Re: Alternative Keyboard solution

Also he posted it in Marketplace, which doesn't have a name or description that would imply FingerWorks product only. :wink:

Re: PMs just sit in Outbox

I think they sit in the outbox until the user who you sent them to logs in. I noticed this on another forum that uses the same software, and several people confirmed that theirs were doing the same thing.

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Shawn, Pop up the diagnostics utility and see what device it says is attached. I'm not sure what you'd do if it says iGesture, but I'm guessing it wouldn't be manage to reconfigure the left side as well. This almost sounds familiar, as in it might have happened to someone once before back when Finge...

Re: An update on the anti-spam efforts

I have allowed a post or two, but I was unsure whether or not to allow a post by a new user in the marketplace (I haven't heard of it happening, but the rarity of our devices does leave potential for a scammer to take advantage of). Presumably I should allow any such post regarding a FingerWorks dev...

Re: Windows meta key

If you have any free tap gestures, you could set one up. I use some of the blank keys for that with macros instead of even having a gesture, it's just like a single keypress. The blank keys I am referring to are 3 keys left of F4,F5,F6, 1 key below F6 above Backspace, 1 key below F12 above Space, 3 ...

Re: iGesture Numpad needs repair

I think I would replace the ribbon cable before considering trying to find someone to fix it (and I would certainly hope Minox would do that, because I don't know where else I would find someone). I believe you can replace the ribbon cable without actually disassembling the pads, because you don't h...

Re: Windows meta key

Interesting, I never have used that. I always thought the four-finger modifiers taps were modifiers, I didn't realize that tapping them was the same as tapping the keys (I just verified by tapping the lower rows for ALT, but was unable to find the Windows key). Regardless, I use the Windows key on t...

Re: Random Characters get typed

I'm not certain, but it seems like a bad ribon cable has been the cause of that particular section being faulty more often than not. However, it could also by that the chip used to communicate between the two boards got zapped (I'm thinking that when it gets zapped the entire left half dies, but aga...

Re: Random Characters get typed

I also ground myself to my computer. In my office, my computer's case has a lot of plastic, so I reach to the back of it (and often get shocked, making me glad I didn't forget that time).

Re: How to not appear slacking?

I never really worried about that. I get my work done and my employers know it. I do wonder when I make a phone call, though, and I'm talking to someone who knows I'm on the computer doing work and typing stuff, whether or not they notice that they can't hear any noise from it at all over the phone....

Re: Random Characters get typed

I try to always ground myself before touching my TSLP, both to limit this and to prevent being grounded to (and frying) one of the sensitive chips in the TSLP. That said, mine might have been doing some pretty random input yesterday, but I'm pretty sure it's weather and static related. I seldom get ...

Re: iGesture Numpad needs repair

The USB cable is conneced to the pad via solder, so it couldn't be "pressed back in." That said, I believe there are posts on this forum (and/or the archived firgerworks forum) showing people repairing that joint. I believe in one case either the same cable or a new one was soldered on, an...

I like how Ivan, who is arguably our MOST active user isn't even on that screen. I admit I haven't seen too much new as of late, but this forum was never overly active, and some people who hadn't stopped by it ages stopped by over the past few months (Minox, for instance). I don't like what it could...

Re: How do you protect the ribbon cable?

Yup, three spares. If I remember correctly, they were cheap and the shipping wasn't, so I figured buying any less wasn't justifiable. I'd have a spare dvorak TSLP sitting in a closet too if prices hadn't gotten so out of hand.

Re: How do you protect the ribbon cable?

I bought three spares the first time their failure was discussed. I also always leake the TS on the stand and move just the stand. I don't have much trouble with it sliding around (don't know why not), and don't imagine I'll do anything more (hopefully don't have to find/use the spares).

Re: Using Multitouch Utils with Windows 7 (x64) ?

No, if xWinder works (which is GREAT news to me), then it is because it uses an HID device, which doesn't require a driver. HID = Human Input Device, and they are standard, whereas the MultiTouch device is a proprietary communication device that requires a driver, which has to be compatible with the...

Re: Using Multitouch Utils with Windows 7 (x64) ?

You are correct, there was a Multitouch USB Devices section added to Device Manager, and it had (in my case) a TouchStream ST/LP in it. Unfortunately, Win7 uses different drivers than XP even if it's 32-bit (WinXP is 5.1, Win 7 is 6.1, so completely different major version kernels). That said, I thi...

Re: Graphics should be colorblind-friendly

There, the new images are in place again! :-) This is just a quick hack and will probably be destroyed again next time there is an automatic update. But those updates are good to get, so I'm okay with that. The next step would be to either copy this layout as a new style and use that, or create a s...

Great, thanks. Hopefully making a custom theme would be as simple as copying the existing theme you used and then making the minor modifications you made to the custom copy. -Dustin

Re: Mobile Phone

I'm thinking he means shut down, as in an alt-f4 gesture followed by an enter keystroke (along with plenty of other irrelevant input) from the radio interference equal an actual shut down. Unfortunately, I don't know how one would prevent a phone that causes this to happen from doing so. I also don'...

Re: Torben Gundtofte-Bruun (again)

If you don't want to take the TS to work and you do want to learn Dvorak, you could get a regular USB hardwired dvorak to do all of that, just wouldn't be able to change keys around the way you could with the TS, although I believe other keyboards have been discussed in this very forum (or is it the...
