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

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.js", array "chars" 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.
