Flash Card Program For Testing Vocabulary?
« Reply #225 on: September 17, 2009, 11:04:23 am »
Frederic, I am so sorry.  I've totally forgot about one other hardware key on N810 that allows to see all running windows, appilcations.  It's something I rarely use.  With this key it is possible to get out of the minimized-active-dialog-window problem.

Yeah, I've heard about that key.  I don't know if it's guaranteed to be available on all Maemo devices so it does not hurt to be proactive and make the application easier to use.  For example, on the emulator, the window switching key is not available (or if it is, I don't know to which key combination it is mapped).  So I would ask you to test the latest version one more time (hopefully the last one).  If you don't see any other important issues, I will promote the application for the extras repo (the non-devel one).  I've never done that before but I think it will  make the application easier to get for normal users.  Once that is done, I can fully concentrate on version 0.12.

It works well. I do not see any other issues. Thank you once again. If I get N900 Ill let you know how it looks on it. Its hardware and software are different.

Kurochka,

Someone reported that, on Maemo version, the default fonts are too small.  Could you confirm please?  I would be curious to know which fonts you are using for labels, fields, and language-specific ones: name and size.  Should I increase the font size range?

Also, could you tell me what the usual keyboard accelerator for quitting an application on your Maemo device?  Apparently that CTRL+Q doesn't work.  Would you have better suggestions for default accelerators for the other actions in the context of Maemo?

Sorry for the delay.

The fonts I use are: DeviceSymbols (large for Labels and Very large for Fields).

I am not sure for the accelerators.  The only I use are: a for "correct answer"; w for open field; d for wrong answer.

Could you tell me if other toMOTko accelerators work on your Nokia device, especially those involving CTRL key.  For example, CTRL+P should open the Preferences window, CTRL+M should invoke the Glossary Manager if it's not already visible, CTRL+S should start a quiz.

BTW, Happy New Year 2010 to everyone!!

Happy New Year to you too.

Now that you mention it.  I tried the CTR+ accelerators and they do not work. Hmm.

By the way, my wife has given me N900 for Christmas.  I've installed toMOTko on it but have not yet figured out how to transfer glossaries. Thanks!  The USB connection to PC freaked out on me.  I'll report on my progress.

Is the problem there on both of your Nokia devices?

It would seem that this bug is caused by the implementation of Qt I'm using.  It should be fixed when Qt-4.5 is released for Maemo.  Don't know when though.  I may also need to customize (or hildonize as they say) the application for the accelerators to work (or just simply remove some of them as it's apparently recommended not to use keyboard accelerators for Fremantle apps).

In case someone cares, more details can be found here:

Nice present!  I wish I had one.  

I'm not sure that toMOTko will be usable on N900 because of the keyboard accelerator bug that seems to prevent CTRL+Space to switch input language.  Or maybe you can switch input language in a different manner using the pointing device????

Import/Export features should work but I'm curious to know how it went in your case.

I am travelling.  So, won't be able to look closer at this for some time.

toMOTko for Maemo Fremantle looks awful and is unusable at the moment.  I'm working on hildonizing the interface.  You can follow up my progress on toMOTko's blog.

For N900 users, I have released tomotko 0.11.2-9fremantle1 in extras-devel  repository.  It's not completed yet but it's functional enough to be used.  Feedback is appreciated.

Since last December I have resumed working on version 0.12 of toMOTko.  I'm wondering if there are still any toMOTko users left that are still using the application on the Zaurus?  If so, please show me a sign of life (either via this thread or PM me).
