    Problem with the shop...

    I recently ordered two pandora batteries. Only one arrived. All of the e-mails I have received from the shop have been unfilled forms of the form: "RECEIVED MESSAGE FROM {SHOP_NAME}-SHOP" "DEAR {NAME}" Some of those e-mails are supposed to have a link to the "ticket system", but all links do...

    Application to view images from a web cam?

    I bought a cheap USB Endoscope, and I'd like to use the Pandora as a display for it, but I have been unable to find an application that will do that. Something like "Cheese" would be sufficient, but I have not found that for the Pandora. Can someone suggest something equivalent? Thanks.

    Video editing software...

    Can you recommend some open source video editing software which will allow me to cut & splice video without re-encoding the video? Every tool I've tried seems to want to re-compress the video to a different resolution and compression level than the original.

    SuperZaxxon v1.73 breaks bluetooth GPS connection

    I updated to SuperZaxxon v1.73 a few days ago. Yesterday, I tried to use my GPS, and failed miserably. After reboot, I have always had to run the command "sudo rfcomm connect 0" in a terminal before bluetooth will connect to anything. Now I get an error message "Can't find a config entry...

    USB Type-C connectors showed up at Digikey...

    None in stock yet, but you can at least order them now http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?pv28=2824&FV=fff40016%2Cfff802e4&k=USB&mnonly=0&newproducts=0&ColumnSort=0&page=1&quantity=0&ptm=0&fid=0&pageSize=25 Using this connector would probably require additional components with the...

    Interesting connectors available from this company...

    I ran across this company when looking for something else: http://www.xmultiple.com/ What caught my attention was the uSD, uUSB combo connector: http://www.xmultiple.com/xwebsite-Smart.htm This would allow the Pyra to have its uSD card externally accessible. While poking around their site, I...

    Reversable USB-A connector

    I was looking through digikey to see if micro-C connectors are available yet. Unfortunately not, but while there I saw this: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/614108247221/732-4345-1-ND/3844673 This is a reversible USB-A female connector. What this means is that the cable should plug in...

    USB 3.1 Type C connector is ready for production

    http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/14/08/12/2131247/reversible-type-c-usb-connector-ready-for-production I hope this becomes available for purchase before the Pyra is finalized. I hate the micro-B USB 3.0 connector.

    Release Loxodo & wxpython...

    I can get loxodo.py to run if I first run wxpython, then from within wxpython navigate to where loxodo.py is and execute it by the command line. Is there a way to encapsulate all of this so I can run it from an icon?

    Left nub no longer works as a mouse...

    I know this is a software bug since the left nub still works in the input tester app, but it does nothing on the desktop anymore. I was having trouble with navit. I had connected the bluetooth GPS as I always do, but navit refused to see it, so I initiated a reboot. The pandora hung during...

    Do your nubs track smoothly?

    The behaviour of my nubs when using them as a mouse annoyed me enough that I tried the Pandora Input-Tester to see how they actually behave. My left nub moves in sort of a diamond shape with corners at the up, down, left and right locations. the lines between the corners are actually concave...

    Dvorak keymap not possible on Pandora

    I finally decided to look into doing a Dvorak keymap for the Pandora. It is impossible to do. The 'S' key needs to take the place of the "Enter" key the 'Z' key needs to be on the Function key So far, there might be a way to do those, but the 'W' and 'V' keys both need to be where the...

    Correct procedure for removing SD cards?

    If I try and unmount the SD cards, this operation fails saying they are in use, even though I am not running any of the PNDs on the disk. What is the proper procedure for removing an SD card? I hope I don't need to shut down my pandora to do so.

    vim missing syntax.vim

    I tried enabling syntax highlighting on vim, but I get the error message that /usr/share/vim/vim72/syntax/syntax.vim is missing. Is this in a separate package? of so, how do I install it? Never mind "sudo opkg list vim*" followed by "sudo opkg install vim-syntax" got me what I needed.

    USB OTG port does not appear to be working.

    I bought a mini-A to full sized A adaptor so I could use my USB OTG port. First, I'm really annoyed with Amazon since what was delivered was a mini-B to full sized A adaptor. The picture clearly showed a mini-A connector. The text did not mention what type of connector A or B, just that it was...

    Bluetooth issues...

    I have a GPS, Qstarz BT-Q818XT that is supposed to connect though bluetooth. Sometimes it connects on the 1st attempt, today I went through more than 30 attempts including rebooting the pandora, power cycling the GPS, stopping & starting bluetooth multiple times each before I got a connection...

    Navit. Any opinions?

    Navit looks like it would be a good GPS tool (I would much prefer vector based maps to bitpmaps). I tried to get it running on my Ubuntu machine without any success.  Is the difficult configuration (poorly documented hand editing of an XML file) the primary reason there is no PND for it yet?

    Wiki FAQ seems to be missing...

    When I click on the wiki FAQ link it goes to a text page that has a text link (not clickable). If you copy & paste that link into your browser, you go to a FAQ about the wiki rather than a FAQ about the Pandora.

    Tried to follow instructions near the end of this page: http://pandorawiki.org/GPS When I try and install espeak I get a rather uninformitive error message: Collected errors: * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package espeak. Does anyone know what this is intended to mean?
