Hey Everyone Check this out.
If anyone can get it up and working please mention it here in easy to follow step to step guide.
It's two lines *after* you've replaced a core binary.. see step 1..
It is funny..
Droid: Ha! My android phone has 5 desktops, beating your N900's 4 desktops..
Maemo: 9.. 9 Desktops
haha *its funny*
the joys of open source
I have successfully implemented a 9 Screen / Desktop setup on my N900. I have also included instructions on my website if anyone is interested or see this link:
no need for hacking or anything like that, its very simple, download and install matan's modified hildon-desktop from here (its a lot better than the priginal one ) http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=856923&postco
than install this package (it was in the devels, but for some reason they took it out ) http://uploaded.to/file/af5qrp .
open this app (its called desktop+ ) scroll right, and choose the number of homescreens you want, click yes, and thats it .
when i tried to install the 1st link with app man said unable to install package incomplete?
worked great with me, anyway to get the extra homescreens using my way or the x-term way you need the modified hildon-desktop by matan, google it, and download it at your own risk .
@skoobyman i didn't understand .
@scoobyman i didn't understand .
Just saying that using your download link for Matan modified Hildon Desktop elicits this result
good to hear that it worked with you man.
@moradeeb here is what you should do to install it via x-terminal , first of a.. you need to install the package rootsh, download the file and place it on your n900 (MyDocs) .
than open x-terminal and type : sudo gainroot
than type : dpkg -i /home/user/MyDocs/hildon-desktop_matan_2.2.140-1+0
2.2? The latest release is 3.3
So, now it seems we can have the background images associated with the extra desktops too?
That will be useful( otherwise desktops without background image was no fun and rather useless).
