Zaurus - pdaXrom / Keymapping Ir How-to
« on: July 27, 2007, 02:42:03 pm »
Hello, I've installed XIrKD, and of course it doesn't work because I've got a Belkin IR Keyboard.  I'd like to try to use Kopsis Zkbdd, but his feeds are down.  So, i've got the idea to modify the existing targus keymap in XIrKD for Belkin.  Unfortunantly, I am not sure what software to use that will tell me the key codes.  Any ideas?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Advice About The Zkbdd Driver On Pdaxii13 ...

did you follow this:

this is also a nice read up
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=165410\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

Hi !

I checked up the Zkbdd Users guide, mmm but it's funny, the document mention that the keybdev module is already loaded for new Zaurus like C1000 or C3100 but if you check the kernel version you will get just "2.4", the point is with the minor version, I guess that pdaXii13 uses a <2.4.20.

I guess that because the problem with the zkbdd was solved when I loaded the keybdev module.

Thanks a lot

Hi, good day.

Recently I updated my Z to pdaXii13, I have installed the Zkbdd (driver for IR keyboards).

The drivers works in test mode, but when I launch it in normal mode it does not do anything.
I thought that perhaps it was a problem with the Palm driver config file but I tried with the other drivers and I got the same result. Besides I searched on the forums and I found that another user got the same problem with other IR model keyboard.

I will really appreciate any advice about this, I do not know what could be wrong.

Best Regards,

Hi, good day

It seems that Sharp still remembers the Zaurus, they release new models of their "e-dictionnaries", but just for Korea:

I would like to know the specs of this producs, maybe Sharp backs to Zaurus someday.

Best Regards.

By the way someone knows where I could find information about how to build a motherboard, last night I was thinking "mmm Why should we wait till some corporation release a real Zaurus succesor??, I know, build one by oneself must be expensive, but could be possible", so what do you think??

Zaurus - pdaXrom / New Packages Announcement
« on: April 13, 2007, 04:14:30 pm »
Hi very good day

I have built two programmes for pdaXrom using Beta3:
1) pkg-config (version 0.20), it is a script to putting together all the build flags when compiling/linking a lot. I need it to build "Geany".

2) geany (version .0.10.2), Geany is a text editor with basic features of an IDE, it is fast and small.

These are my first two packages, so I guess that they must work on Beta 1-3 and pdaXii3.
Please let me know if they works fine for you. I hope they be useful.  

Best Regards.

By the way, the default fonts are small, but it is easy change it, just go to menu Edit -> Preferences -> Interface

I add also a Perl script to change the default color templates, because it is hard to read characters in yellow. The script opens the template files and change the specific color (my case yellow to green), how you can see in the screenshots.

Code: [Select]

print "Files to process: \n";
local $ruta="/usr/local/share/geany/";
local @files= qx(ls $ruta);
local $num=0;
foreach my $myfile (@files){
    open(FILE, "< $ruta$myfile");
    local $cont=join("",);
    if($cont =~ /0xff901e/i){
  print "Processing file: $myfile \n";
  $cont =~ s/0xff901e/0x1e4a16/g;
  open(FILE, "> $ruta$myfile");
  print FILE $cont;
print "Number of files changed: $num.";

Hi, good day.

A "few" weeks ago I tried to compile POSE (Palm OS Emulator) for Zaurus (using pdaXrom Beta3).
Old posts:

I did the best I could, the binary works, but when I try to load the Palm ROM I get a error message. I have attached a screenshot.

I do not know what I could do to fix it, any adivice will be appreciated.

By the way, to compile POSE, it must be done on the Zaurus because it requieres FLUID which is compiled and used on the fly when you compile POSE.

I apply a couple of patches to make it works, if anybody want try I can upload the patches.

