Topic: BUGmodules / VonHippel and Keyboard


I needs some more help.  I could get the keyboard to work, but only on slot 3.  I would like to get it working on slot 0 if possible, because I plan on using the multi-function buttons along with the screen.  To get the Xserver to accept keyboard input I edited the virtual terminal arguments for the Xserver and I had to comment out one instance from starting.  Here are the last few lines of my Xserver config when it works on slot 3

#TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/bmi_lcd_ts4 #exec xinit /etc/X11/Xsession -- $XSERVER $DISPLAY0 -fb /dev/fb1 $ARGS vt01 $*& TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/bmi_lcd_ts5 exec xinit /etc/X11/Xsession -- $XSERVER $DISPLAY1 -fb /dev/fb2 $ARGS vt02 $*

If I uncomment both of them, then I can not get keyboard input on any slot and switching them so the first Xserver gets started doesn’t work either.

I would appreciate any help you can give.


Thanks in advance.

Topic: Applications / Old school text entry

Ok, so I am having two issues on the physical bug:

1) The menu node is really sluggish.  When you scroll to the Configure Wifi node in Settings, it stays blank for a while and then shows up.  Same thing when you move right into the node.

2) When I execute the node, it flashes some stuff, throws up a letter, then replaces my new text with the original menu node text and continues scrolling it.  It also either doesn’t respond to the up/down presses, or it responds so slowly that I can’t see it happening.

Thanks for the input.

.setEnabled() should need to be called on IMenuProvider only.  The code should (could?) also work on the Virtual BUG but I did not try that out.  You do not have to implement the interface, only call setEnabled on your reference to the service.  I can provide an example app if you’d like…

IIRC, the setEnabled thing is for the physical BUG only.

Ok, kgilmer, I have a question.  For the API change to work, do I need to setEnabled(false) on both services?  Also, the menucontroller doesn’t return anything with getService.  I am guessing I need to implement the interface somehow, but what is the use?

I am asking because the virtual bug is giving me a concurrent error.  I will pastebin some stuff in the morning.
