Written for gnome15 by tanktarta on 2011-05-23

This update brings some fixes for the kernel driver. Firstly, 0.6.x completely broke this driver, so that has been fixed. Secondly, the LCD will now work on a G15 with this driver, and in theory it should also add G13 support. See here - - for some guidance on setting up the kernel driver.

This release also includes a few bug fixes, including fixing timeouts in "Indicator Messages" plugin.

Gnome15 - 0.4.0 - New Plugins, Bug Fixes and Hardware Support

Written for gnome15 by tanktarta on 2011-01-23

Highlights of this latest version include a new "Processes" plugin where you can view and kill running processes, and a "G15Daemon" plugin (for the G19 only) that emulates the g15daemon network protocol, allowing any g15daemon compatible scripts and applications to work on a G19. There are also many bug fixes, and the beginnings of a DBUS API.

The Gnome15 PPA also contains a SVN snapshot of libg15 and g15daemon with additional patches from the g15tools forums and myself to support the G110 and G510. This has not yet been tested on real hardware yet, so feedback would be appreciated.