Thanks a lot.
Best Regards.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Question With Fltk And Their Ui Builder Fluid
« on: February 15, 2007, 04:35:38 pm »
I would like to add the c++ error that I got:
c++: Internal error: Terminated (program cc1plus)
Please submit a full bug report
make[1]: *** [EmDlg.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory /mnt/linux/src/Emulator_Src_3.5/BuildUnix/
By the way, I did it using pdaXrom beta3 on Zaurus SL-C3100.

Besides, I used the patch from the qpose page:

But it does not work

Any advice to compile POSE??

Best Regards.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Question With Fltk And Their Ui Builder Fluid

Hi, good Day.

A few weeks ago I wrote a post here about compile Palm OS Emulator (POSE) for Z, I got an answer by "plcg", thanks!:

Well, the second part of the history is that I could not compile it, there are different ways to do it, but no one works, summary reasons:

1) POSE needs FLTK, it works on Z, but the problem is that POSE also needs the FLTK's UI builder, called FLUID, without it there is no way to compile it.

2) The FLTK version as .ipk (1.1.4) do not include FLUID, so it is necessary to compile from source, the problem here is that just one version of FLTK compile with FLUID on Zaurus, it is the fltk-1.1.7 version, I tried with the other version and fail, mainly due to FLUID.

3) Besides There is no way (well I do not know a way to do it) to use a cross compiler to create the .ipk on a PC, mainly because FLUID needs to be executed when you run "make", but if you do that on a PC the binary cannnot be executed  so the package "must be compiled on Z".
(I tried it using the /opt/cross/arm/3.4.6-xscale-softvfp-akita/ cross compiler method)

4) Well, once I got the FLTK working with FLUID on Z(version 1.1.7), next step si compile POSE, ups! the problem is the memory (I think), if you run "make" running X, you will got a compiler error, but if you close the X session and run "make" from console mode the compiler works better but finally it falls, it describes a gcc error, so I think that it needs more memory to compile it.

Well those are my conclusion, maybe I am doing something wrong, Any advice of you will be really apreciated, I would like to build a POSE package to share, because I think that there are really useful Palm's apps that could be used on Z.

Thanks a lot.
Best Regards.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Problem With Fltk Trying To Comple Pose
« on: January 17, 2007, 02:30:52 pm »
Hi, good day.

I am trying to compile POSE (PalmOS Emulator) for pdaXrom, I download the source of pose and install the FLTK from this feed:

When I try to configure it to make it, I got this:
#./configure --prefix /mnt/linux
checking for 'int fl_height (void)' in -lfltk ... no
configure: error: *** FLTK *must* be installed before running configure. ***

But I already installed FLTK, I do not know if I am missing something, any advice?
I am doing this because I could not find any IPK of POSE.
By the way, I am doing that on a C3100 running pdaxrom 1.3

Thanks a lot for your help.
Best Regards.

Hi, good day,

Last weekend I was working on palm_3169ww.lua config file, but I could not find the "@" symbol, I do not know which code is, I mean I know which key is pressed and the scancode got, but the problem is that no one ztoken seems works.
I tried using "xev" command and I got something like this:

Pressing "-" key from palmkeyboard  with "zkbdd -d swtich" I got:
(which gives scancode(normal_map,0x29)-> ZK_PLUS -> token 59):

Pressing "-" key from palmkeyboard with "xev" I got:
state 0x2000, keycode 67 (keysym 0x2d, minus), same_screen YES,
XKeysymToKeycode return keycode: 63
XLookupString gives 1 byte: (2d) "-"

It works fine, but the problem is with other symbols, for me the most important is "@" that I cannot find  I got this trying to get "@":

Pressing "@" key from palmkeyboard  with "zkbdd -d swtich" I got:
(which gives scancode(normal_map,0x79)-> ZK_AT -> token 61):

Pressing "@" key from palmkeyboard with "xev" I got:
state 0x0, keycode 67 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
XKeysymToKeycode return keycode:
XLookupString gives 0 byte:

I do not what to do or how the ztoken filter works, I guess that ztokens are translated to other keycodes which Zaurus gets.

