bytes(see this discussion:

 In the terminal will be displayed the current operations and after sent the
 coordinate will be show the number of bytes sent and received in the
 session.The application is tested on SHR. It used D-bus

 is due to changes in youtube videos format, because it worked with apt-get
 installed mplayer before. But you can download the video and encode it to
 mp4
 in qmplayer right on the device.

 QtMoko should now save AGPS data before GPS is switched off (e.g. after you
 end
 NeronGPS). After GPS is switched on, it will supply those stored data and
 you
 will get fast fix. AGPS data is stored in /var/cache/agpsdata.

 Bluetooth headsets can be now used for both audio and GSM calls. GSM calls
 needed fix because of kernel bug. The fix is userspace program
 gta02-gsm-bt-fix
 by Gabrys and is started/stoped when handsfree connects/disconnects. There
 is
 problem that you must have incomming call first. If you make outgoing call
 first, you will have no audio. This should be fixed in newer kernels but we
 dont
 know fix for 2.6.29 kernel used in this release.

 A2DP (bluetooth audio) support works too but with some glitches. You need
 headset with A2DP support. After pairing press Supported services from
 bluetooth device context menu. New button Connect audio (A2DP) should
 then
 appear. Sometimes it fails to connect. For me it help putting headset in
 pairing mode, restart phone and then the button works. If you make the
 bluetooth audio device default it will work in all alsa programs, but
 expect
 problems e.g. with GSM calls. If you dont make it default GSM will be ok.
 However only QMplayer can detect it and use it now.

 Other changes should not need more explanation, but if you would like to
 know
 some details i will be happy to answer questions.

 Thanks for everybody who helped with this release. I hope you'll like the
 changes and new features.

 Cheers

 Radek

QtMoko Virtual Memory

2010-09-01 Thread Nashvin Gangaram
Hi

I was just experimenting the other day, trying to configure my Neo
Freerunner with QtMoko v24 to use Virtual Memory.  I created a swap
partition on my MicroSDHC Card, using GParted on PC.  I notice than on
startup, there is something like a Activating Swap Configuration... failed
message.  So, I just had a couple of questions:

   - Is it possible for QtMoko to use a swap partition on the SD Card?
   - How can this be done?
   - Does swap cause a significant performance increase with QtMoko?


Kind Regards,
Nashvin

Re: Leaving the Openmoko community, new wiki-admin needed

 Dear Openmoko community!

 I have previously worked as the administrator of the Openmoko Wiki for the
 last
 year. Unfortunately I have to announce that I will stop my involvement in
 the
 Openmoko community and so a new admin is needed. The reason for leaving is
 quite simple: I broke my FreeRunner last weekend at a party. Although I
 enjoyed my time with it I won't get another one. (Instead I'm getting an
 N900
 and hoping for MeeGo or Debian + FSO to provide a free OS for this device
 soon)

 As I am leaving a new admin is needed in the wiki. The main task for such
 an
 admin would be deleting pages which are either outdated or spam. More
 information on the process of deleting pages can be found here:[1]. If you
 are
 willing to assist the community by taking over this task please contact a
 wiki
 sysop and request more rights on the wiki so you can delete pages. I think
 Joachim Steiger (Roh) is the one to contact for this purpose.

 I will continue the task of deleting unwanted pages until someone else will
 get
 admin rights - but not longer than one month.

 I wish you all the best for the future. It has been great to be a part of
 this
 project!

 OT: As my involvement in the Openmoko project is over I'm searching for new
 challenges. I'm planning to take a break for several month now, but
 afterwards
 I might consider writing some documentation again for some project related
 to
 N900. So if you're working on a related project and need assisance with
 documentation just contact me and maybe I'll join.

Hi Jason

There is a list of Distributors here:

There only seem to be 2 in North America (1 out of stock), but perhaps one
of the other distributors sells GSM 850 handsets as well...

 Hi,

 I live in New York City and have been aware of Open Moko for a couple
 years. I had seen the possibility of purchasing a handset in the
 United States about a year ago but now that is not an option. Can
 anyone tell me information about the future of this situation...will
 there be handsets available in the U.S. any time soon?

 Thank you for your time.

Re: qtmoko - Please Wait...

2010-07-12 Thread Nashvin Gangaram
Hi Fernando

I've noticed the same issue as well, once when my battery was very low, and
once when it was fine.

A few device restarts by holding the Power button, and selecting Restart
Device eventually worked for me...

 Hi,
 I just upgraded to v24 and I keep having the same problem as before.

 After boot, I don't get the request for the pin code. The screen
 displays a No network message and no response to screen touches. I
 press the power button to get the shutdown menu. I cancel it and then
 the pin code request screen appears. However, I am not able to type
 anything and all I see is a Please Wait... message.

 If I boot the FR with usb cable connected, I get the chance to enter the
 pin code.

 Can I do something to fix this issue?

Re: [qtmoko] v24 importing contacts

2010-06-30 Thread Nashvin Gangaram
Hi Rafa

I believe that it is intentional for contacts not to be shown in SHR,
because of an internal design change...

 Fun. I tested qtmokov24 and it also, like Nashvin, shows all the SIM
 contacts. But it also always shows battery status like if it is charging,
 when no.

 And more, I installed latest SHR unstable and it does not show the
 contacts. I like both anyway ;-)

Freerunner Remote Desktop?

2010-05-25 Thread Nashvin Gangaram
Hi everyone

Does anyone know of any way to Remote Desktop to the Freerunner (to see
the Freerunner display on PC, via USB).  Preferably for SHR on Freerunner
and Linux Mint or Ubuntu on PC...

I've looked at:
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/USB_Networking#GUI_on_desktop_through_SSH
, but this seems to only allow specific applications to be displayed on PC.

Thanks :-)

Neo Freerunner Display Broken (Updated)

2010-05-09 Thread Nashvin Gangaram
Hi everyone

My Neo Freerunner display seems to be broken.  There are just bright lines
flashing on the screen (Some days some lines changes colour).  This issue is
always present.  However, the touchscreen seems to be working (The phone
responds to touches).  I can still ssh to the phone from my PC. The
filesystem is okay (all my files are still there), and the phone is working
otherwise.  I just can't see anything on the screen, except for some bright
flashing lines...

I don't think it is a software problem, because the issue is present even
when booting from NOR flash (holding AUX button + POWER)

I don't think it is a power-related problem, because I have tried using the
battery, as well as a PC USB port.

I have opened the phone, and the cable between display and board seems fine,
and all the connectors are sitting firmly.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Any advice on what to do?

Thank You
