Is anyone else having issues getting this patch to work using Patchmanager 3 Beta ???

Maybe there are conflicts. You can click on the patch entry and there should be a list of possibly conflicting patches...

Are you meant to install from OpenRepos or the PatchManager Web Catalog? The web catalog on patch manager only shows the old version 1.0.0 and does not allow it to be installed, and when I install it from OpenRepos the patch does not seem to apply :(

It doesn't seem ro support SFOS 3.1.0 yet...

Umm, there's already 3.1.0? I'm running 3.0.3.10 (Hossa), and for me it works. I can't test anything else.
What is the problem? Is it impossible to apply the patch or are there other symptoms?

It was Storeman issue alright.

zypper refresh

helped!

Okay, it looks like my Storeman client is really acting up after upgrade. I think I'll have to do a clean reinstall to it...

SFOS 3.1.0 was released in EA a few days ago, not yet for all users.

Does this work with Patchmanager 3 Beta (https://openrepos.net/content/patchmanager3beta/patchmanager-3-beta ) ?

As the mod installs fine and says it got activated but it doesn't seem to work

It should - or: I don't know why it shouldn't... Did you restart the homescreen or maliit-server or your phone?

Hi ichthyosaurus, could you make patch which makes spacebar HIGHER? I have perhaps bigger fingers and instead of space i still write "b" :D could you help? I think ideal height of the spacebar should be +1/3 or +1/2

I guess this should be easily possible... Maybe if I find some time I'll show into this.

Malakay's picture

Great, thank you :) Looking forward to have it :)

ichthyosaurus's picture

Well, I just had a look and I'm sorry, but you there's nothing to look forward to anymore ;). I couldn't figure out how to change the height of only the spacebar row. You can either change all rows or none... :/

Malakay's picture

I tried it manually in some conf where was row divider defined, but yes, it worked on all or none.maybe that SpaceBar-row or spacebar-key

In spacebar-key is some line called rectangle - I suppose it is for rectangle properties, maybe size too.

ichthyosaurus's picture

No, I checked them both. Their height setting will be overridden by the one you already tried to change.

Malakay's picture

Oh :( i definitely need to do something, I write like an idiot because of this :D

ichthyosaurus's picture

Haha :). Well, if you have lots and lots of time you could definitely find a way... Re-training your muscle memory might be easier though :D.

Malakay's picture

Maybe bigger rows could help me. Can you make patch with bigger rows between letters? :) i mean all lines, not only higher spacebar?

ichthyosaurus's picture

Maybe like this: higher keyboard rows?

Mariusmssj's picture

Thank you so much :) This is amazing!

Wow just saw this and need it. But how to install?? Do i need some patchmanager?? Thanks.

ichthyosaurus's picture

Yes, you need this patchmanager; it should get automatically installed with this package, though. After installing the package you will have to activate the patch in Settings->Patchmanager and tap on "Wider Spacebar".
