Touch Pad Double tap to select not working

Dear All,

We have XO-4 with following configuration 
- XO-4 Model SKU326
- sugar 0.100
- build 13.2.0
- firmware Q7B45
- touchpad : "FSPPS/2 - Sentelic AVC Finger Sensing Pad"

Everything works fine except the double tap to select on touchpad. Even with OK prompt test of touchpad, the double tap has no action.


same build on XO-4 model SKU320  with 'SynRelPS/2 - Synaptics" touchpad is working as expected.

What could be the solution?


Thanks,
Bishnu

There is no official "root" process in Android user build. But there
are bunch of root tools you may can try on Android 4.3, I never tried
them and not sure which secure hole they use, but they may haven't
been fixed by XO-4 Android.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2565758

Alternatively,
* Serial port has root access.
* Rebuild Android in engineer mode gives you root access out of box.
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Android/Building/Variants
* XO-4 special secure hole, boot to sugar, unpack the Android ramdisk
in boot partition, change secure configuration, repack ramdisk and
replace it.

Not tested, only USB mess storage is tested. I don't think USB GPS
dongle will work any way since there should be a GPS hardware abstract
layer for Android needs to be implemented.

Assume you are talk about A2DP?  It's not ported on XO-4, but HSP
should work fine.

I have no idea of this.

Keyboard mapping is here:
http://dev.laptop.org/git/users/ben/android_vendor_olpc_xo4/tree/keyboard/olpc_keyboard.kl?h=android-4.3.1-xo4

It located in system/usr/keylayout, you may need remount system
partition as rw to change it or change it when booted to sugar.

Regards,
Ben

android on XO-4 questions

i've been playing with android on XO-4 lately.  i had tried an early
release, it was buggy, and i didn't have much use for it anyway, so
i'd not tried the latest.  it actually works pretty well.

but i have some questions.  i don't know if anyone with answers or
experience is reading here, but i may as well start somewhere.

    - is it possible to get root?  there's a terminal emulator
	pre-installed, and it's possible to browse the filesystem
	and do a few things, but being root would give access to
	more.  (logs, for instance)

    - are the USB ports fully supported?  i can't seen to get any
	app that exists to allow access to a USB GPS dongle to work,
	for instance.

    - has anyone gotten bluetooth audio to work?  i know there's
	a limitation in the XO-4 hardware regarding audio -- i
	think stereo headsets won't work -- but can any audio work?
	(here's a case where looking at logs and dmesg output might
	be helpful)

    - i could probably get audio to work via an external (USB)
	bluetooth dongle, but a) USB devices would need to be
	recognized, and b), i think i'd need to disable the internal
	bluetooth.

finally, a different sort of question:
    - i have exactly one app (an important one, unfortunately) in
	which the mapping of ctrl-ESC to emulate the android hardware
	"Menu" button doesn't work.  does anyone know where that
	keyboard mapping is implemented?  i'd happily replace the
	app-switcher function on the rotate button, and make it
	a true Menu key, instead.

Re: [IAEP] Announcing OLPC OS 13.2.4 for XO-1

Great news .. indeed.

I am trying out the new 13.2.4 release in my XO-1 now.

When I try to use the sugar-install-bundle to install/add new
activities (e.g. recall-4.xo) it stall at the end with the message:

caution: excluded filename not matched: mimetype

I need to use Ctrl-C as keyboard interrupt  to continue.

In a simple script that contain a number of sugar-install-build I have to do many Ctrl-C to enable it to run.
In previous 13.2.1 I need no manual intervention.

Advice?

Re: Community XO software builds

> Who actually is using/testing these images? Why?

I am as I try to to see if I could still get some life out of XO with whatever development that is going forward
with upgrades.  

> Is there a reason you are not looking into using an official (OLPC or deployment) build?

Use that also but community driven images may be a good way to test things for feedback before things get official.

> - Have you engaged OLPC or another party to work on changes?

I try to and the best things is I get some help along the way for a little DIY with my limited technical skills. 

> - What direction do you believe the builds should go?

1. To make the XO multi-media ready :-)  or provide scripts that we can just run to for enabling multi-media
experience with the XO. Hate to see spinning "wheels without images :-(

2. Have builds that target specific age groups with the right activities loaded or displayed.

>Building XO builds by repacking existing work is relatively trivial.
>But the low-level kernel, driver, and OS work necessary to support XOs >with newer operating systems (as
well as newer XO batteries) is something >I cannot do, and where we really need help.

Yes and I hope OLPC is still providing the necessary financial support for things to happen.

Build and they may come.  

Thanks.

OLPC Debian Jessie

I've been running Debian Jessie on my XO-1 for about a week. These 
<http://pastebin.com/EktdMcjk> are the instructions that I wrote 
detailing my process. Can somebody go over these and make sure that 
there aren't any errors or omissions before I post this on the wiki?

Thanks,
Nathan

Re: Devel Digest, Vol 109, Issue 19

I also believe based on some observations in Rwanda that the firmware 
was modified.

Error on XO4 update to 32016o4.zd

Hello OLPC devs,

I tried to update an XO4 touch to 32016o4.zd. It looked like it went
fine, but...

It won't boot, with the following error (see image attached).

Hints are very welcome. Impatient young one around.

:-)

Announcing OLPC OS 13.2.4 for XO-1.5

G'day,

We're pleased to announce the release of OLPC OS 13.2.4 for XO-1.5.

It is Sugar 0.104 on Fedora 18; very similar to 13.2.3 but with some
fixes to software update and language control panels.

Details of new features, known issues, and how to download, install or
upgrade can be found in the release notes:

http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_notes/13.2.4

Many thanks to all contributors, testers, upstreams, and those who
have provided feedback of any kind.

Developers who need restricted software components, such as the Adobe
Flash plugin, GStreamer MP3 codecs, should contact me directly for
assistance.
