*** zodman has joined #maemo01:43
frozeneskimopupnik, it's just that i don't have a 770... i'm trying to decide if i want to get one, and if a palm emulator runs well that just might help me decide :) brb01:45

pupnikfrozeneskimo: it only emulates up to palmos 4.5 i think. handwriting recognition is too slow, but you can use a keyboard with it01:57
pupnikand an onscreen keyboard... if you have any free software or use-cases that i should test on it, let me know01:57

revcan you flash an OS image on an N800 from an Intel OS X machine?08:15
revi ask because08:15
revthere's no intel binary08:15
revmind you, i've seen a fair bit of PPC bins work fine on intel os x machines08:15
revbut for something like this it makes me a little paranoid08:16
revalso, do you need a special N800 flasher? where to find one for OS X?08:16
*** micky_ has quit IRC08:21
*** henno has joined #maemo08:21
pupnikn800 -> flasher 3.0 iirc08:25
_Monkeyflasher is available from
revso no flasher for OS X then08:25
revthere's no way to flash an N800 with a file on an SD card?08:25
revat least the xp i've installed on another partition will be handy for something! :)08:26
pupniknot heard of one08:26
reva shame, maybe on the next IT08:28
revit's a handy thing, that's how i flash all sorts of things, from my OLPC to my gameboy flash cart's OS/ROM08:28
revdoesn't take any special OS etc08:28
*** ryanfaerman has joined #maemo08:36
*** ryanfaerman has quit IRC08:40
pupniki doubt you could flash to a mounted filesystem - with multiboot you can easily 'flash' images though08:42
revnot to a mounted filesystem08:42
pupnikyes, but having 2-3 filesystems to boot from makes that a lot easier08:43
revthe wayi t works on these other devices is there must be some other metabios sort of software that does nothing more than 1) reading fat32 rom SD and 2) copying from a .bin file into flash ROM08:43

