Contents

Use case

Willi wants to hear music when he is jogging, but he can't because "lock down" gets his neo in suspend mode where he can't here music and "dim only" won't prevent accidental triggering of events in his pocket.

Idea

Make an uncloseable widget, which can only be hidden when the user draws a specific motion on the screen.

Realisation

The user has to drag something from the buttom of the screen to the top of the screen. A first version can be found at http://homepages.upb.de/olaf/dinge/openmoko/display_lock/neod_0.1.0+svnr3421-r6_neo1973.ipk At the momment there are two themes available, the puzzle and the choice theme (see sreenshots below). they can be found here: http://homepages.upb.de/olaf/dinge/openmoko/display_lock/moko_choice/ and here: http://homepages.upb.de/olaf/dinge/openmoko/display_lock/moko_puzzle/ just put the .png's in the /usr/share/neod/ folder of your neo.
