Description:

You have a Logitech MX5000 Keyboard and would like to use its nice LCD screen ? Then you've come to the right place. This python script will tell you when you have new mail(s) via your keyboard's LCD. Before you can use this programm you must install mx5000-tools which can be found here : http://home.gna.org/mx5000tools/

I wrote a little web page to explain the steps toward setting up easily your keyboard here :

I don't really have time to improve this work right now but feel free to add comments and suggestions.

This app has needed a frontend for a while I was going to write one but I have never had time and I thought the mxtools might be dead as they haven't been worked on now for a year.

My Issue:
I'm getting a Segfault, this could be because I have Qt4 installed and this maybe written for qt3. Also can you release the ui files? Thanks

I don't really know what Qt version I used to do this app, i'm kind of new to python. I just used the PyQt module as well as PyKDE. I'm not home right now so i can't upload the ui file but I'll do it as soon as I can, it won't be very accurate though 'cause I use to make a .ui file and then add some lines after transforming it in a .py file.

About the segfault error, I had one when turning off the computer under KDE while the app was still running but now i'm using Gnome and I don't have it anymore. Anyway, you probably know more about this than I do.

I can't compile mx5000tools in my OpenSuse 10.3 x86_64.
I have installed netpbm 10.26.44-10.x86_64 and libnetpbm10 and libnetpbm-devel same versions.
Now in configure execution error netpbm not found:
Quote:checking for linux/hiddev.h... yes
checking pbm.h usability... yes
checking pbm.h presence... yes
checking for pbm.h... yes
checking for pbm_readpbm in -lnetpbm... no
configure: error: You need netpbm installed

I can't find a solution in official home page and bug trackers.

PD: The function pbm_readpbm is present in file pbm.h as bit** pbm_readpbm(......), if its changed to void bit** pbm_readpbm(...) the error is fatal. I don't know the tree headers. Thanks

Wow ! I can't believe it, I just posted this yesterday and someone already tried it out ! :-).

Well, unfortunately, I'm not the guy who did the hard work on this. I mean, I didn't do the main programm myself (i.e. mx5000-tools). So if you are experiencing problems installing it you should probably ask Olivier Crête, the author of the programm.

I personnaly had no problem compiling it, I just had to install netpbm-devel and glib2. And I would add that you probably know more than me about how this whole compiling things work, so sorry but I can't be of any help here.