LynoureIs there a button-only way in N800 to get to the Application menu?12:05
*** NetBlade has joined #maemo12:08
milhouseyou mean the navigation menu?12:11
milhouseapplication menu being the menu specific to each application, which can be accessed using the Menu button or tapping the stylus in the title bar area (unless I've gotten the names wrong)12:12
*** NetBlade has quit IRC12:12
LynoureI'm not sure what it is called. The menu where you can choose which application to open12:12
milhousethere's no specific button to access the navigation menu12:12
Jaffamilhouse: I'm about to rant a bit more at Texrat ;-)12:12
milhouseabout ipods?12:12
*** NetBlade has joined #maemo12:13
JaffaMostly about head-in-sandedness12:13
milhouseif so i'd say it's been done to death... there's two sides to it12:13
LynoureThat's a pity. Makes this device a paperweight if the touchscreen ever stops registering touches (N770 you can still use for non-writing things)12:13
Jaffamilhouse: true12:13
milhousei've said more than enough :)12:13
LynoureHmm, my RSS Reader no longer starts12:14
*** zodman has quit IRC12:15
keesjmilhouse: is your device screen not registering touches any more?12:15
milhouselynoure: probably a dodgey feed12:15
*** metrox has joined #maemo12:15
milhousekeesj: fine since i sent it in for repair12:15
roopeYou can rant to me, also. :)12:15
milhousethat was before 4.2007 came out and fixed it in software12:15
roopeGoes perhaps better into the right destination.12:15
Lynouremilhouse: I have not added any feeds, just removed one of them (CNN Sports)12:16
Jaffaroope: I'll send you a link since I'm hlf way through a replu12:16
keesjyes funny how they managed to "fix" it in software12:16
milhouseyeah, i can understand the argument where they needed people to send in devices in order to pin down the fault but there must have been a point where they had identified the fault and fixed it, at which point they could have announced it and told everyone to hold off sending in their devices.12:17
Lynouremilhouse: if it is a problem with the feeds, is there a workaround?12:18
milhousedo you have xterm access?12:18
lle2keesj: the hw is still faulty, more and better filtering on sw side allows to work around it12:18
milhouselynoure: my suggestion would be to zap your feed file12:19
LynoureAs far as I know, the touchscreen fault is in HW, still, though the fix in sw makes it better12:20
lle2keesj: previously sw simply cut off all samples that fell outside of certain limits, now those limits coul be relaxed because it does extra work to make sense of the samples12:20
milhouselle2/keesj: the fix for the display seems to have knackered the ability to enter shifted letters on the vkb by sliding the stylus upwards (bug 1685)12:21
_MonkeyBug 1685 might be found at
Lynouremilhouse: I'll try to find it...12:21
milhouseLynoure: the RSS Reader stores it's feeds in the file /home/user/.osso_rss_feed_reader/feedlist.opml12:22
Lynouremilhouse: thanks12:23
lle2milhouse: dunno, never even knew of such a feature, although it's possible that the extra filtering is making things slow enough that it no longer works exactly the same. although I'd suspect the real reason to be something else12:23
*** NetBlade_ has quit IRC12:24
milhousei hope it's something else - it's been suggested in the bug that it's the sensitivity change, or another bug, but without any input from Nokia/Maemo we're just pissing in the wind12:24
lle2well you just got input from nokia12:26
milhouseWoohoo! :)12:26
milhousehere or in the bug?12:26
lle2now that I read that it seems the whole feature is totally fucked12:26
milhouseah... the bug would be nice :)12:26
lle2no way12:27
Jaffaroope: random incoherent rant:
milhouseok, how about passing it on?12:27
roopeI don't stand behind texrat's rants, btw. :)12:28
roopeHe is not really associated with our workings.12:28
JaffaI know :)12:28
lle2milhouse: it could be that with a too-fast movement the letter is not getting enough events to detect a movement upwards, I think this is a bug in vkb12:28
roopeAlthough of course everyone can have their opinions, and that's cool.12:28
lle2milhouse: but to be honest I think the entire stylus driven keyboard should be killed12:29
milhouselle2: possibly, it would just be nice to know if it's a wontfix (which would be bad, as it was a useful feature but understandable if it means a working touchscreen) or just a freaking bug that can/should be fixed in time for the next release (since it's not aliased to an internal bug ref, I can only assume it's not been picked up by Nokia)12:29
milhouselle2: killing stylus keyboard... would need to see some alternatives before I can comment on that, are you suggesting something like the iPhone vkb?12:30
milhousesomething more finger friendly?12:30
lle2something more thumb friendly, like the thumb keyboard12:30
lle2but with visibility to what you're typing into12:30
roopeanyway, those touch screen filterings ultimately need to go. when moving forwards with more things like gestures etc., we can't have crap like that there.12:30
milhousejaffa/roope - i think texrat is trying to perform an impossible service :)12:30
roopethat breaks even the simplest gestures.12:30
lle2roope: tell that to the hw guys12:31
roopeto whom? ds?12:31
lle2I need at least 15 samples to make anything resembling sensible output12:31
lle2he's not a hw guy12:32
lle2hw guys do electronics and they live in funny place called oulu12:32
roopeAnd this is all their fault?12:32
milhousenot criticising you two guys, but having some progress on a bug as outlined above is surely the reason for filing the bug in the first place... having it ignored is kind of... frustrating. :)12:32
lle2by choosing the shitty ts film12:32
milhouseif someone posted "the vkb is going away in future" would be fine by me...12:33
roopewell, i don't have the expertise to comment to anyone on that particular issue. :)12:33
milhousethat's why i hope it could be "passed along"12:33
lle2but you're willing to remove the filtering? :)12:33
infobotmilhouse meant: that's why i hoped it could be "passed along"12:33
*** konttori has quit IRC12:34
lle2roope: you guys need to simply work with what we can provide, currently it means that the "sensitivity" of the ts is bad, you only get stuff about 100ms after the pen has touched the screen12:35
roopewell, the things you are providing suck. ;)12:36
lle2and roughly every 15ms after that.12:36
lle2either you can bitch about it or design a UI that works with it12:36
lle2for thumb usage it's more than good enough12:37
milhousejaffa - i hadn't planned on getting a Touch, but I might just have to in order to be able to comment on the browsing experience.12:38
*** metrox has quit IRC12:39
lle2the vkb probably screws up because it doesn't grab all stylus events for a time after initially getting a pen down12:39
milhousewhatever it is, it used to work fine in 3.200712:40
milhouseunless the stylus vkb is going away with the next firmware release, it would be really really really nice if someone from nokia could identify the cause :)12:41
milhousethe rollmops would be on me12:42
*** Ivan_Chelubeev has quit IRC12:46
milhouseinteresting bug 1998 that someone has just filed12:49
_MonkeyBug 1998 might be found at
milhousemaybe, just maybe, the device needs a super user mode?12:50
roopeWell, files starting with . aren't also shown, so.12:50
roopeit's called xterm.12:50
milhouseyes, i'm not sure if the bug filer realises that - which is why i think it's interesting. in some respects, what he wants to achieve is reasonable, but the file manager sanitises his view of the file system12:51
milhousecould the file manager operate in a less restrictive mode if the user has R&D rights? or would that be too much hassle (suspect I know the answer)12:51
roopeyes. :)12:51
milhouseand yes... i suppose xterm is the answer, or an alternative file manager12:52
roopeI can you can install a 3rd party file manager. (if one would exist)12:52
milhousei know midnight commander is out there - never tried it myself. i suppose a third party "power user" file manager would do the trick12:52
milhouseis the source code for the Nokia file manager available? the community could hack it and re-release12:53
milhousemind you, he's also talking about the file choose dialog which is probably a system component12:54
milhousemessed up my regex12:54
milhouseyeah, missed off the trailing / - you only get one shot at it12:55
infobotmilhouse meant: $&icles12:58
milhousehmmm... :)12:58
pupnikre getting rid of stylus kbd...  my thumbs arent transparent ;)12:59
milhousemaybe you need to have finger surgery like that bloke with his new iPhone (ok ok I know it was only a hoax...)13:00
Lynouremilhouse: no RSS feed reader starting even without a feedlist file13:02
pupnikaah  im using xvkbd right now...13:02
Lynoureit just shows it's starting for some time, then nothing happens13:02
milhouselynoure - odd...13:02
milhousethe only thing i can suggest you try is use the archive attached to bug 177013:03
_MonkeyBug 1770 might be found at
pupnikit is pretty fast now that i've adjusted to the smaller size of the keys -- less travel for the stylus.13:03
milhouserestore the archive - it's the entire osso_rss_feed_reader directory... as it stands it contains a feed - The Register - which will crash the RSS app when it is refreshed. delete The Register feed and you should be fine.13:04
milhouseunless it's something else crashing your rss app, in which case i'm all out of ideas13:05
milhousei filed that bug btw13:05
Lynourewould it be unsafe to just delete the whole osso_rss_reader configuration directory? Would it recreate it, like Linux programs usually do?13:07
*** frozeneskimo has quit IRC13:10
milhousei don't know, i'd suggest renaming it for now13:10

