Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Our download center (http://fingerfans.dreamhosters.com/download/) has this PDF (http://fingerfans.dreamhosters.com/download/TouchStreamBooklet.pdf and the four-corner touch is described on pages 16-19: four-corner touch + Shift-V switches to Dvorak, and four-corner + q gives you Qwerty. And yes, do...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

How can I get the V1.6 utilities installed? Since we don't have v1.6 including Java, I would first install v1.53 including Java and then install v1.60 excluding Java afterward. You should end up with the new FW version and the Java version from the previous FW package. Have you tried that? Did it w...

Re: device is dead, only lasted 8 years!

As much as I hate to say this, our devices have become very cheap on Ebay these days. They used to sell for many, many hundreds of dollars (even as high as $2000!) but no longer. So if all else fails, you can probably get a "fairly cheap" replacement from Ebay. Or check in our marketplace ...

All FW downloads in one place!

Re: Annoying automatic left/right hand recognition, iGesture

Hi David!
O man I'm sorry t hear that you're still troubled by this. I haven't had any similar experiences and no ideas to help you on.
Do you have more than one FW device, and if so is only that one affected? That could reveal whether it's a device problem or operation.

I honestly don't know, I've never tried. Have you tried it since you posted your question? What was the result?

I'm reminding myself that I wanted to publish something about a WinXP disk image for this purpose. I got some new infrastructure that can help me, so I hope to deliver something soonish!

Re: Colemak: Dvorak is so last century

Yep, platform availability is a huge factor, and also hands-down the most important reason why I've now also chosen to learn Dvorak and none of the other (more enticing!) alternatives. If I were only using Linux machines, it would probably be easy, but my Windows workstation at work is locked down p...

Re: Suggestion: U.S. International & MacNTouch / DigiTouch

I was thinking to add something into the TSLP configuration. I didn't realize that your Ctrl+Alt examples were actual mappings.

Re: Suggestion: U.S. International & MacNTouch / DigiTouch

I don't know if I missed it originally but I came across this just now. Using combos with dead keys (that's what they're called, although zombie keys might be more fitting because they turn out to not be really dead after all!) is a neat trick that gives me a new idea: I'm wondering whether I can de...

Re: Colemak: Dvorak is so last century

Colemak is nice and all, but there's an even better layout, proven by statistical evaluation. It's called the Workman layout and it looks interesting. My biggest concerns are a lack of international characters, and lack of OS support. Of course Linux has it covered, but Windows and Android ... not s...

Re: New Apple iPad Multi-Touch Keyboard

This looks interesting! Thank you for sharing. I'm glad to see that they are *finally* doing something in the keyboard area! It's no surprise that they are going to use it for the iPad first. Perhaps a desktop model will follow, and (*really* perhaps) that desktop model could be used with non-Macs a...

Re: Fingerworks TouchStream LP in excellent condition

It's sad to see that our devices aren't getting higher prices anymore. I guess it mostly indicates a shrinking user base; too few people who understand and appreciate the devices.

Re: Hello From Los Angeles!

@jmadison, I used to have a TSLP on my desk at work but the cleaning ladies are so careless that I come back to a rather disrupted desk in the morning. I don't want to risk any damage to this unit, so I'd rather have it as a spare than have it damaged by others. I have a TLSP at home with a Danish l...

Re: Hello From Los Angeles!

Hi Ron - and welcome! The point in the cable that you mention is known to be a weak point, but as you already figured out, the fix is fairly uncomplicated: pop it open and re-solder the cable. The biggest hurdle is opening the case. There are a number of locking tabs along all four sides, and it's v...

Yes, you might want to re-list every two months or so. Some people are not looking all the time. I'm subscribing to a search but I'm sure most people simply take an occasional look.

Re: What is the typing surface made of?

I can confirm this; I also remember that it's lexan. It was mentioned on the original website which also stated that the lexan is clear and the layout is printed on the underside to make you you won't ever be able to rub it off during use. The sample Digitouch I received came disassembled and includ...

Re: Kyrstellaine

It's been a good run for the Touchstream keyboards. But at this point, they've been gone for longer than they've been around. Ouch. Seriously, I had not realized that. What a revelation! Thank you for opening my eyes. Frankly I don't think we'll see anything like the TouchStream ever again. Apple g...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Yes you're right, it is "just" Java. But the problem is that the FingerWorks software was written to work on a (now) very old Java version, so the software won't run on modern Java's anymore. What's worse, the old (FW-compatible) Java won't run on newer OS versions like WinVista, Win7, and...
