    I get this error in /var/log/messages

    2012-02-16T14:42:04.626312Z [897] webos-device user.warning activitymanager[1671]: [activitymanager.resourcecontainermanager] No container currently mapped for [BusId appId:us.ryanhope.wterm]

    Any ideas why wTerm apparently works on other prełs but won't on mine?
    Out of frustration with this over the past few weeks I finally took my phone on a trip to the Doctor, under the assumption that it must be something else (eg a patch) I had installed that was clashing.

    I'm now sat here with a freshly doctored phone..All I've done is connect to my WiFi network, use WebOsQuickInstall to install Preware and then immediately install wTerm. It lauched, asked me to set a root password, and then presented me with that familiar grey screen.


    and if I manually launch the wterm app from the commandline I get:

    Am I on the right track with the "No container mapped" message, or is that unrelated?
    Any other thoughts on how I can figure out what's causing this and more importantly how I can resolve it?

    It's a UK Spec Pre3 with upgraded 16GB storage thanks to the webOS Internals team.

    Hi all,

    I have a problem to su to root. I searched the config files, the thread and the Internet but I'm not able to solve it.
    When I try to su to root I get the following:
    Code:
    wterm@TP~$ su - root
    Password:
    ': No such file or directory
    wterm@TP~$
    I checked /etc/passwd for the shell entry and it points to /bin/sh as it should. I also checked the .profile file in /var/home/root and it only contains the xtern entry.

    I tried do remove wterm, rebooted and reinstalled wterm. Set a new root password. But all without any change.

    What could be the problem?

    Look for a quote syntax error in your profile file.

    Hi Rod, for a test I renamed the .profile in /var/home/root still the same problem.

    Just installed 0.4.0 and have the 3/4 keyboard issue. I seem to be blind, where do I find the keyboard lock toggle?

    It's "rotation lock" you're looking for, and you will find it by tapping the clock or battery icon at the top-right of your screen.
    Just turn it on and off and wTerm will be able to see the current state.

    Is there a way to set my WTerm preferences such that it opens as Root just like XTERM does?
    Edit: Just to clarify, Setting the misc Preferences to root works when WTerm is started from its icon but when it is kicked off from Just Type, it starts as non-root wterm.

    Also, is there a way to remove the Password that I set in Setup?

    It's open source - any developer can pick up where he left off...

    Yes, but it would lose its Magic.

    This is a great app. Nice improvement over having to use xterm for sure, dead or not.

    Fully agree. I hope someone takes up the challenge to continue its development.

    how do i press 1 2 3 4 / + - * etc in veer?

    the modifier key is treated as alt, which mean when i press 1 (the modifier key + e) it becomes alt+1. which is treated as '1' (the alt is ignored) in /bin/sh, but treated at alt+1 in bash/python/vim etc, so i cannot type 1 in them

    the key is on the right side of the keyboard, underneath the bksp arrow key, press the shift button at the same time as the | key

    Hello, I've got the same problem as rwhtiby, I have looked for .profile in /var/home/root but didn't find it, there is just .pulse-cookie file in that directory.
    Has anybody another idea ?

    Anybody figure out a way to get the pipe on a phone (2.2.4) keyboard? That's the main thing this app is missing

    The enter key is just that in all modes, no pipe in wterm.

    I built and use the git version that provides a "sym" popup with everything anyone can need.
    Though, dot key is not working anymore in this version. I didn't took the time to debug that, and just added it as a virtual key. In the end, I reworked the popup layout so the extra keys I often use are easily accessible.

    It's in the file "src/enyo/charSelector.jsjsjs&$quot$;, $array$ &$quot$;$chars$&$quot$; $in$ $object$ $className$ '$enyo$-$popup$ $charSelect$'.

    Someday if I'm not lazy, I'll try to figure out how to get another layer of mapping for the physical keys. So I can directly map everything I'm missing. But the current settings works well enough for what I do.

    Too busy with dissertation work to spend any time on mobile apps let alone fix bugs for wTerm on such old webOS hardware.
