I have a GUI application for the Z (SL- 6000L), which runs perfectly fine when the screen is in normal view. However, after having rotated the screen, the application refuses to run, and I get the following message in the terminal:

QLinuxFbScreen::connect() disp spec Transformed:Rot0:Vga:0 != server disp spec
Transformed driver cannot connect

I would be most grateful for any tips on how to fix this, I really need the GUI to run in landscape view.

By the way, even when the application runs fine, I get the following message:

SlSharedManager: can't get proc entry
could not open translation file /home/QtPalmtop//i18n/en/libsl.qmid

I guess it would spare me some annoyance if I could get rid of these lines also...

not quite fully relevant but I was playing with my QT/E application and found that it ran fine on my SL-C6000 in portrait, fine on my SL-C860 in landscape, but the other way round gave me the QPEApplication error "Transformed driver cannot connect"

I was running my app from the command line in both cases.

When I created a proper .desktop entry in the /opt/QtPalmTop/apps/X directory, and an icon to match, with the .desktop specifying everything correctly, then it worked. Oddly, when I got the reference to the icon wrong, it ran in double-size lo-res portrait mode! Also, dynamic rotation also magically worked too.

So, don't underestimate the importance of a properly setup .desktop file! Just copy a simple one that works.
