  Debian Linux keyboard configuration
Posted by: nafmo - 03-20-2018, 08:31 AM - Forum: Linux on Gemini - Replies (9)

Hi!

Does anyone know how to get the keyboard layout configured under the Debian boot? I installed it yesterday, and I can only get the very basic keyboard functions to work, i.e just the base character and shifted character, none of the Fn+key combination work, which makes it hard to access the symbols necessary to drive the Linux command line.

The included Desktop Environment seems to be on the slow side, I am planning on replacing it with LXDE, which is designed to run on lower-end machines (I even run it on my high-end desktop because of its lack of unnecessary distracting screen candy), probably with lxlauncher to use as a touch-screen launcher, but without a working keyboard I am not getting anywhere.

Is there any work ongoing to make the various Gemini keyboard layouts available under Linux (I have a Swedish physical keyboard)? If not, where do I contribute? (I used to be a Debian developer, but dropped out due to lack of time and bureaucratic issues).

  [SOLVED] Can't seem to use the flash tool
Posted by: Marjorie - 03-17-2018, 12:31 AM - Forum: Gemini Flash/Partition tool - Replies (12)

Hello,

Sorry for the dumb question.
I would like to try out the Linux preview on the Gemini.

My host computer is Arch Linux so I set up a win7 machine running in Virtualbox.

I installed the flash tool drivers on win7.
Then I ran the flash tool to perform a backup of the NVRAM first.
When I click Readback and restart the Gemini nothing happens, the program is supposed to detect the Gemini and start the backup, but it doesn't happen.
The screen stays like this:

   

   

USB-wise the Gemini is recognized by Windows, I can see it in the explorer. Windows reacts every time I plug or unplug the Gemini.
I even added USB filters on Virtualbox to 're-plug' the Gemini automatically.

I suppose the Gemini has to be restarted in a certain way to be detected by the flash tool. What am I doing wrong ?

  Sailfish OS: is there an image like shown on MWC18

Hi,

The gemini PDA at the MWC18 was shown with a sailfish OS on it. Is this image as technical preview available?

  GPS working?
Posted by: gfoster - 03-11-2018, 08:53 PM - Forum: Android on Gemini - Replies (2)

I've just been reading (on the main pages) about the disabled / non functional compass in the shipping devices. Does this mean that GPS doesn't work either? i.e. will realtime mapping apps - like Google maps / Co-pilot Live work correctly on this device (under Android of course)

My order in in the 6000's so I'm guessing it will be a while before I receive mine, so reall feedback from an actual user would be great.

Thanks

  CRC error on Gemini_Debian_TP
Posted by: Zvonimir - 03-11-2018, 02:43 AM - Forum: Gemini Flash/Partition tool - Replies (7)

I downloaded Debian image twice - getting CRC error BOTH times on the *.img file. This is not good.
I suggest double-check, and re-posting.

  Typo in the "Linux flash guide"
Posted by: Zvonimir - 03-11-2018, 01:01 AM - Forum: Gemini Flash/Partition tool - Replies (23)

Hi,

I caught a small typo in the Linux Flash Guide on http://support.planetcom.co.uk/index.php...lash_Guide.

It says: "Once downloaded please unzip both the flash tool and the firmware. Next, run the flash tool by double clicking on flash_tool in the SP Flash folder.", however, there is NO "SP Flash" folder.  I tried logging in to notify dguido admin, but developer credentials are NOT working on support.planetcom.co.uk website.

We should probably rectify both - i.e. allow login (for catching bugs on the support website), and also correct incorrect reference to SP Flash folder.

Thanks,

Z.

  Recovery mode (to flash)
Posted by: wkumari - 03-07-2018, 04:40 AM - Forum: Linux on Gemini - Replies (3)

This is a really stupid question, but how do I get into recovery mode (so that I can use the flash tool to install the dual boot loader?) Normally I'd press the Volume Up button while powering on, but there isn't a physical button (and Fn Volume Up doesn't do it).

  Japanese Kana input problem
Posted by: Nobumichi Kozawa - 03-06-2018, 01:10 PM - Forum: Android on Gemini - Replies (2)

I found 2 problems in keyboard_layout_japanese_gemini.kcm of Gemini Keyboard application APK.
The problems happen on kana input, not roma-ji input.

Problem 1. Incorrect kana character is mapped. 
This is obvious problem.  When I try to enter "め", "ぬ" is inputted.  No way to input "め". This is simple map file problem.
I found following entry in keyboard_layout_japanese_gemini.kcm.

key M {
    label:                              '\u3082'
    base:                               '\u3082'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u30FB'
    fn:                                 '\u306C'
}


'\u306C' is hiragana character "ぬ". This should be '\u3081'.  Code would be following.


key M {
    label:                              '\u3082'
    base:                               '\u3082'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u30FB'
    fn:                                 '\u3081'
}

Problem 2.  Symptom is a bit complicated to explain in English. But this would also be key map issues. I could not translate words with ゛or゜by IME.   My suggestion is change following two character codes.

key O {
    label:                              '\u3089'
    base:                               '\u3089'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u300c'
    fn:                                 '\u3099'
}

key P {
    label:                              '\u305b'
    base:                               '\u305b'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u300d'
    fn:                                 '\u309A'
}

'\u3099' should be '\u309b' and '\u309A' should be '\u309c'.

So that correct key map would be

key O {
    label:                              '\u3089'
    base:                               '\u3089'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u300c'
    fn:                                 '\u309b'
}

key P {
    label:                              '\u305b'
    base:                               '\u305b'
    shift, capslock:                    '\u300d'
    fn:                                 '\u309c'
}


If I need to report this to other method, please let me know.

  HDMI Output not working
Posted by: Fecn - 03-02-2018, 03:16 PM - Forum: Android on Gemini - Replies (13)

Hi Folks,

I've been trying to get the Gemini USB-C -> HDMI cable working on Android, but I get no output on everything TV I've tried to connect it to. HDMI is switched on in the settings, but there's no option for setting the resolution.

Am I missing some trick to get the HDMI output turned on? Tried googling etc but can't find any specific info about steps required to enable it other than just turning it on in the settings.

Would appreciate it if anyone knows what I'm doing wrong. Perhaps I just have a faulty cable?

Cheers!!

Just got my Gemini PDA... not even taken it out of the box yet, but I wanted to hop onto here to let people know that things have been shipping. I was order 200, so should have been one of the first. 

Things are getting exciting now.... I'm off to open the box :-)
