On-screen keyboard layouts

Several different layouts for the on-screen keyboard, including possibility to create your own layout.

>>> Keyboard layouts


Fred is a logical arcade game. The goal is to navigate a little pink spider, Fred, through the system of platforms. Fred can not die–you can touch whatever objects you like and fall from arbitrary height. You cannot go up. Well, at least if you don't use a special "lift" platform to levitate. Have you seen a levitating spider?

There are more creatures than Fred in the game. Baggers. Yellow, dull, apathetic straight-moving spheric critters. They cannot harm Fred. But they are stubborn. Bagger heads for the certain fixed point and won't disappear until he reaches it. But even when he vanishes, you haven't won yet. If anything touches a trampoline platform... here he goes again.

There are some "undocumented" keys in the game. In the main menu, by pressing + or - key on the top of your device, you can switch languages (currently only English and Czech). In the game, pressing the Back key gives you a game menu. In the password dialog, pressing Up and Down changes the actual letter, pressing Right moves to the next letter. No on-screen keyboard, sorry. Use the save and load feature to save you a lot of keypresses.

The game also contains a level set for two players. It's hardly playable on N800 due to lack of hardware buttons, though.

Fred is quite old project inspired by a game "Fred +3" dated to good old times. First version was written for MS-DOS, later it was rewritten in C under Linux. Thanks to SDL, the library used for graphics, it was easily ported to Windows. Recently, English language was added (the previous versions were in Czech only) and the game was slightly modified to support the Maemo platform.

4-string chords

Useful tool for ukulele, mandolin or four-string banjo players. The tool computes the chords, therefore it is able to display chords for any four-string instrument.

Currently, a few tunings (various ukulele, mandolin and banjo tunnings) are predefined. For other instrument, you will need to set a custom tuning (select "Preferences" from the menu, "Custom" from the Tuning box and select the right tone for each string). Please send me (jbenc at upir dot cz) the tuning and name of your instrument and I will add it to the next version.

English and Czech chord and tone names are supported. If you want other language, send me tone and chord names in that language.

If you have an idea how to make the tool even more useful :-), share it with me. Please note that it's unlikely I would extend the number of strings.

Single click install.

Czech and Slovak date and time

Nokia N800 doesn't contain support for Czech and Slovak format of date and time, numbers, etc. This package adds the support.

You need to activate red pill mode before the installation.

Command navigator (obsolete)

A tool for hackers. Command navigator is a task navigator applet (see the screenshot if you don't know what "task navigator applet" is) allowing execution of an arbitrary command.

Multicolumn menu, easily configurable.

See the Command navigator homepage.

Command navigator is no longer maintained.
