This is a milestone release. On this image we have working hard buttons and working directional pad. Blueman-0.5 and Iceweasel are included as well as the standard compliment of LXDE offerings.
Found a neat application here:
Its a "oh wow look at that" program that I have yet to use. It looked neat so I am hoping its useful. It may provide some client server control structure for those of us with media centers or home automation on the mind. Included the anyremote app, the gui for the app and a html converter that will allow one to use a webpage for interfacing control.
Audacious is in here as well as audacious plugins. Streaming and local playing of mp3 files is possible. Bluetooth is released as "testing" as this is a new manager. The current blueman(1.10) would not fit as it requires Gcc compilers for it to build. Please let me know how 0.5 goes.
Synergy is a mouse and keyboard sharing application that will allow you to use wifi to share mice and keyboards with other local computers.
Wicd Network manager is great in my mind as its one of the only managers I can find that signs back on to the last network it was associated to without any interaction. As long as your air card is supported wpa should be no problem. ***Cisco air 350 cards currently do not do wpa.
Rdesktop is also included. This should allow you to remote desktop with windows based computers.
MC file manager is in here as well.
Currently the keyboard button opens the keyboard
Home button opens pcmanfm
Wireless button opens bluetooth manager as the wicd app sits in the tray
Screen button is mapped as the return key
If you wish to change these simply:
Code: Select all
sudo nano /home/webdt/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml
I have noticed that if I start the webdt with a keyboard or another usb device attached that the buttons dont always work. Most devices exist or get their power from the usb bus on the DT. When we start up with a device plugged in it stands to reason that some items in the DT on the usb bus get addressed slightly differently. If I was better with code I may be able to figure out a way to cover for these slight address changes when other items are plugged in. If you can avoid plugging in usb devices until the desktop shows that should get you working buttons each time.

My best performance was obtained on this chip with cache set to write-back. This setting was within the cache section.
Next I set dma or drive speed mode to "PIO2" for both drives from the "AUTO" default. This seemed to do a little better on performance. This setting was in the i/o section.
