Notes

UTF-8

GutenFlash expects UTF-8 files. So for reading a file originally in iso-8859-1, please convert it before to UTF-8 in a shell terminal:

iconv -f iso-8859-1 Reveries.txt -t utf-8 > Reveries.utf8

NameError: name 'init' is not defined

You may want to update the pygtk __init__.py file as suggested in #1718

Preferences

Create your .gutenflash.conf file:

gutenflash --showcfg > ~/.gutenflash.conf

and edit it.

Download

Current mokoified version (ipk package and bitbake recipe): http://soft.oralux.net/gutenflash/

Upstream website: http://toykeeper.net/programs/flash/

Toolchain: Make ipk

The comment below might be addressed elsewhere (irc, list?) (GC).


*download snapshot from http://toykeeper.net/programs/flash/files/
