If you do a Rom update yes everything will be gone, for Qkonsole running sideways: tab and hold the Icon und then unjack the "Display with magnified screen" this sould do the trick!

ok i got the Qkonsole working; superb!!!!

bummer about the rom update... rom 1.01 is working for me... unless it's something really fabulous i suppose i should just stick with it.

I am using QConsole on the C1000.
But now when I use vi and am editing a file, if I use the d-Pad to go down one line (down arrow) then I get the 'B' character, if I use up arrow then I get an 'A' key and so on.

As a result I am not able to use the navigation at all.

You need to hit the escape key, on the c3000 that's the cancel key, and then you should be able to move around with the arrow keys

Hi Folks,
Firstly huge thanks to Meanie for explaining that 'cancel' mapped to escape. It wasn't at all obvious to me despite the similar functionality.

This nugget of information means I can now access the menus on JED (console editor), which I am using for editing C/C++ files. I had a play with Vim and it wasn't really my thing, JED being in my view a bit more user-friendly despite the obvious emacs heritage.

I still have one issue with fonts however, since JED attempts to draw boxes around the menus that just end up as wide-char empty boxes. I've tried Fixed font, which improves things a bit, forcing the boxes to single-byte width, but it is still less than ideal. Installing unifont-16 also didn't quite achieve what I want, since the drawing characters are rendered as "cr" "EM" and "dc2" -- ideal I'm sure when viewing serial-comms but pretty ugly for drawing characters.

I also tried export LANG="en" in the hope this would help, but it had no effect.

Anyone know a font (ideally size 14 or 16) that includes the drawing characters?

Cheers,
Marcus
