I did these, and I'm testing them right now. Give it a try. I just put a more recent build there (20050907)

I only tested the GPE image so far, and let me tell you: it's really worth a try!

GPE is really great, and even includes several browsers (dillo2, gpe-mini-browser and minimo - but I couldn't build minimo)

Don't forget to read the README.

Yo Fred,

tried the gpe and it looked great, was even able to build Minimo (from the http://www.openzaurus.org/official/unstable/3.5.3/feed/x11), but my simpad has only 32mB (and 32 mB flash) so I don't think gpe suits him (mabye after modding him with a sd-card...). So installed the Opie (large) and that looked even greater; seems like this is the opie 3.5.3 (witch also runs on my collie and i like very much...) and beside some minor grafical hums (some of the images seems to me a bit blury as if the are maded for a smaller screen (the collie perhaps?) ) it looks great. Still everyone is forgetting to put the cf card in de etc/fstab but beside that; great work has been done!
Are you working with the opensimpad.org, and is this a possible 0.9rc2 or are you just 'one your own'?

Try editing /etc/init.d/opie and add
Code: [Select]
export QWS_KEYBOARD=SIMpad

added in /etc/init.d/opie:

root@simpad:~# cat /etc/init.d/opie
#!/bin/sh
#
[ -z $LOGNAME ] && export LOGNAME=root && export HOME=/home/root
[ -z $HOME ] && export HOME=/home/$LOGNAME

export QWS_KEYBOARD=SIMpad
export QTDIR=/opt/QtPalmtop
export OPIEDIR=/opt/QtPalmtop
export QPEDIR=/opt/QtPalmtop
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$OPIEDIR/lib
export PATH=$PATH:$OPIEDIR/bin

but still no buttons to work .....

Ah yeah, according to
Code: [Select]
QWSKeyboardHandler *QWSServer::newKeyboardHandler( const QString &spec )
{
 Â   QWSKeyboardHandler *handler = 0;

 Â   QString device;
 Â   QString type;
 Â   int colon=spec.find(':');
 Â   if ( colon>=0 ) {
 Â       type = spec.left(colon);
 Â       device = spec.mid(colon+1);
 Â   } else {
 Â       type = spec;
 Â   }
 Â   if ( type == "Buttons" ) {
#if defined(QT_QWS_SIMPAD)
 Â       qDebug( "QWSKeyboardHandler: using SIMpad switches handler..." );
 Â       handler = new QWSsimpadButtonsHandler();
#elif defined(QT_QWS_YOPY)
 Â       handler = new QWSyopyButtonsHandler();
#elif defined(QT_QWS_CASSIOPEIA)
 Â       handler = new QWSVr41xxButtonsHandler();
#endif
 Â   } else if ( type == "QVFbKeyboard" ) {
 Â       handler = new QWSVFbKeyboardHandler();
 Â   } else if ( type == "USB" ) {
 Â       handler = new QWSUsbKeyboardHandler(device);
 Â   } else if ( type == "TTY" ) {
 Â       handler = new QWSTtyKeyboardHandler(device);
 Â   }
 Â   else if( type == "Samsung" )  {
 Â       handler = new QWSSamsungKeypadHandler(device);
 Â   }
 Â   else {
 Â       qWarning( "Keyboard type %s:%s unsupported", spec.latin1(), device.latin1() );
 Â   }
you may have more luck with QWS_KEYBOARD="Buttons"...

BTW A little problem with that approach : using USB: /dev/input/event1 works fine - until you unplug then replug the keyboard. If you use devfs, with the device gone, OPIE won't find your reintroduced keyboard.

Yep changing QWS_KEYBOARD into export QWS_KEYBOARD="Buttons" or even export QWS_KEYBOARD=Buttons fixes the buttons,
thanks laurens
