I got my USB host cable delivered today (along with some other accessories), and so I tried out Inputhelper for mouse use. Everything works great, but...

The unit will not suspend anymore. It reboots whenever I close and reopen the lid. I've tried uninstalling inputhelper, but it still reboots intead of suspending.

Any ideas? Help is greatly appreciated.

All inputhelper installs are some libraries in /opt/QtPalmtop/plugins/applets...

libinputhelperapplet.so
libinputhelperapplet.so.1
libinputhelperapplet.so.1.0
libinputhelperapplet.so.1.0.0

and a few sockets under...

/var/spool/inputhelper

called key, mouse, qcop

I think if you make sure all that is gone then the problem lies somewhere else.

I have found it pretty stable myself.

Well, truthfully, I don't want to get rid of anything. It's stable for me too, other than the fact that closing/reopening the lid reboots to c3000 (takes about a minute and some change, and always asks for date/time confirmation). Nothing else has been added, other than the inputhelper_1.0.0-1 ipk.

*EDIT*

Actually, let me amend this. It's not a reboot. Just looks like a QTopia restart. Still asks for date/time confirmation, though.

OK, I got it. It was a munged inputhelper.conf file. I removed it, then did a reinstall, and now all is well. Suspends properly with or without a mouse or keyboard attached.

Yep, on a Qtopia restart it asks for date and time.

So, what else did you add recently ?
