I needed a quick way to start and stop services and script icons lacked feedback, so I began work on an app that would launch fast and manage groups of services. Then I began adding features from the systemui menu, advanced-backlight and advanced-power, but made them easier to access without a stylus and consume less memory (2.8 vs 10-15 megs).

What it does and how to use it

Install program or download source code

Screenshots

Planned fixes and features

Many features and bug fixes were added to the test builds but never released to the repository. Run the following command as root to upgrade ASUI 0.6.0 to latest test build.
Code:
asui uu ; asui dit ; asui dis ; asui da ; asui dc

# reboot after running command
Fixes in the test build:
  • fix: ASUI wouldn't open if a menu was open, it nows closes the menu and opens (fixes many issues)
  • fix: charge animation no longer appears in widget editor
  • fix: battery applet now opens ASUI on release instead of press to avoid focus problems
  • fix: immediately commit most asui_state changes, doesn't fix issue with /apps/asui_state DBUS folder being deleted
  • fix: audio lock button is no longer clickable when no profiles are present
  • fix: don't set a devlock timeout for audio lock if device doesn't use one
  • fix: swiping ASUI to unmap would sometimes not unmap and also not snap the window back to fullscreen
  • fix: additional check to make sure ASUI window completely slides back onto screen
  • fix: increased drag deviation from 20 to 50 pixels (prevent some taps from being seen as swipes)
  • fix: horizontal and vertical swipes to blank and lock&blank devlock screen were triggering even when swipe didn't originate from the button bar
  • fix: keep popup clock from opening when alarm activates
  • fix: use correct alarmd ack value
  • fix: respond to acting_dead_open and acting_dead_close
  • fix: return minimal UI state when acting dead state is requested
  • fix: alarms that go off in the charging runlevel will now cause the device to boot and sound the alarm instead of silently dismissing them
  • fix: refactored focus grab/ungrab code
  • fix: retry window_grab() twice with 250ms delay between each attempt
  • fix: display notification when ASUI can't grab focus
New features in the test build:
  • added 8 command buttons
  • added 5 half widgets that hold buttons (2 buttons each)
  • visual swiping circles turn green when swipe is long enough
  • swiping down from devlock brightness control will now lower brightness
  • drain rate in the bottom 40% of battery graph, each graph line represents 10.0%/hr
  • added klogd and sysklogd to asui-settings service manager
  • booting screen
  • unused widgets and buttons can be hidden in the editor
  • the red devlock brightness control now changes between green, yellow and red
  • changed devlock timeout from 1000 to 1440 (minutes) when audio lock active
  • added message to not trust wifi fix in asui-settings
  • 'asui restart_mce' command

Great work. It looks really useful.

I haven't tried it yet, but does it allow to sort processes by memory usage ?

Yes, processes are sorted by memory usage but running processes are sorted above all others.

This gets a thanks simply for keeping maemo4 alive

Almost makes me start looking into python to do a alternative file manager (the currently available ones both have flaws imo).

Tried to install, seems libxpm4 is missing...

apt-get install libxpm4

Run that as root and then try installing it. I'll have to figure out why the dependancy isn't working. This was my first debian package.

apt-cache search libxpm gives libimlib2 as a response.

Something is wrong with the diablo maemo repository, its free directory is sitting inside sdk. The chinook maemo repository has libxpm4 and works but I copied the file to my repo so it will install without any additional changes.

Installed using Application Manager ("Click here to install"). Install went fine and program works well. Thank you for your good work.

However, 1) my version (5Oct2010) does not have on-screen or zoom button rotation control. 2) Could you furnish a user guide? I don't know how to get to the process list view. I don't know what the on-screen buttons across the top do.

Rotation support requires the community SSU, I added an install link on the download page.

2) Could you furnish a user guide? I don't know how to get to the process list view. I don't know what the on-screen buttons across the top do.
The about page describes all the features and how to use them.

The application detects rotation support and should only display the three rotation icons when present. I didn't uninstall the community SSU to make sure they didn't appear. Were those three icons visible without the community SSU installed?
