Tuner tool on N800

Hi all,

I don't know when I will find time to finish a new release of the tuner tool. I've some new features partly written.

I tried the current build today in my N800 and seems to work as expected.

Chris Jones noticed me that there's a problem with the audiotestsrc gstreamer element which is not provided by default on N800. To solve this issue you should install the gstreamer0.10-plugins-base-extra package manually.

More improvements on nethack

Hi all,

Finally I managed to fix the feature related to context menu and the inventory dialog. Now works fine with Nokia 770 (tested on mistral and scirocco) and with Nokia N800 (tested on bora).

Thanks to Tilman Vogel, he sent me a patch with some more features. Mainly sumarized as:

- Toolbar expand/unexpand depending on full screen state
- On toolbar added new commands "What's here?" (:) and "What's there?" (;)
- Fixed endless loop asking for "more details?" when using the central minipad button with the "identify a map symbol" command
- Changed search button icon.

Enjoy with this new release.

Nethack again :)

Hello all.

A lot of changes in my life since my last post in this blog.
Now I have a new job, I'm working at Fluendo since September that's the reason why I've been really busy last months. Now I've to drive a pair of hours each day moving me from Igualada to Barcelona, less time for personal projects :(.
The new job is really interesting. Improve gstreamer and codecs for embedded and desktop platforms are mainly my tasks at Fluendo.

My first Nokia 770 is one year old and I want celebrate it with you, a new release of Nethack is an appropriate present. This was my first developing project for that toy.

Some promised features are now in Nethack, but I haven't tested it completely. Who can play games when is more interesting write the code :).

New features (look at the screenshots):

- Finally I finished the pad whit a nice look thanks to Christophe Dumas.
- Context menu for actions on objects at inventory dialog.
- Different flavours of nethack, now you can choose between graphical or ascii views.
- Some minor fixes.

That's all, thanks to everybody that does maemo an amusing experience every day.
