Re: [Announce] TouchSearch for Fremantle

I wanted to design TouchSearch like that when I started, but it is impossible. Desktop widgets cannot have data entered directly into them via the keyboard -- this is a limitation of the device...

Cool. OK, I'll create that search engine and then push it along with the next release of TS.

Re: [Announce] TouchSearch for Fremantle

I think I found the problem. I was thinking there was an issue with the code I changed but now it appears to be a permissions problem.

I'll try to find a fix it tonight. Thanks for the feedback.

Re: Access the N900 file system through SFTP

Yeah, I always use fish:// right in Konq for this (plus, with this you can open the files remotely with Kate or similar).

Everything looks fine. All I can recommend is removing it, rebooting, and reinstalling. I have no idea what the issue is. :(

It is always hard to debug it when it doesn't show up.

But, could you please run these commands one at a time:

ls /home/user/.touchsearch/

Re: [ANNOUNCE] TouchSearch v3.1 Released!

You're welcome!

If you go to into TouchSearch's options dialog > Configure > Amazon > Edit, you can select Language/Localization and it'll give you the option to select "co.uk" for the domain!

Re: [ANNOUNCE] TouchSearch v3.1 Released!

You'll probably need to reboot after upgrading for the new version to "load" :)
