6000 - Tosa / USB Mouse?
« on: December 28, 2004, 10:20:18 am »
Alright, Cwaig...

Santa has come and gone.. hopefully he left you a 6000.

Hope you like it. Can't wait til you get a chance to figure out  how to route mouse events to QCOP.

Let me know if you need any help, like with testing it (my Z programmingi skills would likely not be up to snuff).

6000 - Tosa / Who has a 6000?

- a "magnetic shield" (?) to put on the headphones cable
If that "magnetic shield" is somewhat cylindrical and about an inch long, then I think it's supposed to go on the power cable (between the Z and the box).

6000 - Tosa / USB Mouse?

What you need is Yakty's InputHelper applet - this provides a mouse cursor that can be controlled via QCOP messages, then you'll need to code up a small program to route mouse movement and button events to the QCOP channel.

Or you can wait 'til Christmas, when I get the SL6000 my wife's bought for me and I'll code it up myself
Well,, still waiting for Christmas..

In the meantime I figured I would install the InputHelper applet (which I got from here

but I am not seeing a pointer... do I have to have a mouse connected?

Cwaig, I'm sure it might be hard for you to provide an answer on that without your 6k in hand.. but perhaps there are some steps I need so take that I haven't yet.

6000 - Tosa / Screen Problems
« on: December 16, 2004, 02:47:38 pm »
I have 1 dead pixel in my z6k.. grrrr

I called Sharp IMMEDIATELY.

Dead pixel tolerance is 3.

They said I could send it in and they would replace the screen but that they could not guarantee that the replacement would not have any dead pixels either. (Plus I think that it would have cost me, since it hadn't yet qualified for repair under warranty).

They are supposed to still be honoring the warranty.

Fortunately, it's just one red pixel, not the green and blue, so I ALMOST never notice it.... but deep down, I know it's there....

I figured I would save sending it in for warranty work for when something really goes wrong.

6000 - Tosa / battery life & flying?
« on: December 16, 2004, 02:43:05 pm »
I have subjected my Z in the "suspended and unplugged overnight test" and it passed with flying colors (no pun intended).

I guess that does provide circumsantial, at least, evidence that shutdown/halt commands at the command-line, while appearing to put the Z down, actually leaves the device in a power consuming mode (although, from my experience, not enough to bring down a passenger jet [JetBlue flies Airbus... can't comment on Boeing])  

If they allow cellphone use on planes, I wonder if it will then be ok to enable the wifi. Not that you'd have anything to connect to but an ad-hoc network, at least for now.

6000 - Tosa / Asking For Date/time Every Reboot? Help?!
« on: December 16, 2004, 11:08:54 am »
mine seems to reset itself to January 1, 1970. (I think that's what it is, I'd have to reboot to confirm, which I'd rather not do)

Also, if I press (or tap) "OK" the date/time window remains on the screen and I have to manually kill it (from the console).
If I hit "cancel" or tap the "x" it goes away, but the time is still incorrect.
I think I may have done something to cause this to happen, but I'm not sure what. Either installing a package or maybe something with fb.modes (used for playing full screen movies).

As an alternative, I've taken to setting the date/time with the "date" command and trying to avoid rebooting, and try not to let it bother me too much. All of my other settings seem to be intact, so I don't think it's the internal battery.

6000 - Tosa / Gaim

Just to make sure you have your volume on, not muted and the "alarms" checkbox in the volume applet checked.

My first attempts which failed to give me a sound/buzzer were IMs I sent to myself on the Z from the Z.

Then I sent from my desktop to the Z and it honked at me.

I've gotten Gaim running on my 6k with the stock Sharp ROM, but I am not getting any "notify" on messages. Neither the LED or the buzzer.

Anyone else?



My bad.. the buzzer (or more appropriately "horn") does work...

But I still don't see any LED indication... at least not yet..

I suppose that's subject to change.

6000 - Tosa / How Does The 6k Perform As A Music Player
« on: December 13, 2004, 03:50:46 pm »
I have to say that I'm pleased with the Z as a mp3 player.. except, of course, it's ENORMOUS by comparison.
But, I don't listen to music at the gym, so it's fine.

I often use mine with just the built-in speaker ala transistor radio.

Or, I connect to a samba share and then have all my mp3s on my desktop/server available to the Z wirelessly.

When I do use headphones (see this thread for 2.5 -> 3.5mm adapters) I find the clarity to be great and can pick out parts of the mix that I don't typically hear thru regular speakers.

I suppose this is all subjective, but no complaints here.... just don't take your Z on the treadmill and drop it (even though it should be able to survive the fall.. I've read nothing about it surviving being stepped on)

interesting.. ok, I will try another test where I just suspend it overnight, rather than a shutdown.
(I usually do suspend it, but tend to leave it plugged in).

I never would have thought that the processor was still drawing power, but I guess these things aren't quite desktop machines, either.

I recall that OpenZaurus (at least for the 5x00) had a "shutdown" option, so that's what gave me the idea to use the commandline shutdown.

6000 - Tosa / USB Adaptor & Cables
« on: December 02, 2004, 06:14:20 pm »
here's a link to the page for the actual item..
iRiver PMP USB Host Adapter Cable

This page is supposed to appear in a frame, so not all of the links work properly.
But hopefully this will serve as a guide for those searching to find it.

Or you can search for "PMP USB Host Adapter Cable" from their estore homepage.