Besides its funny that some scancodes works different if you use then in the map_normal or in map_shift.

Any advice please??, How could I know the way to get "@" symbol??

Best Regards,

Hola amigo, buen dia.

El rendimiento y comparativa con la Zaurus depende del modelo que quieras adquirir de Zaurus y del ROM que pienses usar con ella, algunos ROMs como el que traen de fabrica hace que se parezca mas al estilo Palm, otras ROM como PdaXrom hace que se trabaje mas como si fuera una micro PC.

En general si tienen mas rendimiento que una Palm, la Clie UX tiene semejanza en estilo a las Zaurus de la serie SL-Cxxx, pero por ejemplo ese modelo de Sony estaba padre porque incluia todo y estaba practica de usar, las Zaurus SL-Cxxx son un poco pesadonas, no tienen red inalambrica, pero te dan la posibilidad de tener conexion con tarjetas SD y CF.

haaa y una cosa excelente! (para mi), es que la zaurus la puedes preparar para que se al conectarla a la PC puedas trabajar como si fuera un disco duro externo, inclusive trabajando sobre las tarjetas SD o CF y funciona muy bien

mmm y en el sentido de diversion, como me dijo un buen amigo (mimeca) las zaurus dan dolores de cabeza, eso siiii, pero al final creo que bien vale la pena y ello implica dedicarles algo de tiempo

Espero la opinion haya sido util.

Hi, good day
Sorry for write to you until now, but I could not yesterday.
Last night I was working with the keyboard again trying to fix some keys.

I followed the advice of Kopsis, I leave the ztokens.lua as original and work just on the palm_3169ww.lua.

On normal way it almost works with all keys now, but there is something wrong with the use of "Shift" and "Caps" keys, it is funny because sometimes the Shift key works like Caps.

But the problem (I guess) is with the map_shift array of the tokens, for example, when I press a key (with shift or caps mode), I get an scancode, it is ok, but when I look for the scancode in the map_shift it is 0 !!.

and example is with the key of the "@" I got an scancode of 0x79, and looking at the array it is 0, but it is funny because just a line before there is the token ZK_AT, at the scancode 0x71, the same occur with other keys using shift or caps.

I guess that this has a relation with others comments about that when they press a key like " they got a number, it seems that in normal way the zkbdd use a kind of "keycode & filter" in binary add,

Could that means we can only use some tokens just in shift or caps ??

I feel a little blind because I would like to use some keys but I do not know what token name match with that character.

Any advice??

or a little explication about how this works??

Thanks in advance and best regards.

Hi,  good day.
I am using a 3100 with pdaXrom beta3 and the palm IRkeyboard 3169ww.
using zkbdd works fine!, but some key are wrong, I mean:

I read other posts and I took a look at /usr/share/zkbdd/drivers/palm_3169ww.lua, the file looks good, so I check the /usr/share/zkbdd/drivers/ztokens.lua and something seems tobe wrong there.

Becase, for example, when I press the "Shift right key" I got a ".", and if I press "period key" I got other character.
In the ztokens.lua file there is a kind of table that had relation of tokens and codes:

but I changed it to: ZK_PERIODTMP = 64 ... ZK_PERIOD = 103

Only in that way I got a correct token link.

My doubt is, How was created th token table??
Where can I find the other symbols like "@", "&"??
Because they seems to be lost and I do not know how find them.

It looks like this:
IRkeyboard -> zkbdddriver -> palm_3169ww.lua -> ztokens (X seems to be wrong)-> Zaurus

Thanks a lot and Best Regards,

Muchas gracias, eso hare.


Thanks for the advices, but I have tried the different combinations and it still do not turn on.
I do not understand Why, pdaXrom looks fine, and now eith nothing turn on, even the lights do not work.
There is not reaction on the Zaurus.

But please if you know other way, let me know. I will try to leave it without energy all afternoon and at night try again.

Best regards.
