Soundwave, I have to ask--wot the devil is that cradle you're using there?  It looks like some sort of bizarre pivoting Z cradle.  Intriguing.

Only problem is that Yakty's Japanese, so all the instructions for how to use InputHelper are also in Japanese, so it does take a bit of figuring out...
Is there a nice English howto for this?
I had previously installed inputhelper, but wasn't able to produce any results. I guess I didn't realize that I also would need keyhelper.

Heh -- I think you are talking about the mounting layer that comes with the TargusTargus Universal IR keyboard.

In portrait mode the cradle actually works pretty well holding the Z normally, although the support arms are a bit finnicky. In order to use the USB port I'm having to lift the Zaurus with a rolled up mouse carrying case, but that's okay I suppose .

I haven't had as much success using the Targus IR keyboard with the Zaurus in landscape mode (mostly because of the short range of the swiveling IR arm).

I can only see a link to libusbmouseapplet.so.1.0.0.  Is that the latest/greatest?

Aha; that explains it.  Thanks!

NOTE: When Yakty releases the new version of InputHelper, use that instead of libusbmouseapplet - remember to delete libusbmouseapplet before installing InputHelper though...
The new version (v 1.0) has been released.

I just noticed it on a Japanese news site (www.mobilenews.ne.jp) - with a note giving you credit (^_^)

Well, lo and behold here it is.. I swear I didn't see it before.

It's a little bit of a rough read, but should be workable. I will try it tonight or tomorrow and report back.

ok.. not so difficult for basic operation

I installed all 3 ipkgs, but I suppose that KeyHelperConf could be optional.

InputHelper "English"
http://yakty.s31.xrea.com/cgi-bin/wiki/lin...HelperApplet#i8

KeyHelper "translated"
http://216.239.37.104/translate_c?hl=en&u=...6lr%3D%26sa%3DG

KeyHelperConf "translated"
http://216.239.37.104/translate_c?hl=en&u=.../keyhelperconf/

I haven't been able to successfully do anything with KeyHelper yet.

Start InputHelper (from the konsole as root) with the following command:
Code: [Select]
qcop QPE/InputHelper 'handle()'
Once it's running, I was able to hotplug my usb mouse with no further mods.

I don't like having the spacebar be the "mouse click" for a couple of reasons.
1) Keyboard drawer must be open to get to the spacebar
2) When typing with the applet activated, the spacebar "clicks". To insert a space, you have to use the action button (or whatever it's called.. the button in the middle of the directional pad).

I haven't figured out how to make it use the action button instead... doesn't that make more sense?

Disable/Enable the pointer/clicking with
Code: [Select]
khctl disable|enable
or just khctl for a list of options
again as root...

it would probably be helpful to have a taskbar icon to turn it on/off... but I don't know how to do that, yet.
or, if we could figure out how to change the click from the spacebar to the action button, there would be a reduced need to repeatedly disable/enable the pointer.

Solution for starting/stopping the InputHelper pointer.


as root

create a new file in /home/QtPalmtop/bin called "inputhelper" and chmod it 755
inputhelper
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
qcop QPE/InputHelper 'handle()'


create a new file in /home/QtPalmtop/apps/Applications called "inputhelper.desktop"
inputhelper.desktop
Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
CanFastload = 1
Comment = Enable/Disable Mouse Pointer
Exec = inputhelper
Icon = A_key5
Name = InputHelper
Type = Application
HidePrivilege = 1
Display=640x480/144dpi,480x640/144dpi

restart, I think...

This will give you an "InputHelper" icon in the "Applications" tab that you can click on to start/stop the mouse pointer.
Also, click and hold on that new icon and uncheck the "magnified screen" box.

Since I don't like having the "Record" button start up the voice recorder, I used "Settings/Application Key" to launch "InputHelper". It's a little slow since you have to hold down the Record button for a couple of seconds before it launches... you could use any other button of your choice, like the one with the little dot right above "Cancel", but I like to have that one mapped to "tab".

The pointer starts/stops quickly, but it sorta hangs with the little hourglass in the taskbar, which prevents you from rapidly starting/stopping the pointer in succession. Not sure why, it doesn't do that if you enter the same command from the konsole. Any ideas on how to speed this up?

Also, the documentation states that you can use either of these commands for InputHelper
qcop QPE/InputHelper 'handle()'
qcop QPE/InputHelper 'handle(int)'
where the 2nd option allows you to enter a number which will specify the number of clicks before the pointer will automatically stop, but I can't get it to work. Anyone?

Still haven't figured out how to use the dir. pad button instead of the space bar.

Hi folks - looks like a grand forum you have here.
I'm a complete Zaurus and Linux virgin, but I'm being well tempted to stray from my current ppc     by this offering from Archos, the pma400

which I would like to use with a usb Twiddler 2 from Handykey, a combined chording keyboard and trackpoint mouse.
[img]http://www.handykey.com/twiddler.gif\" border=\"0\" class=\"linked-image\" /]

I know its not a Zaurus, but this thread came up in a google search for me, and looks very interesting. Forgive the numbty question, but Cwaig, or anyone one else, is there any reason why your fine looking applet shouldn't work with the Archos device (which runs Qtopia over Linux) or with the Twiddler, which is Linux compatible?

many thanks

pie

a newbie question. when i connected my usb mouse,

I got the following dmesg:

Code: [Select]
hub.c: USB new device connect to bus1/1, assigned device number 4
usb.c: USB device 4 (vend/prod 0xd62/0xa100) is not claimed by any active driver.

Does that mean the usb mouse is not supported?

To articulate my problem:

* I installed inputhelper. From what I read, it should work out-of-box (at most a reboot) after installing inputhelper...
* I had the following module sspit out by lsmod
Code: [Select]
Module                  Size  Used by
sd_mod                 10736   2  (autoclean)
usb-storage            21840   1

p80211                 24176   0  [prism2_usb]

I'm suspecting maybe the fast kernel didn't have certain module loaded. Sorry for my laziness, I should have flashed back to check what I'm missing but I rely on my 6K to get some of my work done. Stablility is my current priority.

Do you guys know what module or step I'm missing?

I looked up the source in linux-2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-common-20041002.tar.gz

seems I was missing the following  two modules in the fast kernel

usbmouse
usbkbd

could somebody post the sharp stock modules for these two. and where I should put them? Thanks in advance
