Hi
Could you please tell us how to install it on Hackable ? And how to use it
as the default keyboard pressing Aux ?  In your first mail, you described a
opkg installation.

Thanks
Kimaidou

Not sure what Illume is.
But by you're question I'm assuming it starts the keyboard when you click on
a text field.
I'll have to look into it.
In the Hackable1 OS the keyboard is started by an AUX button Press.
And, I like this.  I hate when the Keyboard pops up when I don't want it
too.
But if there is an interest in this I look into it more.
I know my keypad needs some work,
But, I think the idea is a good one and the only way I can think of using
the whole screen
effectively.  I've bee using it in Hackable1 for awhile now (I'm duel
booting Hackable1 and om2008.9) and find it useful when I'm with out a
stylus.
And I set my hackable1 install to start ko-aux on start up.
The many reason I made the changes to get it to work in om2008.9 was because
I got a few emails with people interested in trying it out.
I do have a few projects going on so it may take me a little time to get
around to improving it.
But, I think it is fairly usable at this point.

Finger Friendly on screen keyboard

2009-01-25 Thread kris Occhipinti
A while back I made a finger friendly keyboard for the Freerunner,
I tried to make it as finger friendly as possible and use as much screen
space for buttons.

but since I was using xte to send the keys to applications it didn't work
under the
Openmoko OS (I was using Debian and Hackable1)

But, I found a python script called pykey that uses python-xlib to send
keys.

to install it first intsall python-xlib:
opkg install
http://filmsbykris.com/freerunner-debian/ko-user/python-xlib_0.14-ml0_armv4t.ipk

then download and un-tar this to your root directory
http://filmsbykris.com/freerunner-debian/ko-user/ko-keypad.tar.gz

This should put an icon on your desktop, which is not the best way to run
it,
There is a script in the tar file call ko-aux
if you run ko-aux it will start the keyboard up when you press the AUX
button on your phone.

It's hard to describe my keyboard but I'll give it a try

The keyboard is a 12 button keypad.
Each character takes 2 keypresses.
instead of the normal keypad like on your cellphone where you have to press
each key 3 or 4 time
to type one letter and then you end up passing the letter you want and have
to hit the key 3 or 4 more times
and you have to wait if 2 letter you want are on the same button.
This keypad will change all 12 keys to the characters on the button you
choose.
there is a Space button on each key
and if you hit the wrong key there is a blank button next to the space key
to back out.
keys are sent to a temp line before you add them to the final line (but any
thing in the temp line when sending keys will be add)

---todo list---
1) backspace button
2) create list for drop combo box of last 25 or 50 things typed
3) make the sending of keys a little more efficient

I would really love some feed back
It's still a little ruff around the edges

Does Illume recognize it? Judging by the way to start it, I would guess
not... :\
