Re: Swedisk keyboard layout

Of course you can also do this from the CLI (F12 or Ctrl-F2 for the multi tasking version):

*help keyboard
==> Help on keyword Keyboard
*Keyboard with no parameter displays the currently selected keyboard.
Type *Countries to list available countries.

Syntax: *Keyboard [<country name>]*

Re: Compiling Ada for ARM

I don't know if anybody has menitoned this but Ada has been supported by RISC OS for quite some time now, IIRC !CDburn was written in Ada. Shouldn't be a problem using Ada on the RPi under RISC OS.

Re: SD card no longer works... or does it?!?

Instead of using an SD card you could get a smallish µSD with an adapter. That way the adapter stays in the RPi all the time and you'd just swap µSD cards. OTOH they tend to be more expensive, certainly over 3 quid.

Re: RISC OS Putty and Xming ?

No, RISC OS isn't exactly designed as a server OS like unix.
There is at least one VNC server however and Telnet if you only want the CLI.

Re: I made a Raspberry PI Laptop

Is it necessary to physically disconnect Lapdock and Pi after shutdown? My model A Pi is powered via the Lapdock itself but I modified it with a switch to cut power to the Pi. After shutting down the OS I simply switch the Pi off and close the lid. Not sure if the Lapdock is happy with it though, yo...

Examples of what I could see myself paying for on RISC OS would be a mobile broadband app and a decent 3d racing game for my son.
Can't help you with the latter but there's !CommCentre for working with 3G dongles. Guess what: it's free!

There's an app for searching: Steve Fryatt's !locate Apart from "running" programs "at boot" via configure (which of course places them on the IconBar) I also like to make use of !AppDock. That way often used apps or even folders are just a click away.

Glad you got things working. As for porting software over from the RiscPC you'll need to make it 32-bit clean, this'll give you an idea. BASIC programs ususally runs just fine, whereas assembler of course doesn't. You'll need to recompile your software to make it ARMv6/7 save, either using GCC or RO...

Re: must seen by the filer

Easy! RISC OS has to "see" the App in order to make use of it. Always having to open the folder/directory would be a bit naff though. Open Configure (menue click on the Raspberry Switcher icon on the right), click Boot and then "look at". Then add your application via drag and drop. From now on RISC...