fish_hope that display is not working again after reflashing ;)13:14
Lynourehmm, when I connect to on my laptop, it's fast and works, on the N800 takes age. Same wlan, even.13:15
keesjhttps or not? but I have the same feeling13:15
milhouseslight difference in horsepower maybe13:15
keesjI also have some trouble clicking links sometimes13:16
keesjso and click download does not work and I have to try it many times13:16
milhouseare you trying to download the attachement from the link?13:16
LynoureI would think so, if it was not the "Connecting" part where that happens. Putting in a http request is not so much work.13:16
infobotmilhouse meant: link==bug13:17
*** svu has quit IRC13:17
keesjhow about using some links2 browser with an mouse enabled xterm?13:17
Lynoureand other websites come up just in 1 second13:18
Lynourecompared to 3 minutes and waiting...13:18
milhouseor wget.... you should be able to download the archive over http - here's the url
milhouseout of interest, is this 770 or n800, opera or micro-b?13:18
LynoureN800, no idea what the default browser is called...13:19
milhousei'll take a stab at Opera13:19
LynoureSame happens also when I just try to access the maemo repos for a package list13:19
keesjmicro-b on 770 is not supported , so that answers it all13:20
keesjI just tried to install skype on 770 with he, it starts but them stops13:21
milhousesounds like you've got network issues on your n800... i'd suggest having a look at bug 163613:21
_MonkeyBug 1636 might be found at
LynoureChanging browsers probably will not help in Application manager...13:21
keesjis mmppl still agregated on
keesjany xmoto players?13:25
Lynourewlan_sleep_timeout helped13:28
milhousethere's a second setting - should be detailed further along in the bug13:29
JaffaAnyone with some X expertise know of a simple way in a shell script of checking if a particular key is held down? I want to add a delay to the "Eject" key on my keyboard by checking if it's still held down after a second13:29
milhousenot a clue13:30
Lynourehmmm, gah, where is that pesky Documents folder... does not seem to be ~/MyDocs13:32
milhouseit's a hidden directory13:32
milhousels -la ~/MyDocs13:33
keesjJaffa: within a single app?13:35
LynoureNo RSS Reader starting even now.13:36
milhousewierd... have you installed anything since it last worked?13:36
*** W_I has joined #maemo13:37
milhousei don't know if it can be started from the command line, maybe that would shed more light - anyone able to suggest?13:37
LynoureAccording to Home it last updated at 2:38am... after that I installed xterm, dropbear ssh client, omweather and simplelauncher13:37
Jaffakeesj: I want to do something like "checkkey XF86Eject && echo 'yes, still down'" in a shell script13:40
milhouseLynoure - as the "user", just type "/usr/bin/osso_rss_feed_reader" in the xterm window, it should start the RSS app13:42
milhouseif it crashes you may get some idea why it crashes13:42
LynoureIs there strace or somesuch for N800? :)13:43
* Lynoure just loves strace13:43
milhousestrace is on the device13:43
Lynoureoh, goodie :)13:44
LynoureBut the windowsy reboot seemed to help13:45

DeformatiDoes this tutorial apply to 2.2 as well?

RushPLpupnik: I actually thought about treating that nokia as a desktop. I wondered about the virtual keyboard issue, I think it could be solved by treating the whole screen area as a keyboard, so that if you know the layout, you know where to tap. (optionally it could display a grid)22:33
RushPLI don't know however if X supports explicit drawing, so that you can draw some opaque lines.22:33
