The reason that I did not use that version, is could not figure out how to fix the <home> and <end> keys. They did not move the cursor to beginning and end of a line.

No problem here:
Key labelled "Ende" moves cursor to end of line
Key labelled "Pos1" moves cursor to beginning of line
without any configuration, OOTB.

That was using a standard external keyboard.
With my convertible Acer Aspire R3-131T I had to hold additionally Fn key (the key between Ctrl and window)
SOLVED?


Oh, I see, haven't tried that. There must be a place for fiddling with the key bindings, like the old mprc?

There is: /usr/share/doc/mp-5/index.html

mp-5 is really nice under X.

But without X, Ctrl Alt F2, (we do need it in console mode for configuring X) I get:
Code:
mp-5
No usable driver found: exiting.

I don't think that $HOME/.mprc works with the mp 5.x series, only the 3.x series.

Yes I see, you are right.

Maybe this is just because my wrong configuration

Fatdog has mp-5.2.8
Quote:
mp: This editor in this package can use terminal or gtk.

Tested OK.

But translations (in all versions) is a night mare
They have minimum-profit.mo
and seem to use only mpsl files in /usr/share/mp5/lang
e.g. de.mpsl
Code:

/* Built by po2mpsl - Don't modify, change the .po file instead */
__I18N__ = {
   "" => "Project-Id-Version: Minimum Profit\nReport-Msgid-Bugs-To: \nPOT-Creation-Date: 2006-01-11 06:09+0100\nPO-Revision-Date: 2006-05-28 13:19+0100\nLast-Translator: Ronny Steiner <Post@SIRSteiner.de>\nLanguage-Team: \nMIME-Version: 1.0\nContent-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8\nContent-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n",
   "&File" => "&Datei",
   "&Edit" => "&Bearbeiten",

I have been starting to use our momanager,
use symlink mp-5 to minimum-profit
and got po and mo updated
but .mo is not used by the program.

No more wondering why they do not have more languages translated Laughing

Thought I share this, too.....

Remember, this is for the famous poulsbo graphics (read more at http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/more-poulsbo-gma500-intel-and-community from 2009, but puppy is for Old computers, isn't it) which does need boot cmdline parameter:
drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/<bult-in or home made>

In the past I was stuck with the resolution from that boot parameter.
So I have been trying a "home made" EDID file.

Using get-edid:
Code:
# get-edid
This is read-edid version 3.0.1. Prepare for some fun.
Attempting to use i2c interface
Looks like no busses have an EDID. Sorry!
Attempting to use the classical VBE interface
Illegal instruction
#
...and I had some fun.

A solution was found on the web using python.
Used it just to see that a "home made" EDID file works.
Wrote a shell script get-edid.sh
Used it just to see that this "home made" EDID file also works.

It worked,
but with the one resolution only,
no change of resolution seemed to be possible.

Then I unplugged VGA cable and used HDMI, success!
Tested also in Fatdog64 switching resolutions with zarfy.

At last I changed back to boot with built-in EDID file
and
guess what ?
No home made EDID file needed at all. (and no get-edid.sh uploaded)

Anyway, here it is: my get-edid.sh. Maybe it will become useful.

Thank you for trying that script
That check_tail is completely false (nobody is perfect )
Please get rid of it by commenting that line:
Code:
# check tail
#[[ "${EDIDhex:252:4}" = "0005" ]] || die "tail is not 0005"


Anyway, main result of my findings for me and for now is:
Code:
Me don't need no
 custom resolution
We don't need no
 myEDID
not at first boot
Laughing

Thanks for your bug report and for thereference info
I think that especially /software.intel.com is stuff for BarryK (I am just a hacker)

Of course, now that I have, it's entirely possible the Intel chipset software guys will come up with an easier way.
