Re: Asus Eee Note EA800 (e-book reader/drawing tablet)

Thanks for the quick answer! I'll search a bit more about the possibility of updating its Linux innards (I see Asus has the free parts on its support page: https://www.asus.com/supportonly/EA-800 ... _Download/).

Re: Asus Eee Note EA800 (e-book reader/drawing tablet)

Assuming this is still for sale, I have a couple of questions (sorry if already answered): - battery usage (how much can you work on it between recharges) - can one upgrade, or replace the Linux distribution that the device runs? I managed to install Linux on a newish cheap Chinese tablet (touchscre...

Re: Genius idea of the day

I'm afraid all this USB power/data direction handling stuff is way over my head, unfortunately :/ Some new tablets have larger batteries, I think the simplest would be to just rely on that tablet's internal battery and let the keyboard draw from it too; and in the end, you have to charge just one ba...

Re: Genius idea of the day

On https://thingiverse.com there are a lot of designs for iPad/tablets stands - one adapted to have a base handle gripping on the keyboard to keep the iPad at the right viewing angle (and maybe pushed further back) could do the trick - but you need to design it and print it (there are 3d-printing on...

Indeed, but this wouldn't be a big problem - that's the joy of 3d printing, you design something just for you :) And the battery idea is great (especially for older tablets), if either the tablet allows charging and keyboard detection at the same time; otherwise an extra switch (charge/OTG) could do...

Don't rush it, maybe browse some more this forum (and the wiki), see what keyboards people recommend? Then see what switch type you like (tactile, clicky, linear etc.).

Re: keyboard layout PT

Hi (and welcome!), just to make sure, you know that you can choose PT layout input in your operating system, it's not keyboard dependent: i.e. there will be a mismatch between some of the keycap legends and what you actually type when you press them. If that's ok for you, you can buy any ANSI (US) o...

Re: Stuff you just bought

I bought a 3d printer ("Ender 3X", 200$ shipping included, from a warehouse in Europe no less!). Since then, and because I have the keyboards I want (Topre etc.), I rarely visit here :( 3d printing finally became cheap and good, and opens nearly-infinite possibilities (imagine making your own cases,...

Wow, the reply I sent you in November 2018 appears as "Yesterday", must be a forum bug.

Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

I *think* I remember some editor that showed an accent like ` or ' after typing such a dead key, although it moved the cursor afterwards (of course after the next letter typed it would do the right thing). It could have been even Notepad or Wordpad, I rarely use Windows nowadays.

Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

Heh, well I rather meant something like this: when you type a dead key, the editor (using low-level keyboard scanning or something similar) shows the accent on current cursor position, maybe flashing it, or in a different color, and then the cursor is kept as is, not moved; so the user can then type...

Re: Origin of each country's QWERTY keyboard layout?

Type writers did have dead keys. In Spanish, for example, the acute accent key was a key that produced the accent but did not move the carriage, then, after it any key typed was let to be printed under the accent. That was a dead key by definition. Heh, editors *could* do that too ... (I mean, it w...
