    Is anyone else seeing this problem? I have to click the wrench at the top-right of the editor to switch to the text editor. I've fixed this in my preferences. Is there a solution to the rich text editor so I can use it more easily?

    Pandora Are Pandora development skills portable to the Pyra?

    I'm considering learning basic porting and packaging. Are the skills portable to the Pyra? If not, I don't even want to bother. Is the PND format still usable on the Pyra? Will existing (basic) Pandora PNDs run as-is on the Pyra? I saw this, but it's ancient...

    Suggestion: Weekly YouTube videos

    A regularly-scheduled short video, showing off some little thing, would do wonders for publicity. Just showing off some tiny thing, talking about a piece of software, introducing a new person or just talking about interesting topics on the forum.. these things would help connect the developers...

    Configuring the tray's CPU Speed plugin

    In the tray / notification area is a button. Clicking it gives me a fold-out menu with CPU Speed as an option. Clicking that gives me a list of CPU speeds to change to, or change to a custom speed. How do I modify that list? The plugin GUI does not have anything implemented yet.

    Hardware Replacement keymat that isn't shiny

    One of my complaints, and the reason I shelved my Pandora for so long (again), was that the keys are *very* difficult to see. I see replacements are sold on the official store, but was another keymat ever designed?

    bluetooth headsets, a partly-working solution

    All of this would be magically handled, with no user intervention, if only alsa were updated. To get straight to the point, here's a replacement ~/.asoundrc to force a newly-opened alsa-using application to play to an...

    update alsa, or the kitten gets it

    bluetooth headsets don't work properly, and require user-intervention to partly-work. At best, only some applications work, and what does work is still semi-broken. From what I can tell, alsa needs to be updated: Update alsa. Or I will pet a kitten every hour until you do.

    Alarm clock functionality - sleep and wakeup via scripts

    I'd like to write some scripts which can control the Pandora's wakefulness / standby state. Wake up and perform tasks at specific times, sleep/standby on specific events or times. Is there software provided with the Pandora which I can send a particular time for the system to be brought out...

    I'm trying to install I read and understand the instructions. I believe I'm following them correctly. With an empty newly-partitioned (ext2) SD card, I am unable to get "Boot from SD1" to show. I have tried reformatting (ext3) according to the wiki's Formatting SD...

    Thunar occasionally unable to select folders

    Everyday usage of Thunar 1.0.2 occasionally has it stop letting me browse into folders. I cannot double-click, I cannot use the right nub to click and I cannot press enter to get into a folder. This seems to be random. While using it, it just stops. Restarting the application it will...

    Pandora Collectable Coin

    GET LAMP has been shipping its first orders with a collectable coin manufactured by The Monterey Company. It's spectacularly high quality and inexpensive. Things like cases, signatures, stamps and other such ideas have been talked about before. I wonder if a collectable coin could be a good idea.
